This 11-day Mexico 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.
