Why should you travel to Mexico with us?

A place where beetroot tacos, pre-Hispanic cities and palm-fringed beaches rule the land.

A swaying rhythm rises from enchanting cenotes and between the Aztec wonders of Chichen Itza and the block-colour marvels of Luis Barragan. Mexico has cast a spell on us, and we return each time to uncover what makes it tick. Maybe that’s the mezcalerias of Oaxaca, the spice markets of Roma, or the tropics of Yucatan. Our tailor-made tours to Mexico will see you unlock Mayan secrets one moment and sunbathe on the golden sand the next. And that’s why we love it so.

Oaxaca

A maze of mezcals.

The perfect destination for anyone who considers themselves to be street-food savvy or an expert of gourmet cuisine; Oaxaca serves up something different.

Riviera Maya

Chichen Itza: a step for each day of the year.

Now a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the most visited archaeological sites in Mexico, today is a lesson in Mayan history and human sacrifice. Armed with a local historian, you’ll rise early and fast track the queue at Chichen Itza, leaving you all the time in the world to ask questions. Next up at Chichen Itza: the ‘Well of Sacrifice’ at Cenote Sagrado.
