One of the most popular tourist destinations for Royal Holiday members and the wider public alike, Mexico offers everything from vibrant urban landscapes to pristine beaches. Known worldwide for its affordable luxuries and unique cultural appeal, Mexico welcomes millions of vacationers every year who seek out ancient ruins or modern amenities. Royal Holiday provides members with the chance to experience Mexico’s beauty and culture without sacrificing any of the comforts that a savvy traveler expects.
Many Royal Holiday club members have sought out their ideal vacation experience on Mexico’s Pacific Coast, which includes luxury and all-inclusive resorts in Ixtapa, San Jose del Cabo, Acapulco, and Puerto Vallarta. Also known as the Mexican Riviera, the Pacific Coast is lined by tiny fishing villages and major tourist attractions alike, and any of the club’s various resort partners can provide an easy springboard for exploring the region. In Manzanillo, enjoy world-class golfing before taking a tour of a volcano. In Huatulco on the Oaxaca Coast, explore the jungle or discover a quiet beach. Wherever you go on the Mexican Pacific Coast, you can expect to find beauty both wild and cultivated, all within easy reach.
The heart of Mexico, while without the access to the beach found on the country’s coasts, has many exciting destinations for club members. Mexico City, the capital and one of the world’s greatest cities, possesses everything from charming gondola rides in Xochimilco to peaceful services at the Basilica of Guadalupe, while archeological and natural wonders abound in the nearby countryside. These include Michoacán’s Monarch Butterfly Sanctuary, the San Marcos Fair, Aguascalientes’ running of the bulls, the Tepozteco Mountain and the Lagoons of Zempoala, and many other exciting sites and experiences. These exciting tourist destinations can easily be reached from Royal Holiday’s various resorts in the region, which range from relaxing spas in Cuernavaca to a restored 16th century hacienda in Queretaro.
Compared to the Mexican Riviera, the so-called Mayan Riviera, or the Mexican Caribbean, offers island fun with mainland conveniences. From the base of operations in one of the Royal Holiday resorts in Cozumel or Cancún, members can explore the Yucatán Peninsula, if they can be tempted to leave the all-inclusive comfort of their destination. Off the coast is the world’s second longest barrier reef system, and the crystal clear Caribbean waters make snorkeling and diving a treat. Others will find pleasure in the region’s excellent fine dining options or the chance to swim with dolphins. Meanwhile, archeological sites like Chichen Itza, Xcaret, and Tulum enable tourists to learn more about Mexico’s fascinating past.
While Mexico is the world’s largest Spanish-speaking country, English is commonly spoken in many of the tourist centers, and major credit cards, products, and conventions remain the same. Mexico, with more than 2,000 years of history, art, and culture, remains one of the most exciting tourist destinations in the world.
