Choose a luxury hotel in Mexico with Small Luxury Hotels of the World and discover ancient Mayan culture, brightly painted haciendas, white sandy beaches and dense tropical rainforest.
Luxury city breaks in Mexico
A mansion in Mexico City awash with pink marble is a great base from which to explore the floating gardens of Xochimilco where you can travel in style on a multicoloured barge. In the exclusive Polanco district, gourmets dine on shrimp steak with fiery chipotle peppers and mole sauce. An antique-filled villa in Puerto Vallarta has views of the Sierra Madre jungle looming in the distance beyond terracotta rooftops and the glimmering spires of Guadalupe cathedral.
Luxury beach holidays in Mexico
The cobalt blue waters of the Baja peninsula at San Jose del Cabo are a magnet for scuba divers and snorkellers. In Acapulco you can go deep-sea fishing for marlin and tuna or simply sip añejo tequila in a clifftop bar. Set sail for the tiny Isla Mujeres aboard a luxury yacht or join an exclusive expedition to uninhabited Contoy island to see vast colonies of pelicans. Divers can explore a sunken Spanish galleon hidden deep beneath the waves.
Luxury adventures in the Mexican countryside
At Chichén-Itzá visitors can count the 365 steps of the soaring El Castillo pyramid which doubled as an ancient calendar. Tulum’s Templo de las Pinturas is decorated with masks of the rain god Chac and is the only architectural site with its own beach. Amidst tropical rainforest of the Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve, experience unforgettable encounters with jaguar and puma or simply relax with a chocolate ritual treatment in a boutique Mayan spa.
A holiday in Mexico will have you immersed in 1,000-year-old culture along with the heady scent of bougainvillea. From personal butler service in Zihuatanejo to exclusive suites in Acapulco with private pools, experience the El Dorado of luxury with Small Luxury Hotels of the World.
