They are waiting for you: Taxco, the silver capital of the world, Oaxaca, a sample of the stunning colonial architecture and a source of fiery mezcal produced from the agave plant, San Cristobal de las Casas, the city in which you find yourself in the XVI century, without the aid of a time machine.

You will visit the two world-famous resorts – Cancun and Acapulco – and have a good swim in the warm turquoise waters of the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea.

During the trip you will enjoy the views of the nature of Mexico with the beauty that takes your breath away: the snowy volcanoes, deep canyons, valleys, mountain ranges, clear rivers, blue waterfalls, and of course, cacti and palm trees of all kinds and varieties!
