Cabo San Lucas has something for every type of traveler: If you're looking for luxury, resorts like the Esperanza an Auberge peer out from the coves of the Baja California Sur; if you're after adventure, the hiking trails of Mount Solmar beckon; if it's partying you're after, then Senor Frog's and Sammy Hagar's legendary Cabo Wabo thump until the early hours.

Long a tropical playground of the North American rich and famous, Puerto Vallarta rises up from between the Pacific beaches of the Bahia de Banderas in a medley of shiny condos and makeshift rum bars, bubbling surfer shacks and yacht-dotted jetties.
