Mexico has always been a favorite getaway from the cold months of the winter season in the U.S. They have beautiful beaches, a vibrant nightlife and worthwhile cultural attractions. Here are some of the best places to escape to in Mexico:

Playa del Carmen is one of the best diving spots in the world because of its abundant sea life and amazing underwater caves, according to Trip Advisor. On land, Playa is now more modernized as compared to the fishing village that it was before. You can enjoy a round of golf or watch the spider monkeys at The Jungle Place. Delve into the ancient ruins of the Coba Mayan Village, or just shop along 5th Avenue.

Begin your vacation by strolling, shopping, and sipping tequila at the Malecon boardwalk of Puerto Vallarta. Then stroll the cobblestone streets of Old Vallarta to shop at the flea market for local handmade crafts. The warm, serene waters of the Bay of Banderas is good for diving, or you can choose to watch the sand sculptors at work with their sculptures. For art buffs, you can tour the fine art galleries in El Centro.

More to offer than its party-town reputation, Cancun has a lot of delightful family resorts which cater specifically to those who want to experience the tropical Yucatan climate. There are also Mayan ruins here you can explore, like the El Rey and the Yamil Lu'um and learn more about this ancient civilization at the Museo Maya de Cancun. Visit the Museo Sensorial del Tequila to taste Mexican dishes.

A famous destination for spring breakers and A-list travelers is Cabo San Lucas. The beaches here are varied, from the smooth waters of the Sea of Cortez and Playa del Amor to the waves of Zippers for surfers. Head to the coves and explore the rock formations of the Cannery beaches. Kids will enjoy the local animals by swimming with dolphins or taking a camel ride at the Desert Park Natural Reserve.

Tulum has become a favorite vacation destination for luxury travelers. You will find some of the best-preserved Mayan ruins that have the cerulean waters of the Caribbean Sea as a backdrop. There are several cenotes (or underground water-filled caverns) and bioreserves. Tulum continues to be an alternative to the other Riviera Maya resort areas during the spring break season.
