Where is it?
Stretching all the way from the USA in the north to Guatemala and Belize in the south, Mexico is the glue that links the North and South American continents together. The country's two million square kilometres pack in everything from mega cities and tiny pueblos to ancient jungle and Mayan relics. It has tropical forests, dry deserts, fertile valleys and snow-capped mountains. But, for holidaymakers at least, the coastal areas hold the main appeal.
Since Mexico's terrain is extremely varied, so is the weather. On the coast however, the climate is generally balmy year-round, but some months are rainy and others dry.
Why is it unique?
At 758,400 square miles, it's a bit less than three times the size of Texas. In that vast territory, stretching from the Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico to the Pacific, you have a wide variety of climates, cuisines, cultures, landscapes, and lifestyles.
Head to the white-sand beaches and warm aquamarine Caribbean waters of the Riviera Maya and you're likely to dine in beach restaurants on ceviche (seafood marinated in citrus) and fish tacos in the shade of a palapa (open-sided structure thatched with palm leaves). That's world's away from the narrow cobblestoned streets and restored colonial homes, grand cathedrals and churches, and immaculately manicured plazas of San Miguel de Allende's UNESCO World Heritage centro, where you can enjoy a café con leche (coffee with cream) in a courtyard built 300 years ago.
Why should I go?
Beyond the Caribbean Coast's lively tourist resorts and built-up towns, there's an untamed jungle waiting to be explored. A journey into the Yucatan Peninsula's outback can involve speed boating through mangrove swamps and hiking along rainforest paths, whereas holidays to Mexico's Pacific Coast shake up the traditional beach break by throwing in abseiling and zip-lining in the Sierra Madre Mountains amongst other adventurous activities. Trips run from all the main resorts in the area, so it's really easy to sign up.
