Medicines of Mexico

Mexico, once home to the Mayan, Aztex and Olmec civilizations, retains pieces of the country’s past in the continuing practice of traditional healing methods. From the Curanderos healers praising the properties of herbs and plants, to the Brujos sorcerers offering spells to dispel ailments, Mexico offers diverse remedies.

During this trip, we will visit places and people that offer these varied treatments whilst exploring some of the most awe-inspiring sights in Mexico. From urban Mexico City to the coastline of Cancun, we will discover majestic pyramids, picturesque national parks and explore Mexican culture on a journey of a lifetime.
