The main UK school holidays are one of Mexico’s two high seasons, meaning peak prices. May to September is also very hot and humid in the coastal resorts. So with younger kids in particular, you might like to think about getting your summer sun a little closer to home! If you do go at this time of year, choosing a hotel or resort with childcare facilities where they can play indoors at the hottest times of day is a very good idea. On-site watermarks are also a boon. See our special offers and latest deal with all-inclusive activity holiday partner Club Med.
