We take a closer look at the safest places in Mexico, to ensure you a relaxed visit on your next trip.
For the past few years, the country of Mexico has been infamous for being a party place with a fairly high crime rate. But despite the bad rap that it has been receiving, Mexico still serves as the home to some of the world’s best vacation spots and tourist destinations.
Below are some of the safest places in Mexico that deserve a spot in your travel bucket list:
When you visit Cabo, you will be welcomed to a gorgeous destination consisting of the towns of San Jose del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas with an impressive corridor of 20 miles of the magnificent Pacific beachfront. This beach paradise is a favorite spot of many A-list Hollywood stars and world leaders.
Right in the heart of all the splendor is one of Mexico’s safest resorts, Cabo San Lucas. With all its stunning fully-service villas and gated resorts, it is the best place to be for travelers who crave high-end and luxurious service in a serene and safe setting.
Cancun sits on Mexico’s Caribbean coast and serves as the gateway to the scenic Riviera Maya. This is the most visited place in the country every year where you can find several miles of 5-star luxury accommodations that overlook one of the most panoramic beaches in the whole of North America.
The historical party reputation of Cancun has now become much tamer. Its big club scene has been contained to several specific areas, giving family vacationers and honeymooners enjoy their holidays without the noise of the crowds.
3. Mexico City
The city of Mexico may be one of Northern America’s most densely populated cities. However, its central area is dotted with an extensive selection of old Colonia buildings that date as far back as the 1600s to 1900s and are best admired on foot.
As long as you stay close to all the touristy spots, you can expect to be safe that is comparable to the experience of being in the main thoroughfares of the large cities in the United States. Outdoor dining and incredible food all combine to create the city’s lively culture after dark.
4. Punta Mita And Puerto Vallarta
The unique Puerto Vallarta is located further south along the Pacific coastline. It is an amazing resort town laced with hotels and villas with dramatic hills on the backdrop, which makes it a less showy holiday destination.
The equally incredible town of Punta Mita just north of Puerto Vallarta also serves as the home to several wonderful self-contained properties that perfectly capture the scenic beauty of this gem in the Pacific.
5. Playa del Carmen
Playa del Carmen is no doubt one of the safest places in Mexico. Affectionately called Playa, the Mexican fishing village sits in the State of Quintana Roo that overlooks the Caribbean. This is why it is not a surprise that it has become one of the most desirable Mexican holiday destinations for savvy travelers.
Another notable thing about Playa is its proximity not just to the Caribbean’s gorgeous beaches but also to many centuries of interesting history at the UNESCO-protected and world-renowned site of Chichen Itza.
