Mexico is Central America’s giant, where activities and experiences are as varied as the country’s diverse landscapes and heritage. The Mayan site of Chichen Itza is a highlight, its ancient ballcourt, imposing pyramids and impressive sinkhole - where many treasures have been discovered - offering an insight into Mexico’s enigmatic ancient civilisations. For more contemporary culture, explore Mexico City on an art tour or sail the canals of Xochimilco in a colourful gondola-like tajinera boat. Colonial history is revealed in San Cristóbal de las Casas, which is best seen on a walking tour, while in the Sea of Cortez you can spot blue and fin whales who come to the area to calve.
