Mexico Trips

Why travel solo to Mexico?

Mexico is known for historical intrigue, pristine beaches and vibrant cuisine - but you’ll find there’s plenty more to be discovered too.

Fresh tacos bursting with chilli and herbs, a plate of steamed tamales, shredded beef soaked in lime juice… Mexico beckons foodies from all over the world with the promise of rich cuisine, whether you encounter its flavours in a seafood barbecue in La Paz or from the street markets of Oaxaca. If a culinary adventure sounds like your kind of escape, we invite you to join us on a journey into Mexico’s beating heart – combining all the excitement of outdoor adventure with the thrill of cultural discovery.

One of the best times to visit Mexico, in our opinion, is during the Day of the Dead celebrations in November. We’ve curated a unique itinerary, running once a year, which will introduce you to Mexico in its full, blossoming richness. Encounter the beauty of Mexico City awash with candlelight, calaveras and marigolds, as the city embraces a celebration of death, and life.

If it’s beaches you’re after, Mexico offers some of Central America’s best, from Baja California to the Yucatan Peninsula. White-sand beaches, tropical blue seas and abundant wildlife are all part of the scene here. On our Yucatan adventure, you’ll also wild swim through the region’s otherworldly cenotes and uncover a series of mystical Maya landmarks – your perfect introduction to Mexico’s compelling culture.

Top places to visit in Mexico

Baja California Sur

This Mexico hot spot was once called ‘the world’s aquarium’ thanks to its abundance of aquatic life. If you want to spend your days overlooking the Pacific Ocean, drinking cocktails by the beach and swimming amongst marine wildlife, then head to Baja.

Cancún

A tropical paradise with white sandy beaches and emerald seas, this city on the Yucatán Peninsula is a prime resort hotspot. But we recommend venturing beyond the resorts to experience the best of Cancún. Visit Nichupté Lagoon, a vast mangrove area that’s home to crocodiles, iguanas and leopard frogs, or head downtown to experience local life.

Tulum

To explore Mexico’s Mayan history, head to Tulum. This ancient port city is full of well-preserved ruins, including a castle. The nearby coastal region of Parque Nacional Tulum is where you can explore mangroves and natural limestone sinkholes known as cenotes.

Oaxaca

Regarded as the culinary capital of Mexico, this southwestern city is set amid a striking mountainscape. Sample some of the best food Mexico has to offer in its street food stalls and taste some of the nation’s finest beers in a local brewery. Head out to the Sierra Norte mountains to explore the vast natural beauty surrounding this city.
