WHAT TO EXPECT

The impact of pre-Hispanic civilizations in central Mexico is impossible to miss. From the Toltecs to the Aztecs, we explore the remains of these ancient civilizations — towering pyramids and temple structures galore — and delve deeper into their history. Discover stunning examples of vibrant artwork across sites and museum exhibits; and compare how styles have changed, and in some cases stayed the same across time. Archaeology is of course our focus, but there’s so much more to Mexico. From the breath-taking dance of the flying men; to Mexican basket weaving; and the fusion of Mesoamerican and European tastes that make Mexican food simply irresistible.
