If you’re planning to spend the Holidays in sunny Mexico this season, you’ll trade any chance of snow for a healthy dose of “the real meaning of Christmas.” This part of the world has barely been touched by the commercialism that defines Christmas in the United States. Instead, Christmas in Mexico begins by observing the religious side of the holiday on December 16th and doesn’t finish until February 2nd. Here are some of the most famous Mexican Christmas traditions you may experience if you visit during this time of the year:

Rosewood Hotels & Resorts recently announced plans to open their fifth luxury resort in Mexico.

Los Cabos is a region that refers to the cities of Cabo San Lucas, San Jose del Cabo, and ‘the corridor’ between that connects the two. It is a stunning Mexico beach destination at the tip of the Baja Peninsula, with coastlines spanning both the Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Cortez. With a magnificant deep blue sea contrasted by desert mountains and cactuses, Los Cabos is a popular, exotic escape. While the region does indeed boast water activities like SUP’ing, surfing, snorkeling, and scuba, many travelers may be surprised to learn that many Los Cabos beaches are not suitable for swimming or wading due to strong undertows and unpredictable tides. Below is a list of swimmable beaches in Los Cabos and which of our favorite Cabo hotels can be found there.

While Mexico’s beautiful beaches and resort destinations usually grab the spotlight and the majority of visitors, much of Mexico’s charms lie in the small pueblos and villages nestled in foothills, hidden in the mountains, or off-the-beaten path somewhere along the coasts. For travelers ready to explore beyond the popular beach areas and/or maybe add a few days of exploration to their sun and sand vacation, Mexico offers many options not too far from places like Cancun, Los Cabos, Puerto Vallarta, and Punta Mita. Below is a list of special places, called “Magic Towns” that can be easily connected with your beach getaway!

What is a Magic Town? Pueblos Mágicos (Magical Towns or Magical Villages) are a selection of Mexican villages whose cultural, historical, gastronomical, or natural treasures have been deemed exceptionally special and meaningful to Mexico’s heritage. While each town stands outs for their unique characteristics, travelers will find themselves transported to simpler times, far from the hustle and bustle of developed tourist cities. The Magical Towns in Mexico Program totals 111 destinations in all 31 states of Mexico (2016) and holds the responsibility for preserving Mexican culture and legacy.
