Mexico Vacations, Tours, Travel Packages & Experiences


  • Known as a popular spring break destination, Cancun is a must inclusion on your Mexico vacation
  • Tulum
  • San Cristobal
  • Oaxaca
  • Palenque's Mayan ruins are a great photo opportunity during your Mexico tour

Mexico is a tourist-oriented very diverse destination offering many excellent beach resorts, amazing archeological sites, colourful colonial cities, sophisticated metropolises and a natural beauty in its varied terrain, all to be enjoyed on a Mexico vacation. 

Some facts about Mexico are that it is the 14th largest country in area in the world, has 10,000 kilometres/6000 miles of coastline and ethnically made up of a mixture of Spanish and Indigenous peoples. Historically, it has grown from a melting pot of 300 years of many cultures including the Spanish Conquistadores and the advanced civilizations of the Mayan and Aztec Indians. 

Whatever reason one has to visit the country on a Mexico vacation package, it is well worth combining both pleasure and culture both provided in abundance here. If the prime reason for a visit is sea, sun and sand, one is spoiled for choice. On the Pacific Ocean Coast, there is an array of excellent and attractive resorts – Acapulco, a sophisticated and urban destination offering good nightlife and the remarkable high cliff sea divers, the smaller resorts of Mazatlan and Manzanillo plus the resorts of the Baja Peninsula with its dramatic sea and landscapes, remote deserts and dormant volcanoes including the popular Cabo San Lucas.  

On the Atlantic Coast, in the Yucatan Peninsula are also a number of excellent resorts such as Cancun and Playa del Carmen. An advantage to these would be to explore the Peninsula laden with archaeological treasures and Colonial cities. The resort of Cozumel offers clear blue waters with wonderful coral reefs perfect for scuba diving or snorkeling on a Mexico vacation. 

If the history of the Mayan civilization is an attraction, consider any of the following Mayan sites, Chichen Itza is the largest and most restored and visited site. Uxmal, near Merida, is well preserved and Tulum on the coast is a good choice from the above mentioned resorts. The city of Merida is the capital of the Yucatan and a good point from which to visit Uxmal. It is an attractive colonial and historical centre. 

The capital, Mexico City deserves several days to really make good use of the many attractions of North America’s largest city by population. The historic centre is a good starting point on Mexico vacations with the majestic Zocalo, the largest square in Latin America and the third largest in the world after Tien An Men Square, Beijing and Red Square, Moscow. Nearby is the Aztec Temple Mayor. The city boasts one of the largest parks in the world in the beautiful and lush Chapultepec Park, home to several museums and art galleries including the renowned National Museum of Anthropology with its amazing collection. It also houses a zoo, a castle and several lakes. In the near lying suburbs are atmospheric San Angel with its cobblestone streets, upscale restaurants and boutiques, Coyoacan, an arts district and previously home to artists, Frida Kahlo and Diego Riviera plus Leon Trotsky and Xochimilco known as the Mexican Venice with its canals.    

Just outside Mexico City is the Teotihuacan Mayan archaeological site with its Pyramid of the Sun and also Taxco, a very pretty town known for its silverware and jewellery. 

San Miguel de Allende is probably the most attractive colonial city in the country situated north of Mexico on the “Colonial Route". The narrow cobblestone streets, leafy courtyards and well preserved 17th and 18th century buildings make this pleasant city to spend time in. 

Puebla, south east of Mexico City is another colonial city worth visiting on a Mexico vacation. It is surrounded by volcanoes and snow-capped mountains and is known for its pottery and colourful ceramic tiles.

Guadalajara is a graceful city with a colonial downtown. It is the home of Mariachi music and Tequila. Oaxaca in the southern part of Mexico is a charming city full of culture with a rich and colourful history. Check out the indigenous market and the ruins of Monte Alban, a pre-Columbian archaeological site. As a contrast, on a Mexico vacation,consider a train journey through the wild and exotic Copper Canyon in the Sierra Madre Mountains (an extension of the Rocky Mountains in the US).
