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.

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.

Our family of four just completed an extraordinary 16-day trip through Mexico, which included stops in Mexico City, San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, Tulum, Valladolid, and Holbox Island. This was a truly unforgettable trip. KimKim connected us with Mexico experts, Sibila and Jorge, from Totonal Viajes and they took care of all the details; planning our itinerary, transportation, and activities. From day one, they asked about us to learn how we like to travel, where we wanted to visit, and what we were interested in doing. The trip was perfectly coordinated. Our transportation and guides were all punctual, professional, and great to work with. It is clear that the staff at Totonal have experience and knowledge which they are passionate about sharing so that their clients have a truly wonderful time in Mexico. Every guide we had was well informed on their particular area and subject matter, as well as being friendly and accommodating when necessary.

Melina oversaw our day to day operations, and was available day or night any time we had a question or concern. She was an invaluable resource, and her response time was always super quick! In Mexico City, Pablo capably led us around the city, avoiding crowds and heavy traffic, sharing with us his knowledge of art, history, and the Aztec ruins in the surrounding areas. He was our driver on longer journeys to Queretaro and San Miguel de Allende, and he became like a member of the family after our time together.

Outside of San Miguel de Allende, we had the amazing opportunity to cook with Rosana at her home and restaurant, which is also a museum of prehispanic astronomy. It was an unforgettable day with Rosana, her husband, and her helper Lola- and I would highly encourage anyone with a love of history and the culinary arts to check it out!

Our guide for the day in Guanajuato was Antonio, and he deftly led us on a walking tour of this fabulous city, painting a vivid picture of its history and current status as one of the world’s great silver mining regions. As a lifelong resident of Guanajuato and a former mining engineer himself, Antonio had a wealth of personal knowledge and experience to share with us, and was a true gentleman and pleasure to converse with. From Guanajuato we flew to Cancun and began our time in the Yucatan in Tulum. Our guide, Pepe, showed us the wonders of the Sian Ka’an reserve. As an avid and prolific diver, his knowledge of the history and flora and fauna of the area were unparalleled. We followed him into the jungle to watch a skilled ‘chiclero’ extract latex from a tree using the same method as his father and grandfather before him. Unforgettable!

I also must thank our local contact in Playa del Carmen, Teresa. She accompanied us in person to ensure we had no difficulties at the car rental office, and she was there at the culmination of our journey to see us off at the airport and facilitate a smooth departure. She was kind and wonderful, and always just a message away if we needed anything at all during our time in the Yucatan.

In summary, we are thrilled with KimKim’s services. Like most people, our time and resources for travel are limited, and KimKIm succeeded at providing us with a unique and personal curated experience. It means so much that KimKim was able to assist us with crafting such a memorable, meaningful, and seamless trip. I am already dreaming of the next adventure… and when we are ready for that journey, I will be reaching out to KimKim again to help us with the logistics!

Thank you,
Jessica and Alan

The trip was planned expertly and we were able to see and do things that we will remember for a lifetime. We had local guides that spoke impeccable English, and had the historical knowledge of a college professor; Anna, Paola, Fidel, Gilberto, Manuel...all amazing . We were more than impressed. Our local representative, Melina called and texted me immediately upon arrival, and she too was available and responsive at all times. We had a wonderful driver: Javier, who went above and beyond each time he drove us, and was truly a joy. We can’t wait to go back to Mexico, and will definitely be using Kim Kim for our next journey. Muchas Gracias todos!!!
