Day 3 Mexico City to Puebla
This morning is free for you to further explore the city before catching a local bus to Puebla. On arrival, your tour leader will take you on a short walking tour of this attractive colonial city.
Day 4 Puebla
A full day in Puebla gives enough time to explore the historic centre. There’s also a chance to head to the local market and perhaps pick up some handicrafts.

Take the bus to Oaxaca where you have two nights to explore this creative and historic city. On day six, you may choose to enjoy an optional cooking class or visit the Monte Alban ruins outside of the city.

Depart for Palenque Town, a small settlement in the heart of the jungle close to the magnificent ruins of the same name.
Day 11 Palenque to Mérida
Visit the ruins this morning, dating back nearly 1,500 years. These Mayan relics right in the heart of the jungle are incredibly atmospheric and it’s well worth taking an optional guided tour. In the afternoon, travel to vibrant Mérida, one of Mexico’s best loved destinations.
Days 12-13 Mérida
You have two full days to explore Mérida. An optional guided city tour will show you the main sights while it’s also worth getting up early to check out the outdoor markets. If you fancy a break from the city, a visit to the Maya ruins of Uxmal is the perfect way to spend a day.
