A country that tends to make partisans of its visitors, Mexico is broad and beautiful (and its people famously big-hearted). Considering its diverse cuisines, UNESCO World Heritage Sites, vibrant indigenous cultures, romantic colonial cities, phenomenal food scene, and pristine beaches, Mexico may just be our best-kept secret. Since our bespoke tours to Mexico cater to such a broad range of interests, no two trips look the same. In fact, a trip to Mexico often feels like many trips in one, seamlessly weaving a range of the country’s highlights and hidden gems into one skillfully crafted itinerary. Let us know what inspires you and we’ll take of the rest.

Archaeology: Dig into Mexico's treasure trove of history with such outings as specialist-led visits to private archaeological sites in Mexico City, Chichen Itza, Tulum, Yaxchilan, and Palenque.
Art, Handicrafts & Festivals: Explore the vibrant art scene from the capital’s galleries (such as Frida Kahlo’s Casa Azul) and jewelry-design shops to Oaxaca’s colorful festivals and village workshops, known for pre-Columbian traditions, like black-clay ceramics.
Culinary: Savor street-side tacos, wine and mescal tastings, acclaimed restaurants, and locals-only eateries. Make mole in Pueblo, gather agave with distillers in Tequila, and shop with a chef in San Miguel de Allende.
Wildlife: Discover the diverse flora and fauna from underwater worlds to jungles and alpine forest. You might bird-watch in Riviera Maya, snorkel with sea lions and whale sharks in Baja, and see migrating butterflies in Michoacán.
Active Adventures: Your outdoor pursuits may take you hiking through Copper Canyon, overnighting in cabins built by Zapotec communities in the untouched Sierra Norte Mountains, and kayaking the Sea of Cortés.
Conservation: Head to Baja for hands-on experiences with field experts, such as helping to trap, measure, and release sea turtles and studying the genetic make-up of whale sharks after swimming alongside them.
Family: Your family's tailored blend of excursions may include surfing lessons and an art class in Todos Santos, snorkeling among coral reefs in Riviera Maya, or going on a scavenger hunt in Yucatán’s Uxmal temples.
