2022-23 Tours

After waiting months to begin traveling again, we have restored our cultural tours throughout Mexico. We have followed all health protocols to provide the best conditions possible and take care of each detail, and we are optimistic about the near future and the many trips to come. Like every season, we like to add one or two new trips to the list of cultural tours that allow us to savor and enjoy the best of Mexico and its Pueblos Magicos.* More and more travelers are interested in discovering the colorful villages and the stories behind the artists and enjoying the flavors of markets and Mexican delicatessen. Thank you for being part of Marina in Mexico and helping me share the best of the hundreds of places this beautiful country offers. I hope you will be delighted by one of our trips designed just for you and your group of friends.
With love & gratitude,  Marina Aguirre, PhD.

*México’s Pueblos Mágicos program includes villages and towns that are rich in symbols and traditions, and have their own characteristics that make them unique and vibrant. Their gastronomy, history, music, historical monuments, and cultural riches invite visitors to discover their secrets and beauty at every step. Visiting a Pueblo Mágico is an excellent opportunity to discover the charm and color of México.
