During your stay at luxurious villas in Mexico, you can easily spend most of your day lounging in these stylish accommodations, sipping a margarita and making a few trips to the market around the corner for some homemade tortillas. As with any vacation, however, being in a foreign country gives you the chance to explore, whether you rent a car and take a road trip to some Mayan ruins or simply head to a secluded beach in the middle of nowhere.
Here are four must-dos, no matter how many times you've been to Mexico:
1. Take a Stroll to Puerto Vallarta's Malecon
With numerous luxury rentals located right in Puerto Vallarta, you have every opportunity to take a sunset walk down the boardwalk along Banderas Bay. This one-mile-long promenade boasts romantic sculptures that seem to glisten when the sun dips below the horizon. With the arrival of twilight, the nearby Los Arcos amphitheater comes alive with folk dancers and live musicians.
2. Witness Cliff Divers in Acapulco
If you've ever been to a Cirque du Soleil performance, then you're in for an even more spectacular treat if you witness the death-defying feats of Acapulco's cliff divers. These young men have been doing this for most of their lives, and love to entertain visitors with their graceful and daring acrobatics. You can watch all the action from the comforts of your table at the La Perla restaurant, which has front-row seats to the evening shows.
3. Drive North to Baja California Sur
After taking just an hour's drive north from Los Cabos, you'll hit the illustrious Baja California Sur, which boasts some of the most spectacular beaches in the world. While you're there, you can either charter a boat to explore the stunning rock formations situated across the water or join a whale watching tour and watch as gray whales amble their way along the surface.
4. Say "Salud!" at Las Mercedes
Located due east of Puerto Vallarta, the Mexican state of Guanajuato is ripe with gourmet eateries, including Las Mercedes. Perched on a hill just outside of the city of San Miguel de Allende, this restaurant has a menu that impresses just about everyone who dines there. Be sure to order the mushroom soup, which is served with fresh avocado and tortilla, before saying "Salud!" with a glass of Mexican sangria.
