Steamy jungles and tropical beaches meet ancient history and a vibrant culture, while volcanos loom large on the horizon and lush lagoons burst with life - Mexico is teeming with adventures perfect for the whole family. Take a step back in time as you explore the vast city of Teotihuacan, near Mexico City. This pre-Columbian marvel stretches for miles, and includes the 210ft high Pyramid of the Sun, (which is the world's third largest outside Egypt) where priests offered human sacrifices. More Mayan temples are scattered through the jungle, while other wonders, more contemporary in nature, wait on the Pacific Coast – think stupendous surfing,
whale watching and unparalleled diving. Festivals are something the whole gang will love – from the colourful Day of the Dead celebrations in November, to Christmas, complete giant star shaped piñatas. For a slower pace retreat to the white sand beaches of the Caribbean coast or the Baja Peninsula, for sun-snoozes and splashing in the waves. Mexico family holidays have a generous sprinkle of something for everyone, meaning the whole family will come away with memories to last a lifetime.

I'd highly recommend your service to anyone who asked and your personal note at the start of the trip was appreciated. Having access to a contact in Mexico was also good, especially because of the time difference.

Known for its pristine beaches of Cancun, Los Cabos and Baja California, you may choose to explore Mexico's endless Pacific or Caribbean coastlines on your luxury family holiday to Mexico. First stop: the palm-fringed, fern-covered Riviera Maya. Perched on the Yucatan peninsula, it is the place for swimming in azure cenotes and staying in fishing lodges or amping up the luxury with a stay at an all-inclusive luxury resort. The Riviera Maya caters to all travellers and - more importantly - their families too.
Dig beneath the surface a little (or perhaps, with its Ancient Mayan Ruins, above the surface in this case) and you'll find that Mexico has an intriguing cultural. Just a short flight from the nation's capital you'll find, nestled among Mexico's mountainous highlands, the beautiful states of Oaxaca and Chiapas. Home to some of the country's steaming rainforests, bustling marketplaces and a handful of its remarkable archaeological sites, Mexico's southern coastline is oozing with character.
Begin in the colonial city of Oaxaca and watch your children's eyes wander as you amble through its stone alleyways and vibrant marketplaces by day, and hunker down in an 18th century colonial house by night. Venture just outside the city centre and you'll discover the impressive Monte Alban archaeological site; not the greatest playground in the world, but it'll definitely do. Next - Sharky & George packs to hand to keep your youngsters entertained for the journey - move to Chiapas, a state brimming with family-friendly activities. From the charming cobbled streets to its marketplaces filled with a coruscating kaleidoscope of colours, the state of Chiapas has it all.
