Mexicans are some of the friendliest people you'll ever meet. Eager to share their wealth of history and abundant culture with anyone interested, they are truly wonderful people. Sadly, many travellers will skip Mexico entirely due to its reputation, which is entirely unfair.
Mexico is the world's largest Spanish-speaking country and with 130 million, ranks as the eleventh most populous
nation. Pre-Columbian Mexico dates to about 8,000 BC and is identified as one of five cradles of civilisation. Home to many advanced Mesoamerican civilisations such as the Olmec, Toltec, Teotihuacan, Zapotec, Mayan,
and Aztec before the first contact with Europeans. In 1521, the Spanish Empire conquered and colonised the territory from its politically powerful base in Mexico-Tenochtitlan (part of Mexico City). Three centuries later, the territory became a nation-state following its recognition in 1821 after the Mexican War of Independence. Our tour of Mexico starts in Mexico City and then moves south-east taking in the UNESCO heritage sites of Monte Alban, the greatest of the Zapotec
cities, Teotihuacan, the most sacred of the Aztec sites and the Mayan sites of Palenque, Uxmal and Chichen Itza. We will savour some wonderful Mexican food and music, visit a mezcal distillery, travel by boat down the Sumidero Canyon and end up in the Yucatan Peninsula on the Caribbean coast before we fly on to Guatemala.
With 65% of its population Mayan Indian, Guatemala is Central America’s most indigenous nation. This fact delivers a very rich cultural heritage. It’s a relatively small country at just 110,000 square kilometres and is bordered by Mexico, Honduras, Belize and El Salvador. It has a unique ecosystem attracting scientists and “green” travellers from all around the world. Regular seismic activity is due to the 33 volcanoes on the Pacific Rim. The first evidence of civilisation dates back 10,000 years, but it is best known for its Mayan culture of around 300 AD. One of Guatemala's highlights has to be the traditional market of Chichicastenango (meaning place of poison ivy). The colours, the people, the produce is a must see.
While we only spend a few nights in Honduras, you will have the privilege of enjoying one of the great archaeological sites of the Mayans – The Ruins of Copan. So sophisticated was this ancient city, it later became known as the Paris of the Mayan Empire.
