Mexico Tours & Holidays

Peel back the lucha libre mask and you’ll find a patchwork of cultures and customs mixed into one flavour-filled country.

The gregarious locals are just as likely to pull you up for a dance at one of Mexico City’s hip-shaking salsa clubs as they are to show you the way to one of the country’s many ancient ruins, all with a casual ‘hola’ and an inviting smile. While our tours get you up close with locals, they also show you the best sights from on and off the gringo trail. You can party until dawn in Playa del Carmen, eat your way into a food coma in colourful Oaxaca, or, best of all, kick back with a horchata in the lazy seaside port of Merida.

Yucatan Peninsula Adventure

Overall the trip was enjoyable as we had a friendly group but poor value for money with some disappointing hotels.

Yucatan Peninsula Adventure

Alexandra · Traveled January 2024
Mariana our tour guide was absolutely excellent - I cannot speak highly enough of her. Locations like Merida, Balacar and Campeche were lovely, with Bacalar being one of the most beautiful places I've ever been. The tours of ruins were really very interesting and Uxmal was fascinating and much more easily navigated than Chichen Itza in my view as there were far fewer people. Tulum and Playa were very very commercialised, overwhelmingly expensive, and not my thing at all and I was pleased we only spent 1 day there. The accommodation was VERY variable and completely sub-par in Playa (right next door to a thumping night club, no working shower etc). The best bit of this trip was the middle section involving smaller cities and ruins etc. Intrepid need to drastically improve the quality of the accommodation in some places however as (having gone on 5 intrepid trips and backpacked) this was by far the lowest quality I've experienced on an organised trip, and that includes some of the poorest countries in Asia, Cuba etc.

Yucatan Peninsula Adventure

Jonas · Traveled January 2024
Great introduction to Mexico. Exploring this country beyond the beautiful beaches is a must! Only frustrating thing about this trip was that most of the great activities had to be added on. We kept spending more money on an already expensive trip.
