There is a lot more to Mexico than just sombreros and tequila, holding the title of the biggest country in Central America, Mexico is both large in size and character.
Bordered to the north by America’s wilder states – California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas – and to the south by Guatemala and Belize, Mexico is steeped in history that dates from the time of the Mayan civilization, to Spain’s colonial rule. There are countless beaches along the coastline for you to explore – whether you want to surf, flop or watch wildlife – and the interior is dotted with ancient ruins, jungle, volcanoes, ceremonial sites and ageing haciendas.
Bursting with colourful colonial towns, white sand beaches, a mouth-watering cuisine, a thriving Indian culture, plunging canyons, baking deserts and ancient ruins lost in the jungle, Mexico is a country that has it all. This land of the Aztecs, Mayas, Olmecs and Toltecs is a country that repays repeated visits, and is a wonderful destination for families of all ages, as well as honeymooners and adventurers.
Mexico is colourful in every sense of the word. From the vivid emerald green jungle, multi-hued parrots and macaws fluttering above Mayan ruins and deeply turquoise lapping waters to the deliciously fragrant cuisine which has gladly infiltrated most countries in the northern hemisphere
