Discover Mexico: Oaxaca's culture and coastline

13 days from £2795pp

Private Journey

Mexico is one of Latin America’s most vibrant and entertaining destinations, with a huge diversity of historical, cultural and natural attractions. On this private holiday, based in elegant and evocative accommodation, you’ll start off by visiting contrasting areas of the multi-layered capital, where the Aztec and Spanish heritage blends or co-exists. 

Heading out of the capital, stroll through the cobbled streets and soak up the colonial atmosphere in the Spanish planned city of Puebla.  Drive on towards the isolated, rugged southern highlands, dotted with small weaving and craft villages, which compose the region around Oaxaca, which has its own distinctive identity. Known as Mexico’s artistic centre, the town has both indigenous and colonial features: the markets, artisan workshops, rituals and multiple fiestas reflecting the native culture while the baroque architecture, plazas and museums display the Spanish influence. 

Round off your holiday lounging on the white sand beaches that fringe the bays, smothered in tropical foliage, on the Pacific beach at Huatulco.
