Overview

A tour to the historical sites of Mexico is a great way to get a glimpse into the country’s rich culture and heritage. An important archaeological site in the world, the ancient Pyramids of Teotihuacan will leave you spellbound. Considered a place of great energy, you’ll see people meditating on the top of the Pyramid of the Sun and Pyramid of the Moon. Take a trip to ‘The Zocalo’ and watch conchero dancers in feathered head dresses and shell anklets, perform to the rhythm of pounding drums.

It is a true spectacle to watch the cliff divers in Acapulco plunge from a great height into almost 4 metres of rough surf. Don’t forget to bargain for some fine silver jewellery at the silver-mining town of Taxco.
