Mexico travel adverts

Y5C have been writing travel adverts on the destination Mexico as part of their Mexcellent project. Here are some extracts:


Welcome to wonderful Mexico, a place where all your dreams come true. Mexico is surrounded by crystal clear waters and some of the best diving in the world. Stroll up the beach with soft silky sands under your feet. Or explore the Mayan ruins; try out your salsa skills and much, much, more!
By Charles


Colourful Cancun is one of the countless tourist attractions in Mexico.  The beaches are fantastic in Mexico! Sapphire waters; soft as silk sand; hot sunshine and swaying palm leaves are easily found here. So take out your deck chair, lay back and relax.

Why not stay in the five-star Hilton Hotel in Cancun, Mexico? This luxurious hotel has everything from fabulous views to brilliant beaches.  The all-inclusive Hilton Hotel has an amazing beachfront with a beach hut where you can refresh from the glare of the sun with the amazing drinks provided. Visit the stunning beachfront and see the crystal-clear sea while the roaring waves fall onto the silky soft sand. You can relax in the comfy hammocks and feel all your stress fly away.  Hilton hotel is the perfect place to surf and scuba dive in the bright blue waters! With a restaurant that has the best chefs in the world and a kids club where your children can play, this is definitely the perfect family holiday! After you feast on the mouth-watering delicacies in Hilton hotel’s world class restaurant, you can dance in their nightclubs filled with Spanish party passion. So why don’t you come now?

Mexico isn’t just beaches, there are wonderful waterfalls waiting to be explored (and taken a selfie with). It is a place to unwind and cool off from the hot, sunny weather. Agua Azul is famous with locals for its stunning scenery and shallow waters as well as its peaceful landscape.

As you get to the Urique Canyon, you’ll see astonishing views. At the very top, you will find a beautiful first class restaurant. Here you can eat as much as you want!! There are so many activities to do like: climbing, cycling, hiking and many, many more. It’s a perfect place for your holiday in Mexico!!
