    Mexico map
    Mexico City
    Mexico City
    A constantly changing metropolis, cosmopolitan and vibrant Mexico City shows only a trace of the Aztec capital that it once was. Today it is one of the largest cities in the world and home to over 20 million people. Spend time in the Zocalo, the huge main square located in the historic centre surrounded by stunning displays of architecture, stop for a drink at a lively cantina or visit one of the many parks and museums.
    Baja California
    Baja California
    The southern end of the Baja California peninsula offers unique and exciting wildlife encounters and fascinating urban centres. The pretty and bohemian town of Todos Santos makes a pleasant stopover en route from cosmopolitan La Paz to the rugged coastline of Los Cabos. The beach resorts here stretch from lively Cabo San Lucas to the more sophisticated San José del Cabo.
    Copper Canyon
    Copper Canyon
    The Copper Canyon, part of the Sierra Madre Mountains, is one of the longest and deepest canyon systems in the world. It covers around 25,000 square miles and is four times larger the Grand Canyon. Enjoy dramatic views of jagged peaks and deep ravines on a historic and breathtaking rail journey that stretches for 300 miles across the mountains and bridges of this spectacular area.
    San Cristóbal de las Casas
    San Cristóbal de las Casas
    This picturesque colonial city is located in the Central Highlands and surrounded by pine forest, canyonlands and indigenous Tzotzil and Tzeltal villages that have retained their own unique languages and traditional customs. It offers a delightful blend of traditional cultures, stunning colonial architecture and cosmopolitan cafés, bars and restaurants.
    Riviera Maya
    The long white sandy beaches and warm turquoise waters of the Riviera Maya have long drawn people to Mexico’s Caribbean coast. Reaching from fun-loving Cancun in the north to laidback Tulum and the Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve in the south, this beautiful stretch of coastline offers excellent snorkelling and diving opportunities and easy access to the Mayan sites of Chichén Itzá and Tulum.
    Oaxaca
    Oaxaca
    Located in the south of Mexico and benefitting from a pleasant sub-tropical climate. Oaxaca is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is famous for its stunning architecture, culinary specialities and vibrant cultural traditions. The city’s main square is said to be one of the most beautiful in the whole of Mexico plus its easy-going vibe and love of fiesta make Oaxaca a ‘must see’ destination on any trip to Mexico.
    Mérida
    Mérida
    Built on the site of an ancient Mayan city, charming and cosmopolitan Mérida is the Yucatan’s cultural capital. Stroll through the historic centre which boasts restored colonial mansions, art galleries, renowned museums and numerous restaurants. Spend an evening sitting in the leafy Plaza Grande where live music can be heard almost every night.
    The Colonial Heartland
    The Colonial Heartland
    In the centre of Mexico, northeast of the capital, the former silver mining town of Guanajuato offers stunning baroque and neoclassical architecture and an interesting network of underground tunnels built into the steep hillside. Pretty and well preserved Pátzcuaro boasts a scenic lakeside location in the Michoacán highlands. Spend some time exploring the cobblestone alleyways and tree-lined streets of these colonial gems.
    Isla Holbox
    Isla Holbox
    The laidback island of Isla Holbox is located just off the coast of the Yucatan Peninsula and separated from the mainland by a narrow turquoise lagoon. There are few cars on the island and instead golf buggies and bikes traverse the sandy lanes passing local fisherman carrying the day’s catch. This colourful island is also home to pelicans and flamingos and from mid-May to mid- September whale sharks frequent the nearby waters.

    HOW TO GET AROUND MEXICO

    A private tour of Mexico offers the opportunity to travel in a comfortable private vehicle seeing the best of what this wonderful country has to offer, accompanied by friendly and knowledgeable guides. Alternatively a small group adventure tour is great option for those who like to travel and share their experiences with a small group, whilst enjoying the services of an experienced tour leader.

    Why not make your visit to Mexico part of a multi country holiday? Perhaps combine a tour of the Yucatán peninsula with Belize and Guatemala to discover spectacular Mayan ruins and pretty colonial cities. Alternatively, combine a trip to Mexico City or the Yucatán with a variety of cities in the USA.

    Cruise Mexico’s stunning Pacific coastline or visit Cozumel’s laidback beaches and mysterious Mayan ruins as part of a relaxing Caribbean cruise. Soak up the views from the comfort of your ship and enjoy a host of fantastic shore excursions.
