Best months to visit
The best time to visit Mexico is from December to April – during these months, you can enjoy the country’s driest and warmest weather. After a quieter period to dodge the crowds? May and June will be perfect for you. Mexico's rainy season runs from May/June to October each year.
Known for tantalising tastes, ancient ruins and tropical beaches galore, Mexico has it all. The perfect destination for a luxury wellness retreat, it’s a country alive with spirituality among the Mayan ruins, and blessed with beautiful and healing nature: rivers, waterfalls and mountains. From the azure waters of the cenotes - underwater sinkholes ideal for swimming and snorkelling, to the pink salt lagoons of Las Coloradas, one of the country’s most photographed sights in the Rio Lagartos Biosphere Reserve on the Gulf of Mexico, the country’s mesmerising landscapes will captivate you. Feed your sense of adventure by diving with manta rays and sharks off the coast of Los Cabos and the Baja Peninsula in the west, or swimming in the calm waters of the Gulf of Mexico, then fulfil your soul by engaging in traditional Mayan spiritual practises, which use medicinal plants to achieve harmony between body and spirit.
Top places to visit in Mexico for health & wellness
Immerse yourself in the rich Mayan history and culture of the Yucatán state, home to one of the New Seven Wonders of the World: Chichén Itzá. When you’re finished exploring the remnants of ancient Mayan civilisation, cool off with a dip in one of the region’s many cenotes- beautiful sinkholes or caves filled with clear, blue water, or visit the stunning Las Coloradas- naturally pink salt lagoons.
With gorgeous aquamarine waters edged by white, sandy beaches, stretching over 135km of Mexico’s Caribbean coastline, Riviera Maya is the epitome of paradise. There’s no better place from which to experience this bliss than with a luxury wellness retreat at Chablé Maroma, with beach yoga and cleansing Temazcal ceremonies at your fingertips.

The white limestone bed of this 31 mile lagoon emphasises its clarity, for hypnotizingly crystal waters just waiting to be explored. Spend your days swimming, snorkelling, or navigating the lush mangroves, staying in sustainable luxury at Habitas Bacalar.
