Day 1: Arrival in Mexico City

Mexico City, once the capital of the Aztec Empire, has in the valley of the nation’s capital, a population exceeding 22 million people. All ov er you can find the heritage of the Pre-Hispanic societies that populated or influenced the configuration of such a colossal urban settlement. A new architecture was enforced by the colonizers using as foundation for the new buildings the religious monuments of the existing people. Churches were placed on top of the aborigine temples and today you find colonial churches with rich and artistic furnishings and in some cases next to the church, what was not used as a foundation, has been uncovered to its original archeological formation. Mexico City has a historic district which central square is known as the Zocalo, right in the center of the city.

Day 2: City Tour - Mexico City & Anthropology Museum

After an included breakfast, you board a Mexico City guided tour visiting major attractions. We start where it all began, at the Zocalo. You will see the National Palace with an extended series of mural paintings that show a graphic evolution of the history of the country which were painted by Diego Rivera. The Metropolitan Cathedral, the oldest and largest cathedral in Latin America, is a spectacular building intended to distract the Aztec people from their own previous believes and convert them to the new religion. Right behind the Cathedral you can find the “Tenochtitlan Templo Mayor Pyramids” which were part of the big ceremonial center of the Aztecs. Templo Mayor was not only the most visible sight of an immense aborigine urban complex, but also represented the cosmic center of the universe for the Aztecs. You will drive by the Palacio de Bellas Artes, a 19th Century all white marble building functioning as a theater as well as an art museum, with many fine sculptures. To get a feeling of the city you will drive along the Paseo de la Reforma Avenue which was inspired by the “Champs Elysees” of Paris until you reach and visit the National Anthropology Museum, the largest in its type in the world.

Day 7: Merida – Chichen Itza – Cancun or Riviera Maya Hotel

On the seventh day, we will transit just over 2 hours to Chichen Itza, the Mayan Post Classic Sacred City, which represents the most intact and impressive of the ruins of the Mayan Civilization that the modern world still preserves. Chichen Itza has a huge “Cenote”, a big pond nourished by underground rivers which supplied clean water to the complex. Chichen Itza, "The Mouth of the Well” as other Mayan centres was originally a ceremonial and spiritual site, more than a commercial area. Chichen Itza has maybe the most impressive pyramid of the entire Maya world. The Castle has 4 staircases (one for each season of the year) with 91 steps each, totalling 365 with the top platform. The orientation of the pyramid is such that for about an hour around 4 o'clock during the spring and fall equinoxes (March 21st & September 21st), the shadow of north-west edge of the pyramid on the side of the north stairway, draws seven triangles of light that imitates a serpent creeping downwards until it joins the huge serpent's head at the bottom of the stairway. This was a religious message telling the people it was time to seed the land or it was time to harvest with the blessing of their God Kukulcan. At Chichen Itza, you will see an astrological observatory with a design similar to others built in the Modern Age. There are many more buildings such as The Temple of the Warriors, part of the "Thousand Columns Complex", the Temple of the Jaguars and the Ball Court. Chichen Itza was voted one of the Modern Seven Wonders of the World in 2009. After a visit of almost 2 hours, you will have lunch and we will then transit to Cancun.
