Bargain Mexico

Mark and David's verdict:

Both the Caribbean and Pacific coasts of Mexico have world-class resorts set on superb beaches with prices significantly lower than in rival holiday destinations. Besides affordable luxury, visitors can tap into a rich seam of culture, from remarkable Mayan archaeological sites and colourful Indian markets to Spanish colonial towns.

Recommended tour operator: The Holiday Place

The Holiday Place says

Mexico is one of our favourite tropical beach destinations but it’s also home to a vibrant and colourful culture, riveting history and ancient treasures. We also think that Mexico offers the best value for money when it comes to a long-haul holiday.

  • Culture and cuisine
  • Luxury beach hotels
  • Multi-centre holidays

We offer a fabulous selection of luxury beach holidays on the Caribbean and Pacific coasts to suit all budgets as well as multi-centre adventures in Mexico.

The best known resort of Cancun boasts sparkling white sands dotted by luxury resorts. Cancun Beach, known as “the strip”, offers an amazing array of nightlife, restaurants, water parks and activities. It’s a great choice if you want to enjoy a lively resort atmosphere. Cancun is also the most popular choice for family holidays in Mexico.

To discover more about Mexico’s indigenous Mayan civilisation – from the luxury of a beach resort – we recommend a stay on the Riviera Maya, where you are close to breathtaking Mayan pyramids as well as fantastic snorkelling, wildlife tours and eco-experiences.

Pretty Puerto Vallarta oozes character whilst the more exclusive resort town of Los Cabos on the Baja Peninsula is the place for ultimate pampering in world-class hotels and spas – it’s a favourite celebrity haunt.

We offer a wide choice of all-inclusive hotels in all the resorts, ideal if you want to stick to your budget.

Our expert team can tailor-make your own private tour. Combine a few days in dazzling Mexico City with a beach stay or focus on Mexico’s astonishing cultural legacy with a private tour. We can take you to the Tetihuacan Pyramids, the Guadalupe Shrine and inspiring cities like Guadalajara, Oaxaca, Tehuantepec, Campeche, Merida, Queretaro, Guanajuato, Morelia, San Cristobal de Las Casas or Patzcuaro for example.
