Haven’t decided on where your next getaway is.  Close your eyes and picture this. White sandy beaches. Crystal-clear water.  World class attention. The Mayans. The Aztecs. Tequila. Burritos.Tacos. I see that grin on your face.  Mexico. The choice is easy.  There so much to do in the land of Moctezuma that one trip surely won’t be enough to enjoy it all.  Royal Holiday has six amazing destinations that you should definitely go to over your lifetime.


It’s by far what pops into most people’s minds when they think of Mexico.  This is largely because of government efforts, which began about 50 years ago, to have one of the best destinations for any type of tourist from any part of the globe. Seasoned tourists.  Honeymooners. Spring breakers. Nature lovers. Families.  Seniors.  There is something in Cancun for everyone.

Cancun is renowned for its beaches. Good luck finding a more spectacular color combination of sand and water in the world. Some of the most popular places to visit and activities include:

  • Holbox Island:  One of the world biodiversity treasures and a must visit on any nature enthusiasts bucket list.  Very few places in the world offer the chance at observing such a wide number of species.
  • Diving and snorkeling:  Cancun has over 20 dive spots that will make for a once in a lifetime opportunity to observe life under the sea.
  • Isla Mujeres:  An island getaway in one of the most paradisiacal places in the world.  Sometimes the mainland can get a little crowded. Isla Mujeres is the best place to enjoy some simple living.

Where to stay:  Cancun offers some of the greatest hotels in the world.  And Royal Holiday is at the top of the list.  There are three spectacular hotels operated by Park Royal Hotels and Resorts where visitors can enjoy Cancun in all its luxurious glory.


Scuba diving paradise.  That is how many people would describe the Island of Cozumel.  While it’s not as populated as Cancun or other recognized tourist attractions it is still a very popular stop, especially for divers and cruise ships.  Honeymooners will enjoy some of the most amazing and romantic spots. Hospitality.  That’s the code of conduct in Cozumel.  The locals are there to make sure your experience is as hassle free as possible.

Ixtapa is unlike the previous destinations in that its coastline is covered in hills, giving it a unique landscape.  Another advantage?  The sunsets.  The sun rises in the east but when it sets in the west you will be amazed by all the amazing colors.  Ixtapa is mainly inhabited by tourist, it was developed similar to Cancun. Tourism is the main economic activity and tourist will enjoy the marvelous beaches and friendliness.

Where to stay: Park Royal Ixtapa offers visitors exclusivity and comfort.  It’s located near quaint shops and crafts markets to make it easy to take a piece of Mexican culture home with you.


A preferred destination by party seekers and spring breakers, Acapulco has so much more to offer.  It’s arguably the world’s most attractive and famous cliff diving spot.  The divers here are world famous and are constantly putting on shows.  Fishing enthusiast should definitely come on down to Acapulco.  Just cast and let the fish come to you.

9 gorgeous bays make up this spectacular resort location.  Its history is possibly one of the most exciting you will ever find.  Pirate lore is plenty in Huatulco.  And pirates are usually found in places with valuable treasures.  Huatulco’s many archaeological sites are a testament to this.  Visitors will find a relaxing and stress free environment, it’s the perfect Pacific getaway for those who don’t want the fast life of Acapulco.

Where to stay: Park Royal Huatulco is sandwiched between the Pacific and an amazing jungle full of wildlife.  You can’t get a more romantic scenery if you asked for it.

Los Cabos

While Los Cabos is not the best place for swimming (the water gets pretty rough), it’s a great place for many other activities.  You can go whale watching, golfing, fishing, snorkeling, or climb the mountains and get in some hang-gliding.  It’s the jewel of the Baja California Peninsula.  Los Cabos mixture of desert, sea, mountains, and beaches give way to some of the most astonishing landscapes and horizons your eyes will ever see.

Where to stay: Park Royal Los Cabos is ideal for those wanting to relax for longer periods of time and who want to hit the golf course or go whale watching.
