Mexico is full of life and colour, from its ancient Mayan ruins and bright colonial cities, to its Caribbean beaches and azure cenotes.
With a bold Latin spirit, rich cultural heritage and world-famous cuisine, a luxury holiday to Mexico could see you staying in a boutique hotel on the tropical beaches of the Riviera Maya, exploring the Mayan Ruins of Palenque in Chiapas, or whale watching in Baja California. With landscapes ranging from arid deserts to steaming jungles, there are plenty of opportunities for exploring the natural environment, whether its hiking to hidden waterfalls, scuba diving in cenotes, or kayaking in mangrove forests.
With a history spanning thousands of years, culture enthusiasts will delight at the wealth of Mayan and Aztec ruins that can be found in Mexico, including Chichen Itza, one of the New Seven Wonders of the World, the Teotihuacan Pyramids, located northeast of Mexico City, and Monte Álban, a vast pre-Columbian archaeological site in Oaxaca.
For those looking for a luxury beach holiday, enjoy the beautiful beaches of Mexico’s Caribbean coastline, where you can stay in five-star resorts, go snorkelling in the Great Mayan Reef, and visit nearby archaeological sites. The Riveria Maya is particularly ideal for family holidays, with many resorts offering all-inclusive plans and child-friendly activities. For couples and honeymooners, the luxury beachfront hotels of Tulum make for a particularly romantic stay, or head off the beaten track and visit the untouched beaches of Mexico’s Pacific coastline.
The best time to visit Mexico is during the dry season between the months of December and April, when you can expect warm, sunny days and minimal chances of rain. Avoid travel in the months of August and September, which is the height of Mexico’s hurricane and rainy season.
Mexico’s experiences varied climates and temperatures all year round due to it’s large landmass, however generally the best time to visit is between December and April as the weather is warm and there is very little rainfall, while the wet season runs between May to September.
Cancun’s coveted beaches are universally loved by families, honeymooners and couples alike, and the Riviera Maya showcases the best of the best.
If you dream of powdery white sands, bright turquoise warm waters and swaying palms, then you may be dreaming of the Riviera Maya. This stunning, upscale coastal region of Mexico boasts endless beaches and plenty of luxurious ocean-facing resorts to choose from. Spend your days soaking up the sun on the white sands, slicing across the waters on kayaks, or snorkelling into the colourful reefs that dwell below.
Visit Tulum and you’ll get a chance to experience Mexico as it should be; wander along powdery secluded beaches, taste truly authentic local cuisines and be amazed by dramatically situated ancient Mayan ruins.
Your trip to Mexico will never be complete without a visit to Tulum. Head to one of the many quiet beaches and you’ll be blessed with pristine white sands, emerald warm waters and plenty of hidden caverns and caves to explore. Explore further inland and you’ll discover incredible Mayan ruins that truly transport you back in time.
Mexico City is easily one of the most underrated cities in the world, and you could spend days exploring the myriad of sights, restaurants, bars and beauty that dwell above this concrete jungle, but it’d be a shame to visit without viewing Frida Kahlo’s astounding works of art.
A private tour of her incredible work will see you going to not only the city’s most prestigious galleries, but also to her house and slightly awkwardly, her lover’s mistress’s house too. Seeing her artwork in Mexico where she was born, influenced and shaped as person offers so much more perspective than a flick through a coffee table book.
They don’t have it with salt and lime in Mexico, because the flavour is so much more pronounced and nowhere near as undesirable as our supermarket’s offerings; the tequila here is simply incredible.
The origins remain slightly hazy but the name Tequila actually comes from a town near the birthplace of the drink, as opposed to the birthplace itself. History aside, the way Tequila is brewed in Mexico results in an incredible and unmissable drink that must be tasted when you visit. After a sampling session, you’ll never want to go back to the salt and lime again.
Just the mere mention of the word ‘Mexico’ bring to mind images of faces painted into sugar skulls and colourful flowers, but the Day of the Dead is so much more than that.
Head to Oaxaca City (the birthplace of the festival) and you’ll notice that the festivities start amping up about a week before the 2nd November. Some choose to remember those who have passed in the comfort of their own homes, while others take to the streets and become part of an incredible festival that celebrates life and the living; definitely bring your camera!
Taste Mexico’s authentic dishes in their country of origin, and you’ll wonder whether you’ve even tried real Mexican food before.
Where to start? It’s impossible to say because there are so many incredible dishes to try, but we’ve narrowed it down to few of our favourites. Chilaquiles is a delicious dish consisting of corn tortillas smothered in a mouth-watering mixture of delicious toppings, Huevos Divorciados - or Divorced Eggs - is a fried egg dish consisting of two starkly contrasting salsas, and Birria is a delicious meat stew that’s perfect for a filling evening meal.
