Begin your journey across Mexico in buzzing Mexico City, the oldest city in the Americas. Visit world-class museums, stroll around the famous streets of historical Zocalo (meaning city centre), cruise the canals and explore the stately Teotihuacán pyramids. Next, spend a day exploring Puebla’s many churches before slowing your pace at neighbouring Cholula, home to the ancient Great Pyramid. Travel to Oaxaca, whose city and surrounding state are famous for its rich history and indigenous cultures. Travel to Chiapas state and the charming town of Chiapa de Corzo, the starting point for trips to nearby Sumidero Canyon. Walk the cobbled streets of San Cristobal de las Casas before journeying to the jungly ruins of Palenque and the Yucatán’s self-proclaimed culture capital Mérida. Pay a visit to Mexico’s most famous pyramids at Chichén Itzá before ending your trip on the golden beaches of trendy resort town Playa del Carmen.
