Overview

Mexico is a huge country - eight times bigger than Britain - with a wonderful variety of landscapes, climates and traditions to match. On a holiday to Mexico, admire deserts, mountains and jungles that have been the backdrop to a fascinating, colourful history.

Discover the vestiges of the Aztec and Mayan empires, with magnificent ruined pyramids and temples on archaeological sites, as well as graceful colonial towns and haciendas, and a timeless indigenous way of life that continues in the villages and markets.

The countryside is stunning too: a spine of rippling mountains, studded with armies of cacti, while much of the coastline is enveloped in dripping rainforest. All this is fringed by sugary beaches and aquamarine seas.

Mexico is a modern country with a robust emerging economy. Its huge capital is one of the world’s greatest cities, and there’s an efficient road and air network linking Mexico’s major attractions.

You can explore all this on a Mexico holiday with Journey Latin America. You'll find a superb selection of holidays in Mexico to suit all kinds of travellers. Whether you're searching for a solo holiday, looking for your perfect family holiday, or want to join a group tour, we have a number of impressive choices.

Where to go when - our guide to Mexico

Day of the Dead

The weather in Mexico is wide and varied

Mexico is an enormous country with a variety of landscapes and climates to match. The best time to visit depends on your priorities. For exciting cultural events, you’d do well to visit during Day of the Dead on 1-2 November, with colourful parades and skeletal costumes, or on Independence Day on 16 September which is celebrated with military parades and cries of ‘Viva Mexico!’ For outdoor adventures and sports including hiking, mountain biking and snorkelling, it is advisable to visit during the drier season from November - April, which offers cooler temperatures, clearer seas and reduced rainfall across the country. Visit Baja California or Puerto Vallarta between January - March to catch sight of humpbacks, blue and gray whales which breed and calve in the sheltered tropical bays. Between May and October there is more rainfall across the country, with hotter temperatures and higher humidity, particularly around the coastal areas. The busiest months for visitors are December - January and July - August, when you can expect lively crowds and a buzzing atmosphere.
