Vacaciones en México

Este año quiero pasar mis vacaciones en México en diciembre. El año pasado fuimos a Acapulco y nos gustaba mucho pero también fue muy costoso. Quiero reservar el próximo mes pero busco un lugar que no está tan afectado del turismo, si eso existe allá.
Leí que Puerto Vallarta es muy hermoso y económico. Espero que me puedan ayudar a recomendar un lugar adecuado. Debería hacer buen tiempo en invierno y estar, como mencionado arriba, económico en comparación con Acapulco o Cancún. También tiene que haber una playa.

Gracias

Saludos de California. Vivo dos horas de la frontera con Mexico.
Manzanillo es una playa buena en el estado de Colima. Fui de Guadalajara
a Manzanillo en autobus. Manzanillo esta como 3 horas al sur en coche de
Puerto Vallarta para darte una idea donde esta. Tal vez menos.
La proxima estado al sur es Michoacan.
Voy a Guanajuato y Queretaro el martes 27 de mayo 2014.
O sea en pocos dias.

I spent some time in Tampico and its sister city Ciudad Madera. It’s on the Gulf coast of Mexico, and there’s a beach nearby. How much you would enjoy it would depend somewhat on who goes along with you on vacation. If you have little kids or teenagers, they might not appreciate all the cultural aspects of the experience. Better to go alone or with a very like-minded significant other. Tampico is not a tourist destination like Acapulco or Cancún. It’s a regular city with a beach. It’s a good place to interact with ordinary Mexicans and improve your Spanish, not just in conversation but from reading signs and labels. (Oh, so that’s what they call it here….) One of the first things I learned in Mexico was the name for Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes: Zucaritas.

While in Mexico, I was careful to drink bottled water and eat food that came from a sealed container, because gringos are susceptible to some food-borne bacteria that the locals have immunity to. (Do that for a week, and you really miss regular prepared food. One of the first things I did when back across the border in the U.S. was to head for a fast-food joint.) If you make some friends in Mexico and they offer you a prepared snack or meal, say a little prayer and partake. Better that than to offend.

If it’s not warm enough for beach activities in Tampico, I would suggest taking a bus down the Gulf coast to Veracruz. I haven’t been there myself, but like Tampico, it’s not all that promoted as a tourist destination.

I wouldn't worry much about the water. Whether or not you are very careful about thing tap water will reach your system in the form or ice cubes, salads, showers, etc. The water doesn't make me sick. I don't drink copious amounts and always buy a big bottle of purified or spring water at a convenience store as many Mexicans do. If you worry, get a prescription for Cipro or cefalofloxin, but use it only if you get sick and not as a prophylactic dose.
Also, drugstores in Mexico stock this probably.
Mexico City is very crowded but definitely a great place to visit, not just because it is culturally very rich, but because it can be used as a home base for many easily-reached cities and cultural sites nearby. Intercity bus service is very efficient and inexpensive, and buses run frequently to late hours in many cases. If you shop around, rooms at good four star hotels can be found for about seventy dollars a night breakfast included which is really inexpensive compared to USA or Europe. I don't see Mexico City as a particularly relaxing place, although is some parts it is. It's a challenge full of good surprises if you are willing to explore.

First of all, thank you all for your replies. I usually spend my vacations on quiet little places, preferably on the beach. I'm not really much into culture and all that, expect some ancient stuff. I can't really find inexpensive places in Mexico that'd be worth it. On the other side I've just found some very good offers in Honulu, Hawaii; 7 days/800€ per person.

Does that include the flight? If it does, it's amazing. With the frequent flyer points you may even get another free flight somewhere like Mexico.

According to the web site it is. The hotel isn't far from the beach, 8.3 out of 10 stars (they might be wrong too but who knows) and breakfast included. I've never been there before but I heard it's amazing.
I have to dig a little deeper because the offer seems a bit to tempting to me.

I'm writing from Mexico right now and having the best time of my life.
Staying in the very pintoresco jewel of a town called Salvatierra, Guanajuato.
Very historical with buildings and churches dating from 1600. People are so
friendly and nice. The best part of Mexico is being with the friendly people.
You can read my report on my adventures in Mexico in the
culture section.

I have just noticed something incredible here in Mexico.
Nobody smokes on the streets. No men smoking. No women
smoking. No adolescence smoking. They have some strong
cigarette warning labels. In Switzerland everybody was smoking.
Even in the restaurants. Italy, France Belguim where I have gone
many smoking. How is it that there are less smokers in Mexico
than all those other countries including the U.S.
