Sunvil Latin America has added Mexico for the first time in its 2008 programme.

The operator recently launched its new brochure, its biggest to date, including soft adventure trips to 11 countries across Central and South America.

Sunvil director Lloyd Boutcher said he was delighted to include the country. “Mexico is the right place for our target market as it is possible to create soft adventure trips which take in wildlife and culture, staying in charming, family-run accommodation.”

The comprehensive Mexico programme includes less-visited colonial cities and archaeological sites, and includes Chiapas, Oaxaca, Campeche and Merida. “We focus on the real Mexico and don’t feature Cancun,” added Boutcher.

Prices lead in at £3,309 per person for the 16-night Essential Mexico tour, including flights and transfers. The operator is also including Panama in 2008.
