Highlights of Mexico

On this exciting introduction to Mexico, travel from the sprawling capital through local indigenous villages and beautifully preserved colonial towns into the Maya heartlands of the Yucatan Peninsula. Discover the pre-Colombian pyramids of Teotihuacan before journeying to three different Maya sites, culminating in the famous ruins at Chichen Itza. Aside from the rich history, Mexico's natural highlights are not to be missed, and we explore the vast Sumidero Canyon by boat, as well as bathing in the cascading blue waters of the Agua Azul Falls.

Trip highlights

  • Palenque - Arguably the most enchanting of the ancient Maya ruins, set in dense jungle
  • San Cristobal de las Casas - A beautiful highland colonial market town, surrounded by modern day Maya villages
  • Chichen Itza - One of the New Seven Wonders of the World, and an astounding display of grand Maya-Toltec architecture
  • Sumidero Canyon - A towering gorge, snaking through the Chiapas state
  • Misol Ha waterfall - A perfect bathing spot underneath the 30m high drop

Itinerary

Itineraries on some departure dates may differ, please select the itinerary that you wish to explore.

Day 1 - Join trip in Mexico City

Check-in at our hotel in Mexico City. Modern day Mexico City was built on top of the Aztec capital Tenochtitlan by the Spaniards, after their conquest of the city. Today this busy, lively city boasts a wealth of historical buildings, museums and markets.

Accommodation: Hotel Fontan(or similar)

Single room available
Meals Provided: None
Day 2 - Visit the Teotihuacan Pyramids; city tour of Mexico City

On our first day in Mexico City we will drive out to the mysterious pyramids of Teotihuacan. Although abandoned thirteen centuries ago, they are still an unbelievable sight. Once the largest city in the Americas with perhaps 100,000 inhabitants, its influence continued through Middle America, and Maya craftsmen borrowed its decorative motifs and building designs. Centuries later the Aztecs revered Teotihuacan as 'the Place of the Gods'. Returning to the downtown area, we have time for a city tour of the Zocalo (main square) area, the cathedral and the National Palace. Many of these key sights were build on top of Tenochtitlan, the old Aztec capital.

Day 3 - Fly to Tuxtla Airport; boat trip through the Sumidero Canyon en route to San Cristobal

This morning we fly to Tuxtla airport, in the state of Chiapas, and set off for the spectacular Sumidero Canyon, a unique rift 41km long and up to 1000m deep, cut by the Rio Grijalva. This is the spot where, in the 16th century, some 1000 Chiapa Indians committed suicide rather than submit to Spanish rule. We take a trip on a speed boat to fully appreciate the towering gorge, before driving up a scenic mountain road to San Cristobal de las Casas, the small colonial and indigenous town located high in the tree-lined Chiapas range. At 2210m above sea level, it can get quite cold at night!

Accommodation: Hotel Arrecife(or similar)

Standard Hotel
Single room available
Meals Provided: None
Day 4 - Visit nearby indigenous villages; free afternoon to explore San Cristobal

Setting out northwest of San Cristobal, we drive to the traditional villages of San Juan Chamula and Zinacantan to discover a completely different side to Mexico. These two villages are strongly indigenous, and practice an interesting blend of Catholicism and traditional Maya beliefs', which is evident from a visit to the local churches. After exploring the villages we head back to San Cristobal for free time to spend wandering around the shops, squares and markets of the small town. Indigenous groups from the surrounding hills fill the town and marketplace with their colourful dress, including the distinctive Tzotzil people who still retain much of their Maya customs and language. They are noted for their bright textiles and weavings in bold designs, and this is the place to barter for some colourful souvenirs. This afternoon you may wish to visit the Na Bolom, the House of the Jaguar, which is dedicated to the preservation of the Lacandon tribe and displays many of their artefacts, or the Kakaw museum where you can learn about the history and production of chocolate in the area.

