Top 10 most beautiful beaches in Mexico

 Mexico has almost 10,000 kilometers of coastline, and therefore, infinity of beautiful beaches. Some are classified among the most beautiful in the world. And it is that Mexicans are terribly darlings in question of beaches. In el Caribe, the color intensity turquoise, the reef and Mayan culture; in the Gulf, the coasts of Tampico and green of Veracruz, and intensity of Tabasco and Yucatan. In the Costa Oeste, from Chiapas to Baja California, incredible sunsets, waves for surfing and the passage of gray whales and dolphins. For all this make a list with the best beaches is almost painful and also very subjective. And sure I’ve forgotten from the beach more recondite, the prettiest.

For those who prefer the crowds, Mexico has several of the most visited beaches in the world. Manzanillo, in Colima that receives half a million visitors each year, Mazatlan, Sinaloa, and Puerto Vallarta in Jalisco, receive more than a million and a half visitors, and Cancun and Cozumel in Quintana Roo, and Acapulco in Guerrero, which are visited for more than 2 million people every year.

Personally, I prefer the quieter beaches, or at least those that are more beautiful in terms of nature. Here are some of my favorites.

Tulum, Quintana RooTulum-Beach,-Mexico

One of the stars of the Caribbean is Tulum. The white sand and turquoise waters would not be as wonderful without Maya el templo looming on the horizon. Bathe and look to the temple, or visit the Mayan ruins and see the immensity of the sea bottom is priceless. You can’t leave without taking a bathhouse, sauna famous Hispanic, with subsequent dip in a cenote and a feast of traditional food.

Mazunte, Oaxacamazunte

Mazunte, on the Pacific coast, is one of the most beautiful beaches on the beautiful beaches of Oaxaca. It owes its name to a blue crab that once was very numerous in the area. If you go, do not miss Punta Cometa, the northern most tip of Mexico, where you can see the sunrise and sunset in the water.

Boca del Cielo, Chiapasbocacielo

One of the least known beaches is Boca Del Cielo, also is one of the most pristine. A strip of land between the estuary and the sea of the Pacific Ocean, to rest quietly, rocking in a hammock sipping coconut water and freshly caught a lobster lunch. Do not forget to visit the turtle camp.

Los Cabos is one of the most beautiful and exclusive destinations of Mexico, located on the southern tip of the Baja California peninsula.

Aquarium for Rocky Point

Articulo 7

Rocky needs a tourist attraction as it is an Aquarius; we are privileged to have the Gulf of California before us which Jacques Cousteau named as the world’s aquarium, as it has a variety of marine species which areonly this area. An aquarium in our city would become a tourist attraction and most of all a great help to promote the care of marine species and help education. An aquarium would become an icon that distinguish us as a port, the aquarium is currently in school Cet Mar, but very small, need more space, more species to show and especially cabinets where they can appreciate all species and if possible show some water.
