For luxury travel that exceeds expectations, it's hard to beat Mexico. Of all the countries profiled in this online luxury travel magazine, Mexico is the one with the most-developed tourism industry. Here the discerning traveler doesn't have to look far to find true luxury 5-star resorts competing with the world's best. The excellent golf courses are perfectly groomed and in dramatic locations. The adventure activities are organized and the service is often top-notch. While Mexico certainly has its share of problems, especially in the border areas, the infrastructure is good and the food and service are consistently of a high quality.
Many Americans, Europeans, and Canadians are familiar with Mexico, but too often they have only sampled dessert and have forgone the rest of the meal. Yes, Mexico has some stunning beaches around Cancun, Los Cabos, and Puerto Vallarta, but there are a thousand reasons to venture beyond those short-hop vacation wonderlands.
Travel in Mexico can take in a wide range of cultures, sites and activities. The Mayans, Toltecs, and Aztecs created major temples that still awe and inspire us today. Mexico City is one of the world's greatest cultural capitals. Whatever strikes your travel holiday fancy—apart from winter wonderlands—there is a good chance you'll find it traveling in Mexico.
