Mexico Holidays

Mexico has it all… the ruins of ancient civilisations, a fascinating colonial history, wonderful Pacific and Caribbean beaches, dramatic canyons, steamy jungles, superb cuisine, excellent hospitality – and of course mariachi bands and tequila. Most visitors begin their Mexico holiday in the capital, Mexico City, one of the largest metropolises in the world, and somewhere worth spending a few days. Its outstanding Anthropology Museum is reason alone to visit, and ideal preparation for Mexico’s archaeological sites. One of the most memorable, the colossal pre-Aztec city of Teotihuacán with its Pyramids of the Sun and Moon, is an easy day trip from the city.

Central Mexico is also the home to the silver mining cities such as arty San Miguel de Allende and hilly Guanajuato, which have superbly maintained colonial centres.

Further north is the Copper Canyon – a series of awesomely deep and wild canyons that are best experienced on the famous Copper Canyon Railway. Or make for Baja California and the Sea of Cortes, where between January and March, whale watching is probably the best in all the Americas.

South east of Mexico City, the charming town of Oaxaca is a popular stop over with its fine colonial buildings, colourful markets and Zapotec ruins nearby.

No holiday in Mexico would be complete without visiting the Yucatan’s major Mayan sites of Chichen Itza and Uxmal, which offer fascinating insights into this ancient Mesoamerican civilisation. You can stay close to the sites, or visit them from the nearby city of Merida, or on day trips from the Riviera Maya.

Running from Cancun in the north to the picturesque site of Tulum in the south, this coast is lined with a succession of stunning white-sand beaches. A huge range of accommodation options are offered here to suit all budgets and tastes from exclusive resorts to rustic beachside lodges.

It’s easy to put together Mexico holidays with both word-class cultural activities and time relaxing on a fabulous beach.
