Glimmering turquoise waters, glistening white sand beaches and long, lazy days in the sun. If this sounds like your cup of tea, why not make Mexico your next holiday destination? Mexico offers the best of both worlds. Placid, relaxing resorts for escaping with a partner and high-adrenaline hotels to paint the town red with a group of friends. If you’re thinking of embarking on a Mexican adventure, here are some of the hottest spots you may wish to consider.
Located on the Caribbean Coast, Tulum offers a fascinating insight into ancient Mexican civilisations. Steeped in Mayan ruins and boasting some of the best scuba diving around, this is a perfect base for combining culture and relaxation. Tulum is a busy resort, but it lacks the frenetic pace of Cancun and Tijuana, making it a popular choice for families and older travellers. You can make use of a host of amenities and see the attractions without being overwhelmed by crowds of tourists. Choose from boutique accommodation with direct access to the beach or larger all-inclusive resorts.
Cancun is a serial winner in the tourism stakes and it suits holidaymakers of all ages. The large all-inclusive hotels offer hassle-free holidays for families. Private beaches are also a safe haven for younger swimmers. Young couples and groups of friends will love the proximity of the infamous strip. Here you’ll find a multitude of bars, restaurants and clubs, which stay open until the early hours. Holidays to Cancun can be as relaxed or active as you want. Spend your days water skiing, snorkelling or sailing or chill out on a sun lounger. Popular excursions include swimming with dolphins and a day trip to the ancient Mayan city of Chichen Itza.
Playa del Carmen
Situated on the Yucatan Peninsula, Playa del Carmen is a chic beach resort. If you’re thinking of boat trips, sunset cocktails and private dining experiences, this could be the perfect choice for you. A popular honeymoon spot, Playa del Carmen is also a great destination for a classy hen weekend or a landmark birthday celebration. There are exclusive beach clubs aplenty and an abundance of sophisticated European-style boutiques. The reefs are bursting with vibrantly coloured fish and sea turtles, so don’t forget your snorkel.
Cabo San Lucas
An annual hot spot for spring-breakers, Cabo is the place to let your hair down. The scenery is spectacular and there’s an energetic, free-spirited vibe. Spend your days soaking up the rays before hitting the beachfront bars and dancing the night away. If you’re up for late nights and lazy days, but you’re keen to avoid peak times, it’s best to travel in late May or June.
Mexico is a fantastic holiday destination for all kinds of tourists and travellers. Discover the rich history and embrace the intriguing culture. Feel the sun on your skin and enjoy the warm, clear waters. Have fun with your friends or experience the ultimate romantic retreat. You’re guaranteed to have an incredible holiday, whichever resort you choose.
