This holiday focuses on Mexico's distinctive cuisine, increasingly popular the world over. Recipes reflect a fusion of indigenous Mesoamerican cooking with European, especially Spanish, elements added after the Spanish conquest. On this private holiday you’ll have the opportunity to learn how to prepare some of the landmark dishes, guided by qualified Mexican food experts, and savour your culinary creations..
The basic staples remain native foods such as corn, beans and chili peppers, but the Europeans introduced a large number of other foods, such as dairy products and various herbs and spices. The result is uniquely Mexican.
Mexico is one of Latin America’s most vibrant and entertaining destinations, with a huge diversity of historical, cultural and natural attractions. In addition, explore Mexico City and visit a few of the colonial towns, where indigenous and Spanish heritages sit side by side. Continue to the Yucatán peninsula and explore the ruins of Chichén Itzá, the most grandiose testimony to the bygone Mayan empire. Round off your holiday lounging on the white-sand beaches that fringe the peninsula.
