Tulum is one place that is truly unique. It's eco-chic off the grid style and location while simple by nature is truly a magical experience. a 10km strip with jungle on one side and beach cabanas on the other all with a different flair, flavor and...

What do you get when you cross a crepe with a waffle cone? – Marquesitas, the sweet Yucatecan street food that originated in Mérida and has thankfully found its way to sleepy Isla Holbox. When the hum of generators fills the humid...

Degollado, El Pescadero, B.C.S., Mexico
Baja has a reputation for attracting folks who like to live off the grid, enjoying a laid-back lifestyle and creating their own eccentric businesses. One of those is Art & Beer. The name says it all, really; this spot is worth a stop for its art...

Hwy 19 KM 64.5 Calle a Playa Cerritos # 500 Cerritos Beach, 23310 El Pescadero, B.C.S., Mexico
This hotel is right by Cerritos Beach, the best surfing and swimming beach in the area in Pescadero, a quiet little town about 45 minutes north of Cabo, and 10 minutes south of Todos Santos. I stayed at a "villa", which had 2 bathrooms and 2...

Carr. Transpeninsular, San José del Cabo, B.C.S., Mexico
We found this on the grounds of One&Only Palmilla. I was surprised to learn that the church stems from the 1950s and was here since the property was first being developed. Great care was taken to preserve it amid all the development.

Boca de paila Km 5.5, 77766 Tulum, Q.R., Mexico
On the beach in Tulum, Amansala is a rustic and low-key place to stay and eat. I'm here on my second annual yoga retreat—three hours of yoga in the morning and an hour-and-a-half of Pilates in the evening. The food is fresh, healthy, and...
Save Place
Elsa, 68010 Oaxaca, Oax., Mexico
Beyond Mitla is the beautiful site of Hierve el Agua: natural mineral pools and petrified waterfalls. We took a collectivo taxi up the windy road from Mitla, paid the entrance fee and spent two hours hiking, swimming and taking in the breathtaking...

Playa Zipolite, Oaxaca, Mexico
Mexico is home to so many diverse wonders - canyons, deserts, rainforest, cities and, of course, beaches. One of the country's most fabulous beaches is tiny Zipolite on the Oaxacan coast. But it's not your typical head- pounding, hard-drinking,...

Todos Santos, Cabo San Lucas, B.C.S., Mexico
Seriously, I LOVE these guys, they're the best. And the cutest. Join them at their pop up studio in the huerta in Pescadero on weekdays at 9AM for–in their own words–seriously lighthearted yoga. Watch the passionfruit grow during Suyra Namaskar....
Save Place
Puerto Morelos, Quintana Roo, Mexico
I often hear the story of the lone traveler who came for a few weeks and stayed for a few years. I am not sure if it's the warm sand or the warm smiles. Maybe its the trendy night life combo with the little fishing village ambience or the jazz on...

Save Place
This hard-to-pronounce beach is the best that Puerto Escondido has to offer—for relaxing that is. Seasoned surfers hit the main stretch, but the Carrizalillo (try: caree-za-lee-yo) cove enchants with its less frantic waves and more secluded feel....
Save Place
Isla Mujeres, Q.R., Mexico
Discover the island on foot, rent golf carts, mopeds or bikes to explore the surrounding areas. Featured here are souvenir shops located along the "centro" of the town. Not surprisingly, Isla Mujeres, is not as idyllic as it was once thought of....

Luis Moya 31, Colonia Centro, Centro, 06000 Centro, CDMX, Mexico
Hidden behind rusty doors on Calle Luis Moya in the Centro Histórico is El Bósforo, a simple bar specializing in mezcal, tequila's slightly smokier cousin. Many of the bottles here are ultra-artisanal and once they're gone, they're...

Ave El Anclote 200, 63734 Punta de Mita, Nay., Mexico
We paddle boarded just off the Marieta Islands on a gorgeous day that provided for very warm water amidst gentle waves. This was my first time paddle boarding in the ocean in a less controlled environment. I totally recommend visiting the Marieta...

For millions of years, this mystical underworld stayed hidden deep underground in the Riveria Maya, Mexico. It’s where the underworld meets the heavens. This womb of the earth is a sacred place to the Mayans who believed it was the doorway...
