Discover hidden beaches and stunning skies in Mexico
Table of contents
Find great last minute deals to Mexico and explore miles of unspoilt, sandy beaches and soak up the colourful culture.
The home of the Aztecs has a rich history stretching back centuries. Ancient civilisations lie virtually untouched ready to be explored. Mayan temples rise above tangled jungles and visitors can trek through the vegetation alongside beautiful, white sand beaches just like the first explorers. The most famous of these, Chichén Itzá, is easy to explore with a day trip from Cancun.
Music, food and native handicrafts also make up the rich tapestry of Mexican culture. Tuck into a quesadilla or some freshly caught fish while listening to the sounds of the country at a traditional cantina.
Across Mexico, there are scores of indigenous communities continuing decades of tradition. Pick up unique artisanal products and explore the stalls in one of the country’s best markets in Mexico City – but don’t forget to haggle for a good price!
One of the best and most unique ways to see Mexico’s stunning landscape is on the Ferrocarril Chihuahua Pacífico. One of the world’s best train journeys, it joins Chihuahua and the coast with a winding trail that takes a full day from end to end. If train travel doesn’t appeal, why not see the country from the air? Hot air balloon tours run above some of Mexico’s landmarks like the outstanding pyramids.
Soak up the sun and feel the sand between your toes on some of the world’s most gorgeous beaches. In lively Cancun, you can snorkel by day and enjoy the bustling nightlife by night. Dive into the coral reef off Akumal on Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula to spot turtles and swim with tropical fish and magical marine life. Mexico is a scuba diver’s playground with many shipwrecks and fantastic dive sites. For the more adventurous, discover Playa Del Amor. The “hidden beach” is on one of the Marieta Islands west of Puerto Vallarta and is a sight not to be missed.
