Mexico Holidays - Mesmerising land of colour and contrasts

Mexico is a fascinating land of contrasts, famed for its idyllic white sand palm-fringed beaches overlooking the Caribbean’s turquoise waters. Yet beyond its well-known coastal resorts lies an incredible and tantalising world of colour and spice waiting to be discovered.

Home to a rich cultural mix of indigenous people, ancient civilisations and unique wildlife, Mexico is a country that’s definitely worth exploring intrepidly beyond its idyllic coast. A vivid riot of music, festivals, unique cuisine and Mexican bonhomie accompanies you wherever you travel.

Mexico City may be one of the world’s largest cities but it also has some astonishing history, such as its ancient Aztec temples and waterways, some of which are still in evidence today. It boasts a stunning main square that houses a mix of colonial architecture with flourishes of modern art, as well as one of the world’s most fascinating anthropological museums, perfect for exploring on your luxury holiday to Mexico. Surrounding the city is a host of beautiful, small colonial treasures known as the Silver Cities, as well as butterfly-filled mountain valleys and dramatic volcanic peaks, in the shadow of which were built spectacular pre-Aztec cities and pyramids.

Heading northwards on your Mexico luxury holiday brings you to one of the deepest canyons in the world (deeper even than the Grand Canyon and more verdant), as well as to the Baja California peninsula, where whales come to calve during the winter months and once described as the ‘world’s aquarium’ by Jacques Cousteau. Southwards leads you deep into the world of the Maya, whose once vast cities are still in evidence, and whose language and customs influence local villages and communities to this day. Mexico’s central highlands give way to dense rainforest, which eventually leads to the popular Riviera Maya coast, where remote, untouched stretches of beach and little known offshore islands can still be found.

We love and know Mexico inside-out, so would be delighted to help you plan a truly tailormade, unique luxury holiday to Mexico to explore this intoxicating land – whether it’s a family kayaking or hiking adventure on the Pacific, discovering the artworks of some of Mexico’s finest contemporary artists, or exploring pre-Aztec and Mayan ruins hidden amongst the jungle canopy that very few ever get to experience on a luxury Mayan holiday. Mexico has some wonderful secrets and hidden corners to reveal, and we can help you explore its treasures using the very best and friendliest guides.

We would love to hear from you. To find out more about tailormade luxury Mexico holidays, or to obtain inspiration for a holiday, please contact us by phone or e-mail, or complete our online enquiry form.
