Posada de las Flores La Paz
Posada del la Plores is a small hotel defined by authentic Mexican style and artifacts, right on the seafront in La Paz, Baja California.
This intimate and most attractive ochre-washed property is situated on the La Paz's coastal promenade, the Malecón, close to the centre of the capital of Baja California. Refurbished and refreshed in 2016, it's one of the most genuinely Mexican properties in town: the sofa-crammed lounge and handful of guest rooms and suites are tastefully furnished with Mexican artwork and rich locally woven textiles. Each guest room has an individual iconic feature, such as antique wooden furniture, Mexican pottery, a marbled wall or a palm tree growing through the ceiling.
The hotel’s second floor restaurant, overlooking the promenade, has unparalleled views over the ocean. Potted plants are liberally scattered over the grounds of property which features a stone fountain while other facilities include a sun deck with loungers and a patio where breakfast is served.

Visiting the Mayan villages outside San Christobal de las Casas.CM, Kingston upon thames
Highlight?: Calakmul, its a long journey to get there ( 2 hours from Xpujil alone ) so plenty of anticipation, not busy and complete freedom to walk around as opposed to other sites. Did actually see some monkeys in the trees too.DB, Teddington

Highlights?: Tours of Mexico City & Chichen Itza, followed by our stay at Tulum.ER, Surbiton
My sister summed it up by saying that there was nothing that she would have changed, the holiday was perfect. Mexico was a delight, we had never been before, the people sincerely friendly and helpful, the service as great but everything exceeded expectations. My sister and the children thought that the cenotes were amazing as they were such a surprise but we loved it all.RN, Ascot
All of it was good. The actual order of places I visited also coincided with the progression of history, from ancient to more recent. Very well arranged indeed.DB, Birmingham
Most memorable experience? “It's impossible to pick any individual aspect; but a number of experiences stood out: the visit to the "voodoo" church at St Juan Chamula (extraordinary and unexpected), the visit to the shrine of the Madonna of Guadalupe on the way to Teotihuacan in Mexico City (similar, and helped understand Mexican history), Palenque (the most beautiful and atmospheric of the pre-hispanic sites), and swimming in the three cenotes at Cuzama near Merida, which we arranged ourselves.AR, Gospel Oak
Highlights?: The church in San Juan Chamula Visiting Tonina en route from San Cristobal to Palenque. A beautiful setting, only a handful of other visitors and complete freedom to roam.DW, Stone
Highlights: Palenque site. The beach at TulumJB, Leatherhead
As a first time traveler to Central America, I can't stress enough how pleasurable Journey Latin America made Mexico for us. We feel as if we have a million magical memories that will last forever - sunsets over the Caribbean sea, ruins in the midst of the jungles, seas of pink flamingos, crocodiles nestling on the banks of the Canyon Del Sumida. We were nervous as non Spanish speakers but we felt so supported without that horrible feeling of being over organized. Thank you againLH, Pinner
We liked the variety of our trip - ancient Mayan ruins, real Mexican towns and people, and beautiful beaches. It was wonderful to access Chichen Itza from the grounds of Mayaland Resort and get in there early and before it was too hot without any crowds. We loved swimming in Dzitnup Cenote.PR
Highlights: We went to a small nature reserve (Copalita) near to our hotel in Hualtuco that was really lovely, teaming with wildlife. Monte Alban was very impressive as well.SP,
"The tours provided were everything that we hoped, with the tour guides very good."GS, Rayleigh
Highlight of your Trip?: Climbing the Pyramid of the sun, Punting at Xochimilco was wonderful.AHC, Blaydon-on-tyne
Most memorable aspect: “The view from Monte Alban across Oaxaca and the valleys around. Eating in Cafe Tacuba in Mexico City with a troop of troubadours playing would come a close second, followed by the flight to Huatulco when we flew all along the coast before landing, courtesy of a local businessman who was playing host to an American novelist. Xochimilco was also memorable and fun.JB, Dublin
"Many highlights: The views at Uxmal. Waking up with a view of the observatory at Chichen Itza from our hotel bed. The excellent guides. The friendliness of the staff (and impromptu language lessons) at Petit Lafitte."TR, Farnham
I would have no hesitation in recommending the company and we will in future certainly use you again. Everything that was arranged happened to time which for what I had been told about Mexico pleasantly surprised me. All in all a fantastic experienceBH Tonbridge
Highlights?: Too many! Probably seeing Uxmal, the Tiger Egret, swimming in Cenotes (various), Chichen-Itza at dawn and visiting Frida Kahlo's house.AA, Newport
Most memorable experience: The friendliness of the Mexican peopleGW Chertsey
