Celebrities Who Love To Travel To Mexico and Where They Go
Some places offer something so unique that they grab the attention of even some of the most recognized celebrities worldwide. Through the years, Mexico has had its share of places like that, coming to mind Acapulco in the ‘60s and Puerto Vallarta in the ‘70s, when Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton put it in the international spotlight. Nowadays, instead of Acapulco, you may have Tulum and Punta Mita has taken the place of Puerto Vallarta, but international celebrities still have a weakness for Mexico.
Take Punta Mita, for example; this is a whole peninsula converted into a private gated community with only three world-class hotels inside (Four Seasons, W Hotel, and St. Regis), and the rest of the area filled with exclusive golf courses, luxury villas, stunning beach clubs, and top-notch restaurants. The privacy of the area, combined with the upscale luxury services available, have made Punta Mita a preferred destination for celebrities such as Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Lawrence, Selena Gomez, Lady Gaga, Charly Sheen, and Jessica Alba. Girls are Gone Wild creator Joe Francis owns a property in the area and has become a host of sorts to visiting Hollywood celebrities.
On its part, Tulum has become the latest Riviera Maya hotspot and has created a well-defined boho-chic personality that celebrities can’t get enough of. Tulum’s hotel zone is filled with ultra-luxurious boutique hotels, exclusive restaurants managed by renowned international Chefs, and original bars with famous mixologists. All this in a single, small little street, surrounded by tropical jungle and exotic nightclubs where some famous DJs play once their summer residences in Ibiza finish. Among the celebrities that have adopted Tulum as their favorite vacation spots are Tara Reid, Paris Hilton, Sami Miro, Zac Efron, Miranda Kerr, NFL quarterback Jay Cutler, Al Pacino, Richard Gere, Leonardo DiCaprio, Siena Miller, and Drew Barrymore.
In 2017, Tulum also received big names such as Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas, Rene Zellweger, Justin Bieber, and Ewan McGregor. Of course, famous socialites Kim and Kourtney Kardashian were also spotted in Tulum’s white-sand beaches. Some celebrities use it as a yoga-and-detox getaway; this is the case of Reese Witherspoon, Cara Delevigne, and Heidi Klum.
Then you have Cabo. You will always have a Cabo. The thing with this Mexican destination is that it mixes the beach’s sand with that of the desert, offering a unique landscape. Since the infamous Tony Romo (another NFL quarterback) wildcard weekend getaway in the then-girlfriend Jessica Simpson company, Cabo has been a must for celebrities looking for a short but exclusive kind of vacation. The wide array of luxury villas along Cabo shoreline make it an attractive option for celebrities such as rock star Tommy Lee, socialite Paris Hilton, and hip-hop artist Lil Jon. Known for its legendary nightlife, Cabo also attracts bad boys such as Guns and Roses guitarist, Slash, and actors Sean Penn and Charlie Sheen. Jennifer Aniston, Adam Sandler, and basketball legend Michael Jordan are also regulars of this stunning beach town.
If you want to experience the kind of life that celebrities regularly enjoy, maybe trying to visit one of these trendy Mexican destinations wouldn’t be such a bad idea. You will find more information about luxury villa rentals in Punta Mita and beach house rentals in Tulum, Mexico.
