Mexico City

Mexico’s city is massive, energetic, and frankly, misunderstood. Go a little deeper and you’ll discover a dynamic, multi-faceted city brimming with culture, history and character.


Poised along the Caribbean coast of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, Tulum is famed for its crystal-clear turquoise water, cenotes (underwater caves), and well-preserved Mayan archaeological site.


Colorful, spirited and deeply rooted in traditions: Oaxaca is the Mexico that people dream of. It truly captures the soul of the country like nowhere else, with its flamboyant festivals, indigenous culture and historic architecture.

San Miguel de Allende

Pastel colored colonial buildings and leafy green parks line the enchanting cobblestoned streets; church bell towers ring and the smell of jacaranda flowers fill the air. With a magical setting and a distinct European flair, San Miguel de Allende has stolen the hearts of many, including mine.
