Mexico

Mexicans like their food fiery, while their pace of life is anything but. Time for family and friends, a party or a siesta- tehse moments are all vitally important to the people of the world's largest Spanish speaking country. Admire the experts grind and spice as they make a fresh batch of guacamole right in front of you. Mexico sets the scene for either a laid-back holiday in the sun, an adventure-filled journey, or both!

Mexico hosts a wide variety of landscapes from barren deserts to volcanoes and crisp rainforests. Combine a tumultuous history from the times of the Mayans and the Aztecs through to Spanish conquistadors and an enormous population speaking over 60 different languages, this destination provides endless variety. Mix in a tasty margharita a mariachi band playing in an elegant plaza, or walk with the unique and colourful Day of the Dead celebrations and you'll certainly experience the Mexican spirit.

Hopefully you don't just stop at the prominent marvels of Mexico City or Playa del Carment and Chichen Itza, because flourishing cities such as Oaxaca, Palenque and, our personal favourite of Taxco, will altogether deliver a proper insight into the real traditions of Mexico.



SOME THINGS TO SEE AND DO IN MEXICO



Mexican Flavours MEXICAN FLAVOURS

It's not all about nachos and burritos! You'll find a whole new world of Mexican food in the local markets, street stalls and one of the foodie tours that we can pre-arrange for you. Let us show you how to make traditional Mexican dishes. And then there's the churros, oh dearest churros, so simple yet soooooo satisfying.

Friday Kahlo Museum FRIDA KAHLO MUSEUM
 

The world renowned monobrow female artist hails from Mexico City, and eventually died in the same house she was born. This dwelling is one of the 186 museums, filled with Frida's life collections and art by Frida herself.

Chapultepac-Park CHAPULTEPAC PARK
 

Being twice the size of Central Park, this park has long been considered the lungs of Mexico City, as the trees replenish oxygen to the city. It is a great escape for those wanting to get away from the hustle of the city. Boat rides on lakes, museums, and a zoo inside the park ensures a full day of fun activity.

Floating Gardens of Xochimilco FLOATING GARDENS OF XOCHIMILCO
 
The World Heritage- site pf Xochimilco is an extensive lake and canal system, and an incredible example of the area's pre-Hispanic past. Board a colourful gondola-esque boat, called a trajinera, and explore the waterways and artificial islands of chinampas. These floating gardens were built by the Aztecs to improve agriculture.            
Mercado Roma MERCADO ROMA
 

This three-story mixed-use market is perfect for sipping Spanish wines and eating tapas, shopping for expensive cheeses, and nibbling snacks from the various 'puestos.' Browse the stalls to see what grabs your appetite then head upstairs for beers on the breezy patio.
