Discover the history of the Aztec and Mayan cultures and delicious gastronomy
With one of the world’s most ancient cultures that dates back millennia, to visit Mexico is to take a journey of discovery that starts in Pre-Columbian times with its Aztec and Mayan roots and culminates in the present day with stunning landscapes, vibrant culture and gastronomy that is world-renowned. Whether it’s a city break, beach holiday or something more adventurous that you’re after, Mexico excites and delights all who visit.
This colourful destination is a feast for the senses. Its vibrant capital, Mexico City, is often the first port of call for visitors with its internationally acclaimed art museums – follow in Frida Kahlo’s footsteps, restaurants and designer shops. Though the real treasures lie away from the main thoroughfares in shady courtyards and side streets.
No trip to Mexico is complete without touching on the country’s heritage with a trip to the perfectly preserved pyramids located around the country, the most famous of which is Teotihuacan – a short drive from Mexico City. But the country is also an ideal place to relax and unwind, with its palm-fringed coastline home to a host of hidden beaches, lagoons, not to mention Yucatan’s spectacular Ik Kil Cenote sinkhole which is a stone’s throw from the Chichen Itza Mayan ruins.
Each and every region offers something different – traditional dishes and artesenias, music and the all-important fiestas – with small colonial towns peppered between dusty, cactus-lined roads. The Chiapas and Oaxaca regions are particularly celebrated for their traditional festivals that bring the local culture to life. You’ll be hard pushed to find a warmer welcome anywhere else!
