Recent Northern Mexico reviews

  • Wow! Just Wow!

    "My husband and I love visiting Rocky Point and staying at this beautiful condo made it even better. Everything was perfect from the incredible view of the ocean from the patio to the well-appointed bedrooms (both with comfy king beds and private bathrooms) and the well-stocked kitchen. It was easy to tell that the owner takes great pride in sharing this amazing condo with others. The staff at Los Palomas is friendly, helpful, and very professional. I would recommend staying at this condo, but be aware that once you stay here nothing else will measure up."

  • Great Place

    "This apartment really is fantastic, very large and roomy with all the comforts of home. The balcony and views are amazing, we could have spent the whole trip sitting out there. My group had a blast in town, but if you wanted to avoid it these resorts are set apart from everything else, gated with a guard, and feel very safe and secluded. It was warm enough to swim in the beach in December and we just about had the entire resort to ourselves. Definitely going back."

  • Excellent Condo!

    "We have been coming to Puerto Penasco for over 20 years and have stayed at various locations all over town. This, by far, has been our very best stay. The condo was better than we expected and was very well equipped with everything we needed. The daily maid service was outstanding and everyone at Las Palomas was so friendly and helpful. The access to the pool and beach was outstanding and we could not have asked for anything more convenient. We will definitely stay here again!"

Some have a vibrant holiday atmosphere and others are quieter and more secluded. People who explore the mainland region of northern Mexico are more adventurous at heart. The area is remote and has stunning natural scenery. There are many different kinds of adventure activities available for those who want to go exploring. It is a great family destination.

Favorite Activities at Northern Mexico Beach Rentals

Mexico's coastline is a favorite destination for surfers. There are many bays where the swell provides ideal surfing conditions. There are some places where novices can learn but the vast majority of surf spots are more suited to those who have already mastered the art of surfing. There are areas where there is a big shore break and if you are not familiar with the conditions, you can find yourself getting unceremoniously dumped. Sailing, kayaking and Jet Skiing are other popular activities available at the seaside resorts. Particularly along the Baja Peninsula, there are several golf resorts and golf courses where golfing enthusiasts can enjoy 18 holes. On mainland Northern Mexico, you can find canyons, towering peaks and vast desert landscapes. Here you can enjoy a variety of adventure activities including hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding and climbing. The Copper Canyon is a world-famous landmark that has numerous trails traversing the area. The northern part of Mexico is also where you will be able to enjoy a more authentic side of Mexico's culture.

Getting to Northern Mexico Condos

The Northern Mexico region encompasses a vast area from the port city of Tampico on the Gulf of Mexico to the city of Tijuana which is found on the border with the U.S. For most places on the Baja California Peninsula, the easiest way to get to your vacation destination is to drive. Most visitors to the region are from Southern California and Arizona. Many of the vacation resort areas are within a day's drive of the border post. There are several smaller airports and if you want to fly in, you will need to route via San Diego or Mexico City. If you are traveling to the mountainous northern region, the nearest international airport can be found in Monterrey. There are frequent flight connections with most of the southern states as well as other major cities in Central America. Once in Northern Mexico, the most convenient way to get around is by hiring a car. Be sure to rent a vehicle that has air conditioning to ensure that your explorations are more enjoyable.

Best Time of Year to Visit Mexico Vacation Rentals

Mexico's climate is hot all year long. The seasons almost seem to glide into one another with the major difference being the level of humidity, the amount of rainfall, and whether it is just hot or very hot. Northern Mexico in particular is a popular vacation destination for those who want to escape from the winter chills further north. Typically, the most popular travel season is between December and April when the temperatures are somewhat milder and the humidity is less intense. However, due to school vacation periods many families travel during the warmer summer months of June, July and August. During this time, you can expect the occasional afternoon thundershowers and high levels of humidity. You also need to be diligent about protecting yourself from the harsh sunlight. Wear a sunhat and apply loads of sunscreen on a regular basis.
