DAY 1 - Mexico City to Oaxaca

Mexico City

Meeting your TM and fellow travellers this morning, you'll be setting off for Oaxaca (pronounced Wa-ha-ka)! Have you got it? Great - let's hit the road.

Oaxaca

Welcome to Oaxaca, with its bohemian bars, charming colonial buildings and ridiculously pretty churches. Commonly known as the gastronomical capital of Mexico, the food here is guaranteed to guac your world. The perfect drink to wash it all down? Mezcal, of course.

Stay

Hotel Royal Reforma Mexico City

DAY 2 - Oaxaca

Oaxaca

Today, you're going to soak up some serious Oaxaca vibes with a guided city tour where you'll get to check out the local markets. The colourful city streets are going to be the perfect place for some Insta shoots, and if you can be dragged away from the views for long enough, there's plenty of delicacies to try during your free night. 

INCLUDED EXPERIENCES

  • City tour of Oaxaca

  • Mezcal Tasting in Oaxaca

  • Visit the ruins of Monte Alban and local markets

DAY 3 - Oaxaca to Merida

Oaxaca

Adios Oaxaca, Merida is calling our names! And we won't waste any time, hopping on an included flight to whizz us there without delay.  

Merida

As gentle as it is beautiful, Merida will take you in its arms and show you the quieter side of Mexico. A walking tour will take you down twisting cobbled streets through grand plazas, showing off this small town’s quaint vibes and chilled atmosphere. When we reach the old town you'll have some free time to explore the bustling markets, where you'll find countless treasures to take home. Later, ask your Trip Manager for the best place to head to feast on Yucatan specialities. After you've stuffed yourself with the local delicacies, it's time for your blissful slumber. Tomorrow we're headed to Cancun.

Hotel Caribe

INCLUDED EXPERIENCES

  • Included flight to Merida

  • City tour of Merida

DAY 4 - Merida to Cancun via Chichen Itza

Merida

Pack up your swag of Mexican trinkets and say goodbye to the calm oasis of Merida and hello yet another incredible UNESCO World Heritage-listed site: Chichen Itza.

Chichen Itza

These ancient ruins are the most famous and best preserved of their kind in Mayan history.  With our Local Guide leading the charge, Chichen Itza will provoke questions about the Mayan calendar, the positioning of the sun, the connections of the ruins around the country, and the worlds that came before us - a truly special spot on the trip and a history buff's delight. With more knowledge than you'll know what to do with, it's time for a change of scene, and a dip in an Insta-worthy cenote. These underground lakes or waterholes the perfect way to beat the Mexican heat. 

Cancun

In stark contrast, next up is Mexico’s super resort – Cancun. With high energy vibes this stop is a no brainer when it comes to getting your fiesta on. One suggestion for tonight's dinner at the Mercado 28, a busy market serving true Mexican delights.

Stay

Holiday Inn Cancun Arenas

INCLUDED EXPERIENCES

  • Locally guided tour of the ancient ruins of Chichen Itza

DAY 5 - Cancun

Cancun

Just in case you don't know the drill by now, an ice cold cerveza should remind you that Cancun is a hub of fiery entertainment. But this place isn't just about the party vibes. Powdery sand beaches, endlessly swimmable waters and laid-back taco joints have everything you need, no matter your mood. Your Trip Manager knows this place like the back of their hand, so you're guaranteed to be in the know on all the best spots to head this evening.

DAY 6 - Depart Cancun

Cancun

Morning global roamers, we came, we saw, we sizzled. We'll fuel up on one last breakfast together, then it's time to wipe away the tears and do those final friend requests because today you're homeward bound with firm plans in full steam for a Contiki 2.0 reunion in Asia. See you next time!
