Where to Go in Mexico

Flight Centre’s beach holidays take you to the best of Mexico – not to mention the country’s best beaches. Families will love the kid-friendly Riviera Maya, a tropical paradise where the diving and snorkelling is second-to-none; it is home to a big chunk of the Mesoamerican Reef after all. For sophistication, there’s the sparkling blue Bahia de Banderas along Puerto Vallarta’s Pacific Coast, or the crushed-coral beaches of Isla Mujeres, where lucky travellers will spot migrating whale sharks. Then there’s Los Cabos, on the Baja California peninsula, boasting sun-drenched serenity, not to mention great cetacean-spotting during the annual Festival of Whales.

Mexico Holiday Types

Not all beach holidays are made equal in Mexico. When you book from Flight Centre’s Escapes range you can choose between luxury, all-inclusive, honeymoon or family-friendly. Plus, we also offer escorted tours of Mexico too where you can take in more than just Mexico’s pristine coastline. For more ideas, see our Mexico holiday types below.
