Top Mexico Beaches – Puerto Vallarta and Ensenada
With shores on two oceans, Mexico’s beaches are a lovers’ paradise. Here’s a primer on three of the beach areas, Puerto Vallarta and Ensenada
Considered a poor man’s Acapulco, Puerto Vallarta lies in the middle of the Bahia de Banderas, a vast bay. The beach is long and friendly, while the two lie at the foot of the Sierra Madre Mountains.
Tourism has developed in the last ten years with the growth of condominiums, hotels, restaurants, and tourist attractions.
Mexico beaches, you really can’t go wrong in Puerto Vallarta. The northern beaches are the most popular, which means more people.
I’ve headed to the south to find a little more breathing room. For gay travelers, Puerto Vallarta is considered the most accommodating beach location in an otherwise conservative Mexico.
Located a few hours south of the border with San Diego, Ensenada is a popular weekend trip. Sitting on the bay of Todos Santos, Ensenada is famous for its vibrant nightlife, lovely beaches, and location where much of the movie Titanic was shot.
Historically, Ensenada used to be a secret location known to San Diegans. Then the Mexican government built a smooth highway from Tijuana through Ensenada.
So much for the secret!
Today, Ensenada is an excellent place to go if you want to experience Mexico but want to avoid the packed, edgy Tijuana scene.
In Ensenada, you can ride horses on the beach, surf, and visit world-famous bars. The most famous, of course, is Hussongs. Hussongs is the place where you can sample and sing with Mariachi bands. The two have nothing to do with each other. Honest.
Everyone has a favorite beach spot in Mexico. Ensenada and Puerto Vallarta arent bad places to sample.
Puerto Vallarta depende del turismo y es el centro economico de la region.
