Mexico holidays combine the vibrant culture, fascinating history and exciting cuisine of Latin America with the pristine beaches, colourful wildlife and serene natural beauty typical of a Caribbean holiday.
Most holidays here start in Mexico City; the bustling capital city is well-worth a visit in its own right. Dine at fine-dining restaurants and street food carts alike, and explore the city’s rich history and fascinating architecture. There are also a host of rewarding day-trips and excursions available from the city – visit the ancient city of Teotihuacan and marvel at the incredible pyramids, or visit the Anthropology Museum and while away a few hours immersing yourself in the wonders of Mexico’s history.
For more Aztec history, head to Chichen Itza, on the Yucatán Peninsula – here you’ll discover a wealth of archaeological sites that offer an amazing insight into ancient civilisations. Mérida is full of stunning colonial architecture, while holidays to San Cristóbal and Palenque offer a great mix of scenic landscapes and cultural sites. Oaxaca has long been known as a cultural gem, and visitors here find a rich culinary scene alongside colourful landscapes and architectural delights.
Those looking for a beachside retreat won’t be disappointed in Mexico either. Cancun is famous for its glitzy nightlife, great selection of beachside bars and countless stretches of golden sand. The Mayan Riviera offers a Caribbean coastline, white sand beaches, a plethora of stylish resorts and plenty of culture.

Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula enjoys a tropical climate with warm temperatures all year round, however this is divided into two distinct seasons: wet and dry. December through to April tends to be the driest period to visit, and thus the most popular. September and October are the wettest and quietest months, although there is still plenty of sunshine.
