Like all Go Learn journeys, the adventure begins at home. We'll make sure you have all the information you need before you arrive in Mexico-we'll answer questions about what to pack, how to get around, and our daily itinerary. We want you to arrive in Mexico City ready to learn!
A trip reunion about a month after returning from Mexico will be the perfect conclusion to our journey. We will exchange pictures and stories while remembering the highlights of our tour. Go Learn expeditions are designed to be small, boutique experiences where one returns with a group of friends. Good food, drink, and company await us at this reunion.
This tour is as comprehensive as it is relaxing. Be prepared for historical, cultural, and culinary discoveries, as well as relaxing evenings and laid-back strolls through town.
The average daily temperature in January in Mexico City is 70 degrees Fahrenheit, with lows in the high 40’s. This is a perfect destination for those in cold climates looking for a little escape!
Activity levels and restrictions
In order to fully explore the sights on our itinerary, we will be walking every day. Most city walking is on paved surfaces but can be uneven. When visiting sites, we may be walking long distances or standing on our feet for prolonged times. Be sure to bring comfortable walking shoes. We often will start our days early and continue until sundown. Our exciting itinerary and daily learning adventures will keep you happily exhausted.
Mexico 2000 Years is considered Level Two out of three physical ability levels Go Learn journeys can reach. For more information regarding physical ability levels click
Go Learn Activity Levels
Traveling in a group is enriching and fun. It also requires consideration for everyone’s well-being and for reaching our daily goals in activities set by the itinerary. Before we head on our journey we like to ask our participants to consider the activity level each journey has and if it is something they feel able to do. The group’s interest in accomplishing our itinerary is the priority for trip leaders and we understand and respect this promise to all. Due to differences in country-specific laws and regulations, many sites visited are not handicap accessible. Go Learn staff can talk to participants in person for assessment and to answer questions.
At this level of a tour, trip participants will actively participate in up to three hours of activities. We may walk and stand for large portions of the lectures or excursions. Extensive breaks and adequate time to relax makes this our lowest activity level. Like all Go Learn journeys, active listening and participation is fundamental to learning and exploration.
Level 2 requires a good amount of stamina in walking and standing. In the course of a day one can expect to reach and exceed 5 miles of walking, multiple stairs, and prolonged periods of standing. We will take breaks and a certain standard of comfort will be maintained. The journey might have a hotel in one location, avoiding extensive travel, but public transportation and exploring on foot may be the main form of transportation. Happy exhaustion is part of this activity level.
Extensive excursions and challenging terrain will be encountered at this level. A day with a number of hours on foot is the norm. At this activity level, we may embark on hikes, physically strenuous site visits, and distances reaching and exceeding 10 miles per day. Go Learn will always incorporate breaks, sometimes a day off, but this level is as strenuous as it is fun.
