Best Luxury Hotels In Mexico

From paradise beaches with gentle lapping azure seas to vibrant, colourful cities, Mexico mixes culture and luxury perfectly. Its west coast – and the Yucatan peninsula in particular – is home to lavish resorts, theme parks and ancient Aztec ruins. And with lots of flights from across the UK to Cancun airport, it’s an easy, long-haul option. Or if you’d like to sample a different side of the country’s coast, go loco in the iconic destination of Acapulco, where you can watch cliff-divers and drink some of the best margaritas in the world. Or venture inland to Spanish colonial towns, cities on the edge of the jungle, and the wonderfully loud Latin capital.
