Along Mexico's vast Pacific coastline, well-known glitzy resorts such as Puerto Vallarta and Acapulco share space with smaller, more low-key towns, villages, hotels and unspoiled beaches. Mexico Pacific Coast holidays are generally more relaxed than those in either the Yucatan or Baja California, and are ideal for surfing, mountain biking, fishing and lovers of barefoot eco chic. In addition, the beaches tend to be unspoiled with fewer visitors, and the fragile ecosystem better protected, meaning that this region contains some of Mexico's most important sea turtle and bird reserves. In the state of Jalisco,
fields of cactus cover the arid landscape and you are likely to reach your idyllic beachfront hotel via a dusty dirt track as desert gives way to crashing waves. On the subject of hotels, they tend still to offer superb levels of service, accommodation and, of course, setting, but they tend to be more sensitive to their environment here, and you are more likely to be sleeping in charming 'casitas' or small thatched houses than in an air-conditioned building.

Great trip. The highlights were exploring the vintage market in Mexico City, dinner on the roof top overlooking the church in San Miguel de Allende and wandering the streets there.
