Mexico is so much more than mariachis, tequila, spring break, guacamole, and tacos. It is a country rich with history, fascinating culture, dense jungles, sprawling beaches and fabulous food. Whether you’re interested in roaming the grounds of startling ruins, laying out on the white sands of the country’s many resort beaches or going snorkeling off the waters of the Yucatan peninsula, there is something for every discerning traveler.
• Explore the colonial pleasures of Oaxaca, the mountain setting of San Miguel de Allende, or the classic haciendas and cobblestone streets of Guadalajara and Merida.
• Outside of the urban centres, Mexico’s Mayan ruins are incredible—visit the sacred sites of Tulum and Chichen Itza.
• Along the Mayan Riviera are perfect swathes of sandy beaches with excellent reef and cave diving.
• Trek in the exotic southern jungle, Palenque is the largest of the Mayan ruins and is an incredible sight backed by the Chiapan mountains.
• Swim with whale sharks and relax on Isla Holbox. This sleepy, car-free island off the coast of the Yucatan Peninsula is ideal for relaxing on white-sand beaches.
• Experience the ultimate spa experience at a natural cenote combined with an authentic Temazcal ceremony.
• For an epic adventure, travel to the remote north to Copper Canyon (deeper than its more famous brother across the border), which can be traversed by train (affectionately known as ‘El Chepe’).
• Head to the Pacific Coast, base yourself in the luxury outpost of Baja California and get up close and personal to grey whales or check out the wilder south around Puerto Escondido where surfing is the main sport.

ESENCIA (top pick!)
Carretera Cancún – Tulum km 265, Xpu-Ha, Quintana Roo 77750
Hotel Esencia, once the beachside villa of an Italian duchess, is set on a secluded 50-acre estate of lush gardens on pristine Xpu-Ha beach. This delightful Mayan Riviera refuge has five rooms, two villas, 33 suites, an organic spa and two authentic farm-to-table restaurants offering the flavors of the Yucatán. You’ll find coral reefs, multicolored fish and giant sea turtles, all only steps from the resort’s quiet beach. Visit the hotel website.
Calle Igualdad, Holbox, , Mexico
The island of Holbox is a tiny spit of land off the Yucatán Peninsula, laced with sand roads. As soon as Cuban-born artist Sandra Pérez arrived, she knew she wanted to stay for good, so she created a retreat that would feel more like a residence than a formal hotel. CasaSandra, the 20-room result, is spread out among seven oceanfront buildings. Palapas are sprinkled along the beach, and the water’s edge is 50 uninterrupted steps away. Visit the hotel website.
