Mexico is the essence of Latin America with a rich and colourful history of Aztecs, Mayans and Olmecs, of explorers and conquerors, of bandidos and revolutionaries, of artists and soulful musicians. It’s landscape is an artists dream – adobe houses in arid deserts, Aztec and Mayan ruins peeking through lush jungles or overlooking white sandy beaches and turquoise waters, snow-capped mountains and smoking volcanoes, and picture perfect colonial towns.The highlights of Mexico are too many to include in just one visit, but some of the not to be missed destinations are: the Aztec pyramids of Teotihuacan; The Yucatan Peninsula with its Mayan cities of Palenque, Uxmal, Chichen Itza and Tulum and its Caribbean beaches; colonial gems such as Oaxaca, Puebla, Taxco and San Miguel de Allende; a step back in time in the amazing Copper Canyon; and the glorious beaches.
