KM-269.5, Puerto Cancun, Carretera Chetumal, 77750 Puerto Aventuras, Q.R., Mexico
How do you photograph the sweet strains of piano and guitar that float around you or the sense of calm that envelopes you when you gaze across the still water of the pool and out to the sea? How do you put into words the...
Quintana Roo 109, Tulum, Q.R., Mexico
We decided to visit the Gran Cenote outside of Tulum and were expecting to swim with turtles and fish. While there were a few pet turtles and goldfish, the only real wildlife were bats that hang up in the cave openings. The Gran Cenote is more...

Up the hill from town stands Casa Dos Chicos a four-bedroom residence of two structures connected by a rooftop bridge. Upstairs, under a thatched roof, the outdoor kitchen, living room, and soaking pool offer endless panoramas. From $570. ...
Calle del Mercado 133, Xaltocan, 16090 Ciudad de México, CDMX, Mexico
The system of canals and chinampas (cultivated artificial islands fashioned from the area’s swampy soils) that has survived in the far-south neighborhood known as Xochilmilco once stretched all the way to the Centro. To this day, the...
Historic center of Mexico City, Centro, 06000 Mexico City, CDMX, Mexico
Its massive size, centrality to daily life in the capital, and easy accessibility (a Metro station opens up right onto the plaza) makes the Zócalo an ideal place for large-scale temporary exhibits. The government hosts occasional exhibits...
S/N, Balderas, Centro, 06040 Ciudad de México, CDMX, Mexico
On any given Sunday, a multitude of Mexico City parks find themselves playing host to groups of dance aficionados, who gather together to practice their steps in a jovial, non-judgmental atmosphere. But perhaps no park has a better Sunday scene...
Sayulita, Nayarit, Mexico
Guadalajara visitors craving an escape from the city should know that the ocean breeze isn’t far away. The bohemian beach town of Sayulita is about a four-hour drive, and even closer by plane. Popular in the 1960s among American and Canadian...
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...
Marietas Islands, Mexico
We took a boat to the Marieta Islands off the coast of Riviera Nayarit and Puerto Vallarta, with a great tour company by the name of Punta Mita Expeditions. Terrific snorkeling and paddle boarding with really warm water. We saw all sorts of...
Paseo Díaz Ordaz 858, Centro, 48300 Puerto Vallarta, Jal., Mexico
For a little taste of Cuba head to La Bodeguita del Medio, grab a mojito (I would advise asking them to put more rum in it), and bust out your salsa moves. The bar, covered in wall signatures just like Habana Vieja’s original version, has a second...
Calle Francisco I. Madero 343, Emiliano Zapata, 48380 Puerto Vallarta, Jal., Mexico
On the corner of Madero and Constitucion in Old Vallarta sits a street cart called El Moreno. They’re known for their birria, stewed goat that sits warming in a clay pot on the grill. Tacos are cheap (starting at $1) and come in small and large...
Pilitas, Amapas, 48399 Puerto Vallarta, Jal., Mexico
If it seems like Jorge's Hideaway Shrimp Shack is a small, six-table joint that feels as if it was set up in someone's home, that's because it pretty much was. The family-run business keeps things small and manageable so it can continue to turn...

Quilla s/n, Local 28-29, Marina Vallarta, 48335 Puerto Vallarta, Jal., Mexico
Ok, so it's not right on the seashore, but Mariscos 8 Tostadas is about a block away from the marina, and its seafood couldn't be fresher. House specialties include shrimp, ceviche, and marlin tostadas, as well as tuna sashimi.
