5 reasons to travel to Mexico

Mexico is a bucket list destination. It's an attractive country where there's something for everyone.

The heart of Maya culture

From Teotihuacan near Mexico City, to Palenque's rainforest, not forgetting the impressive Chichén Itzá and Tulum, Mexico is awash with amazingly well-preserved Mayan ruins. For this reason alone Mexico is worth a visit. A wonderful, vibrant history 

Stunning colonial towns

San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, Puebla, Oaxaca, San Cristobal de las Casas, Campeche, Merida - the list is infinite. Each one as pretty as the next, they all have unique characters and stories to tell.

Some of the best beaches in the world

Cancun and Acapulco may be the best known tourist hubs, but you'll find plenty of other beautiful resorts along both the Pacific and Caribbean coasts. With fewer tourists, a 'Mexican' feel and cheaper prices than gringo hotspots, it's worth checking out places where mass tourism has not yet got a grip.

Mexican food

Do you remember your New Year's resolution? The one that involves healthy eating and weight loss? Well, you can throw that one out the window as soon as you start your trip to Mexico. The food here is famously delicious. Tacos, enchiladas, quesadillas, chilaquiles - you must try them all.

Mexico City, a culturally rich melting pot

Mexico City is a giant, expanding, all-consuming, multi-cultural hub...it's hard to put this city into words. Apart from being huge, Mexico City is also highly entertaining and you'll never get bored. From the Zocalo to quieter plazas, cathedrals, churches, colonial facades, museums...it's a capital packed full of interesting places to see.
