Mexico

Why not book a luxury holiday with Revere Travel to Mexico, this ancient land of the Maya and Aztec civilisations offer a wealth of unforgettable experiences to savour. Discover the spectacular temples of Chichen Itza, Uxmal and Tulum, trek through tropical, jungle backdrops, wander through the tree-lined boulevards of the elegant Spanish colonial towns and cities of Merida and Valladolid and enjoy some of the finest beaches fringed by stylish, contemporary resorts to create your own unique blend of magic, beauty and adventure.

Mexico City is a busy and exciting Latin American capital with plenty of sights to justify spending a few days there. In the city centre alone there are ancient Aztec temple ruins, impressive colonial buildings and the world-renowned Museum of Anthropology. 40km northeast of Mexico City lies the enormous archaeological site of Teotihuacan, once the largest city in the Americas.

Oaxaca is one of Mexico's most beautiful colonial towns, and is close to the Zapotec ruins of Monte Alban and the splendid wall mosaics at Mitla. Also in this region is the pretty colonial city of San Cristobal de las Casas, which has many impressive colonial buildings and a laid-back atmosphere. From San Cristobal it is possible to visit the Mayan ruins of Palenque in half a day. Whilst smaller than Tikal and Copan, Palenque contains some of the finest architecture and has a splendid location in the heart of the jungle. We recommend climbing the main pyramid for stunning views of the site's jungle location.

Farther up the Yucutan Peninsula, which has a huge concentration of Mayan ruins, lie the ruins of Chichen Itza and Uxmal. Chichen Itza is rightly famous for its splendid pyramid, and was recently voted one of the New Seven Wonders of the World, but Uxmal is perhaps even more impressive, and has fewer crowds.

Or if your looking to combine history with relaxation why not try the Riviera Maya, it stretches from Cancun to Tulum along the northern Caribbean Coast of Mexico. The area offers a vast array of natural wonders from stunning beaches and historical Mayan ruins. Highlights that shouldn't be missed include Tulum, which is the only Mayan site located at the beach, where you can enjoy the rich history of this ancient civilization along with panoramic ocean views! You can also explore the marine life of second largest barrier reef in the world by snorkel or scuba. Or just relax on one of the best beaches in the world and soak up the sun.
