Signature Mexico: Cultural heartlands to Caribbean coast

14 days from £2,298pp

Price excludes international flights at the beginning and end of the trip


Private Journey


This jam-packed holiday visits the museums and teeming plazas of the megalopolis Mexico City, where Aztec and Spanish heritages sit side by side then moves on to the dramatic landscapes of the Sumidero Canyon to indigenous Oaxaca and colonial Mérida, gateway to the ruined jungle-cloaked Mayan temples. 

Mexico is one of Latin America’s most vibrant and entertaining destinations, with a huge diversity of historical, cultural and natural attractions. Drive through the dramatic vertiginous landscapes of Sumidero canyon. Wander through the cobbled streets and soak up the colonial atmosphere in Oaxaca and Mérida. Go on to explore the evocative ancient monuments, testament to bygone Mayan empires, which lay hidden and silent for centuries amid the deep valleys and jungles of the south. The journey ends on the white-sand beaches that fringe the Yucatán Peninsula.
