Mexico is a mosaic of different realities and beauties.
The truth is that the history of Mexico is a history in the image of its geography: abrupt and tortuous. Each historical period is like a plateau surrounded by tall mountains and separated from the other plateaus by precipices and divides. Octavio Paz
This exciting new small group, guided Tour explores the confluence between pre-Columbian, colonial and modern day Mexico – such a fascinating and multi-layered country. In mythology Mexico was variously known as the Navel of the Moon, the Foundation of Heaven and the Sea-Ringed World.
The tapestry we explore ranges from iconic artists such as Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera, and the famed architecture of Luis Barragán, to the contemporary art scene that is burgeoning in Mexico city; the astounding pyramids, burial grounds and cosmologies created during the Mesoamerican cultures of the Toltecs, the Maya and the Aztecs; the legacy of the New Spain as Mexico was called by the Spanish conquerors who derived enormous wealth and built in a variety of styles from Renaissance, Churrigueresque Baroque to Neo-Classical. Mexico has more sites on the UNESCO World Heritage list than any other country in the Americas.
In inimitable Art of Living style, we also seek out regional cuisines and craft traditions and learn how Mezcal is made, the finest of which is comparable to an excellent cognac.
