Unsettled Mexico City Highlights…

  • With over 160 museums, a thriving design and arts scene, and booming nightlife, it’s no wonder why last year Mexico City was named the #1 travel destination in the world by the New York Times. Expect temperate weather, gorgeous colonial buildings overlooking tree-lined streets, and the hospitality of super friendly locals (known as chilangos) ready to open up and show you the magic of CDMX.
  • Whether snacking on the best tacos de longaniza of your life at one of the city’s 60,000 street food stands, sampling the dozens of varieties of mezcal, or feasting on a tasting menu at one of the world’s top 50 restaurants, your inner foodie will surely thank you.
  • Some experience options: Temazcal (Mayan sweat lodge) ceremonies, family style cooking sessions, endless taco & street food crawls, mezcal tasting and mixology classes in craft bars, market visits, local produce tasting (from fruit to bugs), architectural history and photo walks, street art & neighborhood tours, Lucha Libre (Mexican wrestling), xochimilco canal rides, museum visits, day trips to San Miguel, day hikes, bike rides in urban parks, and much more…

Our Experience Philosophy


This is not traditional group travel. We don’t follow a flag or hop on a bus. We explore, we get lost, we live in the moment. Yes, there are some key experiences we host and a deeply thoughtful curation and calendar of events to explore. However, we believe that experiences are more powerful when we step into them and take ownership over what happens in the moment. We provide the platform. You choose your own adventure.


No two trips are ever the same. We engineer for serendipity, but we do not overthink it. We show up and find ways, in the moment and throughout the experience, to create secret meetups, popup adventures, or hidden ways to invite you along for the unexpected. We take risks when they show up and invite the opportunity to push ourselves. We’ll explore some of the city’s “unmissable” sights, sounds, and experiences, but be prepared to embrace the unknown. 


We don’t limit ourselves in the depth of our conversations nor the outcomes we can imagine for ourselves. We remove the expectations placed on us, and create a space where you can push your comfort zones, challenge your perspectives, and discover new ways of working, living, and being. When we live and travel unbounded, we are unconstrained by limits. It’s a mindset and an approach to everything we do.

… And Still Unsettled

Don’t worry. This isn’t a free-for-all. As with any Unsettled experience, we’re obsessed with quality over quantity, and craft each experience with the intention of inspiring a deeper sense of growth, meaning, and adventure in our lives. We tap into the creativity, cultural context, local philosophy & spirituality, and innovative elements of each destination as a way to bring greater perspective and learning to our work and professional lives.

"Inspiring" "Unforgettable"

An inspiring, unforgettable experience. I absolutely loved my time with Unsettled and still keep in touch with the amazing people I met there (with reunions in 6 countries so far!). 

-Colin Decker, Creative Director


It was an extraordinary experience, one that left me feeling affirmed, motivated and inspired. I’ve never experienced group travel in the way that Unsettled does it, and the co-curation of our time together made it so much more than just a trip.

-Shani Jamila, TED Speaker / Artist

"Life changing is an understatement"

-Rani El-Khatib, Managing Director of Dubai-based Creative Agency

"Break up the routine..."

If you’ve been wanting to break up the routine… give this experience a try. It just might prove to you that a totally new way to live is not just possible, but possibly right at your fingertips.

-Selena Welz, Senior Editor
