Mexico Caribbean Coast



Mexico Caribbean Coast

Mexico’s Caribbean Coast lies along the eastern coast of Yucatan Peninsula and is known for its beautiful beaches. Cancun, in the north, is the most famous with miles of long beaches lined with luxury resorts. To the south, Playa del Carmen is a coastal resort town with palm-lined beaches backed by restaurants and laid-back bars, that come alive at night. This stretch of land, called Mexico's Riviera Maya is backed with all-inclusive resorts.

This tour is a memorable adventure taking in three different areas of Mexico: Mexico City, the sophisticated and vibrant capital of Mexico. Transfer to San Miguel de Allende, best known for its cobblestone backstreets lined with beautiful colonial buildings. Continue to Queretaro, one of Mexico´s colonial jewels with archaeological sites such as the pyramid in Corregidora and most beautiful at night. Then travel to Riviera Maya, on the Caribbean coastline, a perfect place for a romantic hideaway.

And, experience the ancient Mayan ruins of Tulum and Chichen Itza.

Getting There The only direct scheduled flights from the UK to Mexico are from London Heathrow to Mexico City or London Gatwick to Cancún, both with British Airways. Flying from anywhere else in Britain to Mexico, will require change of planes somewhere. If flying via the US, it’s worth checking if your transatlantic carrier has an airpass deal for non-US residents – most major US airlines do – by which you purchase coupons at a flat rate for a certain number of flights in North America. The pass will usually also include one or more destinations in Mexico and Canada.

When to go November to May: This is late winter in Mexico and the best time to visit. January to March are the months to visit Baja California to see the visiting whales. Beginning June, the rains begin to make their presence known, mostly in the form of an afternoon storm. July is the heart of Mexico's rainy season, though rains still accustomed to its afternoon routine, cooling down the temperatures. In August and September, rains become heavier, particularly on the Pacific Coast. By October, rains begin to ease a little but humid condition remain across much of the country.
