Holidays to Mexico

Mexico is alive with culture, celebration, contemporary art and an intriguing history. Throw some spectacular mountain, desert and jungle scenery into the mix, and you’ve got a destination that is worthy of your time and discovery.

The enormous and thriving capital, Mexico City, is a fusion of ancient, colonial and modern-day architecture. This is where some of the best of Mexico’s sophisticated and fiery gastronomical treats are found, extending way beyond the stereotypical tacos and burritos. The street food is incredible too – don’t miss trying grilled 'elotes' as a late-night snack.

In the Yucatán Peninsula there’s an abundance of history, architecture and scenery to be found. Chichén Itzá is one of Mexico’s world-heralded architectural sites so should be near the top of your to-do list, especially if you’re a first-timer to Mexico. Then there’s the archaeological zone of Teotihuacan, known as the City of the Gods. Challenge yourself to climb the steep steps of the magnificent Pyramids of the Sun and Moon for a worthwhile reward - panoramic views of the impressive ruins.

Ending a holiday with a few days on a beach is never a bad thing. On the Pacific coast, you can try surfing and whale watching, or visit Baja California, the stretch of land that extends down from San Diego in the United States. On the east coast, you’ve got Tulum and Holbox Island, one of Mexico's best kept secrets and the perfect paradise for honeymooners.
