Beyond the beautiful beaches and tasty tequila, Mexico is home to an abundance of culture and rail sites to excite historians and rail fans alike.

There is more to Mexico than just white sands and clear Caribbean waters. From the poignant pre-Hispanic artefacts of the Aztec and Mayan civilizations to the colonial architecture and dramatic landscapes of the temperate zone, there is much to explore in Mexico. The World Heritage sites of Chichen Itza and Teotihuacan immerse visitors in pre-Columbian civilization and a horse-drawn car to a hacienda offers a new way to experience a railway journey.

PTG Tours takes you on a two-day journey on the spectacular Copper Canyon Railway to see some of the best views of the country’s mountain scenery. Plus, there will be plenty of opportunities to sample Mexican tequila on the Jose Cuervo Express train. No trip to Mexico would be complete without at least dipping your toes into the warm sand at one of the iconic coastal resorts, so the journey ends in Playa del Carmen.
