Field trips & activities

Cliff jumping at Tamul RiverAn integral part of the WIM curriculum involves several organized field trips to explore the rich diversity of Mexico. For example, you will travel to the megalopolis of Mexico City and to rural indigenous villages; you'll walk along cobblestoned, colonial streets and wade through rivers and streams; you'll climb mountains and monuments and walk under arches and waterfalls. One of your profesors, along with the Westmont faculty resident director, will be your guides. Destinations may include:

  • Bernal Peak, one of the world's largest monoliths
  • The Sierra Gorda, where Father Serra began his magnificent missions
  • Mexico City and the pyramids of Teotihaucan
  • Oaxaca, including the ruins of Mitla and Monte Albán
  • Michoacán
