Mexico Holidays

Vibrant culture, fascinating history and natural beauty

Holidays in Mexico combine ancient charm with modern pursuits. Mayan cities burst from lush jungles, and dazzling skyscrapers piece the sky. City boardwalks and piers reach out into turquoise waters, and aquatic life thrives in colourful reefs.

Mexico is a country alive with art, culture and history. Marvel at towering temples and immerse yourself in a world of warring Aztec gods. Those still in search of a culture fix can explore the art deco museums of Mexico City, venerating paintings, murals and ceramics. Adventurous wildlife lovers can strap on a snorkel, going in search of whale sharks and entrances to magical underwater caves. Those yearning for rest and relaxation will find comfort in the warm hospitality of the Mexican people, whiling away hours on picture perfect sandy shores.

Top Tips from our Experts

Martyn

Destination Manager

“Mexico’s Caribbean coast has dotted island gems along it. Board a ferry and head across to Isla Mujeres, Isla Holbox or Cozumel for a taste of authentic Mexico and a quieter pace of life either for a few nights or a day trip.”

Mel

Destination Specialist

“Keep your eyes peeled for Mole Poblano when you’re eating out. This rich red sauce has 20 ingredients packed within, including chilli and chocolate, perfect for seasoning chicken.”