Day 5 - Travel to Palenque via the Agua Azul and Misol Ha Waterfalls

Leaving the highlands, the road is slow and winding, but there are beautiful views over forests and mountains as we descend to the jungles of Palenque. We plan to make two stops on our drive, to the waterfalls of Agua Azul and Misol Ha. At Agua Azul the powerful water tumbles over a series of limestone steps, before hitting the water below. The clear waters make this a popular weekend picnic spot for Mexicans and travellers alike. Misol Ha, on the other hand, has a long drop cascade that we can walk behind and into a small cave, an awesome place to witness the power of nature. The stunning 30m high waterfall was featured in the opening credits of the movie 'Predator'. After an afternoon of bathing we continue to our hotel in Palenque.

Accommodation: Hotel Maya Tulipanes(or similar)

Day 6 - Discover the important Maya site of Palenque; continue by bus to Campeche

One of the highlights of our trip is today's guided visit to the famous jungle ruins of Palenque, a fascinating and important Maya site. Once the choking forest was cleared, the ruins revealed the tomb of the high priest Pakal, his body adorned with a marvellous jade death mask - one of the most prized relics of the Maya culture, discovered only in 1952. The entire site, shrouded by the steamy rainforest, has an aura of deep mystery. After our visit we continue to the stunningly well-preserved colonial city of Campeche, which we explore on foot. This UNESCO Heritage city is almost so well maintained that it feels like a storybook town, and we will wander the walled ramparts, narrow cobblestoned roads, boulevard and pastel coloured buildings this afternoon. Beyond the walls of the old city, there is a bustling coastal town, with frenetic market activity, an inviting waterfront and old fishing docks to walk around.

Accommodation: Hotel Mision Campeche(or similar)

Day 7 - Visit the ancient Maya city of Uxmal and drive to Merida

The next stop on our journey is the ancient site of Uxmal. Encircled by hills, Uxmal is expansive in its design with majestic palaces and pyramids. Long geometrical friezes rank among the most splendid examples of ancient American Art. The incredible Pyramid of the Magician and the beautiful Governor's Palace are two of the finest examples of Maya art anywhere. Later in the day we drive to Merida, famed for its beautiful Spanish-Moorish style architecture, where we have time to wander along the narrow streets watching the horse-drawn carriages rattle past. Alternatively there is an option to visit Celestun, the pink flamingo sanctuary or the Mundo Maya Museum, with its interesting displays and artefacts from the Maya culture.

Accommodation: Hotel Colonial(or similar)

Day 8 - Explore Chichen Itza and head to Playa del Carmen

This morning we drive via the colonial backwater of Izamal to Chichen Itza. Founded in AD432, re-founded in 987 and conquered by the Toltecs in the 10th century, the culture of the Maya and the Toltec gradually fused. The pyramids, palaces, temples and ball court (where death was the penalty for defeat) are adorned with astonishing sculptures. Under the pressure of the civil war, the great monuments deteriorated and the Maya civilisation collapsed. Chichen Itza remains one of the most outstanding sites in the Americas. After a lengthy visit we drive to our final hotel in Playa del Carmen.

Accommodation: Hacienda Del Caribe(or similar)

Day 9 - Trip ends in Playa del Carmen

The trip ends this morning in Playa del Carmen. For those who wish to stay longer, we can arrange post-tour accommodation in Playa del Carmen at our conveniently located hotel, just 1 block from the golden sands of the beach.

Meals Provided: None

Trip information

Country information

Holidays to Mexico

Climate

Mexico is a country whose weather is very much determined by its geological make-up. Whatever time of year you visit the weather produces a range of diverse contrasts. The summer months (June to October) are generally the wettest, with the areas around Mexico City and Guadalajara averaging some 6 inches of rain in July, whilst the coastal areas like La Paz only get at most an inch. Temperatures at this time of year can also vary greatly, from the mid 70s F in Mexico City, to the high 90s at La Paz. Winter is generally the busiest period, when rainfall is at a minimum and the daytime temperatures average a pleasant 72° across the region. Do bear in mind that at altitude the temperatures can drop considerably at night and sudden changes can occur at anytime.
