Where to Stay in Mexico

If you have not yet added Mexico to your holiday wish-list you really need to do so!  Mexico has something for everyone; a great deal of the action is centred around the sun and the sea, but there is a lot more to Mexico than just the beach.  Within a short distance from your base on the coast you can be in the jungle, exploring the ancient Mayan cities and temples, flying over the tree-tops on a zip line, or drifting through underwater caves and rivers in the subterranean landscapes of Xplor, near Cancun.

Best Resorts in Mexico
