Day 1: Arrival in Mexico City - Explore the neighborhoods of Roma and Condesa
Welcome to Mexico! After checking into your hotel, you will have free time to rest. Then go for a stroll through the historic center or explore the neighborhoods of Roma and Condesa, full of art galleries, cafés, shops, bars, and restaurants.
Day 2: Visit the archaeological site of Teotihuacán & gastronomic tour by bike
Today, you'll go on a bike tour around the archaeological site of Teotihuacán, the largest, most influential and most revered city in the history of the New World. You will cycle through the valley, the archaeological zone, and the Palace of Butterflies.
Later in the day, stop to taste pulque, a traditional alcoholic beverage, and take a short cooking class where you'll learn how to prepare a regional Mexican dish. Head back to the hotel in the evening to relax.
Day 3: Side-trip to the wilderness of Jungapeo
Today, move onto the next destination of your trip: Jungapeo. You will spend the next few days in a hotel surrounded by wilderness: it's located in a reserve with a rich diversity of fauna and flora, and it's particularly well-known for the incredible butterflies that can be seen in the area.
Take a free day to reconnect with nature and recharge your batteries—you'll have access to a spa and a temazcal (a traditional sweat lodge used by the pre-Columbian people to purify their bodies and care certain diseases).
Chat with a local specialist who can help organize your trip.
Day 4: Trekking in caves and waterfalls
Go on a trek through the surrounding area to see interesting caves, guava gardens, and the Tuxpan River. Your guide will point out exotic species of flora and fauna along the way. Later, you'll take a dip in thermal waters and have the option to get a deep-tissue massage or spend time in the sweat lodge.
Day 5: Observation of monarch butterflies
Watch as thousands of monarch butterflies fly towards the sky in a mosaic of colors on today's excursion, which takes place in the Monarch Butterfly Biosphere Reserve, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Every year, millions of monarch butterflies migrate from various places of the American continent to winter in this area. During a tour of the site, an expert guide will give you an overview of their migration pattern and the organization's preservation efforts. Afterward, you'll transfer back to Mexico City.
Day 6: Xochimilco canals & Frida Kahlo’s House
Day-trip to the canals of Xochimilco. The canals are the last reminder of the rivers that once crossed the valley floor of Mexico City. These days, flowers and plants line the banks of the canals. After a tour through the canals on a trajinera (a decorated boat), you will move onto the lovely bohemian neighborhood of Coyoacán to see visit the “Casa de Frida”, also known as Casa Azul or the Blue House, and learn about the life and work of Mexican artist Frida Kahlo.
Day 7: Transfer to Mexico City's airport
After breakfast, you'll head to the airport to catch your flight out. Safe travels!
