Every year Journey Mexico invites a select group of our elite travel partners to join us on a research and familiarization trip to let us show them what traveling with Journey Mexico is like. This year we decided to also have a 7-day research trip, hitting some of the most iconic attractions in Central Mexico: Teotihuacan, Mexico City, Michoacán and Puebla. Our guests had the chance to fly over Teotihuacan’s pyramids, try Puebla’s renowned cuisine and sit in the forest as thousands of monarch butterflies flew around them.
Take a look at the following pictures and see some of the best moments of our trip.
