Full description

Take 2 of the most popular day trips from Mexico City on consecutive days and explore 3 of the country's most fascinating locations. Travel back in time to the colonial era and marvel at the monuments of Cholula, Puebla, and Taxco.

See one of Mexico's grandest cathedrals, get stunning views of the volcanoes of Popocatepetl and Iztaccihuatl, get the opportunity to buy traditional crafts, and more.

Day 1: Puebla and Cholula

Benefit from pick-up at your centrally located meeting point in Mexico City, and journey to the historical cities of Cholula and Puebla. Take a 2-hour journey that passes through mountains and offers breathtaking views of the beautiful Popocatepetl and Iztaccihuatl volcanoes.

Upon arrival in Cholula, admire the hundreds of churches and visit the impressive Church of Santa María de Tonantzintla, built in an indigenous-Baroque style that stands out for its interior of gold and wealth of decorative elements. Continue to the city of Puebla, located just 15 minutes from Cholula. Popularly known as the “City of Angels,” Puebla is one of the 5 most important colonial cities in Mexico. Enjoy a delicious lunch (not included) to experience the gastronomic variety of the city.

Choose from a simple and traditional semita (small, sweet loaves) or the exquisite and laborious mole poblano (a thick, rich, chocolate-tinged sauce). 

Then, take a walking tour through the historical center and see the 16th and 18th-century buildings along with the main Plaza de Armas (also known as the "Zócalo"). Admire the cathedral, which began in 1575 under the orders of Philip II of Spain.

Take a look at the Church of Santo Domingo with its portal of a pure classic style, and then experience the buzz of the crafts market and find beautiful and traditional Talavera figurines. Sample sweet treats, such as sweet potatoes prepared in different flavors.

Return to your original meeting point for drop-off at the end of the day. 

Day 2: Taxco and Prehispanic Mine

Continue to the colonial city of Taxco, and journey through hundreds of years of history along the cobblestone streets and cozy squares. Feel the strong old-world ambiance that has withstood the passing of time, and discover the Church of Santa Prisca.

See and buy art pieces from Mexican artisans. Then, discover an incredible pre-Hispanic mine and find out how the ancient residents extracted precious materials before the conquest.
