With some of the world’s most beautiful beaches, 81 miles of coastline and one of the planet’s largest reefs, Mexico offers abundant ecological landscapes, thriving marine life and ancient archaeological sites.
Riviera Maya is a stunning coastal strip between Puerto Morelos to Punta Allen, on the Yucatan Peninsula, which separates the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea. Alongside the superb golf courses and sumptuous holiday accommodation, is the world-renown Great Mayan Reef. Stretching over 1,000 kilometres, the reef and clear waters are home of a huge diversity of marine species. Naturally, this is a huge attraction for divers from around the world.
The Peninsula is home to ancient Mayan sites such as Tulum and Uxmal, and ecological reserves including the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Sian Ka’an.

The Pacific Ocean and Sea of Cortes meet at the southern tip of Mexico which is a hugely popular destination for water sports and land-based adventures. The destination of Los Cabos offers activities from fishing and windsurfing, to golf, spas and lively nightlife.
No matter where you choose to stay, you can indulge in Mexico’s diverse cuisine. If you are brave enough, enjoy the hot chillies, or savour local herbs, spices and seafood in local and international restaurants.
