Imagine yourself sitting on the beach with warm, squishy sand between your toes and a tropical drink in your hand.

Picture you and your family being catered to in a wonderful five star resort with beautiful, blue ocean views and palm trees swaying in the soft pacific breeze.

If you can imagine it.. then you're ready. Christmas family vacations in Mexico are just what you need. Once you step off that plane, you'll feel your Christmas time stress just melt away.

Christmas Vacations in Puerto Vallarta and Guadalajara



Have you thought of doing a 2 in 1 trip? By this I mean.. heading to the sunny beach of Puerto Vallarta and taking a little side trip to the metropolis of Guadalajara as well.

These two vacation spots complement each other so perfectly. Let me explain..

First, you have Guadalajara with all its culture, art exhibits, ballet folklorico and folk art.

And then you have Puerto Vallarta with the beach, five star resorts, cobblestoned streets and beautiful evening sunsets.

So are you convinced yet?

When you think of visiting the Pacific coast of Mexico.. (and many people do because of the weather and warm sandy beaches)..

You may automatically think of just heading to one of the beaches like Puerto Vallarta or Acapulco and spending all your time there exclusively.

I did at first as well.. however.. one of the best benefits of visiting a place like Guadalajara is that the city is only about 3-4 hours by car to Puerto Vallarta or vice versa.

When you visit either place.. you get the best of both worlds.

If you don't fancy driving in Mexico.. then you can always take a first class bus trip to the beach. (You'll be really pleased to know that the buses in Mexico are very different from the ordinary Greyhound buses that you see in the U.S.) More on this later..

Bear in mind that if you do decide to take the bus, your trip will be longer.. since there are more stops in little villages along the way.

I'm convinced the trip would be cut in half if those darn mountains weren't in the way too.. nevertheless, the drive to and from the beach is oh soo breathtaking, and really worth the extra time it takes.
