Mexico City: Artful Exploration
June 4 - 8, 2021
Time seems to stop when you’re suspended in air at dawn, above 2,000-year-old monuments built for Aztec gods. As you gently float in a hot-air balloon, Teotihuacán pyramids sprawl out in full geometric glory, as the sunrise streaks the ancient stonework a dusty rose. Somewhere far away is bustling, enchanting Mexico City, with its endless clamor and jumble, its aromas of sizzling barbecued meats, charred corn, sharp salsas. But you’re not quite ready to return yet. You need to keep floating a little longer first, soaking in the quiet, the dawn, the gods.
If your idea of paradise is spending mornings sopping up cinnamon-tinged hot chocolate with freshly fried churros, afternoons sipping smoky mezcals and evenings cheering on masked luchadores, this trip is for you. We’ll float down ancient Aztec canals and tour vibrant neighborhoods. No matter how much you already know about Mexican culture and Mexican food, this journey will teach you, delight you—and leave you hungry for more.

Four Seasons HotelMexico City
Classic architecture and masterful design in the heart of Mexico City's central business district. A top-to-bottom renovation in 2015 by the Paris design house Gilles & Boissier means it's a luxurious as ever, a lush an elegant refuge from the teeming streets beyond. Wide sweeping staircases, open courtyards, fine art and furnishing, and a rooftop swimming pool make it the perfect home base for our Mexico City adventure.
Mexico City may be the true city that never sleeps, but when you need to, head back to your home away from home to enjoy an evening swim under the glittering city lights, and maybe a nightcap of mezcal in one of the hotel's lively bars.
