Tour de Mexico

Today is Cinco de Mayo, a Mexican holiday celebrating the victory over France in the Battle of Puebla. Although it is traditionally a Mexican holiday, many Americans like to join in with the celebration south of the border. In honor of Cinco de Mayo, we’re taking a tour de Mexico to show you some GolfNow courses fit for a fiesta, along with local Mexican fare, because what’s a party without a little comida y bebida?

El Tigre Golf and Country Club (Puerto Vallarta, JC) – Reviewed as one of the “Top 10 golf courses in All of Mexico” by Golf Guide Magazine and Golf in Mexico Magazine, El Tigre Golf and Country Club provides one of the most challenging golf games in Mexico. Not only is the course a beast, but at the entryway, a Bengal tiger lives (securely) in his natural habitat. Think you can tame El Tigre?

Nearby restaurant, La Palapa, is located on the beach and has the fun atmosphere you’re looking for on a night out in Mexico. Guests will enjoy exotic drinks in handblown glassware, along with freshly caught seafood from the bay and live music.

Puerto Cancun Golf Club (Cancun, QR) – Puerto Cancun Golf Club is nestled right in between the Cancun hotel district and downtown. Designed by Tom Weiskopf, the star of the course is the natural tropical Cancun landscape, with holes close to the canals and Caribbean Sea.

If you’re feeling adventurous in Cancun, schedule a cooking class with Can Cook In Cancun, where their motto is “mi cocina es tu cocina.”
