Highlights

  • You’ve never seen true colour until you’ve been to a Mexican market. Practice your bargaining skills, snap some photos and pick up traditional handicrafts at the markets in Mexico City and Puebla.
  • Eat your way through arty Oaxaca at its many market vendors and authentic restaurants – mole poblano and mezcal for dinner? Delicioso!
  • Escape the Mexican heat in the highlands of San Cristobal de las Casas. This town is surrounded by indigenous villages where traditional customs and roots are thriving.
  • Chichen Itza is one the New Seven Wonders of the World. It’s not hard to see why – strolling around the ancient Maya ruins feels pretty wondrous.
  • Cool off with a swim in the waters of Agua Azul, a series of waterfalls named for their stunning blue colour.
