Luxury holidays in Mexico

Destinations in Mexico

  • Starkly beautiful desert scenery, glamorous beach resorts and oceans known as ‘the world’s aquarium’ – just a few reasons this magnificent Mexican state is perennially popular.
  • A long-standing favourite with international high-flyers, Cuernavaca has plenty of history as a go-to Mexican getaway.
  • Skewered by the stunning Sierra Madre and edged by the warm waters of the Pacific, Jalisco is often said to be the most Mexican of Mexican states, and, since it gave the world tequila, mariachi, and rodeos, it’s not hard to see why.
  • Mexico City, erstwhile heart of the vast Aztec empire, once stood in the middle of a lake. These days the water is gone, replaced by a churning sea of humanity – with more than 19 million inhabitants, the city is one of the largest and most dynamic on earth.
  • It’s hippy-go-lucky along Nayarit’s 200-mile stretch of Pacific coastline where a rabble of picturesque towns, bountiful beaches and an abundant supply of aguachile embody the spirit of endless summer.
  • Cresting the Pacific, Mexico’s culinary capital Oaxaca is a picturesque patchwork of sacred ancient sites, bohemian villages, surf-happy beaches and a whole lot of flavour.
  • Snow-capped mountains and smoking volcanoes surround the Valley of Puebla, which cradles this proud and peaceful city. Slower-paced than its frenetic neighbour, Mexico City, the old colonial town blends beautiful baroque architecture with a well-rooted sense of tradition.
  • More peaceful than nearby Tulum or Playa del Carmen, Punta Maroma is a romantic flop-and-drop destination renowned for its beaches’ tropical beauty and impressively biodiverse reef.
  • With its well-preserved colonial architecture and vibrant food and arts culture, this Unesco World Heritage city has turned more than a few visitors into expats…
  • San Pancho (AKA San Francisco) is a super-chill beach town, formerly a sleepy fishing pueblo, on the spectacular Nayarit Riviera. At its Pacific edge are green-flocked cliffs and the golden sands of its wild beaches.
  • Tepoztlán has a pueblo mágico designation for its breathtaking mountain scenery, 6,000-feet-above-sea-level temple El Tepozteco (dedicated to the god of locally loved drink pulque) and its legendary status as the birthplace of top Aztec god Quetzlcoatl.
  • Lush green hills, cobbled streets and yachts bobbing on a cerulean lake – it’s little wonder that Valle de Bravo is a favourite among Mexico City’s elite.
  • Palm-lined beaches, jungle-covered hills and the deep turquoise Pacific – Andy and Red were onto something when they picked Zihuatanejo as their post-Shawshank paradise.
