Why Mexico is 2012’s Long Haul Destination
After a long exile from Hollywood, Mel Gibson is finally back on the big screen defeating bad guys left, right and centre in the Mexican action romp How I Spent My Summer Vacation. And with the British pound stronger than ever in Mexico, 2012 is the year to grab a sombrero and join Gibson for a holiday experience with a difference.
Mexico breaks really do have something for everyone. This fascinating country straddles tropical temperature zones and stretches across 10,000km of coastline. World-class resorts offer all-inclusive Mexico holidays with every luxury under the sun, while adventure awaits travelers looking to wander off the beaten tourist path.
The playas in Mexico offer a taste of paradise for sun-worshippers. Palm-fringed white sand melts into sparkling turquoise waters, with plenty of world-class watersports to keep adrenaline junkies entertained.

Try cheap holidays to Cancun on the Caribbean coast for tranquil lagoon bathing during the day and vibrant nightlife when the sun sets. If you’re looking to experience some Mexican culture while topping up your tan, head to Tulum to see spectacular coastal Maya ruins on one of the country’s best stretches of sand. Snorkel with whale sharks at Isla Holbox or head to Isla Cozumel for scuba diving in the watery depths. Surfing enthusiasts will be amazed by the waves in the ‘Mexican Pipeline’ on the Oaxaca coast, where you can relax in a hammock after enjoying an exhilarating day.
Activity-based and community tourism is thriving in Mexico. It’s no wonder, with everything there is to discover in its distinctive landscapes and tiny pueblos scattered across the vast countryside. If you’re looking to exercise your exploration skills this year, pack a rucksack and head to Monterrey for challenging canyoneering, or to Oaxaca to hike in breathtaking cloud forests. Food lovers can learn from the locals with cooking lessons in the Veracruz countryside, or check out Mexico’s new fusion cuisine in one of the sprawling urban jungles.
With such myriad experiences on offer, why not hit the road and see more of Mexico? Hire a car at the US border and take one to four weeks to explore the Transpeninsular Highway at your leisure. From world-class surf at Ensenada to the wild Vizcaíno desert, this classic route will take you across a kaleidoscope of rural and urban landscapes, with a change of pace and new taste in Mexican culture at every turn.
