The beaches of this Mexican resort town are golden and broad, ideal for hours of lounging or swimming, although travelers’ time would be equally well spent in town. Start at Hector’s Bistro, a converted 1840s home that serves European-influenced fare. Casa Etnika displays handmade pillows, dishes, scarves, and jewelry, including a pretty beaded necklace in Frida Kahlo’s likeness. You can taste the city’s specialties at Mercado Municipal Pino Suárez, a market filled with vendors hawking produce, pantry goods, and fresh-baked pastries. Nearby, Catedral Basílica de la Inmaculada Concepción is a Baroque Revival gem. If the beach still beckons, head to El Muchacho Alegre for fresh oysters and octopus tostadas by the water.
