Choosing the best resorts in Mexico may start with safety. Traveling to Mexico can be safe and enjoyable, but there are some troubling things that happen when you are not within the bounds of the US borders. What you want to do is to find resorts that have a high safety rating both within the resort, in surrounding areas, and even getting too and from that resort itself. This is especially important if you have children going with you or if they are waiting at home for your safe return.

Next, choosing the best resorts in Mexico comes down to what you want to do. Do you want to spend time lying on a beach or surfing? If so, you obviously want something along the shore. Many great resorts in Mexico have this, but there are some … Read the rest
