When you travel abroad the first you do is brush up on the local language to pick up the basics. A trip to Mexico booked through IBMT Tours will have travelers hear a familiar phrase all across the country, 'hola como estas?' It translates to hello, how are you when you meet the friendly local people of the country. Lots of fun awaits you when you make a date to travel to Mexico, the Mayan Riviera, beaches on the Pacific Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico, bullfights and traditional flamenco dancing are all part of the rich culture that is waiting for you when you take tours of Mexico. If you like history, Mexico has plenty of different sites to visit that date hundreds, if not thousands of years that can be seen and appreciated. While you are in Mexico, expect to put on some weight, because the cuisine is to die for and you will find yourself hungry all the time! Whether you are snacking on burritos or tacos during day trips or sit down to a full course meal, your appetite will be sated by the gastronomic delights that are at the heart of Mexican food.
When you heart this phrase in Mexico, it means to get up, get up, let's go, let's go to the many destinations that IBMT Tours will help you visit in the glorious country of Mexico. To kick-off your stay in Mexico, the first place you want to visit is the nation’s capital, Mexico City.
• The first thing to know about Mexico City sits at the highest altitude of any city in the country, nestled in the mountains. There are many places to visit like the historic centre of Mexico City – a huge plaza with lots of activity. If you want to see Mayan artifacts a trip to the Museo Nacional de Antropologia is in order. If art and culture are what will make your trip a lasting memory, a visit to Palacios de Bellas Artes is where the best of Mexican fine art is located. Mexico City is a world-class city that holds something for everybody, and every day you spend in the city will be a new adventure.
• When you visit Guadalajara you will see of the finest architecture that Mexico has to offer. Neo-Gothic architecture is on full display at the Templo Expiatorio del Santisimo, or a visit to 17th-century Catholic church and abbey at the Basilica of Our lady of Zapopan, or even a trip to the zoo at the Zoologico Guadalajara. Other attractions in ‘The Pearl of the Occident’ include Teatro Degollardo, the Palacio de Gobierno and the Cathedral. One stop that is sure to get your attention is the Tequila Village. Tequila is the national drink of the country and you can take a tour of a distillery to see the process and sample some of the finest Tequila made in Mexico.
• A visit to the Yucatan means that you will be staying in Cancun and it will be your jump off point for many different sites that reflect some of what Mexico has to offer the traveler and the education will be will illuminating. Merida is known as the ‘White City’ because the colonial buildings are all white in colour to reflect the period when they were built. Stops include Zolcalo, the Government Palace and Franciso Montejo’s House. Mayan history is one of the big draws when you take the time to see Ekbalam and Coba. Both sites hold enchanting visual displays of Mayan culture and in Coba, you can visit the tallest Mayan pyramids of Mexico, the ‘Nohoch Mul.’
• Traveling from Cancun, you will arrive at Bacalar and visit the famous Bacalar Lagoon. It is also known as the ‘Lagoon of Seven Colours.’ When the sun shines on the lagoon, it reflects several colours, predominantly turquoise and jade. A Mayan jungle surrounds the lagoon and the Bec River that envelope the Chicanna archeological site – the translation is the ‘House of the Serpent’s Mouth.’ The site – discovered in 1967 – is famous for the masks of animals that adorn the doors and is unforgettable. At the Structure II site, you can see a zoomorphic mask that depicts the God of the Sun, Itzamna.
A visit to Costa Rico with IBMT Tours will show you the best of both worlds – beaches, lush, green jungles that just exude natural beauty in this unspoiled country. Amazing tours to Costa Rica will have plenty of adventure and leisure activities for the traveler, tropical mammals that are indigenous to the country, birds of many a feather will greet you with a serenade – over 800 species of birds inhabit Costa Rica. The country was a frequent stop by explorers dating back to the 1500’s when Christopher Columbus first set foot on Costa Rican soil. Plenty of water sports are available for visitors of Costa Rica – fishing is one of the mainstays – whether fresh water, in one of many rivers in the country or deep sea fishing, you can do both. Scuba diving is a popular activity, as is white water rafting on the rivers of the country.

We recently returned from a IBMT Tour for our son’s Bar Mitzvah and we all agree that it was the best vacation that we have taken to date. The tour was well organized and the staff were friendly and very knowledgeable. The events that they include in the tour include everything “must see” in Israel and activities that will make you laugh, cry, and everything in between. The tour allows for activities for all ages and accommodates anyone who wants to do more or less than they have planned. It is ...
To Ornan and IBMT Tours staff,
We just got back from tour with IBMT for our Bat Mitzvah Tour in Israel.
We are so glad we have chosen the right company for our tour as I can’t express my words of how wonderful this tour company was, starting before we left, the personal service they showed here back home and later the service in Israel with our great tour guide Natalie who was so informative on every place we went and what we saw. It was so wonderful to listen to a ...
The visit to Israel was better than advertised. All of us had an awesome and inspiring vacation or as I call it, an education. Danny is one of the nicest and smartest men I have had the pleasure of meeting. He made the trip so special and I cannot imagine any other person showing us Israel but Danny.
Hotels were great but for Eilat, but no big deal. Food in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv restaurants were delicious. Sheila in Tel Aviv was extraordinary. Dinners at hotels just “so so”. Loved Mitzpe ...
Thank you very much for the IBMT Bat Mitzvah tour we just completed. We had a fabulous time & there were lots of special little parts from the tour that contributed to that. The different experiences for dinner were very special, and I liked the variety of different types of sites/attractions. Our tour guide Natalie was excellent, and I heard good things from the other group about their guide Liat.

Sara / Ornan,
I had a fabulous time on this tour and highly recommend it to anyone interested. We had an especially knowledgeable guide with us Doron Hoffman who as a history major added so much more information and had a great demeanor. I was part of an international group and made some new friends.
"Opting to celebrate our son's bar mitzvah this summer with IBMT is one of the best decisions we've ever made. The itinerary took us to places around the country that I've never experienced on previous trips to Israel. Experiencing our son's bar mitzvah atop Masada as opposed to a more rushed, crowded experience at the wall truly sets IBMT apart from other tour companies. The professionalism of the IBMT staff both in North America and Israel was superb...everything was incredibly well organized and we were heartened ...
