Mar 24th, 2010 | By | Category: Senior Travel

Mexico Travel is a site loaded with travel information and vacation guides. Discover the fascinating world of Mexico. There are several hidden treasures just waiting to be explored.  Ancient Aztec pyramids, authentic foods and fantastic shopping. Whether you are a senior looking to visit past civilizations or simply lay on the beach and work on your golf game… Mexico can accommodate. 

 

We can always access About.com is a site full of helpful information for senior travelers.  2009 was a difficult year for Mexico’s tourism industry. The new strain of influenza, new passport requirements and fears of violence hampered travel to Mexico this past year, but things are looking up and 2010 promises to be a great year for travel to Mexico. So, pack your bags, get out the suntan oil, grab that passport and Adios.

 

The See and Do Directory for the Maya Riviera has this to say: 

Playa del Carmen is one of the fastest growing and most fun towns in the Caribbean.
An international mix of fun loving travelers come here to party, enjoy the beaches
and just generally immerse themselves in the tropical splendor of it all.

 

Playa del Carmen or “Playa” as it’s known to the locals, is in the middle of the Riviera Maya in the state of Quintana Roo, Mexico’s Caribbean vacation land. This place is tons of fun with amazing beaches, great beach vacation accommodations and the ferry to Cozumel which runs numerous trips daily. There are taxis everywhere and a couple bus terminals for connections to Riviera Maya vacation resort towns and other parts of Mexico. Playa del Carmen is only 45 minutes from Tulum ruins, or Cancun. It’s central location makes it convenient to all the sights and adventures on Mexico’s tropical Caribbean coastline.

 

LocoGringo is a highly colorful site with good senior travel guides and information on the Yucatan Peninsula with destinations, beaches, culture and of course Mayan Ruins.

 

An addendum to the Mexico theme… Ever thought about moving to Mexico?  More and more seniors are.  Mexico File is an Insider’s Guide to Living in Mexico.  San Miguel Moving is an international moving company based in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. They specialize in moving households from any of the contiguous 48 states to any region in Mexico as well as from Mexico to the USA. Their relocation services are performed in house and are not brokered out to other companies.  There is a community located in central Mexico that has many Americans living there who are retired.  Why is San Miguel de Allende one of Mexico’s top rated destinations year after year?  Perhaps it is because San Miguel’s weather is nearly perfect year round.  San Miguel de Allende’s picturesque cobblestone streets and colonial architecture have inspired generations of artists.  So even if you are not ready to move south, check out this city as it is a special place.   jeb
