Adventure awaits with Mexico holidays

To travel to Mexico is to travel to a land of adventure. It’s where ancient Mayan ruins and towering temples dominate the skyline, where beaches look more like clouds and jungles are crisscrossed with ziplines. It’s where your days can be as lazy as you like, with beachy siestas in the morning and wild fiestas in the night.

Holidays to Mexico are blessed with gorgeous round-the-clock weather, so there’s always a reason to get out. There are coral reefs to explore, ruins to marvel at, empanadas to devour and a whole lot of tequila to glug. Mexico holidays are also an excuse to do nothing at all – if you want to just lay out, soak up the beaming sunshine and embrace complete bliss, then that’s more than okay too.

Holidays in Mexico


Spectacular sights for your holidays to Mexico

Mexico holidays go hand in hand with beautiful beaches, but there’s certainly more to it than that. The stunning climate in both the summer and winter means you can holiday here all year round – whisk the kids away in the summer holidays or banish those winter blues just the two of you. From Cancun to Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Maya, the shores here are laden with soft white sands exuding exotic Caribbean vibes just waiting to be enjoyed.

Outdoor adventures in Mexico are set against the backdrop of jungles, rainforests, caves, mountains and ruins that define what it means to be ‘ancient’. A holiday in Mexico will have you returning all the wiser – and all the more bronzed.

There’s much to enjoy underwater too. On the island of Cozumel you can suit up in snorkelling gear and explore the world’s second largest coral reef and sunken statues alongside giant sea turtles. Boat cruises leave from Cancun and Riviera Maya, so even your travel time is a picturesque sightseeing expedition.

Things to do in Mexico: temples, ziplines and snorkelling

Mexico’s lush terrain begs you to unleash your inner adventurer, for holidays in Mexico have everything on offer. Zipline high above the treetops, dune buggy through the jungle or kayak along the coast – whatever makes you feel free.

Then there are the ancient ruins. Mexico is home to more World Heritage Sites than historical superpowers Greece and Egypt. Mexico is the cradle of the Mayan civilisation, whose 3,000 years of existence are still on display in the cities of Tulum, Coba and Chichen Itza. Who knew a holiday in Mexico would turn into an educational trip?

Chichen Itza is where you’ll find the Kukulkan Pyramid – you’ll recognise its flat top instantly – one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World. Tulum is located at the bottom of the Riviera Maya, and combines Mayan ruins with a scenic beach. That just means you’ve got a day of relaxation and culture all wrapped into one. You’ll learn so much on holiday in Mexico, without even trying!

Mexico holidays and tequila

Mexico holidays, tequila, fiestas – four words that belong together. The country is a hotspot for American spring-breakers in search of a wild night, and they certainly get what they came for. Many of the bars and restaurants around Mexico come to life with live music, mariachi crooners and salsa dancers – it’ll be a holiday to remember.

The tequila is free flowing in Cancun – Mexico’s party central. Here, you’ll find DJ-driven clubs and beach parties, along with some of the country’s most famous bars. Puerto Vallarta and Playa del Carmen are also top contenders for their nightlife scenes, though you won’t have trouble taking things slow if partying until sunrise doesn’t suit your holiday mood.

Playacar comes packed with adults-only accommodations, which means the evening agenda here revolves around chilled out entertainment and cool glasses of sangria. The nightlife on holiday in Mexico is certainly something to try, even if you stick to the laid back bars – you won’t have fully explored the real Mexico if you don’t. 

Fine dining

Take our word for it – holidays in Mexico are worth it for the food alone. With succulent grilled meats spiced to perfection, there’s nothing quite like dining in this corner of the world.

The streets of Mexico are paved with everything from vendors filling the air with the scent of freshly cooked tamales, to locals flattening tortillas and baking them on stovetops right before your eyes. You’ll also find a healthy dose of home in the form of international eats – from takeaway options to romantic nights on outdoor terraces, Mexico is a versatile destination where everyone is happy.

Mexico retail heaven

Holidays in Mexico may be all about the spectacular sights, tastes and smells but there’s always time for a spot of shopping! From high-end boutiques to traditional market stalls, Mexico shopping opportunities come in every shade on the retail spectrum. 

At the centre of Playa del Carmen, you’ll be entertained by street performers and musicians whilst you’re browsing souvenir stalls for colourful ponchos and Cuban cigars. 

Most towns have flea markets of their own, where you’ll find handmade jewellery and handbags which make perfect gifts for loved ones back home.

Cancun, Puerto Vallarta and Playacar are where the ritzy goods await. Designer brands and high-end boutiques pave the way along some of these streets, along with Playa del Carmen’s 5th Avenue. Whether you make a purchase or not, it’s certainly a sight to see.
