A pyramid of the Sun and Moon that you have never seen before. This trip across the sky over Teotihuacan at dawn is worth dragging yourself out of bed. Most tourists in Mexico City take a 30-minute trip to this 1,800-year-old archaeological site, but how many of them can say they flew over it in a hot air balloon?

2. A dive into the ethereal underwater world off Isla Mujeres

Not only is Mexico home to the second largest reef in the world (after the Great Barrier Reef in Australia), but it’s also home to an underwater museum: the MUSA. The crystal clear water makes it the perfect place to snorkel around the creepy figures that stand at the seafloor and stare at the surface. There’s even a VW Bug busy with colorful fish and other sea life.

3. exploring the North Lacandon home

The tropical state of Chiapas is home to the Northern Lacandon, a Mayan people who still hold on to many of their pre-Columbian traditions. Hike through the jungles of Lacandon and take a boat ride to explore beautiful Lake Metzaboc – listen for roaring monkeys and watch for crocodiles as you make the crossing.

4. train tour of Copper Canyon

Perhaps one of the most impressive train rides you’ll ever take, this trip through Chihuahua Copper Canyon, one of the world’s largest canyon systems, introduces you to the high mountains and deep gorges of this region in northern Mexico. Jump off at various stops to explore the small local settlements scattered along the trails.

5. Swim with gentle sea giants on a day trip from Cancun

During the summer months, when the sea is plankton-rich, whale sharks congregate north of Isla Mujeres (off the coast of Cancun). You don’t need to know how to dive to swim with these huge mammals that glide effortlessly through the water … just jump right in.

Head into the wild waters of Veracruz to raft the Whitewater River with some of the most epic rivers in the world. Steep descents and narrow canyons make this Mexico experience challenging and determined.

Accessible only by boat, Yaxchilan makes you feel like a real Indiana Jones. Start your adventure with a trip down the Usumasinta River before you disembark to explore this Mayan city in the middle of the jungle, with seiba trees so big you can climb into the roots. Roaring monkeys roar around, giving the ruins a haunting atmosphere.

9. A walk through a stratovolcano near Mexico City

Just 50 miles west of Mexico City, the 1,550-meter summit of Nevado de Toluca is often covered in snow, and the climb can be…intense. Nevertheless, your efforts are rewarded every step of the way with views of the surrounding mountain peaks (some of the highest in Mexico) and valley lakes far below.

10. Exploring Tolantongo’s caves and hot springs

Decorated caves, powerful waterfalls, natural thermal springs and a bright blue river system make the Canyon Resort complex in Tolantongo, Hidalgo, a great place to visit. You can swim in waters that reach 100° F or explore grottoes covered with stalactites and stalagmites. For extra adventure, zipline over the water or rent a tent and camp overnight.

11. Flyboarding over the ocean in Puerto Vallarta

Those who have always wanted to play this scene in Back to the Future II should head to Puerto Vallarta. Rushing through the air over the sea, fed by pressurized water jets … it feels like you’re flying.

Top Impressions

  • Explore Mexico City, Latin America’s largest city and a world-class cultural center.

In 2002, as a teenager, I took my first trip abroad. While in the middle of the Alps, I realized: the world is too beautiful and diverse to stay in one place, and I need to see it all and interact with other people who feel the same way. Today, having visited over 55 countries, I’m working with my team on small group adventure tours to some of the most exciting and unusual places in Mexico and North and South America. Dare to see them with us!
