        Itinerary

        Day 1

        HOLA MEXICO CITY!

        Welcome to frenetic Mexico City and get ready to soak up that red-hot latin vibe. Arrive at any time (we can help recommend flights) and we’ll be at the airport ready to take you back to your hotel. Unpack, relax, settle-in and the hotel is well located for you to go for a sneak peak of this buzzing mega city. In the evening we’ll meet for a welcome introduction and then enjoy some dinner and cocktails while you get to know your fellow travellers.

        HISTORY, TACOS & TEQUILLA

        Time to get out and see what all the hype is about! We’ll meet with Mexico City native, Carlos, and take a behind the scenes wander through the ‘Centro Histrico’ district. You’ll learn about the city’s fascinating history – from the Aztecs, to Spanish colonisation, through to modern day – and get an inside perspective on what life’s like for the locals. En route we’ll stop off at our favourite food market where you’ll enjoy the most delicious Mexican street food (seriously)! And of course, we couldn’t come all the way to Mexico without sampling the local tipple. Yep, we end the day with some tequila tasting.

        This morning we’ll head south of the city to visit the enchanting canals of Xochimilco. Here we’ll hop on a trajinera boat and cruise along enjoying the lively atmosphere of passing food vendors, artisans and mariachi bands. It’s oh so very Mexican! In the afternoon we’ll visit the Frida Kahlo museum and explore the nearby bohemian neighbourhood of Coyoacán. We’ll then top off a busy day with a lively night out at the city’s must-experience local sport –  Lucha Libre (Mexican wrestling).

Local farmers will teach us the traditional techniques from harvesting the agave plant all the way through to distillation and we’ll finish off with a traditional lunch and a round of mezcal tasting.

        Free day to explore. There’s a huge variety of things to do. If you’re a foodie then Oaxaca is world renowned for gastronomy and is the perfect place to enjoy an authentic Mexican cooking class. For nature lovers the spectacular Hierve el Agua is a must visit, with it’s stunning landscapes and “petrified waterfall” rock formations. And for the more active, the neighbouring Sierra Norte offers breathtaking hiking trails through rugged mountains and indigeneous villages.

        BEACH TIME!

        Today we head to the coast as we make our way to Tulum, the small and stylish beach town located in Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula. It’s a stunning setting where golden sandy beaches and crystal clear Caribbean sea blend in perfect harmony with the ancient ruins of a former Mayan port city. Following a short flight from Oaxaca you can check into your hotel and then go grab a margarita and settle in to your new exotic surroundings.

We’ll bike quiet roads, lush forest trails and scenic beach paths to discover the full diversity of this fantastic little town. We’ll visit the Mayan ruins and learn about their rich cultural heritage. We’ll discover diverse ecosystems and stop off for a dip in some of the most breathtaking Cenotes (crystal clear swimming holes formed within vast cave systems).

        YOGA & CHILL DAY

        We’ll ease our way in with an early morning yoga session and then the rest of the day is yours to enjoy this beachside paradise. Maybe it could be that chill day you’ve been waiting for – the perfect opportunity to relax on the beach? Or if you prefer to be more active you could do some kayaking, stand up paddle boarding or even head into the pueblo and browse the many boutique stores on offer. For our last evening in Mexico we’ll share one final group dinner and (just maybe) say farewell over a mojito or two.

        Day 11

        BYE (FOR NOW)

        What an epic adventure it has been. You’ve felt the buzz of thriving Mexico city, wandered the cobbled streets of charming Oaxaca, and breathed the warm sea breeze of Tulum. You’ve biked prehistoric ruins, shared tequila with agave farmers, swam in natural cave formations and chanted wildly at Mexican wrestlers. More than that you’ve gained a genuine insight into the richness of Mexican culture and met some amazing people along the way. Until the next adventure.

        “Head and Shoulders Above the Rest”

        Having been on numerous group holidays with more than 5 different companies, my standards are high and I can honestly say that Other Way Round is head and shoulders above all of them.

        “Not Mass Produced or Touristy”

        What I loved about this trip was that it didn’t feel mass produced and touristy. There was a sense of originality to it and uniqueness about the trip and the itinerary.

        “Completely Hassle Free”

        I usually travel DIY, where I arrange and book everything myself, and it was such a welcome change to have all that time and stress of booking the different elements of the trip taken away from me.

