Best time to Visit

Good time to visit

Average time to visit

The South-Central Highlands of Mexico are good to visit for much of the year, although rainy season in Oaxaca usually lasts from June to October, when it can also be quite cold. The best months to visit are from November to May, which are the sunnier months throughout the country and outside of the official hurricane season. It can get hot and humid on the Caribbean coast and in the afternoons there may be occasional short sharp tropical showers but these usually give way to sunny weather.

  1. Fly to Mexico City

  2. Days 1-4: Mexico City

    Mexico City, home to some of the world's top restaurants and mouth-watering street food venues. Fresh seafood gets shipped in from Veracruz and there is no shortage of other delights, from tacos in all manner of flavours to natural sweets. Stay for 3 nights in the upmarket neighbourhood of Polanco, at boutique Las Alcobas which boasts a critically acclaimed restaurant by chef Martha Ortiz, as well as a top concierge service who can recommend other incredible restaurants in the area. During your stay, embark on a guided taco tour to sample some of the city's best. Or take to the skies and discover the vineyards of San Miguel de Allende by helicopter, which are recognised for their world-class wines.

    Accommodation: Las Alcobas (3 nights)

  3. Days 4-7: Puebla

    Next head to the colonial town of Puebla, known for its variety of cuisine and delicious mole Poblano, a rich and delectable sauce which regularly accompanies meat or poultry dishes across the country.  Puebla has a spectacular backdrop of volcanoes and enough churches for every day of the year. As well as being famed for its impressive baroque architecture and hand painted talavera pottery.  Spend some time at the hotel Meson Sacristia de la Compania which boasts its own cookery school and is the perfect place to get to know some of Mexico's most iconic dishes. Explore the city and eat your way around its many charming pavement cafés and gourmet restaurants.
