Explore the Yucatán peninsula with its ancient Mayan ruins covered by lush jungle, its aquamarine cenotes and its heavenly beaches off the Caribbean gulf. Go whale watching in Baja California or discover colourful silver-mining towns with their cobbled streets and colonial plazas and churches. Mexico’s spirit burns brightest during its vibrant and colourful fiestas – much like the day of the dead, their long-held traditions will always shine through any turbulent past.
Head to the heart of the country and to the bustling metropolis that is Mexico City – home to lucha libre – with its vibrant craft markets, colonial architecture and endless museums. Stroll down the street in the footsteps of Frida Kahlo, as you pass by local street vendors selling mouth-watering tacos, the sweetest of churros, homemade rich chocolate mole and spicy salsas – a real feast for the senses. Make your way out of town to the shining beacon that is the archaeological site of Teotihuacán and climb to the top of the Pyramid of the Sun before taking a stroll down the Avenue of the Dead.
The locals here are among the most welcoming and humble on the planet, and their love and pride for their country is infectious. By the end of your journey you will be head over heels, and Mexico will always leave you hungry for more.
