In the land of the Aztecs, Zapotecs and Maya

Why Mexico?

  • FROM MEXICO-CITY TO OAXACA

  • WITH THE INDIOS IN SAN CRISTOBAL DE LAS CASAS

  • YUCATAN - THE WORLD OF THE MAYA

Because Mexico has "more". Mexico has more culture, more beach, more tequila, more charm, more music and more joie de vivre.

To explore this "more", you will start your privately guided tour first in Mexico City, the former home of the Aztecs.

Continue on to Oaxaca, the origin of the Mixtecs and Zapotecs. Today, Oaxaca is a city that attracts many artists due to its unique charisma and inspires their spirit and senses.

Afterwards, the mountainous region of Chiapas awaits you. Here you will get the first impression of the present life of the indigenous people, the "indigenas", before you dive into the world of the Maya.

Via Palenque, Merida and Chichen Itza you will finally reach Playa del Carmen or Cancun, the destination of the trip. Here you will meet the descendants of the proud Maya, perhaps in the form of a bartender acrobatically mixing cocktails behind the counter of your favorite bar.

FROM MEXICO-CITY TO OAXACA
-
You'll greet your first morning in Mexico City with a view over the city's most beautiful square, where nearly 700 years of history lie at your feet.

Few events seem as well suited to kick off your trip as breakfast at one of the small hotels located right on the Zocalo, offering spectacular views of the historic city center with its cathedral, national palace and Plaza de la Constitucion.

But...pssst...don't tell anyone you're not a houseguest. After your surely impressive stay in this "megacity", the colonial beauty of Oaxaca beckons.

The charm of this city is incomparable. Romantic pedestrian streets with restored colonial houses, the most beautiful church in the country, dozens of art galleries and cozy cafes characterize this place.

You can spend days here and you will still discover something new. But not only the city itself, but also the various Indian markets in the area, and especially the archaeological sites of Monte Alban and Mitla are well worth seeing.

WITH THE INDIOS IN SAN CRISTOBAL DE LAS CASAS
-
After Oaxaca, another unusually beautiful city awaits you in San Cristobal de las Casas.

But San Cristobal is different. Due to its location at an altitude of 2,100 m, it can get sensitively cold here at night.

However, after the morning fog lifts, a pleasant warmth pervades this city, whose peculiar charm comes from the mixture of colonial architecture and colorful indigenous life.

The best way to get an impression of indigenous life is to visit the villages of Zinacatán and San Juan Chamula. Here, everything has remained incredibly pristine and radiates a corresponding tranquility.

From San Cristobal, your journey continues to Palenque, where you will encounter the historical traces of the Maya for the first time. The archaeological site of Palenque is without a doubt one of the most beautiful in the Mayan world.

Once it was even praised as the most beautiful city in the Americas, not least because of its unique location in the middle of the jungle.

YUCATAN - THE WORLD OF THE MAYA
-
Yucatan, together with Chiapas, Belize, Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, is the home of the Maya.

Here you will encounter some of the most impressive archaeological sites.

Today's Maya live in the small villages surrounding former splendorous cities and show themselves in their typical Maya costume especially on market days.

In Merida, the "white city", colonial splendor awaits you again, but also a heat that makes you feel that you are approaching the Caribbean. Also noteworthy in Merida is that on weekends, people gather in the streets downtown to dance with live music.

Through tropical rainforests you will finally reach the dream beaches of Mexico. There are hotels for every taste on the white Caribbean beaches.

If you like it more quiet and dignified, we recommend the Orient Express Hotel Maroma Resort & SPA and the Hotel Paraiso de la Bonita Resort & Thalasso at the Riviera Maya.

If you are looking for a typical Mexican ambience with modern and "well styled" hotels, we recommend the Deseo and the Basico in Playa del Carmen.

And for the friends of "TexMex" and shrill disco hustle and bustle Cancun is the right place. Here you can relax in the white, squeaky sand from the efforts of the last night and be pampered by the excellent service of the staff of one of the many luxury hotels, for example the Ritz-Carlton.
