1 month itinerary US/Mexico

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone, I'm posting this in the Central America and US forum and would love your opinion on this itinerary for the mexico experts out there


we are in our late 20s, married and wanting to do a last big trip before having kids, seeing places where we probably wouldn't return with kids.

this is the plan so far, I know its fast but please advise if you think its too fast and we will still get to experience the culture /food/ history of mexico.

Fly from Perth AUS to LA then connect straight away to Las Vegas, leaving 5th of November.
5 nights in Vegas to recover from Jet Lag 30th Birthday celebration on last night in Vegas.

DIrect flight with Volaris Vegas to MExico City. 5 night mexico city.

direct flight MC to Tuxtla Gutierez near SAn Cristobal de la CAssis in CHiapas. spend 6 nights in the area seeing the sights including Palenque. Night bus to Merida (does anyone know how much this might cost the website said $500 but do them mean Pesos??)

2 nights in Merida, hire car make our way to the CAribbean coast with CHichen Iza on the wal for half the day.4 nights playa del CArmen or Tulum area for some relaxing. can we pick a car up in Merida and drop off in CAncun? is driving in this area attrocious?


direct flight from CAncun to NYC- 6 nights there, leave on 4th of dECEMBER after the lighting of the tree in Rockefeller centre :-), 3 nights in HOng Kong on the way home (flying CAthay PAcific)

the travel costs will come to about $2400 per person excluding car hire and overnight bus

we have been to Europe doing 2-3 nights in each place then moving on by train so the fact we ae doing 4-6 nights in each spot I think is better but would love your opinon on what to cut back on and where to increase time in. thank you
