There is very little not to love about this particular trip. While my husband and I have been in Mexico numerous occasions, we’d never stayed in mexico City. We learned a great deal about the Aztecs and then moving to Oaxaca, a gorgeous city, We learned a lot about delicious foods, in particular mole, and finally enjoyed a couple of days on the beaches of.Playa Del Carmen.. The extraordinary variety of Mexico was illustrated in this wonderful trip. To be sure, for some, it was rather arduous. There was lots of walking on-a few Days, and a good bit of climbing (if you chose to do so) on Mexican ruins. The weather was glorious. The hotels were more than adequate, the food just wonderful. And our guide was simply the best -always making sure that everyone was happy, that every desire was fulfilled, and that everybody stayed safe and happy at all times.
