SUGGESTED INTINERARY

  • Day 1: Arrival to Mexico City International Airport (Benito Juarez)

Depending on the time of arrival we will visit the Historic Center, The Metropolitan Cathedral of the Assumption of the Most Blessed Virgin Mary into Heaven, which is the largest cathedral in the Americas, and seat of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Mexico.

  • Day 2: South Zone tour. Duration: between 8 to 10 hours.

We will visit town of Coyoacán, home of the iconic Frida Kahlo,who is considered one of Mexico’s greatest artist.

Frida Kahlo is one of the most influential iconic painters in Mexico.  Not only was she a favourite artist but also one of Mexico’s most famous artists and most importantly as a strong feminist. She’s best known for her daring self-portraits depicting the suffering she experienced in her personal life.

– Frida Kahlo’s home and museum

-Mercado – Artisan Market

-Trajineras of Xochimilco

“Xochimilco” – Variously translated from the Aztec’s Nahuatl language as “garden of flowers” or “place where flowers grow” — is an outlying neighborhood of Mexico City today; one of the capital’s most cherished Sunday traditions is  to spend an afternoon floating through the canals on brightly painted, covered wooden pole boats called Trajineras (gondolas) and enjoy mariachis playing on passing barges. But what we find most compelling is something no theme park can replicate, is the last remnant of the vast system of causeways, canals, manmade islands and floating gardens created out of the vast lake system that once covered today’s Valley of Mexico before it was blotted out by Mexico City’s sprawl.

  • Day 3

Pre-Hispanic Pyramids of Teotihuacan (8-10 Hours)

The holy city of Teotihuacan (meaning the place where the gods were created) is situated some 50 KM northeast of Mexico City in the valley of the same name. The city first formed between 150 BC and 200 AD and benefitted from a plentiful supply of spring water, which was channelled through a complex irrigation system. The largest structures at the site were completed before the 3rd century AD, and the city reached its peak in the 4th century AD with a population as high as 200,000

This archaeological site it is characterized by the vast size of its monuments – in particular the Temple of Quetzalcoatl and the pyramids of the Sun and the Moon, laid out on a geometric and symbolic principles. As one the most powerful cultural centres in Mesoamerica, Teotihuacan extended its cultural and artistic influence throughout the region and even beyond.

  • Day 6 – Museum Iconographic del Quixote, 1-2 hours

Guanajuato’s Don Quixote fixation manifests itself in countless ways. In particular, the the massive annual International Cervantes Festival, the Don Quixote Iconographic Museum, where every exhibit features Don Quixote, turns out to be surprisingly interesting- and not just for literature buffs!

Housed in a beautifully restored 18th century building, the museum features hundreds of works in countless media. Amble through the museum and see the delusional knight of Spanish literary fame, along with his trusty sidekick Sancho Panza, depicted in everything from oil paintings, tapestries and bronze statues to stranger knick-knacks like chess sets, coins, postage stamps and clocks.
