In years past I’ve blogged about late winter locales such as Florida, Washington D.C., Death Valley, New Orleans, Australia, and New Zealand. Another desirable destination this time of year is Mexico. It’s very accessible, reasonably affordable, and the cuisine can be some of the best around. I’d avoid the interior right now and concentrate on small coastal towns.

Although no longer as small as it once was, Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo still retains traditional Mexican culture in parts and offers everything the larger resort cities do. It’s certainly an alternative to the Caribbean or Hawaii. Great photo opps too. Check it out!
