I am very happy to present the next season of travel with Marina in Mexico. On this occasion I have added some new routes, such as Hidalgo, and I have also made interesting changes to enjoy each destination to the fullest. I have made sure that on each trip we can enjoy traditional festivals in indigenous villages or cultural experiences that take place only once a year, such as the fair in Chapala, Jalisco, or the Original Festival in Mexico City. And for the first time I have dedicated an entire trip to one of my favorite destinations: Puebla.
This year, we will celebrate 13 years and I am extremely grateful to all of you for making one of my great desires come true: sharing the beauty and greatness of Mexico, and I continue to invite all my friends who are weavers, ceramists, carvers, artists, jewelers, dancers, traditional cooks, chefs, musicians and poets to continue inspiring all those traveling the beautiful roads of México. Welcome 2024 and its thousands of adventures with Marina in México. With love & gratitude, Marina Aguirre, PhD.
*** Marina in Mexico tours visit many Pueblos Mágicos; they are excellent opportunities to discover the charm and color of México. The 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. ***
Chiapas and its Magic

This is my signature trip. Every step of this trip will help you to be immersed in the Maya culture.

Finally, you will be invited to join the colorful festivals in several villages in the Highlands of Chiapas. You will be close to the popular religiosity of the Maya culture and have the sensation of a time tunnel experience.

Hidalgo is a versatile and generous state. Perhaps what I like most about visiting it is the kindness of its people and the colors in their cultural expressions. This trip is for you if you are looking to travel new paths and fall in love with the great terroir, that is, that place where generosity and creativity flow.

Oaxaca Full of Color
October 19-27, 2024
Oaxaca has always been in our thoughts and hearts. Now it will be on our palate and also in the magnificent moments that we will experience when designing unique spaces, where we will celebrate the importance of the lives of our loved ones and also honor their memory, always in intimacy, closeness and in the devotion of loving them for always. But we will have an advantage; we will go to Oaxaca just a week before the other travelers arrive. This will add intimacy and authenticity to every moment we will spend in the beautiful indigenous communities of the central valleys of Oaxaca. If you want to close the cycle of a loved one who has passed away and you want to honor their life with love, I recommend this trip, you will be reborn and heal. I promise you!
