Corie’s Dream Destination: Mexico
Even though Corie, our Digital Marketing Executive, has been to Mexico three times, it still remains her very favourite long haul destination. She loves the vibrant culture, the picture-perfect beaches and of course, the amazing food. You get the best of both worlds in Mexico. One day you could zipline through a luscious, green jungle and the next get tipsy at a swim-up bar!
Corie said: “I don’t think I’d ever tire of going to Mexico! It’s one of our most popular destinations, and rightly so. There’s so much to do and the beaches are out of this world. I’ve visited Cancun and Riviera Maya and both are absolutely amazing. I went to Mexico not long before the pandemic and I’m already making plans to go back next year!”
