MEXICO WITH A&K

It was a true taste of Mexico, a treasured memory - and recipe. When our guest asked for a unique glimpse of daily life in Oxaca, we happily arranged a visit to a local family. The convivial afternoon evolved into a home cooking lesson using chicken, beer and chocolate: an authentic mole to amaze guests back in the UK.

You expect surprises and unique moments when you travel to Mexico with A&K. As well as ensuring you're travelling in the best vehicles - you'll appreciate our 4WDs on wilder country roads - and arranging seamless regional travel, we use top-notch, highly qualified guides with unrivalled local or specialist knowledge and longstanding contacts.

Our team can arrange unforgettable one-off experiences from candlelit suppers next to ancient pyramids swaddled by jungle, to private historical tours with noted Aztec historians, to swimming with whale sharks, the world's largest fish, in warm tropical water? They're all possible.

In fact, take an Abercrombie & Kent luxury Mexican holiday in 2014 or 2015 and we'll show you that whale sharks are just one super-sized flake in the Riviera Maya's multi-coloured blizzard of underwater life. The peninsula's famed for its translucent Caribbean and dazzlingly white sand, but is equally spectacular inland, with the atmospheric Mayan ruins of Uxmal, Chichén Itzá and Calakmul, alongside beautiful colonial Merida and UNESCO listed Campeche.

You can even swim, as one returning guest recommended, in the Yucatan's famous cenotes, sinkholes the Mayan believed to be entrances to the underworld. 'Don't miss it,' she recommended, 'It's so different to the Caribbean.'

As is the Pacific coast with its verdant hills, wave-lashed golden sands where the surfing - particularly around Puerto Escondido - and whale watching are outstanding. You can walk over Puerto Vallarta's atmospheric cobbles, sample Acapulco's reborn cool, or the glorious beaches and deserts of Baja California.

Of course an A&K holiday also takes you in to the interior. There's Taxco's silver merchants, Cuernavaca's museums and Copper Canyon's drama - it has four times the volume of America's largest hole - and the thriving, pulsating capital of Mexico City, sprawling out from its famous Zócalo Plaza towards the Aztec pyramids of Teotihuacan. Even without chocolate chicken, Mexico is a truly extraordinary destination.
