New York Highlights
New York is a must-visit destination on everyone’s list. A towering cityscape full of iconic buildings that is infused with beautiful green spaces and awash with people, history, colour and some of the best food you’ll ever eat. It’s difficult to overstate how magical ‘The City that Never Sleeps’ really is, but once you’re here, she’s yours to discover.
The City of Landmarks
New York City is home to striking and often revolutionary architecture in the form of glossy skyscrapers such as the Empire State Building, the Art Deco style of the Chrysler Building and the quirkiness of the Flatiron Building. Its famous landmarks also include contemporary museums, expansive parks and historic monuments, all waiting to be explored.
New York City is renowned worldwide for its iconic shopping opportunities, from the legendary elegance of Fifth Avenue and Macy’s - an 11-story department store in Herald Square - to the scores of retro clothing shops and bustling neighbourhood flea markets. So, in our opinion, you may need another suitcase!
There is a melting pot of different cultures, flavours and styles in New York, which is reflected in its ever-revolving cornucopia of restaurants, bars and cafés in all corners of the city. There are long-standing establishments serving up classic dishes within a familial, community atmosphere, as well as Michelin-starred fine dining spots and pop-up food stands - both packing a punch with equally delicious fare.
New York is abundant with once-in-a-lifetime experiences, whether it’s catching a Broadway show, taking flight in a helicopter ride over the Statue of Liberty or riding a horse and carriage through Central Park. Yet, excitement can be found even in the seemingly routine; hail down a famous yellow taxi, navigate the frenetic subway system or gaze through the shop window at Tiffany & Co. for a truly unforgettable experience.
There is no place like Mexico. Known around the world for its unique blend of picture-perfect beaches, eclectic culture, historical curiosities and of course its fiery food, this is a destination on everyone’s bucket list. And once you’ve been, you’ll want to return again and again!
The true definition of paradise. Mexico’s beaches are among some of the best in the world, with an abundance of diving opportunities and various watersports in its turquoise waters, or simply sunbathing and building sandcastles on its endless stretches of pristine shoreline.
Replicated the world over but never as good as the real thing. Visiting Mexico gives you the chance to try some of its most iconic and spiciest cuisines using the freshest local ingredients, traditionally cooked and served up in the most inspirational settings. Think tacos, enchiladas, huevos rancheros, burritos and so much more!
Culture & History
Mexico has a rich and vibrant culture dating back to its fascinating ancient Mayan and Aztec civilisations, and more recently its Spanish influences. From the food, arts, music and dance of its traditional customs to its archaeological marvels and diverse towns and cities, Mexico is a wonder for exploration and discovery.
Big City Life
Mexico boasts big, sprawling cities like Mexico City, Guadalajara and the border town of Tijuana, which are profuse with cultural festivals, historical sites and excellent dining scenes. While its beachside resort cities like Cancún, Tulum and Playa del Carmen along the Riviera Maya are tourist hubs for dynamic nightlife and relaxing daytime vibes.

NEW YORK & MEXICO HOLIDAY FAQS
NEW YORK & MEXICO HOLIDAY FAQS
NEW YORK & MEXICO HOLIDAY FAQS
Planning your multi-centre itinerary? Well, New York and Hawaii might just be the ideal twin-destination experience. The best time to enjoy both locations is spring and autumn. For New York, the city's climate is moderate and attractions less crowded - think cherry blossoms in Central Park and crisp autumn leaves. For Hawaii, anytime is magical, but visiting between mid-April and early June or September to mid-December allows you to dodge the peak tourist seasons, ensuring great weather and more serene beaches.
The time difference between New York and Mexico can vary depending on your specific destination in Mexico. Parts of Mexico, such as Cancun, typically follow Eastern Standard Time (EST) and do not observe Daylight Saving Time. Therefore, the time difference is usually 1 hour ahead of New York. However, other areas of Mexico may follow different time zones.
Quotes for our New York and Mexico multi-centre holidays are guaranteed for up to 36 months before departure - so you can book the getaway you’ve been dreaming of in advance. The rest of your payment can be covered in monthly instalments in the run up to your holiday - it's a stress-free, convenient way to get your holiday booked in.
London Heathrow, London Gatwick, Manchester, and Edinburgh all run direct routes to New York from the UK. Most international flights touch down at John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK), but the city does have another airport - LaGuardia Airport (LGA).
For Mexico, you'll arrive at the airport closest to your chosen destination, which could be Cancun International Airport (CUN), Mexico City International Airport (MEX), or other regional airports. You can fly direct from JFK to a variety of locations in Mexico, including:
- Mexico City (average flight duration: 5 hours 30 minutes)
- Cancún (average flight duration: 4 hours)
- San José del Cabo (average flight duration: 6 hours 30 minutes)
- Puerto Vallarta (average flight duration: 6 hours 5 minutes)
- Monterrey (average flight duration: 4 hours 55 minutes)
If your big city adventure involves soaking up as much sunshine as possible, then you’ll want to visit New York in the peak summer months of July and August. Temperatures can soar to anywhere between 27°C-35°C, and tourism reaches year-round highs.
