Best places to visit in November

For us Brits, November is the month when the clocks go back, Christmas lights go up and temperatures fall into single figures. It’s no wonder we crave winter sun…

Mexico is a great option in November. Not only is the weather amazing, but the first two days of the month are spent celebrating the Day of the Dead Festival (Dia de Muertos). It’s a public holiday and is dedicated to remembering loved ones who have passed on. Janitzio in Lake Pátzcuaro, and Xochimilco in Mexico City are the best places to join in the festivities. 

A beginner’s guide to Cancun

If the word ‘beach’ is the first thing that pops to mind when thinking of your ideal holiday, then Cancun needs to be on your to-visit list. While it is home to everything that is associated with a well-known tourist city, the thing that makes it stand out from the rest is its impeccable world-class beach front.
Peaked your interest? Here’s some basic information you’ll need when visiting Cancun for the first time.

The main attractions

We have established that Cancun offers one of the best coastlines in the world. But Cancun does have more to discover than just turquoise Caribbean waters (if you can be torn away from a day relaxing on the warm sand). Beach-bums make up the largest percentage of holiday personalities in Cancun. Thankfully there’s enough room for everyone and Cancun’s beachy shoreline doesn’t suffer from the cramped feeling that many other beach-cites are overwhelmed with. That’s not to say that the temperament of the beach doesn’t alter as you walk further along – if you’re after seclusion head to the north, but if you’re after bustling waves, stroll along to the eastern side.

Night-time entertainment

Cancun literally does offer every type of nightlife imaginable. Choose to party into the early hours with world-renowned nightclubs, or spend the night being awed by the classical talent at the ballet.

Hotel and accommodation

Like most of the Caribbean, Cancun is a haven for all-inclusive resorts. However, each resort still has its own unique offerings and personal touches. If you’re after somewhere lively we would recommend the Hard Rock Hotel Cancun; if you’re looking for an elegant adults-only hotel then check out Secrets the Vine Cancun; if you’re after a spa-break kick up your feet at the Dreams Riviera Cancun Resort & Spa; or if you’re seeking family-friendly activities you and your family should consider the Moon Palace Golf Resort.

Getting there

Cancun is home to its own dedicated airport and is one of the biggest airports in Latin America. British holidaymakers can fly directly from Glasgow and London Gatwick with Thomas Cook and British Airways.

When to go

Like all Central American destinations, Cancun has near-perfect weather from December through to April. The weather in other months is still sunny and many holidaymakers opt for the summer months.
