Looking for a luxurious getaway? All-inclusive perhaps? We know that sometimes, jetting off and indulging in a 5-star resort is just what the doctor ordered. And with the new year in our sights, we’ve listed some of our favourite resorts that will offer pure relaxation, sun, sea and unlimited food and drink. What else do you need?!
Whether it’s an adult-only getaway or for the whole family, Mexico offers it all. So, take a look below for destination and resort inspiration – we’ll have you away in no time!
Located in the southern part of North America, Mexico is famous for its delicious food, drink and the vibrant festivals that take place during the year, including Día de Muertos (Day of the Dead) and the not-to-be-missed Carnival, taking place late February/early March. If you like music, dancing and fireworks, it’s the festival for you!
Did we mention that Mexico can be visited all year round too? So if you’re experiencing the winter blues, look no further. As well as that, Mexico boasts long stretches of white, sandy beaches and beautiful coastal resorts that we know you’re craving!
