Puebla Trip Itinerary

Puebla is a bit unknown to many Mexico travelers–but it is not to be missed. The foods are unique and delicious, the history is amazing, and the “touristy” level is near zero.

We go often to Puebla and we can get you info on our next trip very soon. Call Dave at 217.369.9897 or email davehensleigh@gmail.com if you are interested or want info.

Here is the itineray for a typical Puebla trip:

Authentic Puebla Trip

From Dave Hensleigh

Authentic Mexico Travel


My team and I built the premier culturally rich small group trips to Copper Canyon, Chihuahua,  and now we are bringing the same approach to the lovely state of Puebla. Come along with us to experience the unique foods, the intricate arts, the indigenous customs and the verdant landscapes of Puebla. My local team and I have spent extensive time on the ground in Puebla and we have designed a journey with a wide variety of cultural experiences. There are many options for this trip, including arriving early or late to experience more of Mexico City or Puebla City. You can also tag a trip to Oaxaca onto the end of this one.

 Note: the dates below are just a sample–this trip can work on any dates beginning on Sunday. There are options to arrive a few days early —or to stay over longer in Mexico City.

Sun Dec 1—arrive and to Embassy Suites near the central plaza for evening. Your guide will meet you at the Mexico City airport (MEX) and give you a quick tour of the centro area before dinner.

Mon Dec 2 –Morning in Mexico City and travel to PueblaCity for the evening. Quick walk in the center plaza area and relax over dinner. (D)

Tues Dec 3 – We have all day to explore this enchanting urban area. The vast art market, the central cathedral and historic buildings , and even time to see the ruins at nearby Cholula. (B)

Wed Dec 4- Breakfast then we head north east and drop into the intriguing ruins at Cantona. Then to the little village of Tlatlauquitepec and to our mountainside lodge for the evening. Dinner of barbeque at one of the best places in town. (B,L,D)

Th Dec 5 -Tlatlau is a “Magic Town” and is at its best on market day – and that is today. Stroll and shop as long as you want, or enjoy a drink on the quiet plaza, or perhaps a hike or horse ride for those who are interested. We head off in the afternoon for another magic place Jonatla—off the grid and wonderful. (D)

Fri Dec 6 – Take a last walk around this village then off through the jungle toward another “Magic Town” (the first in Mexico), Cuetzalan. You can walk or you can ride. Along the way we visit a coffee plantation. We stay near the restored plaza. (B,L)

Sat Dec 7 – We have so many options today. There are indigenous villages close by. Also the quiet ruins at Yohualichan, hikes to waterfalls, botanical preserves and butterfly gardens. There are two ancient church buildings, and of course you must explore the winding almost European cobblestone streets that make Cuetzalan so special. (D)

Sun Dec 8 – There is time to relax over breakfast this morning, and in the plaza in front of the main church the flying “voladores” will be seen at noon. Then we are off toward Mexico City for an evening in the city center. There are eateries, parks, historical buildings, and shopping. (B, D)

Mon Dec 9 – We catch our flights today…or you can extend as many days in Mexico City as you wish.
