Description

DEPART Chicago

Our journey begins as we depart on our flights to Mexico City. Upon arrival at Mexico City airport, we will meet our tour guide and bus driver welcoming us to Mexico. After loading our luggage, we will take the bus and drive to our hotel in Puebla for our first dinner and overnight in Mexico.

Day 2:

OCOTLAN/PUEBLA

After breakfast, we drive to Ocotlan to visit the pilgrimage Church and see the image of our Lady of Ocotlan, where an apparition to Juan Diego in 1541 miraculously burned into the trunk of an oak tree. Then we will return to Puebla and visit the Monastery of Santo Domingo with the beautiful Dome of the Rosary Chapel and Puebla Cathedral dedicated to the Immaculate Conception. Lastly, we take a leisurely walk in the Parian Market before going to the hotel for dinner and overnight.

Day 3:

PUEBLA /CHOLULA/TAXCO

We depart our hotel and drive towards Cholula to visit XVI Century San Gabriel Monastery. Afterward, we enjoy a panoramic tour of the city of Cholula, including a visit to two fantastic ultra-Mexican baroque Churches of Santa Maria Tonantzintla and San Francisco Acatepec. In the afternoon, we drive to Taxco, the country’s mining capital with its narrow, cobblestone streets. Dinner and overnight.

We will be amazed by the Pyramids of the Sun and Moon and the mile-long Avenue of the Dead framed by countless monumental structures.
