In Mexico, the cities are bustling and packed with culture, the wilderness is untouched and the beaches the rival of anywhere in the Americas. It’s a country where your can meander between luxury beach resorts and ancient Mayan ruins, cacti-strewn deserts, mountains and jungle.
There a few countries that come close to the wealth of experiences Mexico offers. For adventure, its terrain encompasses jungle, ice-topped volcanoes and arid desert, while thousands of kilometres of coastline – Pacific surf beaches to idyllic Caribbean retreats – cater to beach lovers.
Vast and sprawling and bursting with colour, Mexico City needs a few days to explore fully on a luxury tour. Look forward to exploring its European architecture and historic old quarter, world-class museums and fashionable shopping districts. All while sampling the culinary offerings of one of the world’s great street food cities!
The eastern Yucatan Peninsula where Mexico borders Guatemala, is an altogether different experience. For outdoor lovers, it’s paradise with jungle-covered Mayan temples to discover and bio reserves sheltering endemic wildlife from pumas prowling to pink flamingos. For beach lovers, it’s even better with long curving stretched of ivory-white sands shelving into clear Caribbean waters, lined with a selection of Mexico’s finest luxury resorts.
On the Pacific coast, Baja California’s beach resorts have provided glamour and stunning beaches to visitors since the 50s. But there is a lot more to the word’s second longest peninsula than 5-star resorts. Baja is untamed Mexico at its most seductive – a land of evocative deserts, huge sun-bleached canyons and remote mountain ranges, where the critically endangered Condor nests.
