Mexico Holidays

Combine the sparkling seas of the Caribbean with the Mexican architecture and sensational food! Head off the beaten path and visit the ancient ruins, or head to the East Coast and soak up the sunshine at an all inclusive hotel. With almost year round sun this is an ideal Caribbean break. 

Stretching from North America to Guatemala this diverse country has a lot to offer. With deserts in the north and Jungles in the south there's a never ending Myan culture to explore. Indulge in luxury on the Caribbean coast or head into central Mexico to experience the Latin fiestas! 

When you're thinking about a Mexico Holiday, do you picture the crystal clear Caribbean seas? The ruins? The jungle? Let us know and we can plan your perfect Mexico break. 

If you want that idyllic Caribbean break but need to keep an eye on your budget, Mexico is your perfect solution. A holiday to Mexico is the affordable luxury of a Caribbean. 

It’s really important to think about the time of year when you're planning your Mexico break. How about a Christmas break to Mexico? This is the classic dry season which runs from December to April. Outside of these times can still be beautiful. Be careful of hurricane season, which is July-October with September often being the wettest. Saying this you can often get a bargain break if you're happy with a few rainy  days! 

Seaweed can often be a problem in June and July, the large build up of Sargassum (seaweed) ends up on the beaches, the hotels work hard to keep them clear but there can sometimes be a build up. 

Mexico is famous for its food and tequila! Make sure you order a glass with dinner, the locals treat it more as an aperitif, a sipping drink after dinner. Try some of the local suppliers and you'll see why! 

The food will be full of flavour with fresh and fragrant flavours. If spice isn't your thing, don't worry! As your server for their recommendations and they'll guide toward the dishes bursting with complex flavours but lower on spice! 


Cancun on the Yucatan Peninsula runs alongside the caribbean sea. It’s known for beaches, nightlife and multiple resorts. 

If you're looking for a beach break within access of the town then Cancun is perfect for you. You'll have access to shops, restaurants and nightlife while also having the option of relaxing in your resort. The town is known to students for spring break and can get busy. Make sure you book a night at Cocobongos, a night you won't forget! It's like cirque du soleil in a nightclub! 

Riviera Maya

Riviera Maya is the honeymoon section of the Mexican coastline. Know for its all inclusive resorts and white sand beaches. Playa del Carman has long sandy beaches with access to Cozumel, Mexico's own caribbean island! In the South, Tulum has more mayan influences and yoga retreats. The warm waters in this section of the Caribbean coast is the perfect spot for turtle hatcheries, if you're lucky you can swim with them straight off the beach outside your resort. 

Twin Centre Holidays with Mexico

Mexico is the American easy to reach Caribbean break, which means that there are lots of easy combinations for a multi centre holiday! Whether you want to explore the Big Apple or celeb spot in LA there's no reason to not add a breach break on your USA trip! 

How about a New York and Mexico holiday? The flight from New York to Cancun takes only 4 hours, you can leave the hustle and bustle of New York in the morning and be sipping on a Margarita at the pool bar by the afternoon. 

For families, an Orlando and Mexico twin centre holiday makes a great combination. You can have the fun of Disneyland, combined with an all inclusive treat! The kids will be kept busy with the clubs and entertainment. 

Mexico Family Holidays

Traditional family holidays to Mexico head to the Caribbean coastline. This is the perfect playground for adults and children. 

Many hotels in the along the coast line area offer kids clubs, babysitting facilities and poolside entertainment to keep everyone busy. Don't worry! The Adults won't be left out! From cooking classes to spanish lessons or simply relaxinging with a cocktail by the pool. The huge stretch of coast line overlooks the turquoise waters of the Caribbean sea, there's everything to enjoy, from the party playground in Playa Del Carmen to the turtle nests in the quieter Akumal. The Riviera Maya runs alongside this to offer you a tropical playground of Mayan Ruins. 

If you need to get out of the resort there are adventure parks, with zip lines, quad bikes, and water activities. If you get a chance a personal favourite is the Cenotes! You'll get to experience where the ocean meets the river waters, due to the salt content they sit on top of each other and you can see the difference! Experience all sorts of fish and aquatic life. 

The summer holidays (June - September) arnt the best for Mexico but this beautiful destination makes and amazing Easter or Christmas break. With the Direct flight you can be there in under 11 hours, sit back and enjoy a week (or more) on the beach! 

Mexico Budget Holidays

When you're thinking about a budget holiday don't rule out Mexico! There's an all inclusive option in almost every hotel, this means you can put away your wallet and enjoy your days! Let the kids run wild and help themselves to that afternoon ice cream. 

There are some amazing high end hotels in Mexico, The Hard Rock Hotel and the Secrets Resorts all offer the perfect Adults only break, but these come with a price tag. If you're on a budget don't be worried. Many hotels have dedicated children zones and adult only pools so you can still live in luxury. We would highly recommend going for an all inclusive price, not only does this mean you can leave your wallet in the room but you really do get value for money! It's quite a nice change of pace when you've paid for everything before you even get there! No bills to take you by surprise.
