Tucked into the most northerly portion of Central America lies Mexico. Long associated with men dressed in blankets and sombreros and fajitas, there is way more to this culturally diverse, historic and ultimately fascinating country than many realize. As well as being one of the most loved holiday destinations in the world, Mexico is also one of the largest economies in the world and is the number one producer of silver as well as being the 10th largest producer of oil.
Officially known as the United Mexican States, with Spanish as its official language, Mexico is a land where you leave your conceptions behind when you get off the plane.

To start with, Mexico is a lot bigger than many people think, boasting a population of more than 113 millions. The diversity of the landscape comes as a pleasant surprise too, with mountains, deserts and glorious beaches all vying for attention.
Mexican hospitality and cuisine is renowned across the globe, and sitting in a little restaurant eating tacos certainly takes some beating. You will find Mexican food available in all four corners of the world, but nothing beats an authentic Mexican meal in a cafe which has been in the same family for generations. Forget your supermarket fajita kits; this is the real Mexican cuisine.
Tourism is booming in Mexico, but the country has managed to remain unspoilt. They have accomplished this by having designated tourist areas and resorts, leaving the small towns and villages to carry on life as they have for centuries. This ability to retain its past and its charm is a major draw for those travelers who want to experience life in a country that has remained true to its heritage and not a Mexican holiday somewhere which has been blighted by concrete skyscraper hotels.
With borders on both the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea, beach holidays are hugely popular in Mexico, and it is also a popular wedding venue for those couples who want somewhere very special to celebrate.
The white sands fringed with palm trees and azure waters lapping at the shore are the nearest thing to a Caribbean island you will find without actually going there.
Resorts here are both luxurious and tasteful as well as being very family orientated.
They also feature such delights as being able to swim with dolphins without even leaving the resort, something which is rare to find. A Mexican holiday can be taken at one of the plush resorts or you can take a tour and see more of the country than you probably would otherwise. The choice is yours, and what a choice it is.

To sum up, a country of almost 3 millions square kilometers covers everything you ever want from a holiday. A tropical temperature, history, culture, beaches, shopping, entertainment, the list just goes on an on.
The term ‘holiday of a lifetime’ is much overused when it comes to traveling, but as far as a Mexican holiday is concerned it is the perfect description.
