  • Ancient Wonders

    Mexico is home to one of the Seven Wonders of the World, and this incredible site can’t be missed. At the ancient Myan city of Chichen Itza, you can find the temple of Kukulkan, and this glorious structure (devoted to a serpent god) is an iconic sight, with its towering steps leading all the way to the top.

  • Swim in Cenotes

    Cenotes are incredible and unique sinkholes that you can find dotted all over Mexico, and these “sacred wells” are an amazing natural phenomenon to see. Cenote Dos Ojos is one of the most famous in Mexico, and you can swim in the clear blue waters here, providing a true haven for snorkelling and scuba diving. Or, simply relax and soak up the sun and the beautiful, sunny surroundings.

  • Experience the Day of the Dead

    One of Mexico’s most famous holiday highlights has to be Día de Muertos; this fiesta is full of funky skeletons and vividly-bright colours, where you’ll get to celebrate life with the locals. Both Oaxaca and Merida are fantastic places to see the festivities spill out onto the streets from the candlelit cemeteries, all while feasting and drinking into the night.
