Places visited

Overview & Highlights

The selection of Mexico’s most fascinating historical places and archaeological sites includes culturally rich Oaxaca, combined with a Pacific beach wind down.

  • Full day guided excursion to Teotihuacan pyramids and Guadalupe shrine in Mexico City
  • Guided tour of Xochimilco, Coyoacán and Frida Kahlo Museum
  • Guided tour of Puebla, Cholula and TlaxcalaGuided tour of Oaxaca market and city
  • Half day guided excursion to the ruins of ancient city Monte Albán, Oaxaca

On this varied cultural holiday, based in elegant and evocative accommodation, you’ll visit the multi-layered capital, Mexico City, where the Aztec and Spanish heritage blends or co-exists; and the culturally magnificent gems  Puebla and Oaxaca.

Then move on to stroll through the cobbled streets and soak up the colonial atmosphere in the Spanish planned city of Puebla; followed by 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, Oaxaca 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. 

Mexico is one of Latin America’s most vibrant and entertaining destinations, with a huge diversity of historical, cultural and natural attractions. Having had your eyes opened to all that, round off your holiday lounging on the white sand beaches that fringe the bays, smothered in tropical foliage, on the Pacific beach at Huatulco.
