Introducing Central Pacific Coast
Those gigantic aquamarine waves keep rolling in, just as they always have along Mexico’s central Pacific coast. It’s the primal rhythm backing any visit to this land of isolated beaches and giant sunsets. Sit yourself down in the sand for a week or an afternoon and, if you’re lucky, spy humpback whales breaching on the horizon, or a pod of dolphins surfacing from the waves. Beyond the beach, experience a natural high in mangrove-fringed lagoons, pristine bays, and ramshackle fishing villages, or mix it up with some good living in a cosmopolitan resort town.
Don’t stop there: head deeper inland toward the blue silhouette of the lofty Sierras Madre, where the tourism track becomes a rutted path that sometimes disappears completely. You can take months exploring the coast on the cheap, roaring along the coastal highway in 2nd-class buses, or hanging onto the back of a pickup packed with locals on your way to a fishing village where fishing nets are still strung by hand.
One of the world’s top tourist destinations, the coast is also a land of mega-resorts, cruise ships, camera-toting tourists and rowdy spring-breakers on weekend drinking binges. Join in, or ignore them completely. You can snorkel, surf, sail, ride horses, scuba dive, explore lagoons by boat, mountain bike along ocean cliffs and drink yourself silly. Spend a week in a fabulous beachfront guesthouse, where food and drink are prepared fresh daily, or enjoy considerable luxury in a world-class hotel, where you can soak up the sun and read a book before indulging in the best spa treatment or full-body massage of your life. The good life here means finding your own rhythm.
