Two Coasts of Mexico


The Two Coasts of Mexico

By Robert Holman



Tourism is big business in Mexico. The semi tropical climate and great beaches are certainly the primary reasons. Proximity to the United States and an enlightened governmental attitude that has been highly intentional in promoting tourism for a couple of generations are also primary factors.

The East coast of Mexico is the Caribbean coast boasting hundreds of hotels and resorts in Cancun, Cozumel, Isla Mujeres, and spread along the so called Mayan Riviera. There is an international airport serving Cozumel but all other destinations feed through the major airport near Cancun. This is a very busy airport with dozens of scheduled air arrivals from North American cities daily. There are also numerous charter flights arriving daily pouring thousands of tourists to spread out to one of the nearby resort destinations.

The West coast of Mexico is the Pacific coast, and the resort destinations are more spread out and isolated from each other. Each destination, such as Puerto Vallarta and Mazatlan, are served by its own international airport. Some of these destinations are newer and planned as part of the proactive governmental approach to tourism, but many are older and have been tourist hotspots dating to the 1950s such as Acapulco. Deep sea fishing is especially good for the Pacific coast resort areas.
