Be Together in Mexico Beach

Spend some quality time exploring charming Mexico Beach.

Fall is in the air and there’s no better way to take in Florida’s breezy weather than spending some time for two with an escape to sunny Mexico Beach! We provide the ideal location for couples and empty nesters to get away this fall with a variety of places to stay. It’s the perfect time to have fun with your loved one with many accommodations offering special rates!

For couples looking for the home-away feel, a beachfront property is an ideal option. Beachfront houses steps away from the water’s edge provide privacy and the perfect view for beautiful fall sunsets. The Driftwood Inn, located on pristine white Gulf Coast beaches, combines Victorian style with a bed-and-breakfast charm, making guests feel right at home, while the El Governor Motel is conveniently located right beside Sunset Park, home to some of the town’s best live music and events all year long. The Buena Vista is the perfect little motel for charm and privacy, while you don’t have to guess how the Gulfview Motel got its name—stay tuned for brilliant sunsets and sweeping views!

Mexico Beach also has condo rentals with a variety of locations and amenities, ensuring you find the ideal stay for your perfect vacation. Experience the Emerald Coast’s natural wonder up close by staying at one of the campgrounds or RV parks, perfect for a couple’s getaway that’s reminiscent of days past. Cozy up and connect with each other and with the stunning landscapes of Mexico Beach.
