Overview & Highlights

Mexico is one of Latin America's most vibrant and entertaining destinations, with a huge diversity of cultural and natural attractions. Get a flavour of it on this top quality escorted group tour.

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.

Our Expert's Opinion

From Mayan ruins to Spanish colonial towns, pristine beaches to tropical forests and rocky deserts, this trip really packs in all of Mexico's highlights. Nothing beats the incredible food and friendliness of Mexicans but my biggest highlight was exploring the jungle clad ruins of Palenque.
