Mexico Ice Hockey Experience in Cuernavaca

31 October 2023 - 6 November 2023

$800.00 – $1,800.00

This is no trip to an all-inclusive resort – participants will experience a side of Mexico that few ever get to see. We will start the trip with a night of Lucha Libre (Mexican wrestling) in the capital, before heading to the Cuernavaca region to participate in local Day of the Dead festivities. Stops will include the ‘Magical Towns’ of Tepoztlan and Taxco, the Ruins of ‘Xochicalco’ and the “creepiest place on earth” – Isla de las Muñecas. The trip will end with a three day 3 on 3 ice hockey tournament in the scenic town of Cuernavaca.

 

If that’s not enough excitement for you, join us for our first-ever “surf-stension” in Puerto Escondido, Oaxaca – the home of Friendship League Manager Scott! While there, we will be visiting the Chacahua National Park, taking boat tours, learning to surf, tasting mezcal, searching for dolphins and much more!

Sport Highlights

  • Participate in a 3 on 3 ice hockey tournament hosted by local hockey enthusiasts

**Disclaimer – Our events are generally built around the availability of ice time in the host country.
