- Mexico Luxury holidays
Visit a landscape which is often overlooked in terms of its geographical diversity and range of different climates. Mexico is one of the world's largest countries, and its tropical position only serves to enhance its internal contrasts further. North of the Tropic of Cancer, the winters are cooler, whereas to the south the climate is steady all year round. Many of its largest cities are at an increased altitude, giving them cooler night temperatures, and luring many holidaymakers who are planning a luxury holiday in Mexico.
Mexico - a destination with global appeal
Mexico ranks among the world's most popular holiday destinations, with visitors arriving all year round. The summer season is a peak time for international arrivals, thanks to the greater opportunity to take a holiday during the school vacation period, and other traditional break times, such as spring and Easter, also see a surge in tourist arrivals. December is a further busy time for Mexican tourism, and the steady climate in many parts of the country could be one explanation as to why so many holidaymakers decide to spend their Christmas or New Year there.
Spanish culture in Mexico
Spanish culture is dominant throughout Mexico, not least in the sense of the language spoken by the native inhabitants. Around a third of all the Spanish speakers in the world live in Mexico - more than in Spain, or any other country - and this accounts for very nearly 100% of the Mexican population too, with about one in 20 people still able to speak an indigenous language as well.
When should I visit Mexico?
The timing of your visit is as much a case of 'where' as it is a case of 'when'. In the north of the country, the winter months are cooler, whereas in the south this is not the case. If you want a cooler break in southern Mexico, the only real way to achieve this is to visit a location at higher altitude, so bear this in mind when selecting your destination. The north also has a fairly dry climate at all times of year, which contrasts with the south's higher rainfall totals. Again, this is as much about where you visit as when, so check local climate data to be sure that the destination suits your tastes in terms of weather conditions for the time of year.
What’s on offer on a luxury holiday?
Luxury holidays offer a break from the norm, with opportunities to discover destinations off the beaten track. If you want to enjoy a spot of yoga on your hotel’s private beach, you can. If it’s sociable evenings you’re after, take advantage of your all-inclusive resort offerings. With a luxury holiday, you pick the experiences you want and your hotel will do all the rest. Paying that bit extra just means that any holiday stresses are removed. When it comes to luxury holidays in Mexico, there are plenty to choose from. Party in Cancun, soak up the sun on the stylish beaches of Tulum, and enjoy coastal paradise in Riviera Maya. The possibilities are endless.
