Experience wild landscapes, stunning beaches and charming colonial cities
Get ready for your tailor-made holidays in Mexico, a land whose wild Pacific Coast stretches are breath-taking, and hotels along the Caribbean Mayan Riviera are world-class.
Huge and varied, with great swathes of wild landscapes, it is a country of great drama and spectacular landscapes. Rich and fascinating culture, stunning colonial towns, stylish hacienda hotels, Mayan temples, Aztec pyramids and colourful markets all form a rich tapestry.
Our own travels and numerous contacts in the country have uncovered small, privately owned properties and excellent private guides in Mexico’s most unique and least visited areas.
We work with some world-class beach properties and private houses – and these are in very specifically chosen locations, away from mass tourism. We also know that travelling successfully within Mexico needs expert knowledge to plan an itinerary that successfully navigates its complex transport systems.

Luxury Holidays in Mexico
Street food in CDMX
Mexico City’s bustling street food scene is a gastronomic adventure that will excite even the most experienced palate. Sip on a cooling agua fresca and immerse yourself in the warm chatter of vendors as you stroll the myriad market stands: from aromatic tacos al pastor sizzling on the spit and mouth-watering tamales steamed to perfection, every bite tells a story.
Day of the Dead in CDMX
The Day of the Dead festival in Mexico City is a vibrant celebration of life and death. The city pulses with energy as locals and visitors honour the departed through poignant and joyful age-old traditions, journeying through streets alive with marigold-adorned altars, intricately designed sugar skulls and lively processions
Xochimilco & Teotihuacan
The Xochimilco neighbourhood is famous for its ancient canals and floating gardens, the last remnants of a vast water transport system built by the Aztecs. Hop on a brightly painted ‘trajinera’ boat for the best view, then hit the vast archaeological complex of Teotihuacan and climb the towering Pyramid of the Sun.

Getting It Right Every Time
Creating an itinerary
We work in some of the most ecologically and culturally sensitive parts of the world, so have always been conscious of operating in a way that has a positive impact on both the environment and the people.
When you travel with us, we will make a contribution on your behalf to one of the following charities: All About the Light Foundation in Africa, ABOUTAsia Travel & Schools in Cambodia, the Alalay Foundation in Bolivia and Scott Polar Research Institute in the Polar Regions.
If clients are interested, we are always keen to get them involved in local projects and conservation efforts. Whether it be whale counting in Antarctica or rhino relocation in Kenya, you will leave knowing your actions have made a difference.
Our service includes booking and managing all your international and domestic flights. However, you can also book your own international flights if you would prefer. We can also organise private charters and private jet travel for both international and domestic flights.
We have a fantastic VIP service in place to help you navigate the airport and make your journey as smooth and easy as possible. We can collect you from your home, take you to the airport and escort you through check-in and immigration to avoid any queues, straight through to the airport lounge before boarding your flight. The same service can be put in place on your return journey.
We understand that one of the most important factors to our clients is flexibility to give you as much assurance as possible when booking your next trip. We are extremely flexible and are on hand to discuss with you the latest updates on flexibility in any one of our destinations.
We have excellent relationships with a handful of insurance companies who provide various forms of cover. Each one offers a different policy with varying terms and conditions, so we strongly recommend getting a series of quotes and discussing your personal requirements in detail with them in order to find the best one for you.
Booking and travelling with an accredited tour operator is more important than ever. cazenove+loyd is a bonded tour operator and is ATOL protected by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA). Our ATOL number is 3208. This means that the UK government guarantees all funds paid out to a bonded operator and is bound to pay in full if the bond holder is unable to deliver as contracted.

In all of our destinations, sanitation and hygiene in our vehicles and the properties we work with are extensive, with cleaning protocols rigidly followed as well as other necessary safety requirements.
