It’s easy to go to on a vacation somewhere you’ve never been before, hit up the monuments or “must sees” and grab food at a few places before returning to the comfort of your own home. If you travel this way there’s nothing wrong with it, but the Places.Travel team is keen on trying unique experiences everywhere we go.
Here’s our top list of experiences that Airbnb offers in Mexico City with local guides:
1. Purify Your Life By Steam
On this trip, you’re able to enter a steam bath with aromatic herbs and lava stones, accompanied by therapeutic music and shaman drums.
2. The Real Flavors of Mexico
On this trip, you will be taken on a culinary experience that goes beyond simple street food or upscale restaurants. Immerse yourself in a true Mexican breakfast at a traditional “Fonda” where they use clay pots. The best part about this trip is that you’re able to go behind the counter at a traditional Mexican market and learn how to cook the street food yourself. Hell. Yes.
3. Mexico City, Underground
Join David, and explore all kinds of underground tunnels and passageways, attractions, historical stations, ancient ruins, cultural exhibits and folk open spaces that most others may not get to see when doing the typical attraction tour of Mexico City.
4. Taco Crawl With A Food Critic
Taco crawl gives you the ultimate taco tour of Mexico City. Each shop is completely different from ambiance to flavor, so you’re in for a very fulfilling experience for both your tourist side and foodie side. Oh, and you get a Torta too!
5. Coffee Tour – Mexican Specialty Coffee
If you’re a coffee lover, this is the experience for you. You will be taken through the methods of extraction and tasting notes and flavors all while enjoying Mexico City’s finest coffee shops.
6. Learn About Mexican Heritage
Not all private tours are created equal. In fact, private tours can suck depending on how many people are in your group and how fast everyone wants to move. I’m all about go-go-go when it comes to my tours and a true private tour for you and your friends or family is the way to go. Enjoy rich history as you’re guided through Mexican customs and traditions in a way that really sheds light on ancient Mexico.
