OUR TRAVEL STYLE

Each Salt & Wind trip is highly researched and curated with Team Salt & Wind hand-picking each excursion and travel partner. We want to show you all that we love about a place and introduce you to our local friends so you get an insider's view into the region. Here's a few reasons people love traveling with us: 

  • Unique Experiences: Most of the experiences in our itineraries are one-of-a-kind and only accessible with Salt & Wind
  • Photographer: Each trip has a group photographer providing attendees with 10+ images daily so you can concentrate on the trip and not on your camera.
  • Concierge: There is a concierge on hand to help you with anything from extra activities to health issues 24/7
  • Expert Hosts: Team Salt & Wind has deep knowledge about each area we travel and partners with local experts.
  • Planned Itinerary: Our itineraries are planned so that each day has anywhere from 4 to 8 hours of activity. 
  • Free Time: That said we always offer some optional activities if you want to do even more and we always squeeze in some downtime so you can relax.  

SALT & WIND x BORDER FREE TRAVEL MEXICO CITY TRIPS 

Why Mexico City?

Mexico City is a magical place where tradition is vibrantly woven into modern life. A contrast of old and new, hectic urban streets and quiet green spaces, refined and rustic, Mexico City needs to be experienced with all five senses.

There is always something new to discover in Mexico City with creatives launching new products, new nightlife, and locals who are beyond welcoming. Much like New York City, every neighborhood in Mexico City has a distinct identity but each one is decidedly Mexican. All that's to say that in just a few days time, you can have an unforgettable travel experience in Mexico City. 

Trip Overview

On each food-focused trip, a small group of us will head on a 4-night, 5-day to Mexico City. As the birthplace of Mexican culture, Mexico City needs no introduction. But getting to really know it? Well, when a city has a population on par with the country of Greece, it can be a little overwhelming. So let us help!

Join our long weekender in Mexico City filled with a craft cocktail tour, a food and art experience, a hands-on cooking class, a boutique shopping crawl with treats to lead the way, and a surprise (or two)! 

While other cities can be fully experienced in just a few days time, this long weekend is really more like an intro to Mexico's capital. And we're sure that after you join our trip, you'll want to return to Mexico City again and again.  

Each itinerary includes expert-led food tours, art gallery visits, pop-up parties, seaside meals, market visits, wine tastings, boutique accommodations, a concierge, a group photographer, and morning yoga! Want some visuals? Check our Instagram and Salt & Wind coverage from prior trips.

Room Options

Double Occupancy

Double occupancy pricing is the price for (1) person to stay in a shared (i.e. double) room. In other words, each person staying in that room will pay the posted double occupancy rate. If you're a couple or friends traveling together, please know that you'll each pay the double occupancy rate. 

Single Occupancy

Need some alone time? We hear you. That's why we offer single occupancy rooms. The single occupancy rate is what you will pay to have the room all to yourself. 

Roommates

If you do not have a travel partner, you can purchase single occupancy room and have it all to yourself! We do not pair up trip attendees because we find there is not enough privacy in the rooms to allow strangers to room together.
