Introducing Mexico

Make the most of your time in Mexico.
Mexico is a vast and surprising destination. Yes, it has beautiful beaches and endless stretches of Pacific and Caribbean coast—but it also boasts 35,000 archaeological sites, 10% of the world’s biodiversity, and more UNESCO World Heritage Sites than any other country in the Americas. It's a cultural melting pot of more than 50 indigenous ethnic groups, with endless tradition (and endless incredible cuisine). There's a side of Mexico to suit every traveler—let us help you find yours.

When is the best time to visit?
Seasons in Mexico vary from region to region. On the Yucatán Peninsula, December-April is when the weather is warm and dry. It's also the most crowded and expensive time to go. We recommend May-June, when crowds have thinned and the rainy season has yet to arrive. The same goes for Mexico's Pacific coast. For other parts of the country, like Puebla or Mexico City, May-October is the wet season—you can expect rain almost every day. Ask your specialist for more on what to expect during your visit. Learn more

Where should you go?
For ancient history, you can't do better than the Yucatán—archaeological sites here include the iconic Chichen Itzá, Ek Balam, and many more. This is an especially good area for a self-drive tour. If you're interested in community-based activities, engage in local culture with village visits to Chunhuhub or Nuevo Durango

Oaxaca is world famous for its culture, cuisine, and world-famous surfing beaches—and if culture is what you're after, you'll also want to put Mexico City, Puebla, and other colonial cities such as San Miguel de Allende on your list. Chiapas, San Luis Potosi, and Veracruz are access points to Mexico's natural world—think waterfalls, rivers, and deep jungle. The biosphere reserves such as Sian Ka’an and Calakmul are also outdoor adventure destinations.

How many days do you need?
Have we mentioned yet that Mexico is a big country? The more days you can spend, the better. With 5 days, stick to Mexico City and Puebla, or pick another region to immerse in—Oaxaca, Chiapas, or Veracruz make good stand-alone trips. Ten days means you can comfortably visit the Yucatán, combining it with either Campeche and Riviera Maya or Chiapas. A trip through the colonial cities would also be possible in 10 days.

The lucky travelers with 2 weeks (or more) will get to experience the diversity that defines Mexico, visiting several regions with different ecosystems and ethnic groups. Start in Baja California Sur and make your way to Chepe, pair Puerto Vallarta with Guadalajara, or dive into Oaxaca, Puebla, and Mexico City.

Jorge and Melina did a great job and I was very happy with my trip. On very short notice during the high season, Jorge put together a perfect itinerary. I hate to plan and Jorge took all the work out of it. He put together a good balance of the big, can’t miss sites and activities that were a little more off the beaten track. Jorge helpfully worked with me to adjust the itinerary to meet my interests, and in hindsight, I only wish I had gotten more involved. Every tour they arranged was fun and worthwhile with knowledgeable and professional guides and comfortable transportation. During my travels, Melina kept close tabs on me to make sure things were going smoothly. The few times I sent her a message, she quickly responded and she would check in on me every couple days when I hadn’t been in touch.
