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 around 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!
