Luxury Holidays in Mexico

Mexico luxury holidays and honeymoons: we challenge you not to fall in love with them.

Mexico sizzles with energy from the madness of Mexico City to magnificent Mayan temples such as Chichen Itza in the Yucatan Peninsula (one of the New Seven Wonders of the World) - and also has some of the continent's best luxury hotels: think A-lister haunts such as Las Ventanas al Paraiso in Baja California through to exquisitely restored, charming Haciendas.

Travel in Mexico is also a visual treat with powdery white sand beaches along the gorgeous Mayan Riviera, bustling local markets, wedding cake churches, buildings painted in lurid colours that could only work in Mexico, vertigo inducing canyons and tropical forests. We're hooked.

Regions

Mayan Riviera Thumbnail

Mayan Riviera

The Mayan Riviera stretches along 75 miles of Mexico’s Caribbean coast and with beautiful warm sunshine, idyllic beaches and electric blue waters, the Mayan Riviera is the perfect place to kick back and relax. While you’re here, swim with turtles in Akumal, visit the famous Mayan ruins of Tulum and explore Rio Secreto, a fascinating labyrinth of underground passageways. Active visitors can give all manner of water sports a go, or head to Isla Mujeres for fantastic diving and snorkelling, where even whale sharks can be spotted.

Yucatan Peninsula Thumbnail

Yucatan Peninsula

The Yucatan Peninsula is home to Mexico’s most famous landmark, Chichen Itza, one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. A great base from which to visit Chichen Itza is the city of Merida, from where we would also strongly recommend visiting the simply spectacular Lol-Tun caves. Ancient Mayan paintings can still be seen on the walls of the remarkable underground lair, decorated with spectacular incredible stalactites and stalagmites. With electric blue waters and spectacular rock formations, the region’s many cenotes, or ‘sinkholes’, make for a truly unusual and memorable swim.

Oaxaca Thumbnail

Oaxaca

The charming colonial city of Oaxaca is dotted with picturesque cathedrals, multi-coloured houses and buzzing markets. The city is surrounded by a number of archaeological curiosities, including the fascinating ancient Zapotec site of Mitla, and be sure to visit the nearby traditional villages, where the culture, politics and even time zone are something different to Oaxaca. Rarely visited, but absolutely worth the trip, is Hierve el Agua, a striking set of natural white rock formations that resemble tumbling waterfalls. In the nearby fresh water springs, sit back and relax while gazing over the forested valley.

Whale thumb

Baja California

With vast deserts, dormant volcanoes and picturesque bays, many of Mexico’s most dramatic landscapes and seascapes can be found in Baja California. Hike the scenic tails into real cowboy territory, complete with cacti and sparsely populated desert, or head to the coast to try surfing, sailing or kayaking.  Nature-lovers should grab a snorkel and discover the amazing diversity of marine life in the Sea of Cortez, or even go dolphin or whale watching - Blue Whales, Humpbacks, Orcas and Sperm Whales all call this region home. Various archaeological sites can be toured in the rugged mountains, where cave paintings can also be seen.

Puebla Thumbnail

Puebla

The city of Puebla is set amongst volcanoes and snow-capped mountains. Its fantastic Zocalo shows off elegant colonial architecture and has been given UNESCO World Heritage status; its forts stand proud in the centre and its cathedral has two of the tallest church towers in Mexico. Explore the nearby National Park, La Malintzi, or head to the town of Chipilo, just 15 minutes from Puebla. Settled by Italian immigrants in the late 1800s, the Italian influence remains, with Venetian-style architecture and Italian restaurants and cafes lining the streets. Many locals still even speak the 19th century Venetian dialect.

Pacific Coast Thumbnail

Pacific Coast

The isolated bays of Mexico’s rugged Pacific coastline attract both those looking to take some time out under the warmth of the sun and surfers keen to catch a few ‘Mexican waves’. Nature-lovers will be keen to spot dolphins and humpback whales and there are also some fascinating mangrove-fringed lagoons and charming fishing villages to explore. Snorkel, surf, sail, scuba dive, or explore mountain cliffs by horseback or mountain bike – enjoy the Pacific coast how you will. Away from the crowds in the lively beach side city of Acapulco, find cliff side restaurants, botanical gardens and even a 17th-century fort.

Colima Thumb

Colima

The subtropical gardens and peaceful plazas set the tone for the sleepy city of Colima, which lies in the heart of a small and ecologically rich state of the same name. With turquoise lagoons towards the Pacific coast and active and steaming volcanoes in the north, including the dormant, snow-capped Volcán Nevado de Colima and the billowing Volcán de Fuego, the natural diversity of the region is spectacular. The jungles and canyons offer trekking, mountain biking and abseiling, and active visitors can reward their efforts with a dip in the crystalline streams or the picturesque El Salto Falls.

Chiapas Thumb

Chiapas

Home to the second-largest indigenous population in Mexico, Chiapas is rich in Mayan culture, colonial architecture and stunning natural beauty. Palenque, an ancient city hidden away in thick jungle, is one of Mexico’s finest examples of Mayan architecture, while the city of San Cristóbal is a colonial city of tremendous beauty. Wander its cobbled streets, explore its markets and make a trip to some of the surrounding traditional villages. Dotted with forest highlands, rainforest and jungles, which offer fantastic opportunities for outdoor activities, Chiapas gets a big, green tick for both culture and nature.

Mexico City Thumbnail

Mexico City

Lively, vibrant and borderline chaotic, Mexico’s buzzing capital moves at a hundred miles an hour, and there’s no better way to enjoy it than to hop on board and enjoy the ride. The Aztec ruin of Tenochitlan is in the centre of the sprawling metropolis and is a must for any visitor to Mexico City. Be sure to visit the vibrant Frida Kahlo Museum and the stark house of Leon Trotsky, where he lived in exile. If you’re looking for entertainment, head to Plaza Garibaldi-Mariachi to catch a mariachi band or even catch some Mexican wrestling, Lucha libre.

Copper Canyon Thumb

The Copper Canyon

The enormous Copper Canyon, in the state of Chihuahua, is a magnificent spectacle stretching for an incredible 900 miles. Deceivingly named, it is not just one canyon but six, and boats portions deeper than the Grand Canyon. Unwind in the traditional villages dotted around the area, visit the staggering waterfalls, the largest of which is the highest in Mexico, or relax in the tranquil hot springs, best reached by foot or on horseback. As well as wolves and cougars, the area is home to the fascinating Tarahumara people, who share ancestry with the Aztecs and whose way of life has barely changed in thousands of years. A world away from Mexico City and the party town of Cancun, this is the place to come to get away from it all.
