Mexico now has 29 UNESCO World Heritage accredited sites, making it a spectacular holiday destination.
The addition of San Miguel de Allende, and its enchanting colonial architecture, takes the country's number of World Heritage cities to ten, while the nearby Jesus Nazareno de Atotonilco Sanctuary has been recognised for its 18th-century chapel, adorned with exquisite wall paintings.
The third of Mexico's latest additions is the Monarch Butterfly Biosphere Reserve. Here, visitors are witness to the migration of rare butterfly species from the USA during the winter months.
Mexico is gradually becoming a popular destination for British travellers, with nearly 300,000 people visiting the country in 2007 alone. Heathrow Airport currently runs regular flights to Mexico City, the nation's main hub of activity.
For those looking to experience the vibrancy, history and culture of Mexico, an overnight stay at the Heathrow Sheraton Skyline Hotel will be the perfect start to your getaway.
Based just over one mile from the airport, here you can enjoy a relaxing night's sleep before embarking on your flight.
