Day by Day Itinerary:

Day 1: Mexico City Airport Pick-Up

You will be picked up upon arrival at the Mexico City airport and transferred to your accommodation for check-in. Enjoy the rest of the afternoon at your leisure to relax, explore, and get settled in. Overnight in Mexico City.

 

Day 2: Teotihuacan Tour & Family Dinner Experience (D)

Head out of Mexico City by public transit, experiencing how locals move about this crowded city. Hop off at the archaeological area of the Teotihuacan pyramids, where you’ll learn about the people who once lived here and all the mysteries that still surround this site. As you tour the grounds, you’ll see the Moon Pyramid, the Calzada de los Muertos (Dead Pass), and the Sun Pyramid, which is the tallest and most spectacular in the area — it’s 63 metres to the top (and yes, we’re going up).

After exploring the pyramids, we’ll continue the afternoon walking through the streets of a nearby town. Our first stop will take us into a family-run business where you will learn about ‘obsidian’ — the material that the Teotihuacan people use as a main element to make their tools, idols, and decorations. As well, you’ll get to sip an ancient sacred drink called ‘pulque,’ which is extracted from the heart of the maguey (another kind of cactus) — considered by some to be the great-grandfather of tequila. Next pay a visit to the cactus product factory, where you’ll find jams, candies, spicy lollies, alcoholic creams, and more products made by the local people from the endemic vegetation such as nopal, xoconostle, and tuna (a cactus fruit, not tuna fish!). Not only will you be able to see all the cactus varieties at this family-run factory, but you’ll also get to try some samples and, if you like them, you can pick up some of these exotic products as a souvenir. 

To finish our journey, we’ll visit a local family for dinner. Their business is catering, so you’ll be in good hands to try some traditional dishes. Their menu is always changing based on whatever they’ve cooked for the day — but there’s always delicious options for every palate. You’ll be welcomed into their home and experience traditional dinner customs. Plus, you’ll be able practice all those Spanish words you’ve learned along your trip as you enjoy some real local flavours of typical Mexican kitchens. After dinner, we’ll head back to Mexico City, happy, full, and relaxed from our wonderful day exploring life outside the hustle and bustle of the big city.

Overnight in Mexico City

 

Day 3: Mexico City Market Experience

Mexico City’s markets are some of the most vibrant places in the city. Your first stop is a relatively unknown market that even some Mexicans don’t know about. Your guide will provide you with some interesting information about the market’s unique history and provide context within modern Mexican society. If you’re into the Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera story, this will definitely be a highlight!

After this, you will discover the witchcraft market, one of the most bizarre places in the city. Here you’ll find everything from your favourite superhero costume and festive piñata, to magic potions, voodoo doll, and the ever-coveted natural cure for a hangover. Next, it is time to be amazed by the 3-in-1 market of prepared food, fresh fruits and vegetables, and an unmatched selection of flowers. This is the biggest flower market in the city, where local vendors will match the colour of your eyes to their most exotic flowers. The aisles of this market are lined with stands selling fruit, herbs, piñatas, meat, fish, corn, mole, and everything in between. Overnight in Mexico City.

 

Day 4: Xochimilco and Frida Kahlo Day Trip

Discover the ancient canals of Xochimilco where the Aztecs once planted and cultivated their crops. Ride through these scenic waterways on a traditional Mexican "trajinera" gondola-style boat.  Head over to the bohemian and intellectual neighborhood of Coyoacan to visit Casa Azul, Frida Kahlo's former house, now a museum housing her most valuable art and memorabilia.  Pass through the Mexican National University at Ciudad Universitaria before heading back to the Historic City Center. Overnight in Mexico City.

 

Day 5: Mexico City Airport Drop-Off

Today your Mexico City adventure will end with an airport drop-off. We wish you happiness and health for your journey onward.
