Renowned for its picturesque, sandy beaches, Mexico has more shoreline than any country in the Western Hemisphere south of the United States. Its Gulf Coast and Caribbean beaches feature turquoise blue and green waters and Mexico’s white and toupe-colored Pacific beaches appear to go on forever.
As impressive as the beaches are, Mexico’s mountains are on different scale than most people in the United States are accustomed to. The summits of more than a dozen of Mexico’s peaks are higher in elevation than any mountain summits in the Continental United States. Mexico even has two dormant volcanos with summits over 18,000 feet, a staggering 4,000 feet higher than any of the mountain peaks in Colorado or California.
No surprise, then, that Mexico is home to some of the most beautiful sunset-settings in the world. Whether your ideal sunset spills toward you over the ocean or you prefer watching the setting sun fall behind mountains, the following is a list of the 21 places to watch the sunset in Mexico.
