Discover nature, culture and ancestral rituals

This is not your ordinary México sightseeing tour!

Instead, it is an authentic and profound 10 day journey through México City and the states of Puebla & Veracruz which was specially crafted for the inquisitive traveler to give them a unique up-close encounter with this region’s colorful art, music, ancient customs, local culture, and impressive natural beauty.

Think of this trip as a popouri of sites, sounds, and natural wonder

 

Sites

Explore the vast archaeological zone of El Tajín (a recognized UNESCO World Heritage Site), absorb the joys and the pains of Frida Kahlo through her art found at her home –Casa Azul, visit an organic coffee plantation, learn how a pre-Columbian drink is made, meet indigenous women who create with backstrap looms, take a whitewater river rafting trip (optional), visit a vanilla factory, sit in the first church ever built in the Americas, and more.

Sounds

Marvel at the flute playing of a Papantla Volador (flier) perched precariously high atop a straight pole, attend the performance of the world renowned National Folkloric Ballet performing on stage at the México City National Palace of Fine Arts, and enjoy an outdoor harp concert of soothing music with the thick green tropical jungle forest as a backdrop.

Natural Wonder

Participate in an ancient Temascal cleansing ritual, relax on a secluded warm Gulf of México beach, travel in a palangana (motor-less boat) to marvel at the gnarled Mangrove trees, and learn how time was counted in ancestral México.
