Description of Mexico small group holiday, culture & beach

Make the most of two weeks in Mexico on a cultural holiday that's got plenty of days at the beach thrown in for good measure.

Learning more about Aztec, Mayan and Zapotec tribal culture as well as the early Spanish invaders is an absolute thrill for anyone with a passing interest in history, with trips to sacred temples and ancient pueblos adding to the enjoyment of a holiday in Mexico.

First things first and your Mexico cultural holiday starts in the capital, Mexico City, where the beach resorts and iconic pyramids on the Yucatan Peninsula give you just a flavour of what lies ahead.

As well as unravelling the mysteries of Mexico's early civilisations you'll also be treated to an array of opportunities to swim, snorkel or explore on foot which all adds up to an exceedingly well-balanced holiday in Mexico inspired by the spirit of Latin America.

Small group adventure

What is a small group adventure?
It's a great way to travel! Whether you are travelling on your own, with a partner or with friends, a small group trip is a fantastic way to see the world. You'll travel on a fixed itinerary that has been designed to help you discover the best of region. From the known highlights, the hidden gems that you won't find in the guidebooks.

Itineraries run on set departure dates, accompanied every step of the way by an English speaking local group leader. You chose the itinerary and the date that suits you best and you book on.

Why travel on a small group adventure?
Small groups allow us to explore where larger tour groups can't. Our maximum group size of 16 travellers allows us to use local transport to get from A to B, to visit rural villages, spend time with the locals and even stay at a local home overnight, and it allows us to give our travellers genuine, real life experiences of the countries we are visiting; what you'll be doing and how you'll travel depends entirely on your chosen itinerary.

Is an adventure right for me?
The word adventure means something different to everyone, and our range of trips reflects that. Whether you want to explore local markets, visit out of the way temples and meet local people or go on an early morning safari drive searching for the 'big five', we'll have a trip for you. If you are looking for a physical challenge such trekking the Kokoda Track or summiting Kilimanjaro, we can help with that too.

So what can I expect on this trip?
This is one of our Basix trips, designed specifically for budget travellers who still want the security of group travel without lots of added inclusions. These trips don't have many included activities and meals are rarely included in the price, giving you the opportunity to search out local restaurants and sample regional specialities to your heart's content. The amount of free time in these itineraries means that the Basix trips often appeal to younger travellers looking to explore independently and tailor the trip to your own interests. You often won't spend too many days in any one place and you'll pack lots of different locations into your holiday.

As you might expect, accommodation on a Basix trip will be fairly basic! We'll stay in 1-2 star accommodation, often including homestays and there may be nights where the group stays somewhere multi-share / in a dormitory-style. Most accommodation however will be twin share; with solo travellers automatically roomed with a fellow group member of the same sex, this means that there are no single supplements on Basix trips.

On camping trips you will be expected to help out around the camp; putting up and taking down your own tent, helping with meals and other camp duties. We often find the nights where we are without a few creature comforts are those that are most amazing; wild bush camping in Serengeti anyone?! We'll use local transport where ever possible which is a great way of seeing the country and meeting locals as we travel.

Can I book my flights with you?
Yes! We are a fully ATOL bonded tour operator meaning that we can book flights from the UK as part of your holiday package. Just ask us for a quote including flights when you make your enquiry.

Carbon reduction

Your holiday will help support local people and conservation. We must also reduce CO2. Learn about the CO2 emissions of this holiday and how to reduce them.

Environment

As a global operator, we take our role in the tourism industry very seriously. We recognise the impact that tourism has on local communities and the environment, and we plan and operate all our tours with this front of our minds. We believe that every tour operator must be responsible in the way they conduct their business, to ensure the welfare of all people and the conservation of the environment.

We are committed to operating in a responsible manner, incorporating the principles of sustainable development in the way we provide our travellers with real life experiences. These values are more than just words on a page; they are ingrained in our culture and the daily operations of every office and every trip. In addition, we expect our staff and travellers to demonstrate the principles of responsible travel - respecting people, cultures and local environments; in the distribution of wealth; in good will and cross-cultural sharing; and in contributing to sustainable development.

We believe that responsible travel is about the attitude you take with you and the choices you make when travelling - to respect and benefit local people, their cultures, economy and the environment. On trips like this through Latin America for example, dress standards are conservative, and we recommend loose, lightweight clothing so as not to offend, particularly outside of the major cities.

We take care to use local transport throughout, including sleeper buses and stay in small, locally owned hotels and guesthouses. We source produce locally throughout the trip, eat at local restaurants and encourage our travellers to purchase souvenirs from local artisans and recruit our on the ground team from the local community. This not only gives a fantastic insight into the country and a snap shot of day to day life, but it also puts valuable financial resources back into the local economy, creating jobs and supporting local businesses.

As company our responsibilities don’t stop when our tours end. Our own in house foundation has been in operation for over 10 years; a not-for-profit fund that has distributed over AU$3 million to more than 70 non-government organisations since 2002, from health care, education, human rights, child welfare, sustainable development and in environmental and wildlife protection. Donations come from our travellers and are then matched by us dollar for dollar.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


The beautiful ruins & the lovely welcoming people. Our tour guide Juan Carlos was great & his apprentice Rene was also very good.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


Just enjoy it! And don't be afraid of climbing the pyramids.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


Yes.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


Brilliant overall except they don't seem to cater very well for vegetarians. I ate more pasta as the vegetarian Mexican food was not filling. Also breakfast was expensive, I paid £4 for a few slices of toast & green tea. Most places don't do black tea so bring your own if, like me, you cannot survive without!

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


Every single second

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


Remember to give yourself some time to sit and watch and think. There is so much to do that sometimes I found it necessary to opt out of the adventurous
stuff and just wander around.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


I hope so. Mexico appears to be a country of very many parts so the local people need help. Our guide was brilliant and encouraged us to listen to and buy from street sellers and explained why they were working as they did, how they lived and how we might be able to help.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


Utterly brilliant. I have had the time of my life.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


The hubbub of Mexico City and all the sights and museums within (we could only sample a few, regretfully!); and the laid back charm of San Cristobal with its streets, processions and central plaza activities.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


- Be ready for temperature variations - from cold/nippy to warm/hot!
- For vegetarians, be ready for limited eating options;
- for those who haven't had Mescal in the past, don't be worried - it tastes great, as do the salted and fried crickets served along side!
- for all, most mobile phone cameras are inadequate to capture the majesty of the various archeological sites and wonders you will see.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


Yes, there is a benefit to the local economy - but I'm not sure about other aspects.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


Very good - will recommend without hesitation.
