First of all, because it is a truly wonderful destination and it is affordable.
This country is a very complete destination. Most people think of it only as beaches and archeological sites. Yes, we do have awesome beaches and amazing cities built by ancient cultures. But there is much more that you do not expect.
If you are a foodie or gourmand…
You might know that Mexican food is one of the only 3 world cuisines considered intengible world-heritage by UNESCO. Consequently, four out of the 50 best restaurants in the world are in Mexico. Chocolate, tobacco, chiles, turkey, tomato and vanilla are all original to Mexican cuisine. They were introduced to the rest of the world 500 years ago. As a result every trip to Mexico is a gastronomic fiesta. Our GASTROtour and BAJAtour (around the Wine Country) are great options to enjoy Mexican gastronomy.
In love with charming little cities…
Are you looking for little towns where life goes easy and every corner is beautiful? You have not one or two, but 111 so-called Magic Towns. They have beautiful colonial architecture where you can find art galleries, nice cafés and true Mexican joie de vivre in every corner. Our favourites are San Miguel de Allende, San Cristobal de las Casas, Zacatecas and Valladolid. You can visit many of them in our MAYAtour, GASTROtour and COLONIALtour
If you fancy adventure and physical activity…
Monterrey is capital to adventure sports and activities. It is surrounded by wet canyons to abseil, mountains to hike, walls to climb, tracks for mountain bike and great sightseeing. You can also dive in underwater rivers in Yucatan, fly in hot air balloons over ancient cities, run in amazingly long trail races or join one of many iron man. Think of Monterrey rather as the Mexican Queenstown. Get the idea? ADVENTour and HUASTECA add-on are thought for people like you.
Mexico City is the second city with more museums in the world, second only to London. It is not just about quantity but about quality. You will be amazed by diversity, from lovely Chapultepec Castle to modern Soumaya Museum. Furthermore, The Great Mayan World Museum in Merida, the Anthropology Museum in Xalapa and Marco in Monterrey are great reasons to pay a visit to these cities too. Mexico City is best enjoyed in our GASTROtour, ADVENtour and COLONIALtour.
Sun and sand lover?
With over 11,000kms of coasts in the Pacific, the Caribbean and the Gulf of Mexico, we certainly have a beach for every taste. The most famous are Cancun and Playa del Carmen. But if you are looking for a charming town by the beach, then head to Puerto Vallarta. If you fancy surfing, visit Puerto Escondido or Sayulita. If you enjoy golfing by the beach, you should know that Los Cabos is a gem.
All of our tours include quality time in a beach destination and many activities from fly board and surfing lessons to visits to an underwater museum . See GASTROtour, ADVENtour, MAYAtour, BAJAtour and COLONIALtour.
