Luxury Mexico Holidays

Beautiful coastlines and cultural discoveries


Holidays in Mexico offer something for everyone - fascinating ancient ruins, tropical forests, exquisite diving sites and some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Explore the pyramids at Chichen Itza; visit the sea turtle sanctuary in Cancun or simply unwind by the ocean with a margarita in hand. 

Mexico is a diverse holiday destination. Head to the picture-perfect Riviera Cancun, where you’ll be taken aback by its beautiful coastline, complete with palm trees and chic beachfront hotels. Perfectly located, Riviera Cancun is a short distance from the lively town of Cancun, which is home to swanky bars, restaurants and shopping malls.  

Alternatively, head to Riviera Maya, where you’ll find 30 kilometres of pristine white sand and the world’s second largest coral reef. If you’re looking to relax, visit the peaceful town of Tulum, or head to the Xcaret eco park to indulge in family fun such as river tubing, zip lining and snorkelling.

Flight Information

Flight time from the UK to Mexico's Caribbean coast is around 11 hours.

When to go

Mexico is a year-round beach destination, with temperatures rarely dipping below 20°C – even in winter. The summer months are at their hottest between May and September, which have average temperatures of 28°C. While short rain showers are possible, they are helpful in taking the edge off the heat.

Visa Information

UK citizens travelling to Mexico do not currently require a visa. You will need to fill out a tourist card, which you will be provided with on arrival.


Mexico has a tipping etiquette similar to the USA. Service employees typically receive little or no base salary, so tips make up the bulk of their salary. Try to tip about 15% of the bill in restaurants and bars unless the bill includes propina (gratuity). Taxi drivers do not usually get tipped unless they have provided an extra service like loading or unloading your bags.

Introduction to languages

The official language of Mexico is Spanish. English is widely spoken too, so getting by is easy.


No vaccines are required or recommended for travel to Mexico, however all routine immunisations should be up to date. For full details, please contact your GP.
