Cerritos Beach is the perfect place to avoid the crowds. Cerritos beach is a surfers’ haven, and great for the whole family! If it’s swimming in the Pacific you’re after, there are very few beaches on the Pacific side that are safe—except for the jaw-dropping Playa Cerritos. To truly get off the grid, Playa Cerritos is just a few miles up the road on Highway 19. Take a left on Highway 19 at kilometer 66 to reach the oasis, which includes the luxury boutique hotel Hacienda Cerritos with four pools (including two infinity pools) and a helicopter pad, and the more traditional hotel and condo complex Cerritos Surf Colony.
Playa Cerritos is a world of its own, with surf lessons, local artisans selling trinkets, massages on the beach, and horseback-riding lessons. And of course, the Cerritos Beach Club, which offers music, breakfast and lunch—and they provide service directly to your beach chair. There’s even Day of the Dead bartenders, reminding everyone that this is still Mexico.
