Southern Pacific Coast

Landscapes here vary from white-sand surfer beaches and arid deserts to Mediterranean-style scrub and luxuriant forest.

Along this extensive coastline there are areas which are highly commercialised (Acapulco, Mazatlán, Puerto Vallarta). However, there are hotels and resorts with their own extensive grounds on less developed stretches of coast, especially around Manzanillo and Zihuatanejo. The Oaxaca shoreline around Huatulco and Puerto Escondido is particularly spectacular, with stretches of virgin beach. ​
