Holidays in Mexico can get hot, hot, hot. It's not just the sizzling sunshine that raises temperatures in this wonderful destination: from red-hot chilli peppers firing up your food and tequila shots lifting your spirits, to sensational nightlife and culture, scintillating Mexico is unforgettable.
From its sugar-soft sands and crystal clear waters to ancient historical sites and outstanding scenery - a holiday in Mexico will have you hooked...
Mexico holidays offer so much more than idyllic beaches. History buffs, for example, will marvel at the ancient treasures lying in wait inland, such as the Mayan city of Chichen Itza. Combined with vibrant city encounters and natural attractions including spotting whales off the coast and swimming with dolphins, memories of Mexico will stay with you forever.
Most travellers head to the east coast of Mexico, in and around Cancun on the Yucatan Peninsula and the nearby dive-paradise island of Cozumel, both of which are lapped by the Caribbean Sea. Alternative options include Puerto Vallarta, Acapulco, and Los Cabos on the wilder west coast, where the Pacific Ocean provides the waves.
Cancun is renowned for its beach front hotels, lively nightlife and wealth of family entertainment, while Cozumel mostly caters for divers keen to explore the amazing underwater world.
Puerto Vallarta and Acapulco, on the other hand, are more traditional Mexican holiday hotspots offering greater authenticity and tranquillity.
Los Cabos, on the Baja California peninsula, draws lots of American tourists who appreciate fishing and golf as well as swimming and surf.

Sun-worshippers will love the year-round sun offered by holidays to Mexico - find out when is best to travel and how to avoid hurricane season...
Tropical Mexico pleases holidaymakers with year-round warmth and sunshine. Travel between November and April to experience dry, hot days with daytime averages of up to 28C. Rain is more likely out of this season, and June to October is hurricane season, so while you might bag a bargain break, you could experience some inclement weather.
Let the good times roll on holidays in Mexico when you can opt to join in with one of the many events held throughout the year. Here are some of the best...

Grown-up families: Acapulco is quieter than some east coast resorts and teens will be in awe as locals dive from the cliffs at La Quebrada.
Nightlife: It has to be Cancun for unrivalled tequila-fuelled nightlife. Parts of the long Hotel Zone will pump all night to the sounds of loud tunes and excited partygoers.
Romance: Between Puerto Vallarta and Acapulco is lovely Ixtapa, from where you can jump aboard a boat and watch the sun setting over the sea.
Kids & teens: Glass-bottomed boats trips are a great way to get to grips with the underwater world, without the hassle of drying them off! Take a trip from Cabo San Lucas, part of Los Cabos.
