Mexico Holidays

Vibrant culture, fascinating history and natural beauty

Mexico is a vast and fascinating country. From the stunning white sand beaches of the Riviera Maya to the hustle and bustle of Mexico City – why stay in just one place when you go on your Mexican adventure? Discover stunning landscapes in the Yucatan Peninsula with peaceful cenotes, ancient Mayan ruins and rich green jungle. Educate yourself on the Mayan civilisation and the legacy they left behind by visiting Chichen Itza, a New Wonder of the World, Tulum and Coba, or enjoy late nights and pure white sand beaches in Cancun and the Riviera Maya. With great connections to the USA, you can head to chic and exclusive Los Cabos with a stop in glamorous Los Angeles for a truly unique experience; from LA’s bright lights and shopping to Los Cabos’ tranquil beaches, whale watching encounters and luxury resorts.

With its historic architecture, stunning landscapes, party atmosphere and warm hospitality, Mexico ticks every box and bursts with flavour.

Top Tips from our Experts

Martyn

Destination Executive

“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.”

Melody

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.”

Jas

“Join our Dreams Yucatan tour, you can see Mayan history, true Mexican culture, and a side to the country that you don’t get to see in the resorts.”
