What comes to mind about beach resorts? Primetime Vacations Specials knows that swimming, basking in the sun and playing beach sports will all be inevitable. For these reasons, items such as swimsuits, sunglasses, sandals and sunscreen should be among your items to pack list. If you forget to pack the items above, there are shops where these items can be bought, though they are usually more expensive in foreign countries, reminds Primetime Vacations Specials.

It is important to note, though, that sunscreens, body lotions, and other liquid items should not be packed in your carry-on luggage, because of government restrictions on liquids on planes. They should instead be packed into checked suitcases. Remember to bring a digital camera to capture the memories of your time at whichever destination you choose to visit. Primetime Vacations Specials remind you to make sure that the camera has enough memory to contain at least a thousand pictures; this way you will be able to preserve your memories forever.

Primetime Vacations Specials Presents Must See Places in Mexico


  • The Lighthouse in Mazatlan has been warning ships since 1571. Take a 30-45 minute hike up the old stairs and natural trails to 515 feet above sea level and be rewarded with a fantastic view. The aquarium in Mazatlan has 50 tanks of sharks and fish and is a fun family day trip. Visitors are splashed at the animal shows held three times a day. Make sure to see the kissing sea lions, penny-pinching parrots, and the habitats of both turtles and crocodiles.


  • When visiting in Cancun, Primetime Vacations Specials recommends a visit to Croco Cun, about 19 miles outside of town. What began as a crocodile breeding farm, it was rebuilt as an interactive conservation zoo after Hurricane Gilberto in 1988.  With a focus on promoting and protecting crocodiles, friendly guides take visitors on an hour tour. This is a fun way for all ages to learn about local flora and fauna. Visitors can also feed a spider monkey, hold a baby croc, and walk through an area where the crocodiles roam free.


  • The post-classical Mayan city of Tulum is a favorite place to visit the Mayan Ruins. Primetime Vacations Specialsrecommends this as a day trip. The city is well maintained and even has a beach. Originally designed as a seaport, Tulum has a city wall with rolling hills stretching towards the castle. Tours are available of this Mayan City, the only one built on the coast.
