Experience history, culture, the arts, and Spanish language learning on our 8-day/7-night immersion trip to Mexico City. This trip is designed for students at the Basic III level, with all activities conducted in both English and Spanish. Your program directors, Chiva and Paulina, will be available to provide translations and language corrections when necessary. In addition to bilingual activities, we will have 10 hours of structured classroom time throughout the duration of the 8-day trip.
CDMX, unlike most big cities in Latin America, is not just a place for a layover, it's a destination in its own right. Having experienced quite the renaissance, CDMX has ditched its reputation of being dingy and dangerous and is quickly becoming a major destination known for its culture, art, and gastronomy. With an approximate population of 21.3 million people, Mexico City is a bustling metropolis that balances a rich history and tradition with modern innovation and world-class amenities.
From a stroll through the charming La Condesa neighborhood, to ride downtown on the overloaded metro there is something for everyone in Mexico City. Plus, you'll truly be hard-pressed to find a city that beats CDMX when it comes to food, art, and museums.
With so much to see, do, eat and drink in Mexico City a week is enough time to just get your toes wet in exploring this incredible city. We will start our adventure by getting settled into a quaint boutique hotel which will serve as our home base for 7 nights and is the perfect place to come back to after a long day exploring the city or a night of salsa ;)
During our time together we will immerse ourselves in history, culture, and everyday life in Mexico City through a diverse array of activities. A few of the major highlights of this trip are our visits to many of CDMX's art and history museums, a night at the famous folkloric ballet, a morning boat ride down the river in Xochimilco with mariachis and marimbas aboard, stuffing our faces on unique Mexican fare at Mercado Jamaica, drinking tequila in Plaza Garibaldi and staring out across the city from the top of the Teotihuacán pyramids!
