Itinerary

 

 

Day 1: Arrive Merida
Welcome to Mexico! Upon arrival in Merida we are met by our Adventures Mexico Tour Director and then transferred to our hotel.

 

Day 2: Cuzama Cenotes
We visit two marvelous Cenotes located in the small village of Cuzama. The cenotes are sinkholes where underground rivers break through the limestone crust of the earth. For Mayas, they represent the doorway to the spiritual underworld. We'll get on horse-drawn trucks which take us 6 miles into the jungle to visit and swim in the beautiful, clear cenotes. We return to Merida in the afternoon.

 

Day 3: Celestun National Park / Merida
Celestun is home of the biggest settlement of the Pink Flamingo in the continent. To visit them, we take a boat tour and will learn about the importance of mangroves in the region. In the afternoon we will have a walking tour of El Centro of Merida to visit the Cathedral, the Casa de Montejo and the beautiful Plaza Grande. At night we watch the traditional dance of the Yucatan, the Jarana, at the spectacle La Vaqueria.

 

Day 4: Uxmal / Calcehtok Caves
We leave very early to go to the Mayan archaeological site of Uxmal, the three times built city. At Uxmal we will visit the 115 feet high Pyramid of the Magician and the impressive Governor's house, a wonder of the ancient world for its precision and architectonic beauty. Then we will head off to the marvelous caves of Calcehtok, the largest cave system of the Yucatan. We return to the hotel in the afternoon.

 

Day 5: Tixcocob Mayan Town / Coba
We will head off to the little town of Tixcocob. We'll learn about the art of making hammocks and will experience Mayan living first hand. After that, we head off to Coba which is among the largest of Mayan sites and offers the chance to explore unrestored antiquities set deep in tropical jungle. We'll overnight in Playa del Carmen.

 

Day 6: Tulum / Xel-ha
Today is our Caribbean experience at Tulum and Xel-Ha. Many buildings can be explored at Tulum as well as the beauty of the rugged coast. Then, we will spend the whole day in the fantastic water theme park of Xel-Ha . We leave the park in the afternoon and will spend the night at Valladolid.

 

Day 7: Chichen Itza
We continue our journey with a visit to the famous site of Chichen Itza. It's a big place and we'll walk a lot. This important center combines majesty and nature. A step-on guide will explain the splendid Castle, an imposing example of the immense depth of the Mayas' knowledge of the cosmos, math, and science. We will visit the biggest ball game court of the Mayan world. We'll have enough time to buy some handcrafts. If time allows, we will swim in the beautiful Ik Kil cenote. We return to Merida in the afternoon. At night, we have our farewell dinner at a Mexican restaurant.

We return home very early in the morning. Adios MEXICO!
