Christmas in Zihuatanejo: Mexico Vacation Villa for the Whole Family!

August 4th, 2011

Spending Christmas in Mexico is one of those things many people dream about — and with good reason. The weather along Mexico’s western coast is ideal during the month of December, with a warm glow in the mid-80s and just enough humidity to make the atmosphere seem tropical, but not stifling. Since most travelers are on their way from up north, where cold weather and even snow prevail, this represents a welcome change in climate.

Why Travel During the Christmas Season?

If taking a vacation during the most traditional time of the year seems odd to you, you aren’t alone. One of the most often-cited reasons for hesitating to book a trip during the Christmas season is what a departure it represents from the more common evergreen tree, cookies baking in the oven, and Santa singing in the background most people associate with the season. Here at Casa de la Sirena, we understand these hesitations — after all, you might have decades of family holidays at your back, and it can be hard to imagine anything else!

However, we believe in re-inventing the holidays your way. Mexico beach vacations are a great way to set the tone for future holidays in your family. Maybe you’ve just retired, and you want a break from tradition as you ease into your golden years. Perhaps you’re a newlywed, and you and your spouse want to get away for your first holiday season together. For many families, this is also a great opportunity to get everyone together. Instead of gathering at Grandma’s house this year, you can all step onto the shores near Zihuatanejo, where sun, sand, and relaxation await. Trust us, everyone will be sure and visit when Mexico is the setting for this year’s festivities.

Family Holidays in Mexico

In fact, Christmas Mexico vacation villas are most popular for families, and you’ll often find the same people returning year after year to enjoy the holiday spirit the Mexican way. That’s because you’ll find a unique mixture of tropical bliss and some of the more recognizable Christmas traditions. As a predominantly Catholic country, Mexico takes the Christmas season very seriously. You’ll find the shops and local sites draped in decorations, plenty of shoppers taking care of last-minute purchases, and religious ceremonies like midnight Mass or Christmas morning church service if you’d like to take a more reverent approach.

All of this is added on top of the more common beach activities found in the Zihuatanejo-Ixtapa region. Taking a few days to relax on the beach, enjoy the water activities, or even branch out and try a sunset horseback ride along the water’s edge are all great ways to spend some time with those you love.

Mexican beach resorts like Casa de la Sirena are fully equipped to handle all your holiday needs, which makes the experience that much better. Because we cater to families just like yours, we know what it takes to make a vacation getaway into a complete holiday experience. And our first piece of advice starts right now: book your Mexico Christmas vacation today. The rooms tend to fill up fast for the winter season months, and we want you to have plenty of time to prepare for the holiday season of a lifetime!
