Mexico Holidays

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.

    The tastes of Mexico are favoured around the world. Their passion for food; from picking the ingredients to cooking them with a range of spices, stands out in their dishes. Use your time in Mexico to experience the real taste of Mexico from the gastronomic delights of Mexico City's restaurants and street food, traditional cantinas or fine dining in a luxury five star resort.

  • Ancient Mayan History

    If you are keen to uncover the ancient Yucatan Mayan ruins, you’ll be well placed on Mexico’s glorious Mayan Riviera and Yucatan region. From here, you can reach the walled city of Tulum and the mystical Chichen Itza, one of the "New Seven Wonders of the World".

    Underwater Worlds

    Granted, on land there is an abundance of activities to do, however in Mexico there is just as much to do beneath the surface with a range of brightly coloured corals and marine life needing to be explored for the diving enthusiasts.
