Long the playground of mostly American visitors, Mexico's Pacific Coast draws a growing number of travelers from distant corners of the world with its diverse landscapes and good tourist infrastructure. White-sand beaches backed by lush vegetation remain the top Pacific Coast attraction, though this area also encompasses mountains and rugged jungle terrain ideal for adventurers, nature lovers, and photographers. A trip to Pacific Coast puts action in the great outdoors right at your fingertips, allowing you to swim in jungle-framed coves, eat in quaint fishing villages, and zipline through the foothills of the Sierra Madre Mountains. A popular alternative to overcrowded Cancun, this coastline also features Puerto Vallarta, boasting a colonial-era plaza and a network of cobblestoned streets.
