Mexico’s culture and history is infused with Aztec, Mayan, Toltec, and Spanish influences. Its world famous cuisine, from the molés of Oaxaca, fresh seafood, marinated al pastor tacos, and refreshing tequila cocktails have earned it UNESCO’s Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity award; only the second country after France to receive it. It’s time for a Mexico vacation. Olé!

A Cancun vacation on a white-sand beach, or at one of the many AAA Five-Diamond all-inclusive resorts along the Riviera Maya, is only part of the Mexican story today. Mexico's landscape ranges from desert, to jungle, to limestone caverns and cenotes, underground rivers and Mayan ruins, providing myriad options for travel locations and things to do once you’re there. Whether staying at Mexico’s most luxurious beach-side resorts, Colonial cities like San Miguel de Allende, or at authentic Mexican haciendas and private villas in Yucatan, our travel experts can arrange for you the best that a Mexico vacation has to offer. Or consider a Mexican Riviera cruise.
Mexico's gastronomy has risen to the top tier of world's best cuisines. Certainly one reason to take a vacation in Mexico is to get 'the real deal.' There are the "sandwich" options like tortas, tostadas, tiacoyo, pambazo and gorditos. Chilaquiles is a popular breakfast dish of fried corn tortillas topped with salsa, fried eggs, pulled chicken and cheese. With Middle Eastern roots, tacos al pastor are quite the rage: thin strips of meat sliced off a spit, put on a corn tortilla and served with onions, coriander leaves and pineapple. Beef Barbacoa is slow-braised beef shoulder cooked with chipotle chiles and cumin. Pozole is a traditional soup made from hominy corn, herbs and spices and various meats or options. A patriotic dish that's the red-white-green colors of the Mexican flag is chiles en nogada: poblano chillies filled with chopped meat, fruits and spices, a walnut cream sauce and pomegranate seeds. If you like corn, Mexico's elote is divine: served on a stick with chilli powder, lime, butter, cheese, mayonnaise and sour cream. Moles are the famous sauce that comes in a plethora of styles and spices: the common ingredient is chiles. Finally, don't miss the opportunity to dine at Pujol in Mexico City (and book away in advance.)
