Is this the destination for you?

If you like your tacos and enchiladas and want to learn about pre-Hispanic culture, see traditional towns or laze on idyllic beaches, then a trip to Mexico is on the cards. Try to learn some Spanish beforehand. If you don't want to, then holiday north of the border.

You should go if

  • You want to plunge yourself into Mexico City's buzz and culture
  • You love Mexican food
  • The Maya fascinate you and you want to visit their incredible sites.
  • You love idyllic, untouched beaches
  • You prefer modern resorts like Cancun or Acapulco
  • You like the charm of colonial towns

You shouldn't go if

  • You're looking for a destination that's not too touristy
  • You've just started a diet
  • You don't (or don't want to) speak Spanish
  • You think that Mayan culture should stay in the past and pyramids are not your thing
  • You don't have at least three weeks available
