Hola Mexico

13 days

The one with the perfect mix of beach time, history, and culture

We’re totally in love with Mexico and you will be too, after exploring its dazzling beaches, fiery eats, and perfectly preserved historic sites. This 13-day tour takes you from the buzzing streets of Mexico City to the snow-white sands of Playa Del Carmen, with stays in a selection of boutique accommodation from traditional hacienda-style buildings to eco-bungalows right by the ocean. Walk in the footsteps of the Mayans at Chichen Itza, sip smoky mezcal at an Oaxacan distillery, swim in the jewel-like Cenote, breakfast with the locals in an indigenous village, and turn the heat up on the palm-fringed beaches of Tulum.


Highlights include

Cenote
Chichen Itza
Mezcal distillery
Zincantan community
Palenque ruins
Agua Azul waterfalls
Chicanná ruins
Bacalar Lake
Canyon of Sumidero cruise
Party in Playa Del Carmen
