With plenty of warm and sunny destinations to choose from, you're sure to find paradise in Mexico.

The Riviera Maya is another favorite with its jungle trails, ancient Mayan cities and exotic cuisine. A little further north is Cancun, known as Mexico's showcase. Here you'll find a mecca of shopping, nightlife and outdoor activities, from parasailing over Laguna Nichupte to scuba diving on Cozumel Island to lounging on all-inclusive white sand beaches.
Choose to explore the western side of Mexico and head to Puerto Vallarta, the jewel of the Mexican Riviera. Puerto Vallarta is a sun-drenched, colonial seaside town with access to the sought-after Bay of Banderas, upscale shops and exotic cuisine. Cabo San Lucas is another popular spot.
