Mexico Holidays: Out and about
Daytrips to Mayan ruins or on boat trips are a popular way to spend daytimes for those who prefer to be more active during their holiday in Mexico. Head for the Yucatan Peninsula, an area that provides a wealth of cultural treats, but particularly the magnificent Mayan ruins at Chichen Itza, Uxmal, Edzna and Tulum where you can discover all the secrets of this ancient civilisation. Another place well worth visiting is the 16th Century colonial city of Vallodolid, the picture postcard Mexican town of Campeche with its cobbled streets and pastel coloured houses, the white City of Merida with its limestone buildings or hop on a boat at Celestun and explore the lagoon.
A tour of the Mayan ruins is a must and many tours can be organized at your hotel in resort or some can prebooked before travel. If its more of an adventure that you are looking for, why not try a jungle trek or speeding along the lagoon to the Caribbean sea in your own mini speedboat. Nature's Secret Paradise at Xcaret is an eco–archaeological park with a range of wild animals, including jaguars and sea turtles, all based around a natural coastal inlet.
With a year round tropical climate holidays to Mexico are popular with families in the summer, attracted by the excellent facilities in the hotels, and are popular with couples, friends, singles and groups all year round.
