México’s perfect white sand beaches, rugged canyons, tropical jungles, and arid plains are inhabited by some of the planet’s nicest people, all of whom enjoy some of the world’s best food. The same is true for México’s megacities, colonial hamlets, and dusty outposts. Our neighbor to the south truly has it all, yet few visitors experience the real México. Our programs will show travelers the authentic fabric of México, from small food stalls of México City to pre-Columbian Zapotec ruins, as we travel between México City and the cultural breadbasket of Oaxaca. With traveler safety foremost in mind, we will challenge students to view México in a different light by introducing them to natural and historical wonders, and rewarding them with the adventure of a lifetime.
The next generation of global leaders are in your classroom. Together, we will unlock their potential.
