Ancient Mayan empires
A popular place to marvel at Mayan architecture is just outside of Cancun at Chichen Itza. Take a daytrip from Cancun to see the epic monument that was the capital of the ancient Mayan civilisation. Your guide will share the secrets of the Mayans and you’ll be treated to a traditional Yucatan lunch accompanied by Yucatan music and dance.
Outside of Mexico City you can take a tour to ascend the Aztec pyramids of Teotihuacan, taste the ancient Aztec drink pulque, and visit a factory where locals make goods such as jams and lollies from cactus plants. Finish off the day with a home-cooked meal with a local family in their home.

While the essence of the celebration may be a little macabre, the festival itself is a colourful celebration of dearly departed ancestors. Expect seas of flowers, candy coloured skulls and candlelit vigils.
Take a food tour through Mexico and you’ll experience the authentic flavours of Mexico’s most famous culinary regions. Tour options including a taco crawl through Mexico City, sampling cactus and grasshoppers in Oaxaca’s Abastos Markets, learning to make Puebla’s famous mole poblano, and dining at traditional cantinas all over the country.
