Experience the city's ancient culture and unforgettable flavors
One departure only—Limited spots available
Mexico City, Xochimilco, Teotihuacán
Time seems to stop when you’re suspended in air at dawn, above 2,000-year-old monuments built for Aztec gods. As you gently float in a hot-air balloon, Teotihuacán pyramids sprawl out in full geometric glory, as the sunrise streaks the ancient stonework a dusty rose. Somewhere far away is bustling, enchanting Mexico City, with its endless clamor and jumble, its aromas of sizzling barbecued meats, charred corn, sharp salsas. But you’re not quite ready to return yet. You need to keep floating a little longer first, soaking in the quiet, the dawn, the gods.
If your idea of paradise is spending mornings sopping up cinnamon-tinged hot chocolate with freshly fried churros, afternoons sipping smoky mezcals and evenings cheering on masked luchadores, this trip is for you. We’ll travel alongside award-winning Chef Jonathan Zaragoza, float down ancient Aztec canals and tour vibrant neighborhoods. No matter how much you already know about Mexican culture and Mexican food, this journey will teach you, delight you—and leave you hungry for more.
Battery Travel isn’t just about going places — it’s about changing how you see the world.

In a city as exciting and busy as Mexico City, it’s important to feel at home. The Laredo apartments, in the tree-lined neighborhood of La Condesa, are a welcome oasis.
La Condesa, famed for its Art Deco mansions and fountain-lined parks, is one of the loveliest neighborhoods in Mexico City, a lush refuge from the teeming streets beyond. But (relatively) quiet doesn’t mean boring! With its distinctly international vibe, a hodgepodge of diplomats, hipsters, and young professionals, it’s the perfect place to feel like a local. Pop out for a late-night taco run, take in a morning espresso, or simply follow your nose as you wander the neighborhood’s stately streets and parks.
Mexico City may be the true city that never sleeps, but when you need to, head back to your home away from home to enjoy a sweeping view of the glittering city lights below, and maybe a nightcap of mezcal from the fully stocked kitchen. Rest up while you can—the city awaits!
