  • Great spring break with the kids.

    "We really enjoyed staying in The Villas de Cortez, they are very clean and cute. Everyone is so nice and Pedro (the Villas manager) is a gem. We were very impressed with the Bay View restaurant at the hotel. They cooked up our Mahi with three different seasonings and it was truly delicious. Our two boys, ages 8 and 9, were never bored and had a great time at the resort's many pools and the beach in front of the hotel. We saw and heard the mobula rays quite a few times in front of the hotel which was a special treat. The location of the unit is nice with a fully functioning elevator available as needed. I would highly recommend this rental."

  • 2 weeks at #2305 La Estancia

    "We travelled with another couple for 2 weeks here are the highlights, resort is beautiful and well located to town 15 - 20 min walk or an $8 - $10 taxi fare. Condo has alot of space and deck is fantastic with a great BBQ. We liked the morning sun and afternoon shade as by end of day we usually had enough sun. The kitchen is nicely stocked with pots, pans, bowls dishes etc. The only small issues we had is that the dishwasher bottom rack doesn't sit well and its probably time for a new dishwasher as it didn't clean well with larger loads, other issue was the crisper in fridge needs to be fixed, replaced as it kept falling off the mounts. Water and icemaker were great and kept us to our needs. Al in all I would recommend this property and unit to anyone looking for a quiet, relaxing luxurious get away! we hope to be back next year!"

  • New Years Eve getaway

    "Pictures do not do justice for this property!! Amazing place to stay, will never stay at a resort again after staying here. Grocery store is a 5 minute walk, and only a 10 minute cab ride to all the action on the male con! The property manager is great, very informative. Greeted us upon arrival and explained everything needed to be explained upon arrival. Once checked in we found the hotel staff to be incredibly friendly and helpful with anything in need. The concierge took care of any questions or problems we had, along with making reservations to restaurants. Again pictures do not do justice. The Icon complexes are a home away from home. The condo has amazing views of the harbour ( where ships are docked), the city , and a small beach/ocean view. Me and my girlfriend would definitely recommend this to anyone looking to book. We were optimistic at first as there were no reviews. Typically we are not the couple to write reviews, but with the great hospitality of the manager and the hotel staff we felt it was well deserved. Every worker at the Icon speaks very good english. Thanks again Christina!! We will be back."

  • The Best Condo On the Beach

    "Without being redundant with the other reviews.........this was the best vacation we have had in a long time. The condo is exactly as advertised and more. The condo is actually equipped for a long term stay. Unfortunately ours was only a week. As advertised, they are directly above the beach. We are beach people so this was very important. The 2 restaurants (La Palapa & Si Senor) below the condo are both excellent for their food and drink. However the La Palapa pulls up their beach furniture around 4:30 so we spent most of our beach time at Si Senor's who provides excellent curb service and longer beach service. No extra charge for the beach furniture. We were there over a Mexican Holiday so it was very festive. We were also there during a very high tide because of a hurricane that had passed by several miles out to sea. No wind, just high surf to watch the locals on their surf boards from our balcony! Will we return, oh yes!"

Mexico Travel Tips

It’s no wonder why Americans vacation in Mexico more than any other country in the world. With its picturesque beaches, ancient civilizations and worries-by-the-wayside attitude, this warm wonderland makes an ideal getaway for families and spring breakers alike. Wedged between the Pacific Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico, there is no shortage of adventure or relaxation. Listen to the waves crash on the shore or explore the steps where Mayans used to gather thousands of years ago. Whichever it is, get used to carefree livin’.

Mexico City

As the capital of Mexico, Mexico City is bursting with one of the largest metropolitan centers in the world that’s located on the former grounds of the Aztecs. Take a trip back in time as you step foot in the Plaza de la Constitución Zocala, the ancient capital and ceremonial center of Tenochtitlan and the biggest public square in the western hemisphere. In the center of the square, the army ceremoniously raises and lowers the flag each day at 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. You won’t want to miss Templo Mayor, where archaeologists are still discovering artifacts about Aztec history and lifestyle. Mexico’s National Museum of Anthropology unveils everything from pre-Hispanic Mayan cultures to the Spanish conquest. Then dress sharp as you make for one of the countless five-star restaurants, or chat with the locals in artsy neighborhoods like Romo or Condesa. As a stunning stratification of ancient ruins beneath modern bustle, Mexico City is a must-visit.

Puerto Vallarta

With a kaleidoscope of activities along 40 miles of coastline, Puerto Vallarta has it all. It is tucked in the Sierra Madre Mountains, and its locals have be known to welcome visitors with open arms. Swimming with dolphins, boating across the bay and unwinding along El Malecon are all on the menu here. Thrill-seekers, take on the adventure of a lifetime at the Puerto Vallarta Outdoor Adventure Tour, where you can speed across canopies zip-lining, embark on a 4x4 off-road drive and even go rappelling down a waterfall! Once you’re beat and need a little rest, hang out in the oceanside central plaza to gaze at the beauty of the Church of Our Lady of Guadalupe, an emblem of the Puerto Vallarta that is famous across the world.

Cancun

Live it up amidst the hustle and bustle of the Cancun nightlife. Party-rockin’ bars and clubs bursting with music and dancing are everywhere. Pulse-pounding rhythms and an up-till-5 attitude make Cancun a haven for college spring breakers. However, it is also a great cultural destination for those who want to experience Chichen Itza, an awe-inspiring Mayan archaeological site which was a main hub of the ancient civilization. Avoid crowds by getting there early in the morning before the tour buses arrive. Along the coast, the beaches are pristine; Isla Mujeres and Playa Linda, among others, offer magnificent swimming with even better views.

San Miguel de Allende

San Miguel del Allende provides an authentic Mexican escape off the beaten path from overcrowded beaches and tourist lines. Situated on the steep hillside, the city exudes a feeling of warmth as the churches, orange rooftops and brightly colored buildings serve as an inspiration for the artists who live there. During the day, you can take your lover horseback riding or visit Bellas Artes for a look into the study of visual arts, dance and music since 1938. Bask in the beauty of El Charco del Ingenio, San Miguel’s botanical garden, that features 445 aces of ecological reserve that the Dalai Lama declared one of the five “zones of peace” in Mexico. It gives you an opportunity to slow life down again and enjoy it as it comes. When the sun sets, grab a delicious meal at Cafe Rama for a casual yet elegant atmosphere.

Cozumel

Located off the eastern coast along the Caribbean, Cozumel is a small island that boasts big fun. Wade in the turquoise waters of Palancar Beach that are beyond dreamy. It is known for water sports like snorkeling, sailing and kayaking. Expert divers tend to flock to North Beach. Or, embark on a pirate cruise for dinner and fun for the whole family. Discover Mayan remains at the San Gervasio Ruins, a shrine where Mayan women used to visit to worship their goddess of love and fertility Ixchel. Wear close-toed shoes, though, as you’ll be walking black sand beaches with lizards and iguanas. For nature buffs, head south to embrace Faro Celerain Eco Park, also known as Parque Punta Sur, which holds 2,500 acres of indigenous species, such as crocodiles and sea turtles.

Come see why Mexico’s idyllic beaches, historical sites and vibrant city life are a mecca for tourists year-round.
