About Mexico Beach

Vacation Mexico Beach Style

Mexico Beach is located in Northwest Florida, about 20 miles southeast of Panama City and a million miles away from the traffic, crowds and congestion of most other coastal towns. This is old Florida the way you remember it from your youth. Quiet, safe, and gorgeous. It's an easy place for families, couples and friends to reconnect.   


Mexico Beach was just named one of the Top 25 Best Family Beach Vacation Ideas in Florida by Dream Vacation Magazine. Thank you, and we can’t wait to see all the families who come down and visit us this year!
