This trip involves some long days of travel by private and local transport, including one overnight bus. While this can be tiring, it's also a fantastic way to rub shoulders with the locals and get under the skin of a place.
Mexico's climate is sultry and tropical, so can get really hot and humid. Wear loose clothing and make sure stay hydrated, especially while out on walking tours.

As retirees, we still have a zest for adventure travel to lesser known regions of this amazing planet. Although touring can at times be tiring the basic trip is an ideal way to combine variety, discovery, friendship and adventure in a wonderful cultural package along with free-time to explore individually. Intrepid have never disappointed us in the wonderful well-planned itineraries it has to offer. Give it a try. Its so much fun !
