Cancun or Puerto Vallarta? Cancun has white-sand beaches, glam resorts and nightlife. PV has more culture, an authentic Mexican vibe and a tasty culinary scene. But they’re both great Mexican holiday hot spots.
Cancun and Cozumel are two very different creatures. Cancun is famous for its glitzy resorts, white sand beaches and nightlife, while Cozumel is catnip for scuba divers.
From food as art to delicious shrimp tacos, Puerto Vallarta is a culinary hotbed! We love these top Puerto Vallarta restaurants (in all price ranges).
How to choose betweeen Puerto Vallarta and Cabo? PV is lush and jungly, while Cabo has a desert landscape. PV feels more Mexican, while Cabo has more uber-deluxe resorts. Discover the differences, so you pick the best vacay for you.
The Puerto Vallarta Malecon is one of our favorite places to hang out in PV. From its sculptures and sand castles to its restaurants, there’s always something fun going on at this seaside boardwalk.
The resorts in Cabo, Mexico, are among the most deluxe in the world; the boutique hotels are cool too. (Pssst! Discover where the celebs like to bed down.)
The best time to visit Cabo is May to June (beach time!) and October to November (for snorkeling and diving). Whale watching is in winter. Golf is great then too. But any time is a good time to go, depending on what you want to do.
