Mexico

P1110120

With stunning blue skies, powdery white sand beaches and the crystal clear warm waters of the Caribbean Sea are just the beginning of your Mexican holiday. Mexico is a vibrant and colourful country, from the paper mâché skeletons of the famous Day of the Dead celebrations to the souvenir sombreros and tequila laced cocktails.

With world-class beachfront resorts, magnificent jungles, ancient temples there is really is plenty for eveyone.

Many of the hotels are located on the Caribbean coast of the beautiful Riviera Maya, home to some of the most beautiful beaches with their soft wine sand and rich coral beds in Mexico therefore you probably wont want to venture too far from your sunbed but its worth it for the amazing watersports on offer such as windsurfing, snorkelling and scuba diving.  The Mesoamerican Barrier Reef is the second largest in the world and is teaming with brightly coloured fish or maybe swim in underground cenotes.

Golf lovers will be in heaven on courses designed by the likes of Jack Nicklaus and Greg Norman.

The ancient Mayan ruins are also a fascinating draw. As the sun beats down on Chichén Itzá take a tour of the central pyramid and clap your hands at the base to hear the resounding echo of the legendary Quetzal call in return.
