Holiday rentals and lettings in Mexico
Vibrant, colourful, cosmopolitan, pristine and ancient, there are many adjectives to describe Mexico, but the only way to truly get a sense of its exotic diversity is to experience the country first hand. You can find a holiday rental in Mexico on the sands of its myriad palm-fringed resorts both on the Gulf of Mexico and the Pacific, which offer very different flavours, or in one of its culturally rich towns and cities dotting the interior, in the lush rainforests of the far south, or in the soaring mountains and bottomless canyons of the north.High-quality lettings at a great price
The gorgeous holiday rentals lining the seaside and dotting the interior of the country offer a fantastic price-to-quality ratio. Find a holiday rental with a pool in the homeland of the ancient Aztec civilization, on the tree-lined broad streets of North America’s oldest city, Mexico City, in one of the country’s beautiful protected natural areas, or simply by a fly-and-flop beach with all the amenities you could hope for at your doorstep.

The area and getting around
Mexico is a country of over 120,000 million people and one of incredible diversity. You can choose from the majestic deserts and canyons of the north, the splendid colonial cities of the centre and the ancient ruins, tropical beaches and jungles of the south. Many people who visit Mexico once find that they come back again and again, as you could spend year’s travelling this exotic land, and still not see it all!Visit Mexico’s most popular region
The Yucatan peninsula is Mexico’s number one destination. In the south of the country, it dazzles you with ancient ruins, azure seas, world-class resorts and a dynamic, intoxicating culture. If this is your destination of choice, Cancun is the biggest airport in the region, with direct flights to major cities in Europe and North America.
Travellers and activities
Mexico offers its visitors an endless bounty of rewards, but few more dazzling than its world-class archaeology sites. Mexico was the homeland of ancient civilizations such as the Aztecs and Mayas, who all left an indelible mark on the landscape. Primarily located on the Yucatan peninsula, there are dozens of pyramids and well-preserved ruins to enjoy, and none better than Chichen Itza, one of the New Wonders of the World. If timing allows, visit the site at the equinox, when the sun creates shadows on the pyramid resembling the body of a serpent.Mexico for beach bums
With over 6,000 miles of coastline, you could spend years exploring the delights of the Mexican coastline and still not see it all. Want to be in the heart of all the action? The famous Cancun beach is the beach party hub of Mexico! Looking to get away to your own hidden paradise? Bahia San Agustín on the Pacific Ocean is a long, crescent stretch of beach with absurdly beautiful cobalt-coloured water. On the other side of the country, on the Gulf of Mexico, Xpu-Ha located to the south of Cancun is a quintessential white sandy beach backed by a forest of palm trees. Pure tropical paradise!
The popularity of the insect diet in Asia is well known, but fewer people are aware that Mexicans commonly eat spiders, grasshoppers, and even scorpions! Look out in the local markets!
Top 5 travel tips in Mexico
Head to Oaxaca City in the south of the country for the most colourful Day of the Dead festival in Mexico. It is a pure celebration of life, with music and dancing at the main city cemetery, prismatic marketplaces, parties till dawn and carnival-esque processions.2. Down a shot of Mexico’s most popular drink
It’s tequila surely? Surprise, Mexico’s favourite drink is in fact a derivative of the agave plant called mezcal! This extremely strong spirit is available on practically every street corner of the country, but the best place to try it is in the state of Oaxaca, and a great place to take a tour to a mezcal farm and see how it is made.3. Explore one of the world’s most colourful cities
In the Yucatan peninsula you can find a mesmerising city nicknamed Ciudad Amarilla (Yellow City), with every single one of its buildings painted bright yellow! Contrasted with the deep blue sky, this must be one of the most colourful cities in the world. Take a stroll around the cobbled streets and watch the local people going about their day.4. Hike the Grand Canyon
Of course, we are not talking about the Grand Canyon in the USA. But we are talking about an even longer and deeper canyon located in Chihuahua in the north of Mexico! This quite simply has to be Mexico’s number destination for any self-respecting hiker!5. Discover Mexico City's historic centre
Mexico City is one of the largest cities in the world, and its centre boasts countless world-class museums, art galleries, and attractions. Above all, it really is a truly magnificent place just to walk around – a 15-square-kilometre UNESCO World Heritage Site with more than 1,400 protected colonial buildings!
