It’s no shock that one of Royal Holiday’s top travel locations is Mexico. With properties spanning from Central Mexico to the Pacific Coast, Royal Holiday can make certain that your trip will take full advantage of all the beautiful country has to offer in terms of beaches, historical monuments, hikes, and resorts. Here are just a few of the highlights of a Royal Holiday Mexican vacation:
Experience Romance in Acapulco
Both the Las Brisas Acapulco and Park Royal Acapulco showcase the best that Acapulco has to offer to Royal Holiday travelers. The beautiful seaport town is full of old buildings, breathtaking bays, and delicious local cuisine like Chile Relleno and Pozole. A diving trip to seek out the famous sunken Virgin of Guadalupe statue might expose to you all types of underwater life, as well a journey to some of Acapulco’s breathtaking mangroves and lagoons.
Get to Know Oaxaca
The Park Royal Huatulco is perfectly placed at the southern point of Oaxaca at Huatulco, a town made up of nine bays. Fishing and diving are always in order, while trips to Huatulco National Park will provide the sea-weary with an opportunity to hike and enjoy the sights. If you’re someone who never tires of the ocean, you can go the extra mile by visiting the Mexican Turtle Center in Mazunte, where wild turtles can be viewed in their natural habitat. Ornate churches line the streets, as well as historic museums (including the Oaxaca textile museum) and a diverse selection of shops and dining opportunities. Known as the “land of the seven moles”, Oaxaca is one of the best Mexican locations for spending time away from beach if you need a break from diving and paddle-boarding. Try the local tequila, and if you’re feeling adventurous, snack on chapulines, a local delicacy consisting of roasted grasshopper.
Deep Dive in Puerto Vallarta
The beaches of Puerto Vallarta are legendary for their crystal blue waters and shimmering sands. Royal Holiday’s Park Royal Puerto Vallarta property is found south of Bahía de Banderas with a lush view of the Pacific Coast. At Park Royal Puerto Vallarta, touring the raincoast of the Sierra Madre on horseback doesn’t have to be a far-off dream—it’s something you can do quite literally in your own backyard. Hike, ride, or simply go “canopying” among the trees in one of the lushest and most vibrant rainforests of the world, all while making it back in time to take advantage of Puerto Vallarta’s exciting nightlife scene.
Live It Up in Cancun
Park Royal Cancún is a more than just a place to stay—it’s an actual Cancun landmark in its own right. Everyone knows Cancun as a party spot, one of the most adored destinations for spring breakers and beachgoers alike. As a Royal Holiday guest, you can experience a different side of Cancun. Beneath the hard-partying exterior of the beautiful peninsula is a thriving cultural hotspot. You can hit up the Casa de Cultura Art Center or the Teatro De Cancun to enjoy art exhibitions and live shows nightly. If you want something more laid-back, visit the Museo Mexicano, the first museum built in Cancun’s Playa Del Carmen. And if you’re heading to Cancun in November, you can catch the legendary Riviera Maya Jazz Festival, featuring a gathering of live jazz artists from around the world.
Enjoy the Island Breezes of Cozumel
Grand Park Royal Cozumel is one of Royal Holiday’s most visually stunning properties. Located off the coast of the island of Cozumel, the Royal takes full advantage of the tropical beauty of the coast. Exclusive access to the beach and an open-air theater are only a small part of the benefits to staying at this truly deluxe Royal Holiday location. Stroll along the famous boardwalk, visit museums, or simply gaze at the beauty of the sea while sipping cocktails. Bars and nightlife are abundant in Cozumel, and after a day of swimming with dolphins and diving into coral reefs, you might just find you have the energy for one more drink—or perhaps even a full-on pub crawl. And if you’re too tired to venture out at night, Royal Holiday’s Cozumel location will introduce you to the wonder of Balinese nap pods, a truly luxurious way to catch up on rest without having to sacrifice the beauty of the outdoors.
Indulge in the Mayan Riviera
The Riviera Maya on Mexico’s Caribbean coastline is one of the most beautiful spots along the Yucatan peninsula, offering shipwrecks, sanctuaries, snorkeling, and exotic wildlife at every turn. Royal Holiday’s Grand Riviera Princess property is poised at the heart of the Riviera Maya, offering a direct route to some of the location’s most beautiful beaches and hikes. Visit the incredible Puerto Morelos reef and the Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve, a 1.3 billion acre area devoted to research and the rehabilitation of natural ecosystems and environments. For those with a sense of pure wonder and desire for complete immersion in the beauty of nature, the Riviera Maya offers a chance to bask in the glory of the diverse Caribbean ecosystem.
Get Lost in San Jose del Cabo
The Park Royal Los Cabos is a time-honored favorite of returning Royal Holiday guests for its devoted service members, prime location, and exquisite on-site pampering options. Located on the tip of the Baja California peninsula, San Jose del Cabo is full of historic churches and beautiful beaches offering tourists plenty of chances to get lost in the intoxicating beauty of the atmosphere.
