Mexico holidays 2020 & 2021

Travel in times of uncertainty
With practical guidance, our flexibility promise and inspirational tools for travel planning, you can book with confidence with Audley.

The temples of Chichén Itzà, swimming in aquamarine underground cenotes, Mexico City from the perspective of Frida Kahlo’s paintbrush or its exuberantly costumed processions for the Day of the Dead… On a tailor-made holiday with Audley, we won’t just show you the popular places to visit in Mexico. Our specialists, leaning on their experiences of travelling and living in the country, will help you decide on the places that speak most to you.

Ride the Copper Canyon railway to reach the wilderness of the Sierra Madre. Spy humpback whales breaching in the seas around Baja California. Go to church in tiny highland towns like San Cristóbal de las Casas, witnessing indigenous beliefs melding with Catholicism in shamanic ceremonies. Take a private cooking class in Oaxaca and learn how to make mole under the guidance of an expert chef.

The sleepy sands of Isla Holbox. The stately, Spanish colonial town of Morelia. Mayan ruins smothered in jungle, deep in the Yucatán Peninsula. Travel at your own pace, in your own style, with the confidence that we’ll show you the best places to visit in Mexico.
