Wedding Planning along Mexico’s Western Coast

June 19th, 2012

When most people think of having a destination wedding in Mexico, they picture the bright turquoise waters of the Caribbean and the high-rise resorts that populate the eastern portion of the country. While there are attractive mexico beach weddings along these lines, we invite you to consider something a little more intimate, a little lower-key, and a little more in keeping with the family traditions that make Mexico such a unique and warm place to say your “I dos”.

When it comes to booking Mexican beach rentals for your vacation, there are an almost limitless number of possibilities about where you can go and what you can do. Resorts along the Caribbean coast offer excited crowds and lots of youthful, vibrant fun. The country’s interior is filled with cultural wonders and the kind of rich history that exists nowhere else on earth. And the west coast offers a more low-key approach to beach life, with eco-tourism and surfing taking the primary honors.


Family Friendly Activities for Your Mexico Beach Vacation

June 2nd, 2012

Mexico beachfront rentals aren’t just for couples and those looking for a quiet vacation full of romance and time napping in the sand. It’s becoming more and more common for families to seek out a tropical haven where they can not only enjoy the idyllic tropical backdrop, but where they can create memories with their kids that will last a lifetime.

A Typical Day in Paradise

Many people assume that a small, beachfront community won’t have enough action to keep kids happy. After all, there aren’t any water slides, roller coasters, or dolphin shows in this part of Mexico, and you won’t find a toy store or mall to entertain them if rain starts to fall.


Mexican Beach Vacations: Shopping and Shipping Information

April 26th, 2012

One of the many reasons why a Mexico beach vacation is such a great trip idea is to enjoy the shopping opportunities. Whether you’re interested in finding gorgeous, one-of-a-kind pieces for your home, or if the idea of taking advantage of low prices appeals to you, you can find everything from textiles and ceramics to personalized artwork for sale in Mexican shops.

Shopping in the Ixtapa-Zihautanejo Region

As is the case in any geographically diverse country, every region in Mexico offers its own unique take on handcrafted goods. Guerrero, the state in which Ixtapa, Zihuatanejo, and our own Troncones reside, is famed for its ceramic plates and dinner sets, wood sculptures, ceremonial masks, and hammocks-most of which are available through the large and open-air artisan markets.

People vacation to Mexico for a variety of reasons. Some want to enjoy the lively atmosphere and vibrant nightlife of the bigger cities, where the party never seems to stop.

Yoga is a deeply personal experience that can have a profound impact on the body, mind, and soul. That’s why the yoga environment is one of the most important considerations you should make when choosing a location for your next yoga retreat.
