Where to Go in Mexico
Starting just south of Cancun and extending to Tulum, the Riviera Maya is home to some of the most important archaeological sites in the Mayan world, fronted by the world’s second-largest coral reef. With a definite nod to upmarket travel, this special region is teeming with white sandy beaches, azure blue waters, a myriad of water sports and a lush tropical jungle.
The unspoilt and uncrowded beaches provide access to the coral reef for world-class scuba diving and snorkelling with sea turtles. However, the adventure begins inland. Here you can snorkel in a huge network of underground rivers and “cenotes” (deep pools) in the jungle for a unique experience to share with your fellow travellers. Kayaking, mountain biking and zip-lining are also on the cards for those seeking an active holiday.
Do also include a visit to the Mayan ruins. And, though Chichen Itza is quite a journey from the coast (approximately two hours away, but most think it well worth it), wandering around Tulum still makes for a fascinating morning – complete with iguana spotting for a brush with the local wildlife.
Enjoy a warm welcome from your Mexican hosts, wherever you stay, along with fantastic food and some surprisingly good local wines.

When to go
The Yucatan Peninsula has a tropical climate with high temperatures all year round. The best time to visit is during the dry season (December-April). The rainy season typically runs from May-November when it gets very humid and can be stifling inland if you are exploring the Mayan archaeological sites. However, you can still travel early in the summer months with rain falling mostly in the afternoons but as the season progresses the risk of tropical storms and hurricanes increases.
Flights: British Airways have daily direct flights to Cancun (approx. 10 hours). There are also connecting flight options via the USA.
Typical carbon emissions for a return flight (Economy) per person: 620 kg.
