These Mexican Cities Are Perfect For Budget Travel

Mexico is not an expensive place to travel. Each year, millions of Americans not only go to Mexico to seek out budget travel deals, but thousands also expatriate there to enjoy the slowed down lifestyle and more affordable living. In this article, we look at some unique Mexico budget travel packages in well-known cities like Acapulco, and smaller fishing spots like Puerto Escondido.

Acapulco Mexico

Acapulco – Acapulco is a popular budget travel location for tourists traveling on a budget. As a celebrity hotspot in the twentieth century, the Acapulco Bay has long served as a tourist epicenter in Mexico, with classic hotels like La Quebrada making the city a resort hotspot. Be sure to visit the Sierra Madre del Sur mountains which extend to the coastline and stay at the beautiful Hotel Ritz.

Mazatlan – Mazatlan is another popular budget destination for travelers looking to see the beauty of Mexico on a budget, with ancient structures built by natives and tens of thousands of year old petroglyphs, its no wonder why Mazatlan is one of the favorite tourist destinations in Mexico.

Many people have inhabited Mazatlan, including French, German, Chinese, Italian, Spanish and American settlers, which all have had an effect on the culture. Several events are hosted annually in Mazatlan, including the Carnival of Mazatlan, which is over 115 years old. Baseball is also very popular in Mazatlan, with Major League Baseball teams, like the San Diego Padres, playing whole series there.

Mexico City –  Mexico City offers some of the best hotel deals and vacation packages in Mexico, with Mexico home to some of the best restaurants in the world and a burgeoning to craft beer scene that is making it a truly world-class city.

Mexico City features the Chapultepec Forest, the biggest park in Mexico City and Teotihuacan lies a day trip’s distance away from Mexico City, and is one of UNESCO’s Heritage Sites, and home to some of the world’s biggest pyramids.

Puerto Escondido –  The perfect Mexican vacation spot for water enthusiasts, Puerto Escondido offers surfing, snorkeling, diving, swimming, sportsfishing and other fun water activities by day, and busy cafes, restaurants and bars with live music by night. Something that sets Puerto Escondido apart is that, despite attracting tourists, it remains to this day a fishing port and market town.

Zihuatanejo – Zihuatanejo (see-wah-tah-neh-ho) and Ixtapa, despite being sister cities, are very different.  Zihuatanejo is the real deal. Zihuatanejo, or Zihua, is another of Mexico’s Pacific beach paradises. But a small fishing village until the 1970s, it would soon become vacation destinations for the protagonists of Tim Robbins, Morgan Freeman in The Shawshank Redemption.

Cruise ships sometimes dock here for the luxury hotels and dining. Still, Zihua remains small, with cobblestone streets and tasty restaurants, fun bars, as well as boutique shops and art. You can buy frsh fish on the beach by Paseo del Pescador (Fishermen’s Passage) to sell their catch of the day.

 

Hoteles Ixtapa Zihuatanejo

Mexico budget travel packages (paquetes vacacionales economicos) abound, and a laidback Mexican vacation is waiting for you right around the corner.

As we’ve written here at MexResorts before, now is a great time to look forward to a Mexican getaway. Whether it is to the beach paradise of Zihua, or the big city living of Mexico City, plenty of Mexico budget travel packages await.

I’ve been using Hoteles Acapulco web page for long time. I’ve checked it a few times against other pages and here it always gave me the best deal without any hidden costs that pop out in the last moment. Frankly speaking I haven’t tried to book a car with Hoteles Acapulco, I didn’t need to, but I have booked two different hotels and once a hotel and flight package. The three times I used the web page I was very satisfied. It is easy to follow, I’m not an internet geek and I didn’t have any problems with the booking and the whole booking process was pretty fast. Once I wanted to stay at Acapulco Playa Suites that I had already known but instead I chose a promotion they offered at that time at Acapulco Copacabana Hotel and I paid almost the same. I have already recommended their services to my friends and they were also happy with their vacation.
