ABOUT MEXICO

 

Only in Mexico  
Did you know that… 
One of the largest communities of whale sharks in the world meets from June through August off the tip of Isla Holbox. We can help get you nose to nose with one. Or several. Bring your camera.
Mexico has 29 UNESCO World Heritage Sites, the most in the American Continent. From the blue agave fields of the town of Tequila to the cobblestone streets of Guanajuato or the ancient archaeological site of Monte Albán, we’ve got (most of) them covered.
Chocolate, or xocolatl, crossed the ocean from Mexico to Europe after the Conquest, soon becoming a very esteemed beverage among noblemen. Today it’s the main ingredient in some very delightful treatments at some of our choice member hotel spas.
The second largest coral reef in the world lies under the warm waters of the Caribbean right off the coast of the Riviera Maya. Spend the day swimming through one of Nature’s finest aquariums; spend the evening relaxing in barefoot elegance.
Mexico is the world’s largest producer of refined silver and the biggest deposit in the world is in the state of Zacatecas. Stay with us in the heart of the historic downtown capitol and ask us where to find the best silver shops. We’ll be happy to oblige.
Mexico is one of 17 so-called mega-diverse countries in the world and also ranks second in the world in ecosystems. We’ll take you from breezy mountain hideouts to deluxe tropical getaways in one trip. Or you can come back for more.
With some 6,000 miles of coastline, Mexico offers long stretches of untouched beachfront, populated coves bursting with energy, tiny fishing villages and bustling cities by the bay. Pick a place; we’ll hang your hat.
The Great Pyramid of Cholula is the largest pyramid as well as the largest monument ever constructed anywhere in the world, almost one third larger than that of the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt. Nearby, our member hotel is much smaller—and much cozier.
At the time of the Spanish conquest in 1521, the Aztec capital city of Tenochtitlan was among the largest cities in the world with some 200,000 inhabitants. Today, Mexico City is again one of the largest cities in the world. We provide perfect pieds-à-terre from which to explore its many gifts.
Mexico has one of the most varied cuisines in the world: it boasts 31 states and one Federal District—each with its own specialties. Mix Pre-Columbian influences with a healthy dose of European flavors plus a dash of nouvelle cuisine and you have a feast for the senses. Hint: some of our member hotel owners are also chefs with a penchant for fresh local ingredients.
