I will be ending my 8 month trip in mexico and would really like to just chill on some beaches for a little while. What are your favourite beaches that you would recommend? More interested in places that arenĀ“t jammed packed with people or too touristy (by that, I mean, not too party!). Also, I will be there in Sept, is the Carribeans side or Pacific side better atthis time of year? And lastely, are there any beaches in Guatamala or Belize that might be an alternative to Mexico.

thanks so much

Def visit Mazunte south of Puerto Escondido. Not turisty, laid back, cheap, soft sand, good waves...There's a hostel called Carlos Einstein and the owner (carlos) is a crazy man, but he let's you work a bit and you can safe a few bucks if you're on a tight budget. Got some pictures on my website if you'd like to see it...

What about Playa Del Carmen, down the coast from Cancun.

You could do Cancun and the island of Cozumel at the same time.

Look no further than Isla Holbox off the northern coast of the Yucatan.
