Discover beautiful beaches when you hire a car in Mexico

Mexico is a superb all-round holiday destination with a heady mix of history and culture combined with great weather and fantastic beaches on its Caribbean, Atlantic and Pacific coasts.

With a choice of airports, including Cancun (CUN), Mexico City (MEX), Puerto Vallarta (PVR), Cozumel (CZM) and Acapulco ACA, it's easy to hire a car and tour the Yucatan, Oaxaca, Monterrey, Vera Cruz, Guadalajara and Baja California.

From eerie cloud forests to spectacular corals reefs, Mexico has a wealth of wonders for nature lovers, while history buffs can delight in the many Mayan ruins such as the archaeological site at Chichen Itza. For more traditional lively nights out and full-on holidays, head to Cancun or Acapulco.

With so much diversity, Mexico has more than enough options to keep even the most demanding traveller occupied. From surfing on the beaches at Baja California to whale watching, exploring Aztec ruins in Mexico City or watching the cliff divers in Acapulco or riding the mountain railroad through the Copper Canyon, Mexico has new delights around every corner.

Mexico is a great year-round destination but the beaches tend to be most popular between October and May. Although the rest of Mexico is almost always hot, some of the more mountainous regions may be a little cooler during the winter months.Chill out on a hammock in Mexico

In high season, Mexico car hire is the best way to escape the crowds and find a quiet area of beach of your own. It is also the only real way to see some of the more remote ruins and monuments. In most areas, the roads are excellent and you'll have no problems but if you're planning to drive into more remote areas, it's a good idea to check the website of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office for the latest advisory notices.

You can hire a car from any of the main airports and, to prevent you having to double back on yourself, it is also possible to hire the vehicle at one location and return it to another. Many visitors choose to hire a VW Beetle, which has become an iconic symbol of Mexico's roads.
