Mexico Beaches

Mexico City lies in the valley of Mexico at an altitude of 2,240 metres.

Due to its position in the valley, the city island locked and therefore does not have any beaches. There are, however, some amazing beaches like Tecolutla Beach and Acapulco Beach which are little far away from the city but definitely worth the trip to enjoy the best of Mexico's sun and sand.

Alternatively, you can visit a theme parks offering outdoor activities, water sports etc.
