A visit to Mexico is a popular choice for many reasons. It is a country of great ruins, culture, food, and especially beaches. Mexico has over 10,000km of coastline surrounded by four waters. Most of the coast faces the Pacific Ocean and it stretches along the entire west side. These desert-like, rocky, sandy beaches, which alternate further south with lush green, tropical beaches are a delight. To the east, the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea await with true postcard beaches. They range from small bays with sandy beaches to well developed beaches with infrastructure, to untouched natural beaches.
