A trip to savour the vibrant metropolis of Mexico City, the culture of Oaxaca and Chiapas and some relaxation on the Caribbean Coast offers one of the most culturally diverse experiences to be found in Mexico.

The neighbouring state to Oaxaca is Chiapas, an area boasting the archaeological wonders of Toniná, Palenque, Yaxchilán and Bonampak as well as the natural wonders of the mighty Sumidero Canyon and Misol Ha Waterfalls. The place to stay while visiting is Hotel Bo; a design forward hotel just a short walk from the centre of charming San Cristobal de las Casas. The town warrants a few nights stay in order to really experience it's fascinating blend of colonial and indigenous cultures, and a highlight for more adventurous travellers is a boat ride through the mighty Sumidero Canyon.
After all this adventure, a little bit of down time is undoubtedly necessary. Step forward Yucatán Peninsula, where white sandy beaches and the beautifully calm Caribbean sea awaits. Maroma Hotel & Spa is the ultimate place to be pampered, with a luxurious spa, private sandy beach, snorkelling, scuba diving, parasailing and any other water based activities on your doorstep. If visiting between May and September a bucket list photo opportunity is on the cards, as giant marine turtles come ashore to nest.
