Somehow, Mexico has become synonymous with boring resorts and crowded beaches. That’s not the Mexico we know. Come and experience ours on this 9-day journey into the country’s colonial past. Beginning in Mexico City, you’ll move on to Puebla and indulge in their famous spicy and chocolate-y mole sauce, explore Oaxaca’s pre-Spanish ruins and Baroque churches, and navigate the boardwalk in Veracruz before a seaside dinner. Still need to hit the beach? Don’t fret, we’ll do that, too.
Arrive at any time.
Drive to Puebla, famous for its hand-painted tiles, unique handicrafts, mouth-watering Mole Poblano (a spicy sauce made with cocoa and infinite varieties of chillies) and rich colonial history. Opt for a mole-making demonstration and dinner at a local restaurant famed for featuring Puebla's seasonal specialties.
Explore the markets of Oaxaca and enjoy an included cooking class to get a hands-on understanding of Mexican cuisine. After, visit a mezcal factory that produces the fiery "other tequila" which is this region's specialty.
On Day 6, head to the coast. Full of charming colonial buildings, cafés lining the streets and the lively malecón (boardwalk), Veracruz is not to be missed. Enjoy delicious seafood at a local oceanside restaurant to experience the typical coastal cuisine. Veracruz is home to the best coffee in Mexico and is famous for its red snapper in a sauce of fresh tomatoes and onions. Don't forget to hit the dance floor with salsa or mamba lessons.
Drive back to the capital for a final afternoon of exploration.