        “Trip of a Lifetime”

        I will never forget this trip. Not only because of the country itself, but because of the experience that Other Way Round gave me and the other group members. It was a trip of a lifetime and you will be missing out if you don’t just book it!

        Important Notes

        Am I a good fit for an OWR trip?

        We know it’s important to you to choose the right tour company for you.

        And equally, for us, it’s super important that we get the right people joining our trips (people who are likely to get the most out of it).

        We’d therefore appreciate if you could please read the following page carefully before signing up: OWR Trip Style

        Are international flights included?

        No.

        International flights are not included in the price of our tours. This is something you would book yourself seperately.

        Which airports should I fly into?

        Our trip starts in Mexico City (MEX) and ends in Tulum, where Cancun (CUN) is the nearest international airport. You should organise your flights accordingly.

        You can arrive at any point on the first day.

        You can leave at any time on the last day. There are no activities scheduled for that day.

        If you need help researching flights, contact us at [email protected] or fill out the contact form on this page.

        Are airport transfers included?

        Yes, they are included at both the start and end of every trip.

        Notes

        • We only do transfers between airports and our selected hotels. No other locations.
        • For this specific trip we will only do the departure transfer for those leaving on the last day of the trip. We will have multiple group transfers leaving on that day and you can select which is most ideal for you. We do not do transfers for those tagging on extra days (this is due to the distance between Tulum and Cancun airport).

        Can I book a private room?

        Yes.

        Our standard prices are based on sharing a twin hotel room with one other person of the same gender.

        However, if you prefer a private then you can select this option for £600 / $700 extra.

        Just let us know at the time of booking.

        Can I book pre and/or post accommodation?

        Yes, we can book you in for extra days at either our arrival hotel or departure hotel.

        This is up to a maximum of 2 days on either side. If for longer, we suggest you book directly with the hotel.

        Contact us at [email protected] for rates.

        I’m traveling solo, will I be the only one?

        No.

        Our trips are specifically designed for solo travelers so you will fit in perfectly.

        Some people may bring a friend but the majority will always be traveling solo.

        How do I book?

        You contact us either via the contact form on this site or by emailing us at [email protected].

        You confirm your name, your age, which country you are based in and you tell us the destination and dates you would like to join.

        We then send you an electronic invoice to collect your deposit payment.

        To reserve a spot you pay a £200 / $250 deposit and then the remaining balance must be paid by 60 days before the trip.

        If your booking is within 60 days, then you must pay the full balance at that point.

        Is the deposit refundable?

        No, the deposit is non-refundable.

        However, if you can no longer make the trip you can transfer that deposit onto any other future trip.

        Do you have payment plans?

        Yes.

        We can either split your balance into even monthly payments, or we can set it up so you can pay any smaller amounts as and when you like.

        Just let us know at the time of booking.

        Visas, vaccinations & packing lists?

        Two months before your trip you will receive a comprehensive pre-trip pack which tells you everything you need to get prepared for the trip (including info on visas, vaccinations & packing lists).

        In general, most of our guests don’t need visas to come to Mexico.

        Do you cater for special dietary requirements?

        Yes.

        We cater for vegetarian, vegan, gluten free and other dietary requirements. We will always make sure there are options available to you in the restaurants we visit.

        Please be aware though that there will not likely be the same range of options as you have available in your home country.

        Will I get to meet other members of the group before the trip?

        Yes.

        In the week before the trip we will create a WhatsApp group with all the people joining the trip. This is a great opportunity to connect ahead of the trip.

        Are the hotels listed on the website the actual hotels you use?

        Generally yes, it will be these hotels.

        From time to time we may need to change a specific hotel if for example it’s not available on those given dates. But in such situations, we will always replace with another hotel at the same quality.

        What’s the cancellation policy?

        The £200/$250 deposit is non-refundable. However, if you need to cancel at any point, you can put this towards any future trip you book with us (in any location).

        The rest of the balance is refundable up until two months before the trip. From that point we have to start committing funds to local suppliers and so:-

        > 30-60 days before trip – 50% refund

        > 0–30 days before trip – 0% refund

        But, we also recommend that you take out travel insurance to cover you for any unexpected last-minute cancellation.
