Day 1: Mexico City
Bienvenidos! Welcome to Mexico City. Your adventure begins with a welcome meeting at 7 pm where you'll meet your tour leader and travel group. This evening your leader will take you on a 'taco crawl' around town.

Day 2: Mexico City
Enjoy breakfast at a Mexico City institution: a two-storey bakery brimming with cakes, breads and biscuits, then embark on a walking tour of Mexico City's Centro Historico. Pull up a chair at one of the best seafood stands in the city for a late lunch.

Day 3: Puebla
Catch a local bus to Puebla, Mexico’s culinary capital. The city is renowned for dishes which combine Spanish and pre-hispanic influences, such as chiles en nogada (stuffed chillies covered in creamy walnut sauce). Check out the much-loved and very colourful Lucha Libre wrestling this evening, a unique combination of sport and theatre!

Day 4: Puebla/Oaxaca
Free time to explore Puebla before catching a local bus to Oaxaca (approximately 4 hours) - a beautiful colonial city nicknamed the ‘land of the seven moles’. Today you can try some delicious regional specialities including grasshoppers, cactus fruit and Oaxacan cheese and Oaxaca chocolate!

Day 5: Oaxaca
Partake in a traditional breakfast of chocolate, tamales and pan y yemas, then join a local chef on a walk through Oaxaca's renowned markets for an introduction to some regional specialties. Pick up ingredients to take back for a cooking class!

Day 6: Oaxaca
Today you will venture out of Oaxaca for an insight into regional life. Visit Mercado Tlacolula, one of the oldest markets in Mesoamerica. This is a unique opportunity to witness the ancient Zapotec cultural traditions of dress, cuisine and language, as the community gathers together from neighbouring villages.

Day 7: Huatulco
Board a morning bus for the long but scenic drive to Mazunte (appx. 9 hours). We will stop at a local village for lunch along the way. This is your chance to relax and unwind, as this town belongs to one of the most beautiful stretches of beach on Mexico's Pacific coast.

Day 8: Huatulco
Head out on an early morning boating expedition. If you're lucky you might spot turtles, stingrays or even dolphins while you're out on the water. Back on land, enjoy a masterclass on preparing Mexican coastal-style ceviche (raw fish cooked in citrus juice) and savour this over lunch.

Day 9: Huatulco
Your adventure ends today. There are no activities planned for the final day.
