Mexico probably has the finest Hispanic heritage in all the Americas. It jealously guards its remarkable Aztec and Mayan inheritance (among many other ancient civilisations) and has many of the world’s greatest natural, cultural, scenic and historic wonders.

We start in Mexico City, built around an original Aztec city high in the central mountains. Next to Puebla where we explore the ancient pyramid at Cholula, the largest ever built. We continue to Oaxaca for the impressive ruins and some great walking, out from the town amongst the Zatopec indigenous communities. We continue through the mountains via Cordoba to tropical, vibrant Veracruz, a great city with a very Caribbean feel.

We fly east to Merida, a beautiful old colonial city. From here we visit the flamingo sanctuary at Celestun, where the birds provide a great spectacle, and walk amongst vegetation-covered Mayan ruins, just like Indiana Jones! Finally, we stop at Chichen Itza, the incredible and most visited pre-Hispanic site in Mexico. Our hotel is close by so we can visit early when the site is quiet and be gone before the crowds arrive.

This is a truly diverse holiday, including easy paced mountain walking, history, culture and wildlife. We will have a Mexican guide with us throughout to make sure we see and experience all the most authentic aspects of this astonishing country.

Everywhere we travel in Mexico you will be aware of cultural diversity. Listen out for the various languages being spoken on the streets. Although Spanish is the lingua franca, for many it is a second language. Look out for differences in local dress and custom as we travel through diverse climate and landscape. The high mountains around Mexico City are a world away from the plains of the Yucatan.
