  • Experience Your Best Mexico Vacation

    Guidebooks only tell a miniscule portion of Mexico's story. Beyond the infinity pools and mega-resorts lies a country as ancient, complex and mysterious as its Mayan ruins. The spirit of Mexico lives on in centuries-old cathedrals, spritely street vendors and colorful outdoor markets. From the densely populated Mexico city to water wonderlands Cancun, Cozumel, Puerto Vallarta and Los Cabos, a novel's worth of experiences awaits, whether you're craving the arts, adventure, food or la playa.

    Leave it to Orbitz to map out your Mexico vacation with top 10 attractions, the best time to go and insider tips. And then let's all pour ourselves a shot of tequila.

Best time to take a vacation to Mexico

  • Blessed with bountiful sunshine, Mexico attracts the most travelers between late December and Easter, traditionally the high season, while the rest of the year is low season. Expect prices to be higher during the holidays and especially during Spring Break, when American co-eds blow off steam South of the Border at any of the sprawling beach resorts.

    Be on watch during hurricane season -- typically June through October -- especially if you're headed to the Yucatan Peninsula. Summers are especially hot and humid, so dress appropriately if you're planning to be outdoors.

Insider tips for Mexico travel

  • Moon Palace in Cancun

    If your plan is pure R&R, find an all-inclusive that functions as its own town. Moon Palace in Cancun anticipates every possible need, whether it's a babysitter while parents lounge at the swim-up bar or the 15 restaurants and 12 bars for endless grazing and cocktailing.

  • Rosewood Mayakoba

    Clear the schedule. Leave the iPhone at home. You'll be thinking about neither at Rosewood Mayakoba, the most heavenly resort on the Yucatan Peninsula. The luxury property had us at Sense, a spa on its very own island.

  • El Farallon at Capella Pedregal

    Mexico is rich in alfresco dining choices, but none are as majestic as El Farallon at Capella , which is reminiscent of a coastal seafood market. Cliff-side tables are lit up by white lights and overlook the stunning sea, while mounds of ice hold the fresh catches of the day. If you're planning on popping the question, make sure to ask for a private table on the beach.

  • Cabs

    At all costs, arrange your airport transfer before you land. The shuttle and taxi drivers tend to be an aggressive bunch, and you'll be glad that you don't have to haggle for a ride.

  • Karaoke Bar

    Brave the stage at Playa del Carmen’s Karaoke Bar, which also serves fantastic local beer.

  • Centro Mayo

    Catch the latest films at Centro Mayo cinemas, located within the Centro Mayo Shopping Mall on the outskirts of Playa del Carmen.

  • Ah Cacao

    Indulge in a rich café-latte or espresso specially brewed at the scrumptious chocolate themed Ah Cacao Chocolate Café.

  • Chiapas Roasted Coffee

    Chill out at the wifi-equipped Coffee Stop, which serves real Chiapas roasted coffee and fresh pastries.

  • John Gray's Place

    John Gray’s Place is famous for delectable crab cakes, fresh cilantro garnishes, and exceptional wine served in classy ambiance.
