Trip Activity Level
Activity Rating: 3 out of 5
It's a balanced combination of movement and relaxation with opportunities to increase or decrease your exertion. We travel by comfortable bus for 2 to 7 hours on travel days. Hikes are under 2 miles on paved, gravel roads or uneven terrain. All hikes and activities are optional and include time for resting.
This trip gives you the chance to source with us while traveling consciously, provide service, explore rural cultures, and enjoy the vast beauty that Mexico has to offer. Together we will source coffee from one of our direct trade farming partners, volunteer to plant coffee trees, explore remote interiors of central Mexico and enjoy swimming holes and beaches as well.
We will be staying in old historic colonial villages and cities with some of the most beautiful views in the region. We will be lodging in hotels on this trip. No camping. Although we try to accommodate single rooms for singles and families, there may be some locations with limited room capacity where you will be grouped with a same sex roommate (in separate beds). However, you'll find every hotel to be comfortable and clean, and will absolutely love the culture and aesthetics that come with it.
On this trip we will cover a vast range of climates, and the high temperatures will range from 70 to 90, and the low from 60 to 70.
Considerations While Packing
It will be hot sometimes (so shorts are common), but lightweight, long pants are also useful for farm visits to protect you from mosquitos and brush.
A layered clothing system for warm/hot/sunny days and cooler/cold evenings and nights or for cool/cloudy days is most efficient.
Packing Check List
Travel Documents. Don’t forget your...
- Valid Passport
- Passport copy
- Airline Tickets
$200 to $400 is usually more than enough money for souvenirs, extra food, and drinks. ATM machines will be available throughout the trip.
Staying Connected. Combating FOMO...
While we recommend that to leave your device off or at home to enjoy the immersive experience that is being made available, we understand the need to stay connected with those back home. We suggest that you contact your cell phone carrier to set you up with a travel plan. This is usually $10 per day.
Mexico uses outlets of types A & B with a voltage between 110 and 127 (similar to US so an adaptor or converter are unnecessary).
While we do not anticipate injuries, it is best to be prepared. Check with your insurance provider to see if you are covered Internationally. If not, travel insurance is relatively cheap and can often be purchased through one of the large US insurance providers.
