Trip Highlights

•   You've never seen true colour until you've been to a Mexican market. Practice your bargaining skills, snap some photos and pick up traditional handicrafts at the markets in multiple destinations

•   Eat your way through arty Oaxaca. Mole, mezcal and chocolate for dinner? Delicioso!

•   Escape the Mexican heat in San Cristobal de las Casas. This old-world town is surrounded by ancient tribal villages that have retained their traditional customs and roots

•   Discover the colonial history of charming Merida. Loaf around in leafy plazas, get cultural at a museum or work your salsa shimmy with a friendly local

•   Chichen Itza is one the New Seven Wonders of the World. It's not hard to see why - strolling around the ancient Mayan ruins feels pretty wondrous

•   Away from the thumping nightlife of Cancun, splash around, sun-bake and play on Playa del Carmen's white sandy beaches

Itinerary & Notes
Bienvenidos a Mexico City!

Your adventure begins with a welcome meeting at 6 pm, but if you arrive early then perhaps head to the Zocalo – the massive central square – and check out the Aztec ruins and colonial architecture. There are also plenty of parks, smaller plazas and gardens to relax in and adjust to your new life in Mexico.
