Mexico’s tourism industry is growing year on year, and it’s easy to see why. With beautiful beaches, a brilliantly diverse ecosystem and some of the most incredible ancient sites in the world, there’s a lot to keep you occupied. Find out the top reasons why you should make Mexico your next holiday destination:
From the ancient city of Palenque to the world-famous Chicen Itza, Mexico is steeped in a rich history of ancient civilisations. You can also head to Tulum, one of the last Mayan cities built, which sits on the idyllic coastline of the Yucatán Peninsula, also home to some stunning resorts that’ll leave you within walking distance of this Mayan marvel.
When it comes to beaches, Mexico has plenty to spare. Playa del Carmen offers plenty of spots when it comes to topping up your tan; once a remote fishing village, it’s now a paradise for those seeking sun and sand with a Mexican twist.
Cancun also boasts its fair share of beaches, and is home to multiple resorts that are mere steps away from the golden sands.
Our love for Mexican food has grown exponentially in recent years, with many high street restaurants serving up Mexican dishes. However, nothing beats eating with the locals. Tuck into authentic dishes like guacamole, tacos and chilaquiles (a typical breakfast dish containing fried tortillas topped with salsa and mole).
Mexico enjoys a vibrant culture with spiritual festivals such as the Day of the Dead, a 3000 year old tradition to the celebrate the memory of those who have passed, taking place every year. Day of the Dead is commemorated with vibrant costumes and colourful sugar skulls lining the candlelit streets across the country.
With some of the world’s most beautiful vistas at its disposal, it must come as no surprise that Mexico is the perfect place for a spa holiday. For the ultimate in pampering, head to Cancun where many of the resorts boast their own luxurious spa facilities.
