No. 12 La Casa Que Canta, Zihuatanejo, Mexico
All the rooms at this 25-suite hideaway have panoramic ocean views and notably absent televisions, with some offering private plunge pools and terraces. Because of the construction style—several sangria-red villas built into a terraced hillside above La Ropa beach—there are lots of secluded decks and hidden corners. A saltwater pool adjacent to the beach is filled naturally by the sea; lounge there in the evening with a salty lime margarita and piquant tiritas de pescado (ceviche-like fish salad) as mariachis play sweet boleros and the sun sets into the Pacific.
