From its sugar-soft sands and crystal clear waters to ancient historical sites and outstanding scenery - a holiday in Mexico will have you hooked.
There are 14 miles of beach on which to lay your towel in the Cancun tourist area, which is on the Yucatan Peninsula. At the northern end of the district you'll find calm waters, and in the south, rougher waters are perfect for watersports. The resorts of Cancun run down the coast along the beautiful Riviera Maya and end in the south at Tulum.
Tourists arrive at Cancun International Airport (CUN) on scheduled flights as well as direct charter flights from across the UK.
Visitors are torn between resorts such as Xcalak,Playa del Carmen, the tiny island of Isla Mujeres,Playacar, and the eco area of Xcaret. The main strip of Cancun itself is renowned for being the wild child of the peninsula. She's ready to entertain with restaurants, bars and nightclubs.
Getting out of the resort and shaking off the excesses of the night before is a must when in this part of Mexico. There is so much beauty and intrigue just itching to be discovered.
Cool off in the underground river that is Rio Secreto, or take in some art with a twist at the underwater museum known as MUSA. The aquarium on La Isla will be a treat for the kids, while Garrafon Natural Reef Park offers a further enchanting glimpse into the underwater world of Mexico.
Very few outsiders visit the unspoilt Isla Holbox, where you can see fishermen at work and where you can witness Mexico at its most quiet.
Avoiding the crowds might not be possible at Chichen Itza. One of the Seven New Wonders of the World, the ancient Mayan city is a bit of a hike from Cancun, but it is definitely worth it.
The city of Merida, some four hours from Cancun by car, is also worth the time and effort as it is bursting at the seams with colonial history and architecture.
