Why should you travel to Mexico this winter?
Published: 10 December 2014
If you are fed-up of the cold weather, continuous rain showers and miserable days here in the UK, and are considering a holiday to warmer climes, consider Mexico! This delightful country makes for an exceptional and exciting travel destination, and the Flexicover Team tells you why:
When it’s winter here for us, it means warm weather and sunshine in Mexico making it a great winter sun destination. A combination of diverse landscapes, from beautiful coastlines of Baja California, the iconic cactus-strewn deserts, Mayan village and palm-smothered beaches. Mexico has a charm that is second to none and in December it’s the perfect place for both beach holidays as well as sightseeing but do make sure you’ve packed your sunscreen!
Between December and February there are various celebrations that take place across the country. Tourists and locals alike are in good spirits and the holiday season is marked with vibrancy, an array of flavours, colours and aromas. Apart from the national celebrations of Christmas and New Year, you will also find the celebrations of the Mexican Posadas that takes place during the lead up to Christmas. All across the country, streets are filled with lively processions with chanting and songs and individuals are dressed in wonderful colourful clothes with children carrying poinsettias. This represents Mary and Joseph’s biblical search for a place to stay in Bethlehem. A wonderful time to visit!
Wildlife at its peak
Wild life enthusiasts will be in for a treat if they visit Mexico at this time of year. The annual Monarch butterfly migration is an amazing phenomenon when millions of them fill the sky as they move from the colder, northern climates and travel south to warmer climes. Some will travel as far as 3,000 miles to reach their winter home. As well as this, you also have the opportunity to go whale watching. Experience the Gray Whales migrating from the cold waters near Alaska to warmer waters near Mexico to breed and bear their calves. Wonderful, timeless memories! Don’t forget your camera!
Mexico really is a great winter sun destination and a perfect escape from our cold British weather. Wherever you decide to travel this winter, remember to book your Flexicover travel insurance.
