Some travelers to Mexico call their time "adventures in paradise" while a recent tourism promotion had this to say, "As a destination, Mexico continues to develop a purist's product with appeal for all interests - sportfishing, golf, diving, health & wellness, gastronomy - and much more."

Mexico truly has a vast array of special interest travel opportunities available and all supported by good weather which translated means - no off seasons!. The country is also surrounded by water so for water sports lovers there are thousands of miles from which to choose, visit and play.

Among the key adventures are: adventures at sea, sensational scuba, great dining and a host of other activities including river rafting, cave diving, desert caravans, mountain trekking, shark encounters, swimming, and honeymoon delights.

Popular sea adventures can be found marlin fishing in Los Cabos and sailfish tournaments in Cancun. You will find fantastic scuba in Cozumel, Riviera Maya and La Paz with the number of quality dives totally endless. One unique is the Guadalupe Island dive 165 miles west of Ensenada in the Pacific Ocean that is among the best in the world to see white sharks.

Another scuba paradise is Revillagigedos Archipelago, 250 miles south of Cabo San Lucas where the group of islands are compared to the Galapagos Islands for big animal encounters such s the Giant Pacific manta ray.

And if you like just plain boating and sailing you might want to try a regatta in Riviera Nayarit, live-aboard cruise from Loreto to Cabo San Lucas or simply enjoying the thousands of miles of beaches.

If its food you like then come to Mexico where you will find some of the best gastronomic delights in the world including tamales, chocolate, aguas fescas, cheese, chorizo, tejate, coffees, bananas, pineapples, red snapper, pompano, shrimp, moles, gorditas, salsas and ice creams covered with exotic fruits.

A firm commitment by Mexico to promote sustainable tourism enable eco-travelers to enjoy close up and personal interactions with nature. Ecotourism has become a major focus by the Mexican Federal Government and is supported by eco-oriented organizations within Mexico and around the world.

Top three eco-tourism features include birding, whale watching and butterfly observing. Puerto Vallarta in western Mexico offers a great variety of birds and visitors can tour mangroves, coastal lagoons, pine and oak forests and secluded beaches. Bird watchers will find up to 455 different species including the Military Macaw, Orange-fronted Parakeet, Citreoline Trogons, Magpie Jays, Jacanas, Warblers, Acorn woodpeckers, San Blas Jays, Russet-crowned motmot, Herons & Egrets, Blue-Footed Boobies, Brown Boobies and Magnificent Frigate birds.

And whale watchers will have plenty to see along the Pacific coast, especially in the Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit areas and the most world-renowned site - the State of Baja California Sur where travelers will see numbers and variety of species greater than anywhere in the world.

If you are in Mexico between November and March in the forests of Michoacan near Morelia you will find millions of Monarch Bufferflies who have migrated from the US and Canada. Sanctuaries have been established and one is the Cerro Pelon.
