Captivating Caribbean Coastlines

Captivating Caribbean Coastlines

Mexico's Caribbean coastline is a beacon for British holidayers. With powder-soft sands and warm oceans ripe for water sports, there’s plenty to do. Try your hand at kayaking, jet-skiing, or sailing. Take a catamaran cruise through the crystal-clear waters, or dive beneath them and see spectacular reefs.

Jungle Treasures

Jungle Treasures

Away from the shores, deep in the dense Mexican jungles hide hundreds of mysterious archaeological sites for culture buffs to explore. The ruined cities of Teotihuacan and Chichen Itza are musts when visiting this country. Visit the heart of the Aztec and Mayan empires, admire soaring pyramids and glide past floating gardens at Xochimilco or float in the subterranean Mayan cenotes and feel connected to ancient gods. Mexico’s history is everywhere.

food and drink

Food & Drink

Mexican cuisine is famously spicy and delicious – and, of course, it tastes better in its home country than it does anywhere else in the world. From chilaquiles and enchiladas to tacos and burritos, there’s a host of finger-licking flavours in Mexico. Wash your delicious dishes down with a smoky Mezcal. A rich elixir hand-roasted under volcanic rocks, this is the more distinguished older sibling of fast-living, party-hard tequila.  
If Mexican dishes aren’t your favourite, don’t worry. Most hotels offer a good choice of buffet and international restaurants, serving up cuisine from as far afield as Italy and Japan. In Cancun, you'll find a huge choice of places to eat out, from stylish restaurants to fast food joints. Sip ice-cold cocktails on the beach – and don't forget to try the tequila.
