It’s that time of year when thousands of US college students descend upon Florida and Cancun in search of the perfect party. But with so much else on offer, there’s more to Mexico than Spring Break Parties and beer-soaked beaches. In fact, it’s fast becoming a top destination with us Brits for a last minute Easter getaway.
Taking it Easy on the Beach
The golden sandy beaches of Mexico are some of the best in the world and remain largely unspoilt. There are miles of beautiful, natural coastline if you want to get some peace and quiet. Or, if you prefer a little people watching on a bustling beach, there are plenty of modern developments that will make you think you’ve landed in a futuristic beach paradise!
There’s also a huge range of hotels available with excellent facilities to suit every taste and budget.
Thrills and Spills on the Water
Those who want a little adrenaline-fuelled fun will be spoilt for choice when it comes to watersports in Mexico. The crystal clear waters of Cancun are perfect for windsurfing, jet-skiing and sailing. If you fancied taking a look under the waves, Mexico also has some incredible dive and snorkelling sites teeming with marine life.
Cancun is one of the few places that you can swim with dolphins on a cheap package holiday. You can learn all about these wonderful creatures before enjoying half an hour in the water with them. It’s an unforgettable experience for adults and children alike.
Mouth-Watering Mexican Food
Delicious traditional dishes are another big draw for last minute holidays to Mexico. There’s nothing better than a spicy little spread to go with those delicious pina coladas. You can venture a little further afield to get a real taste of Mexico, or just go for an international option at one of the many resort restaurants. If you do fancy letting your hair down, you know there’ll be plenty of buzzing bars open for Spring Break!
So Much to See…
Mexico’s so packed with attractions that there’s something different for every day of your holiday. This also means plenty of activities to keep the kids occupied! There are ancient ruins and picturesque villages for you to explore, or you could barter for a bargain at one of the many local craft markets. The Hummer Jungle Tour is a massive hit with budding nature-buffs, and the little ones will also love an amphibious vehicle trip around Xplor Adventure Park.
If this all sounds too much like hard work, there’s nothing wrong with chilling around the hotel pool if you just want to unwind and relax while you’re away. You can do as little or as much as you like on a family holiday to Mexico.
