MEXICO

DATES

December 2018 - January 2019

ITINERARY:

Mexico is a big country so I would recommend at least two weeks to explore bits of it. We were there for 3 weeks and that still didn't feel enough. We decided to make our trip a beach, cultural one. We mixed beaches, with crafty towns and ruins. In order to do this itinerary you'll have to get on a couple of night buses. Best way to plan these long journeys is to download the ADO app', the national bus service.
