Description

What if you could rewind your watch two or three hundred years? It is hard to believe that just a short drive from Mexico City, the pace of life can be so different. Our Tlaxcala Hacienda tour will take you to the smallest state of Mexico, home to some of the country's most exquisite historical haciendas, where you will visit its capital, a small and peaceful town of some 15,000 souls.

Detailed Itinerary

For those of you in need of a break form Mexico City's madness, our Tlaxcala Hacienda Tour is a refreshing two day getaway that will have you discover the marvels of Tlaxcala, Mexico's smallest state, where life seems to have been suspended in time. During the course of your 36 hour escape, we will have you tour the state's famous haciendas where Pulque (a local drink), cotton and other crops were once harvested and sold across the country. You will visit the state's capital Tlaxcala, a peaceful town with beautiful colonial architecture and an animated town square. You will spend the night in a stunningly beautiful Hacienda now converted into a luxurious hotel. By the time you return to Mexico City, you will have had a sneak preview of Mexico's gentle, tranquil provincial way of life. A getaway for those of you who enjoy nature, culture and lots of fresh air!

A word about the city of Tlaxcala: Founded in 1522 by the Spanish, Tlaxcala was intended to be the regional center of governance and evangelization. The second largest diocese in Mexico, Tlaxcala's population grew to about 300,000 at its peak before an outbreak of smallpox wiped out a large part of its population. As a result, neighboring Puebla took over as the regional powerhouse. Today, Tlaxcala is a peaceful colonial town with beautiful colonial architecture and the capital of a state that deserves to be discovered.
