Caribbean, Bermuda & Mexico / Mexico

Lucy Halfhead, Travel Editor at Harper’s Bazaar

"From Aztec civilizations, to the revolutionary art of Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera, Mexico’s rich cultural history is even more thrilling against a diverse backdrop of palm-fringed coasts, misty jungles and vibrant cities. It’s easy to see why Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton fell in love on the Pacific beaches of the Baja Peninsula, but venture inland to explore the crumbling palaces and grand churches of Oaxaca, fuelled by chilli hot chocolate, or, for the brave, perhaps a glass of Mezcal. The sensory adventure continues at the ancient ruins of Teotihuacan, and the magnificent Mayan city of Chichen Itza. As the Mexican novelist Carlos Fuentes put it, his country ‘has a genius for survival, seduced by the past into the future... the greatness of Mexico is that its history is alive and well’."
