Trade-in airport food for authentic Mexican tacos, the lounge for the Bosque de Chapultepec and souvenir stores for the real deal!

Allow one of our Mexican hosts to bust you out of the airport and onto the green, historic, bustling streets of Mexico City, where there’s so much to discover, regardless of your time constraints.

Maximize the limited hours you have to spend in Mexico’s fascinating capital and explore a historic neighborhood, like Coyoacán, where you can wander off to find La Casa Azul, the previous home of Mexican icon Frida Kahlo. Stretch out your legs in a nearby park, before those legs take you to a nearby street food vendor.

Where do we begin? Tamales, tacos, conchas, you name it, it just tastes better in Mexico, and with good company. 

Luckily, you have both good company and are in Mexico.

Time for a spot of shopping at a local market, and grab some last minute gifts for those at home, all before you’re signed, sealed and delivered back to the airport in time for your flight, your host will make sure of it!
