A trip to Mexico is the chance to carry out several journeys in one, such is the country's cultural, geographic and climatic heritage so diverse and so extensive!
The vast territory is home to landscapes as spectacular as they are varied from the depths of Canyon del Sumidero to the tropical forest of Chiapas and from the snow-capped peaks of the Popocatépetl to the crystal-clear lagoons of Isla Holbox.
The same diversity is reflected in its heritage, which combines Indian with Spanish influences. The Yucatán peninsula is a premium destination with its fabulous Pre-Columbian vestiges at Chichén Itzá and Uxmal, head spinning and immense at Tulum and Cobá, which are touchingly human. Less well-known, Colonial Mexico is both endearing and impressive at Pátzcuaro, Guanajuato and Oaxaca.
Yet another Mexico awaits you on the Pacific seaboard, where the mythical Acapulco remains awe-inspiring. However, we prefer the beaches of the Yucatan and the turquoise water of Cancún's busy Playa del Carmen without forgetting the amazing underwater life off the island of Cozumel.
To whet your appetite for this voyage of discovery, keep your eyes peeled when you touch down in sprawling and spectacular Mexico City.
