Mexico…is one of the world’s treasures which has provided tonnes of unforgettable travel experiences for so many people – from backpackers to holidaymakers to newlyweds alike.
Despite this, Mexico is not a destination that is top-of-mind for too many people when they are planning their holidays. We cannot figure out why, as it is up there among our favourite destinations! We have sent many of our customers there, and they come back vowing to return again someday. It’s true; Mexico is nothing short of an addictive holiday destination. We can only describe it as being drenched with Caribbean lifestyle coupled with a more commercialised American flair. Temperatures during the year typically range from about 30-36 degrees.
There seems to be a common myth that it is difficult to get into Mexico. Let us set that straight – Irish passport holders do NOT require a visa or any kind of vaccinations. Plus in Summer 2016 Abbey Travel are offering direct flights from Dublin to Cancun.
So you decide to visit Mexico. But the question is what is there to see?
Let’s give you the lowdown!
Cancun is one of our favourite places in Mexico. It’s famous for its many kilometres of pristine white beaches, crystalline waters and margaritas. Cancun is less reserved than the rest of Mexico, and there are tonnes of places to find a nice restaurant to savour an authentic burrito, fajita, chilli con carne, chimichangas, or bowl of nachos. As Caribbean destinations go, Cancun in unequalled in its ability to offer natural beauty (its vibrant exotic flowers are particularly impressive), nuggets of cultural treasures, and loads of relaxation and leisure amenities. In fact, probably one of the most impressive things about Cancun is its incredible coral reefs which are perfect for snorkelling, scuba-diving, sport-fishing, and jungle tours. You can also visit Cancun’s interactive aquarium and numerous archaeological sites, go to see a folklore ballet… hell you can even treat yourself to a sunset cruise!
Riviera Maya and Playas del Carmen
We also love the area of Riviera Maya, and in particular, its resort of Tulum. Tulum is an archaeological zone and is a true Mexican treasure. The Caribbean Sea bathes its shores, whose waters are ideal for a lazy swim while appreciating Riviera Maya's architectural wizardry and archaeological delights.
Playas del Carmen is another popular tourist area located in Eastern Mexico, and it is about a 60 minute drive from Cancun. Playas del Carmen has something for everyone – eco parks (think zip lining, snorkelling and underground river adventures), swimming with dolphins and whale sharks, cenotes (fresh, crystal clear waters surrounded by impressive rock formations, stalactites and stalagmites), golfing, and of course a hopping nightlife…
