Feast your senses on Atlixco, affectionately known as the City of Flowers, on an 8-hour day trip from Puebla. Located at the foot of the majestic Popocatépetl volcano — Mexico’s second highest — Atlixco is replete with ornamental flowers, fruit trees, and colonial architecture. Visit highlights including Plaza Atlixco, browse the bustling food market, and stop at a 16th-century monastery. Hotel pickup and drop-off in Puebla are included.
Your day-trip begins with pickup from your Puebla accommodation at 10am, when you’ll board an air-conditioned vehicle destined for Atlixco, known affectionately as the City of Flowers.
Following a 30-minute drive, you’ll arrive in the enchanting town and immediately start admiring manicured flowerbeds and fruit trees within a greenhouse. See, too, the colorful wall painting of Plaza Atlixco and browse stalls selling local produce at a food market.
Then, proceed to a 16th-century monastery that boasts panoramic views of Atlixco before returning to your hotel in Puebla in the late afternoon.
