Time to Escape the Crowds? Here’s Why Mexico Makes the Perfect Hideout

When it’s time to escape it all – the crowds, the news, the hysteria – Mexico’s vast lands make the perfect hideout.

Not only is it a short hop from the rest of North America, but it’s also home to some of the world’s finest remote retreats.

At Journey Mexico, we’re well-versed in assisting high-profile travelers who want to avoid others but still want a getaway packed with unforgettable experiences.

From the moment you land we can whisk you away in private transportation to a remote destination. Private staff can provide 5-star resort-level comforts and, when you fancy an adventure or two, we can organize unforgettable activities without any outsiders spoiling the party.

So, if you’re looking to get away from it all, here’s how to escape the crowds in Mexico.

 

Private villas

For a truly secluded escape, exchanging hotels and resorts for a private villa is a must. Thankfully, that doesn’t mean you’ll need to give up the benefits of a resort. Luxury villas can offer everything one would expect in a resort – gyms, security, swimming pools – but without having to share them with anyone else.

Take a look at some of the options below to find your perfect private retreat.

Remote destinations

Mexico is home to plenty of private gated communities that offer seclusion from the outside world – Punta Mita or the many offerings in Los Cabos for instance. But when only complete remoteness will do, two destinations stand out for their peace, quiet, and absence of large hotel resorts.

Careyes

Sol de Occidente in Careyes

Perched on the Costa Alegre on Mexico’s Pacific Coast, the luxurious getaway of Careyes is an ultra-exclusive private estate made up of ocean castles and private villas. Founded in 1968 by adventurer, visionary, and one-time banker, Gian Franco Brignone, Careyes is where pioneering architects, artists, and creatives go to escape the crowds and live in peace. Everything you need (and much more) is provided through luxurious on-site facilities and the stunning natural beauty of area.

 

Sian Ka’an

Casa Nalum in the Sian Ka’an

One of Mexico’s largest and most important protected habitats, the Sian Ka’an is about as remote as it gets. Just south of Tulum, the UNESCO World Heritage Site has 400,000 hectares of land – that’s around 750,000 football fields – and 120 kilometers of coastline. There’s also 120,000 hectares of protected marine area which includes parts of the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef, the world’s second-largest reef.

Asides from its sheer size, it’s also a spectacular natural habitat for tropical and endangered wildlife including jaguars, manatees, cougars, dolphins, monkeys and much, much more. A select few properties enjoy a spot in the Sian Ka’an, making it one of the most exclusive and remote retreats in Mexico.

Flights without the crowds

One of the easiest ways to escape the crowds is to avoid commercial airports and hop on a private jet. More affordable than people assume, particularly when traveling with a family or group, your costs for private air travel might not be much more than nice seats on a commercial flight. It is a convenient way to travel and a great way to avoid crowds.

Flying into Mexico

As a destination favored by the world’s rich and famous, Mexico is well-suited to those who want to make a crowd-free entrance. There are more than 40 airports accepting private jet charters across the country including major destinations such as Los Cabos, Cancun, Mexico City, Oaxaca, and Puerto Vallarta.

 

Getting around Mexico

Once you’re in Mexico, privately charted jets and helicopter flights are the easiest and quickest ways to hop from destination to destination while still avoiding the crowds. At Journey Mexico, we’re used to organizing private flights for our customers, so booking the right aircraft for your needs won’t be a problem. Plus, there’s no lines, no waiting, and no hassle.

 

Crowd-free experiences and activities

It’s also possible to have all the wonderful experiences you would typically enjoy on a vacation, but in complete privacy (it’s what we specialize in!). Check out some of the vacation-boosting experiences and activities we can arrange for you.

Unique private experiences

For a completely crowd-free experience, we have an exhaustive list of private activities available. It would take far too long to name them all here but highlights include: a private tequila tasting session at Casa Dragones, one of the world’s finest boutique producers; private catamaran cruises on the Caribbean Sea; and a hot air balloon flight over a volcano in Colima. In-villa experiences such as private cooking classes or beach-side yoga lessons can also be arranged for those who would prefer to stay in the property.

 

Off-hours visits to Mexico’s landmarks

For those who would hate to miss the iconic attractions, Journey Mexico can also organize off-hours visits. These extra-special excursions can be arranged at Chichen Itza, the National Anthropology Museum, and the beach-side ruins at Tulum. The sites will still be open to the general public, but we know from experience that the number of people there will be very low.

 

Private transportation

Getting from your accommodation to any of the experiences without meeting another soul (apart from the driver, of course) is easy. Private transportation can be arranged in clean, luxurious vehicles with plenty of room.

 

Private staff

And just because you’ve chosen a vacation away from the crowds, doesn’t mean you have to give up the comforts of staff. Every one of the itineraries we handcraft include 24/7 concierge and in-country support as standard. The majority of the luxury villas in our portfolio also come with additional staff such as housekeeping. On top of that, many come with resort-style staff such as private drivers, personal trainers, private chefs, butlers, and yoga teachers. Anything that’s missing, we can add.
