ago, the Yucatan Peninsula offers unsurpassed beauty, history and adventure.
Come explore its natural and ancient treasures on this ten-day lodging tour.
This journey of adventure and discovery begins with a visit to
Itza, one of the most excavated and best preserved of all archaeological
sites in Mexico. Climb El Castillo pyramid and gaze beyond the largest ball
court in Meso-America for a fantastic glimpse into the Mayan past.
Move on to the beautiful city of Merida, the capital of the Yucatan. From
our centrally located hotel, spend the day in the many shops, museums and
zocalos of this charming city, home to the descendants of the Mayan civilization
whose culture is now laced with Spanish influence.

homage to Chac, the Mayan rain god. Drive on to the part city of Campeche,
the only walled city in the New World., where, from our hotel deep in the
heart of the city, we can explore the remnants of its colourful past.
Continue down the ancient Mayan trade route to the ruins of Palenque, lost
in the jungle for hundreds of years. Marvel at the magnificent pyramid known
as the Temple of the Inscriptions and take a guided jungle tour to learn about
this unique ecosystem and its plant and animal life. After such an adventurous
day, relax and cool off in the inviting waters of Misol Ha waterfall.

built along the sea. Discover
