Local Mexico Experts
The trip.me way of travel
Mexico is very much a year-round destination, with temperatures typically varying from moderate to hot. During summer and fall hurricanes hit both Mexican coasts so be alert.
Generally speaking the lowest temperatures you’ll find in Mexico are in the Valley of Mexico, where at nighttime you can expect a cool 16 degrees. Elsewhere temperatures will be from 20 to 30 degrees, with the hottest area being the Yucatan Peninsula.
No doubt anyone looking to go on a Mexico tour is already aware of the country’s unique culture. Mexico’s vibrant colors, morbid decorations and rampant surrealism all make for a magical and confusing experience – one you won’t forget in a hurry.
Mexico’s rich culture comes as a result of its complicated, difficult history. Indigenous cultures have blended and/or been wiped out during 300 years of Spain’s colonization, meaning the culture as a whole has absorbed many facets of diverse cultures to become the remarkable place it is today.
Mexico is one of Latin America’s most prolific and renowned purveyors of the arts with a host of literary giants and classics of cinema coming out of the country’s borders. On Mexico tours you’ll undoubtedly learn about its rich tapestry of artists, from the surreal to the romantic, that have infused the culture with such vibrancy. Today Mexico still stands as a strong example for Latin American countries in the arts – it continues to produce great works and cities such as Mexico City buzz with artistic energy.
Mexican food is an integral part of Mexican culture, and on tours of Mexico you’ll delight in sampling the culinary riches on offer. If you’ve ever been frustrated by someone claiming that the Mexican restaurant you’re in “doesn’t taste like real Mexican food” then, well, prepare to become that person.
To be sure, Mexican food deserves an article by itself, but you’ll find it to be rich in spice, big on variety, and often containing staple ingredients such as corn, chilies, cheese and meat.
Come prepared for the hot stuff.
We were very pleased with the services from Trip.Me and Carola. She put together a good plan for us, made a change in itinerary and hotel that we requested and matched us with a great driver and guide, Rosario.
I would be happy to give feedback on the hotels, especially La Purificadora in Puebla, beautiful design but had some problems.
The driver was very good and the bus was very comfortable.
Dans l’ensemble bonne organisation de notre voyage. Deux bonnes prestations de guides tant à Chichen Itza qu’à Mérida.
Un bémol cependant avec l’hotel Santa Lucia de Merida qui nous a octroyé une chambre excessivement bruyante donnant sur la rue.
Dans ce même hotel la prestation petit déjeuner n’est pas à la hauteur. On nous a réclamé un supplément pour une deuxième tasse de thé.
Carola was very responsive and gave prompt and excellent feedback in the development stage of the journey. Once we were there the trip went without a hassle: driver and guide were punctual, informed, reliable, and took initiative. My only suggestion would be to make sure the trip on the ground works out as planned with regard to museum closings, etc. Our original plan was to see museums on a date when they would have been closed. Our guide was on top of that and rearranged the schedule to make sure we could see them when they were open. Our hotel rooms were fine. We had requested 4 star. When we go back to Mexico we will probably bump them up to five star, but still there are no complaints. Our traveling companion, who had a single supplement, seemed to always get the rooms at the back, or the ones without windows. She wasn't very happy about that.Read More Read More Less
