Mexico is an extraordinary country filled with colour and vitality, offering a dazzling mix of culture, intriguing history and beautiful landscapes. In Mexico you can discover ancient history, fascinating indigenous cultures, abundant music and art, incredible nature and wildlife and, of course, glorious beaches. From the vast and frenetic metropolis of Mexico City to the jungles of Chiapas, a visit to Mexico is a voyage through the living veins of a fascinating nation. Cities stand proud in the colonial heartland, matched only by spectacular archaeological sites of the pre-Aztec, Aztec and Mayan cultures. Head west to the colonial towns of San Miguel de Allende, Morelia or Guadalajara, Mexico's second largest city and home of tequila and mariachi bands. Further west the Pacific Coast languishes, basked in sunshine, with a collection of luxury hotels with pampering spas, expansive beaches and even whale-watching off the coast of Baja California. The hinterland is just as breath taking with rivers and waterfalls, forest and canyons –great places for hiking and riding –and you can explore further with a train ride through the Copper Canyon. South of the capital, you can find peace and tranquillity in tropical Chiapas, centre of ancient civilisations and the gateway to the Mayan heart of Mexico. Further south still into the Mundo Maya is the Yucatán Peninsula, with the celebrated Mayan city of Chichén Itzá, as well as glorious idyllic white beaches and luxurious boutique hotels.

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 Oaxaca, 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 meal 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 2016, 2017 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.
