This Mexico City Travelzoo deal connects you with a tour operator that will guide you through three of Mexico’s coolest cities — Mexico City, Puebla, and Oaxaca City — on a seven-night trip with lodging and transfers included.
The tour is food-focused, of course, since each stop is in a city known for its gastronomy and culinary history. You’ll fly between the cities (flights included in tour price) and have plenty of time to walk around and eat your heart out with street food, fine dining, and everything in between.
Choose your travel dates and customize the trip. Prices start at $1,829 for seven nights. You can add more nights in any of the three cities, and what you do along the way is entirely up to you (though suggestions for the best food experiences are provided.) This trip is perfect for those who like to craft their own daily itinerary but don’t want to deal with the tricky logistics of individually booking flights and hotels.
Mexico City, commonly known as CDMX, will be your hub for the first three nights of this tour. The city is the largest in both North and South America, home to some 21 million people. Its central neighborhoods of Centro Historico, Condesa, Polanco, and Roma Norte are popular tourist spots and home to many well-known restaurants, shops, and museums.
Puebla’s historic park and square Zócalo is ringed by the towers of the Puebla Cathedral, a small taste of the colonial-era architecture that this city is known for. Mole poblano, often considered Mexico’s national dish, originated here and is available in many of the city’s cafes and restaurants for lunch and dinner. Be sure to sample, and compare with the many varieties of mole available on the tour’s final stop.
Oaxaca is the heart of two of Mexico’s mouthwatering masterpieces, mole and mezcal. You’d have to abstain from multiple offers if you were to not experience both here, the former available in seven different varieties ranging from red to black and best when drizzled over grilled chicken and served with a side of fresh corn tortillas. The latter, mezcal, is the smoky cousin of tequila, produced from agave grown in the hills outside of Oaxaca City. Mezcalerias, bars specific to the tasting of mezcal, are common in the city center. Try it neat or as the base of a cocktail.
This Mexico City Travelzoo deal is fully refundable if your plans change and allows you to choose your travel dates.
