Project Mexico / USA 2024 Total Solar Eclipse Itineraries
The total solar eclipse in April 2024 offers a wide range of interesting travel options to enhance the delight of this long eclipse. The event can be seen across a large part of Mexico and the USA and just into Canada, with the longest duration and more promising weather prospects in central Mexico.
We will have our main observation site near Torreon in the central plain of Mexico, with a range of varied and interesting tours including the best of Mexico’s colonial cities and the ancient sites in the Yucatan region, accompanied by some stunning beachside options.
The US north east has some interesting possibilities with photo opportunities from Niagara Falls. For first time visitors to that region there is a combination of Toronto, a trip alongside Lake Ontario to the Falls and a rail journey through New York State with a few days in New York City on Manhattan Island. That trip can also be extended with a grand coast to coast rail tour including some of the country’s major cities.
For the time conscious we also have a short 'in and out' itinerary based around San Antonio Texas. This can be extended to include the amazing southwestern sights, including the Very Large Array (VLA), Meteor Crater, Lowell and Kitt Peak Observatories and the Grand Canyon.
Observing a total solar eclipse is of course the rare event that is central to this project, but there is much more to see. This is not an everyday adventure...
