3 Places in Mexico to Escape to This Winter

Winter weather is making its presence known all over the country, inspiring many travelers to start making their plans for a big escape. With its close proximity to the U.S., Mexico makes a natural choice for those travelers looking to get away and soak up some warmth and sunshine. Here are three places in Mexico that you should consider for your winter escape.

Punta de Mita

Punta de Mita

According to Susurros Residences Punta de Mita is a large private peninsula in Riviera Nayarit, which is just north of Puerto Vallarta. You can spend the day walking on the gorgeous beaches or enjoy the lively nightlife and culinary scene. This gated community is the ultimate in luxury travel. The picturesque island is surrounded on three sides by warm ocean waters, making it the perfect place to explore a variety of water sports. Boasting an average of 345 days of sunshine per year, Punta de Mita makes a great destination when you want to escape the cold temperatures of winter.


The picture-perfect white-sand beaches and world-famous snorkeling reefs are the main draws of Cozumel. The dry season runs from December through May in this island paradise, making it an ideal time to visit. The island of Cozumel features a laid-back vibe that makes it a good choice for travelers looking for a relaxing experience. Although Cozumel is known for its busy cruise port status that hosts travelers only here for the day, the island also offers a variety of lodging accommodations for those visitors who want to stay awhile and enjoy the natural beauty of this area of Mexico. Chankanaab Beach Adventure Park is also a popular draw. And Cozumel is a short ferry ride away from equally enticing Playa Del Carmen if you are looking to plan a day trip.



This lively Mexican resort city boasts a bevy of fun attractions, natural beauty, and various hotel accommodations in any budget. Like Cozumel, Cancun enjoys the driest weather conditions from December through May. Warm ocean waters all year long mean that you can hop in at any time. As one of the Seven Wonders of the World, Chichen Itza should be at the top of your Cancun bucket list. These ancient Mayan ruins make a great day trip while visiting Cancun. This eclectic city also features an energetic nightlife scene and a wide array of shopping and dining opportunities to please even the most discerning travelers.

Picture yourself laying on the beach with a cool drink in your hand while your neighbors battle the cold back home. Any of these three Mexican destinations will make this dream a reality.
