Whether travellers are planning a classic beach getaway or an action-packed adventure, this varied destination has something to offer everyone. Sun-seekers can lounge by the sparkling shores of Riviera Maya or unwind on the untouched beaches of Isla Holbox off the coast of Cancun. The famous Mayan sites of Chichén Itzá and Tulum are a must-see for visitors heading to Cancun and the surrounding area, where travellers can learn all about the region’s fascinating history and vibrant culture. On the other side of Mexico, the Pacific Coast offers plenty of opportunities for adventure; where explorers can embark on an ATV excursion through the desert landscapes of Los Cabos, stroll down the Malecón boardwalk in Puerto Vallarta or go whale watching in Mazatlán.
