Mexico's consistently warm temperatures make it the perfect place to visit all year round. Located in the Southern half of North America means that the average temperatures reach the balmy mid to late 20s. Our favourite time to go is from April to June where the skies are the bluest and there aren't so many tourists. It is the perfect destination to combine vibrant culture and natural paradise.
Best places to visit
Mexico's favourite holiday spot. With a number of things to do day and night from soaking up the rays to partying the night away, the fun is endless. Cancun offers 14 miles of golden-sand beaches - perfect for relaxing and sipping on a pina colada, here you can swim with some of the marine life in the sparkling tropical waters and discover some of the most spectacular coral reefs. Beyond the beach, discover Cancun's eco-tourism at the Nichupte lagoon. This is the perfect place for cycling or walking alongside the lagoon with the chance to spot some of the resident crocodiles in their natural habitat.
The perfect destination to combine your slice of paradise with some cultural heritage. This beautiful coastline provides one of the world's top locations for snorkelling and scuba diving. If you're more of the daring type then cave diving and swimming in the fresh waters of the underground sinkholes is a must. Riviera Maya offers are rich historical background, here you can visit the ancient Mayan ruins at Tulum. If you head just off the beaten track, you'll stumble upon some traditional Mayan village where you're able to try out the local cuisine to get a real sense of the Mexican culture.
