Mexico

Ancient sites & exquisite shores

Mexico tailor-made holidays

Introduction

Mexico is a truly diverse destination. From the stark, striking deserts and mountains of the north to the lapping shores of the Pacific and Caribbean coasts, Mexico will amaze you with distinctive natural, cultural and historical highlights.

Discover colonial charm in Mexico City, Oaxaca, and San Cristobal de las Casas and Mayan mysteries among the pyramids and ruins in Merida, Palenque and any number of other important archeological sites spread throughout the country.

Savour the tempting flavours of fiery Mexican cuisine on a culinary tour through the central heartland or escape to the beautiful Baja California Peninsula to soak up year-round sun and irresistible views over the Sea of Cortez.

The tempting Yucatan Peninsula is rich with ancient Mayan treasures - especially the enigmatic Chichen Itza - and blessed with the beautiful blonde-sand beaches and blue-eyed waters of the Riviera Maya, best enjoyed at any number of leading resorts.

When to go to Mexico

The climate of Mexico is mostly warm and tropical, with rainfall lower in the arid and semiarid regions further north. Temperatures are typically lower in the mountainous central spine than on the coast. Mexico's location in mid latitudes means that the seasonal cycles are not so pronounced as they are in temperate zones, although the Northern Hemisphere's summer is aligned to the Mexican rainy season, and with November to February comes a drier, cooler season. Peak holiday times come from July to August, and around the Christmas period.
