Mexico – An all-time favourite and our number one long haul destination. Mexico has everything to offer, history, world class diving sites and 5 star à la carte boutique hotels. Thomson Airways fly the Dreamliner to Cancun on selected flights and to Puerto Vallarta on the Pacific coast. We are sure you’ll find a sun bathing spot on Cancun’s 22 kilometre beach.  The wettest month tends to be September whereas the sunniest months are March and April. March time is really with busy especially with Spring Breakers seeking the vibrant nightlife.  We recommend you check out Chichén Itzá or take some time to chill at Isla Mujeres, a short boat ride to paradise from Cancun. Our top selling hotels are Riu Palace Peninsula and Sensatori Mexico.
