Mexico: Holidays in Paradise
When it comes to holidays in paradise, a trip to Mexico just about sums it up. On the coast you’ve got the sort of characteristic Caribbean scenery that makes you sigh in awe – azure seas, powdery white sands and gently swaying palm trees – while further inland you’re greeted by spectacular Mayan ruins and forgotten relics of time gone by, steamy jungles and soaring mountain peaks.
And although it’s a lengthy jaunt from the UK, thanks to the range of package holidays on offer it’s pretty easy to get there. Any one of the mainstream tour operators offer an excellent range of all inclusive Mexico holidays which is the perfect way to chill out, de-stress and enjoy your time away while everything is taken care of.
All inclusive isn’t to everyone’s taste, and many would rather spend time away from the hotel, exploring the local sites or sampling some delicious Mexican cuisine. But for those who like having their meals included along with soft drinks and alcoholic beverages – often including local wines, beers, spirits and even cocktails – it’s a great way of spending a relaxing week or two on Mexico’s sun-soaked coastline.
When travelling with a tour operator you will also benefit from a local representative who can offer advice on day trips and excursions. For instance, package holidays with Thomas Cook not only include flights, accommodation and transfers, but they also include the assistance of a member of staff stationed in or near your resort who can help with any problems, and help you to get the most out of your holiday. Many organised excursions are arranged through the tour operator and can often be booked in advance or in the resort – perfect for getting out and about to explore your local surroundings and having a holiday to remember.
