Tulum, Mexico

Introducing Mexico

Soak up the hot sun on one of Mexico's great beach resorts – Cancun, Puerta Vallarta and Cabo San Lucas – then discover Mexico’s ancient wonders on a journey through the heart of the Aztec and Mayan empires – just perfect for adventurous honeymoon couples.

What to do and see in Mexico
Discover elaborate and highly decorated ceremonial architecture, including temple-pyramids, palaces and observatories – all built by the Mayans without metal tools.

Climb the 2000-year-old pyramids at Chichén Itzá, Copan and Uxmal; explore the stunning ruins of Palenque; wander around the vast city of Teotihuacán; scramble into sacrificial sinkholes at Cenoté; or cool off with a refreshing swim in the Caribbean beneath the famous walled Mayan fortress of Tulum.

Along the way, listen to howler monkeys and spot toucans, wild turkeys and peccaries in sub-tropical rainforests. Then hang out in an outdoor cafe with a margarita or two or enjoy a glass of red wine as you savour Mexico’s famous tortillas, tamales and enchiladas.

Shop for bargains in the numerous markets and perhaps stumble into one of Mexico’s many lively village fiestas – join in the fun and learn a few traditional dance steps to show off when you return home.

Best time to visit Mexico?
Ideally visit Mexico in November, after the rainy season and before the peak tourist season in December. Plan to visit the highlands in summer and the coast in winter for the best weather conditions.

Any time of the year is good if you make allowances for the rain in summer, the cold in winter, and for sudden changes in temperature from the low-lying coastal regions to the elevated inland areas.

Mexico’s climate varies according to its topography:
• Mexico City ranges between 10˚C in winter and 25˚C in summer;
• Merida (near Chichén Itzá) averages 20˚C in winter and from 27˚C to 32˚C in summer;
• Acapulco and Cancun average 26˚C year round but can reach 32˚C in summer.
Summer, from June to October, is the rainy season; winter, from December to February, is the traditional tourist season.
