Destinations / North America

For the rest of the year vacations may look a little different, with social distancing mandates in effect, off-limit destinations and the possibility of having to quarantine before or after a trip. With all this in mind as you start planning your vacation, consider Mexico — it’s close to the United States, open to visitors and home to many destinations where you can enjoy a secluded stay.


One such destination, Las Brisas Acapulco, situated along the Pacific Ocean, is open and ready. The resort boasts several two-bedroom suites, as well a three-bedroom suite offering plenty of seclusion and even a private pool.


For families looking for a two-bedroom suite, check out La Cascada and La Encantada; both suites boast stunning views of the Pacific Ocean. Each suite also provides plenty of space for a family (up to six), offering one bedroom with a king-sized bed and another with two double beds. The space also includes two bathrooms, a common/living room, a dining area and a deck with a private pool and Jacuzzi.


Villa Ramona, the three-bedroom suite, offers plenty of room and space for a family of eight. The massive terrace offers great views of Acapulco Bay and space for family dining. In addition to the bedrooms, the suite also includes a living room, a dining area and a private pool.

Other amenities to take advantage of are La Concha Beach Club featuring a swimming pool, a swim-up bar and two saltwater grottos; on-property transportation by open-air Jeep or options to rent to explore the surrounding area; in-room spa options; and options to have meals delivered to your room from a selection of restaurants.


Before you leave, make sure to visit the Pink Walk of Fame to see what Hollywood stars visited the resort.
