If you’d rather your holidays in Mexico had a touch of class, head straight to Playa del Carmen, the Yucatan Peninsula’s most glamourous city. Bustling with travellers looking for a dose of Mexican culture, it boasts a myriad of chic hotels and coastal resorts with spectacular views of the Caribbean.
Despite being famed for its sun-soaked beaches, Mexico’s natural vistas and stunning landscapes extend far inland, culminating in the dense, verdant jungles of the south, expansive deserts of the north and scattered lagoons, replete with the wildest of wildlife.
To really get to grips with the local culture on your holidays to Mexico, delving into its historical legacy is vital. Luckily, the country is crammed with monuments and landmarks, most prominently the elaborate ancient Maya temples and imposing Teotihuacan pyramids. The dusty colonial towns previously ruled by Spain offer beautiful plazas and shady pueblos, while the array of galleries and museums from the Federal District to Campeche marry all the innovation of the country’s contemporary muses with the colourful influences of its former character.
Of course, Mexico holidays are incomplete without sampling the delicious cuisine of this vibrant region. Diverse as it is tasty, you’ll find a delicious combination of flavours at every corner – from traditional Mexican restaurants to mouth-watering street food. Help yourself to delicious Pozole, a delicious national dish made from succulent chicken and pork or experience tacos al pastor in Mexico City.
For a unique experience, take a tequila tasting tour in Jalisco, partake in the vivacious Day of the Dead festival in Mexico City, or just sit back and relax on the beaches of Acapulco with a Margarita. If you take time to explore the true nature of this beautiful country on your holidays in Mexico, it will willingly yield its secrets, one by one.
