Mexico City, Puebla, Oaxaca, Valladolid & Playa del Carmen

This tour has it all: history, culture, food, beaches… and butterflies! From the thriving metropolis of Mexico City to historic Oaxaca, and from the World Heritage Site of Chichen Itza to the beaches of Playa del Carmen. With no more than 20 guests along for the journey, your trip starts at our hotel located in the heart of downtown Mexico City. In addition to feasting on traditional Mexican dishes, we’ll visit the Valle de Bravo Waterfalls and the Floating Gardens of Xochimilco, and explore the Frida Kahlo Museum in the house where Frida Kahlo lived. We’ll stop in the colonial city of Puebla on our way to Oaxaca, a center for Mexican gastronomy which has been declared an Intangible Cultural World Heritage by UNESCO.  A tour of the historic city center, a food tour, and a visit to bucket-list worthy Monte Alban are among the many activities we’ll enjoy in this city. Next, head to the Caribbean coast to explore Valladolid and Playa del Carmen. Visit Chichen Itza, a Wonder of the World and the best-preserved archaeological site in Mexico. Then visit one of the most famous underground cenotes in the area. We end our trip in Playa del Carmen where you’ll take part in cultural experiences including a sacred Mayan ritual and a purification ceremony before enjoying an incredible gastronomic experience. Take your last day of the trip to delight in the beach and amenities at your resort.
