Mexico

Mexico attracts upwards of 22 million visitors a year – hardly surprising if you consider the country’s incredibly varied scenery, rich history and culture, balmy climate, good food and great tequila.

Spanning almost two million square kilometres, Mexico’s landscapes range from steamy jungle in the south, to cactus-filled desert in the north. The country includes thousands of kilometres of both Pacific and Caribbean coastline, and is surrounded by some of the world’s most stunning coral reefs. Mexico also includes the dramatic Sierra Madre mountain ranges and the snow-topped volcanoes of the Sierra Nevada.

Mexico’s beaches

Mexico’s Playa del Carmen, along with the beaches of Cancún and Cozumel, figure high among the world’s most popular beaches, with white sand, clear blue waters and plenty of colourful marine life, as well as world-class resorts and exciting nightlife.

Mexico is also home to Acapulco, immortalised in song and made famous as a playground for the rich and famous by the likes of Elvis Presley and Frank Sinatra.

For a quieter experience, Mexico includes many beautiful beaches outside the major tourist hotspots. Try the beaches of small Holbox Island just off the Yucatan Peninsula, the magnificent white-sand beaches surrounding the bay at Bahia Concepción or the pristine beach at Xcalak, near the border with Belize and surrounded by the Great Maya Reef.

Mexico’s incredible history

Mexico boasts more UNESCO World Heritage sites than any other country in the Americas. It’s home to some of the most inspiring and well-preserved Mesoamerican architecture, including elaborately decorated Mayan temples and the world’s largest Mayan pyramids, at Teotihuacán.

Across Mexico, you’ll also find beautiful examples of Spanish colonial architecture, from charming town plazas to graceful haciendas and magnificent cathedrals.

Mexico is also known for its thriving arts and cultural scene. Did you know that Mexico City has the highest number of museums in the world? Among those not to miss are the impressive Palacio de Bellas Artes, or Place of Fine Arts, alongside the Alameda Central Park and the National History of Anthropology, which includes an amazing collection of artefacts from both pre-Columbian and Hispanic times.
