Hollywood’s A-list has been heading south of the border to enjoy Mexico real estate for decades; ever since Elizabeth Taylor helped to put Puerto Vallarta on the map back in 1963 while filming “The Night of the Iguana” with Richard Burton. Their relationship may have made tabloid history, but it also opened the door for a different kind of love affair between celebrities and Mexico’s many picturesque seaside towns that still continues to this day.
As summer has slowly turned into fall, the list of celebs heading to Mexico for a quick getaway has included Halle Berry, Jessica Biel, Justin Timberlake, Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox, Demi Lovato, Bono, Sammy Hagar, Emeril Lagasse, Kenny Chesney and Nicole Richey. Not bad for any all-star lineup!
Halle Berry and Nicole Richey were both in Cabo San Lucas this September, enjoying a late summer vacay in this sunny, luxurious town on Mexico’s Pacific coast. Actress Jessica Biel was also spotted in Cabo during September, attending the wedding of celebrity publicist Meredith O’Sullivan, just before her fiancé Justin Timberlake arrived in town to kick off a weeklong bachelor party celebration.
BFFs and former costars Jennifer Anniston and Courtney Cox headed to Cabo in late September to look for a vacation home. Attracted by the town’s variety of luxury real estate,the pair should have no trouble finding a second home that is roomy, private and equipped with on-site security.
Country music star Kenny Chesney was in Cabo San Lucas in mid-October to perform for Sammy Hagar’s 65th birthday celebration. The guest list also included celebrity chef Emeril Lagasse and a few of Hagar’s former Van Halen musicians, as well as guitarist Joe Satriani.
Singer Demi Lovato was in town to perform at the 2012 Fanta Irresistible Awards in Mexico City, performing her hit “Skyscraper” for an appreciative crowd. Lovato looked stunning on the red carpet in a flowing deep blue skirt and leather bustier.
Finally, U2 front man Bono was given the Order of the Aztec Eagle award, which is highest decoration foreigners can receive, by Mexico’s outgoing President Felipe Calderon in recognition of his humanitarian work and close ties with the country.
