Eagle: Aztecs, Mayas and conquistadores

14 days from £2,398pp
 

Group Journey

 
On this escorted group holiday, visit the superb museums and teeming plazas of the megapolis Mexico City, wander the cobbled streets and soak up the Spanish colonial features of Oaxaca, Campeche and Mérida. Explore the glorious ancient monuments which lay hidden, smothered and silent for centuries amid the deep valleys and jungles of the south, before ending your trip in the lush Yucatán Peninsula, fringed by white sand beaches. 

From here you're well positioned to extend your trip to Mexico's Caribbean coast, to Cuba, or across the border to Guatemala.
