Mexico's Magical Colonial Cities


tour: YG 9 days from Mexico City to Guadalajara
For centuries, Mexico’s signature molé Poblano has dazzled the palate with its dizzying number of surprising ingredients, including fruit, chocolate, and chili peppers among the list of twenty or more components to the savory sauce. The varied sights and sounds of Colonial Mexico have the same astonishing effect on those who venture down its cobblestone streets and narrow alleyways. For it’s here that you can see Baroque architecture reminiscent of the Old World, museums that rival Europe’s finest, and even a pyramid wider than any in Egypt. With visits to five UNESCO World Heritage sites, including the pink-spired, 17th-century church of San Miguel de Allende, this tour of Mexico takes you back in time while leading you to some of today’s most magnificent scenery. From the rainbow-lined sidewalks of Guanajuato to the inviting plazas of Guadalajara, you’ll be shimmying to mariachi music, sipping mezcal and margaritas, and shouting everyone’s favorite word, Tequila!
