Aeromexico recently introduced nonstop flights between New York's JFK airport and Monterrey, in northeastern Mexico. Monterrey has its share of culture, history, and gastronomy, but the city's greatest asset may be its setting. Surrounded by the spectacular Sierra Madre mountains and the Cumbres de Monterrey National Park, Monterrey offers hiking, rock climbing, horseback riding, camping, parapenting, cave exploring, and, if you like your scenery upside down, bungee jumping. AeroMexico has also just started nonstop service between Los Angeles and Acapulco. 800-237-6639.