The hottest months in Mexico fall between May to September, with temperatures between 32°C-37°C. Humidity can often be higher in certain areas, so it can feel a lot hotter than it actually is.
New York City is a haven for those who are easily tempted by a spot of retail therapy. There are so many shopping districts and neighbourhoods to explore, and you’ll find everything from impressive flagship stores to independent, boho boutiques during your New York twin-centre holiday.
Some unmissable spots for shopaholics include Fifth Avenue, and this sublime stretch is adorned with high-end stores including Armani, Cartier, and Gucci - even if you’ll just be window shopping, it’s still worth a visit!
To strike a balance between luxury and purse-friendly purchases, head to SoHo, and when it’s time to pick up souvenirs for loved ones back home, Times Square has you covered with gift shops at every corner. Want to shop like an authentic New Yorker? Head outside of the city centre to the neighbourhoods of Williamsburg in Brooklyn and Greenwich Village (known as ‘The Village’), where thrifty finds and one-of-a-kind pieces are guaranteed.
No visit to New York is complete without a trip to Central Park! Nestled between the Upper East Side and Upper West Side, this expansive urban green space is a peaceful escape from the city's hustle and bustle, with walking and cycling paths, and plenty of picnic spots.
It’s a wellness hub too - you’ll see open-air yoga classes, runners, and outdoor HIIT circuits across different corners of the park. Central Park has featured as the backdrop in endless silver-screen productions too, from the likes of When Harry Met Sally, Elf, and Enchanted. Don’t miss Central Park Zoo on your visit!
If you’re not phased by heights, then we’d definitely recommend taking a helicopter tour of the city. It’s a unique, exhilarating experience and it’ll give you a birds eye view of the city's iconic landmarks, including the Statue of Liberty, Manhattan skyline, and Central Park. It’ll also give you a better idea of how vast the city and its plethora of districts really is.
Mexico has a selection of popular family-friendly resorts to choose from, and they cater to all kinds of preferences. Whether your kids are happy lounging at the beach or they prefer to stay active, you’re certain to find something that suits all of you. We’ve shared some of our go-to destinations for families, giving you a spot of inspiration when planning your Mexico twin-centre holiday:
While Cancun has a reputation for its eclectic nightlife, it’s also the perfect base for families looking to explore Mexico. You’ll find a selection of all-inclusive resorts, packed with kid-friendly amenities, including playgrounds, mini discos, and creches. The resort itself also boasts a range of activities for families, including watersports, snorkelling, and expansive eco-parks.
Puerto Vallarta, a gem on Mexico’s idyllic Pacific Coast, ticks every box imaginable if you’re looking for a relaxing family retreat. In between recharging your batteries, there’s lots of adventures awaiting - take a zip-line over the luscious jungle, go dolphin spotting on a boat tour, and visit the mesmerising Vallarta Botanical Gardens.
Keen to show your kids some authentic Mexican culture? Explore the country's capital, Mexico City, for an immersive tour through its rich history, showcased perfectly by the city’s string of museums and cultural attractions, including Chapultepec Park and the Papalote Museo del Niño.
Another of Mexico’s cultural hotspots, Tulum is ideal for families who want to combine ample beach time with a hearty slice of cultural exploration. Book an excursion around the ancient Mayan ruins overlooking the sea, and imagine what life was like centuries ago…
Playa del Carmen ultra laid-back coastal town is a real all-rounder, where you can lounge by the beach or the pool, and fill the rest of your time with a selection of excursions. There’s a range of theme parks all within easy reach of the resort centre, and the turquoise waters by the beach make for ideal snorkeling spots.
Mexico is rich in historical sites. A few must-visit historical destinations include Chichen Itza and Tulum for Mayan ruins, Mexico City's historic centre for colonial architecture and museums, and Teotihuacan for ancient pyramids.
Wondering what to pack for your multi-centre holidays to New York and Mexico? If you’re visiting New York in spring or fall, make sure you’ve got plenty of layers with you as the temperature will be relatively cooler than during the summer months. If you are visiting between June-August, then it’s the opposite story - you’ll want breathable clothing to help you to stay cool. Regardless of what time of year you visit, you’ll definitely need a pair of comfy, sturdy shoes, as touring the city by foot means you’ll rack up an impressive step count.
In Mexico, you’ll want to pack for a beach holiday, as the temperature will be much warmer. Bring lots of swimwear choices, sunglasses, and a hat, and make sure you’ve got a lightweight jacket for wandering around after sunset.
