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.

In recent weeks, Oaxaca has been featured repeatedly and sensationally in the news over an isolated event that occurred on June 19th, 2016. While the country is indeed facing social and political challenges along with the rest of the world, we are saddened by the media’s exaggeration and exploitation of events in Oaxaca. We here at Journey Mexico are constantly monitoring the situation for safety and any potential impact on travel in the area, and we are happy and confident to report that all our contacts in Oaxaca speak positively and that Oaxaca City and the main tourist areas remain unaffected.
