Marvelous beach resorts combine with stunning landscapes and world class heritage.
The Caribbean coast
Lively Cancun, probably the most famous resort, has large hotels, bars and nightclubs, but further south the pace slows down on the Riviera Maya, where luxury hotels hug pristine beaches.
Ancient Mayan ruins and charming colonial cities can also be found in this corner of Mexico – with Chichen Itza with its famous pyramid, the port city of Tulum, the archaeological site of Calakmul and the cities of Merida, Uxmal and Coba – all enjoyable day trips away from the beach resorts
The Pacific coast
Stylish resorts, rugged coastlines and luxury hotels offering superior Mexican hospitality are synonymous with Mexico’s Pacific coast.
From the sparkling marinas and retro Hollywood glamour immortalised in ‘Night of the Iguana’ to the wild open spaces, amazing surfing beaches and phenomenal marine life of Baja California- there’s the perfect holiday spot to suit all tastes here.
Los Cabos offers dramatic scenery with steep cliffs and intriguing wildlife. Riviera Nayarit, a short drive from Puerto Vallarta is a quiet beach resort with impressive lava rock formations and white sand beaches and Marieta Island has fantastic opportunities for scuba diving, swimming with turtles and humpback whale watching
History and heritage
Known as tourism’s sleeping giant, Mexico is making many ‘bucket lists’ for its varied heritage that includes Aztec and Mayan sights as well as a well-preserved heritage from the colonial era.
Mexico City has dozens of parks, galleries, churches, historic sites and museums to choose from – and to keep energised during all this sightseeing, don’t miss out on the churrerías for the deep fried sugar-coated churros, paired with hot chocolate in a variety of flavours.
