Mexico is a big country with a variety of landscapes, climates and traditions to match. The deserts, mountains and jungles have been the stage for a turbulent history. Flick your way through the pages of its story on the ground and you find the vestiges of the Aztec and Mayan empires, with magnificent ruined pyramids and temples on well-ordered archaeological sites, and graceful colonial towns and haciendas, while a timeless indigenous life continues in the villages and markets.

The countryside is stunning too: there’s a spine of rippling barren mountains, studded with armies of cacti, while much of the coastline is enveloped in dripping rainforest. All this is fringed by sugary beaches and aquamarine seas.

But Mexico is a modern country with a robust emerging economy. Its huge capital is one of the world’s greatest cities, and there’s an efficient road and air network linking Mexico’s major attractions.

What our experts say

You definitely can't do justice to Mexico in one visit. Where you go (first) will depend on your interests: history and archaeology, jungle wildlife; active sports, Caribbean beaches... I suggest combining Mexico City with the colonial cities of the heartland and the Pacific coast for a beach relax. Another trip takes you to the Mayan ruins of the Yucatán Peninsula and the colonial haciendas; a third on an active holiday to Copper Canyon and Baja California.
