White-sand beaches and ancient history: it’s all included in your Mexico getaway
In a land of mythical golden cities and lost tropical paradises, a stay in Mexico is guaranteed to be an adventure.
With its Atlantic and Pacific shores boasting over 450 beaches, Mexico is a postcard paradise. At only 42km of your Club Med Cancún Yucatán resort jump on a boat to Isla Mujeres to snorkel in the calm turquoise water or visit a turtle farm. Your stay in Mexico continues in the “Yucatán Getaway” leading you to Tulum, the only Mayan fortified city built on the coastline. End your trip in the south and venture deep into the Mexican jungle to discover Yaxchilan. Only accessible by boat, the journey to this ancient Mayan city on the Guatemalan border is definitely worth a trip.
Southern Mexico still has some hidden place to discover. Embark on the “Pre-Columbian Mexico” tour and explore the city of Teotihuacán, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and its Pyramid of the Sun, the third largest pyramid in the world. If Mexico harbours over 30 classified sites, Chichén Itzá is the most famous and definitely worth an excursion. Want to see something different? Head over the town of Catemaco in Veracruz and see what this Land of Sorcerers is all about.
After diving head first into history and discoveries enjoy calm and relaxing spots. Hit the road and head to the Sistema Dos Ojos and dive into these natural pools of crystal clear water. For those keen on exploring the sea bed, take the ferry to Cozumel Island one of the most stunning scuba diving spots. Just opposite the island hit the Mayakoba Golf course, featured in the PGA Tour. Finally head back to Playa Del Carmen to hang with the locals.
