MEXICO HOLIDAYS

 

Mexico has consistently proven to be one of the most popular holiday destinations in the world and for many a good reason. With its exotic sandy beaches, blue waters and warm climate, extraordinary history and diverse landscapes, there is something for just about every kind of traveller in this vibrant and colourful country.

Spend a few days wandering round the ancient Mayan and Aztec pyramids and ruins, explore the deserts and swamps, marvel at the rainforests and discover a few of the 176 species of orchid along the way.

The beach resorts of the Acapulco, Puerto Vallarta, Cancun and Riviera Maya take some beating too, with fine all inclusive hotels suiting the whole family. The cities display wonderfully unique architecture with evidence of European colonial rule, while El Zócalo in Mexico City, the second largest city square in the world, is where it all happens and is the best place to experience some real Mexican flavour!

At Millington Travel, we have a number of staff who have explored Mexico, and some who have enjoyed it's beaches, so we are in a good position to offer you all the advice and information needed to plan your perfect trip.

7 nights all-inclusive from £737

  5. Palenque. Experience the Mayan civilisation at it's peak at this intoxicating eerie archaeological site cloaked in lush jungle and steeped in legend.
  6. Copper Canyon. Larger and deeper than the Grand Canyon. The best way to explore is on the ChePe train.
  7. Baja California. Great beaches and whale watching make this a top area to visit. The drive from Tijuana to Los Cabos is truly remarkable.
  8. El Zocalo. Mexico City's enormous square is a hive of activity with traditional dancing, buskers and vendors.The Presidential Palace dominates one side.
  9. Uxmal. Close to Chichen Itza, this beautiful site in the glorious Puuc Hills offers some stunning Mayan history including the rounded Pyramid of the Magician.
  10. Campeche is a colonial fairyland, its walled city centre is a tight enclave of perfectly narrow cobbled streets, ramparts and well-preserved mansions. 

 

When to go?

Mexico is either hot & dry or hot and wet, depending on where and when you visit. generally winters are a great time, with the driest weather from December to May. June onwards sees searing heat in the North, and higher rainfall and humidity in the south. If we had to choose a best time it would be January to April.

Food & Drink

Mexican food is famous worldwide, seen on all our supermarket shelves. The international favourites of Burritos, Nachos, Tortillas, Enchiladas, Fajitas, Chilli con carne and chimichangas are all very familiar and can be found on many menus in tourist areas. In local restaurants you'll find more authentic Mexican food such as Birria, Menudo and on most menus in Mexico, but there are many local flavours too. Corn and rice are common accompaniments, and all are flavoured with spices of varying degrees. Tequila is famous worldwide too, and you'll find plenty of it here, or stick to your favourite cocktails and Corona Extra beer in the beach resorts.
