The Yucatan Peninsula is populated with the gentle, friendly descendants of a fascinating Mayan culture. On this exotic adventure you will explore jungle swimming holes, ruins, and idyllic stretches of coast, discovering remnants of ancient Mayan civilization and wonders of the natural world, and meeting modern Mayan descendants in their traditional farming villages. As well as some of the well-known ruins, such as Chichen-Itza and Tulum, you will visit lesser known but no less significant ones in the jungle and the Sian Ka’an Biosphere reserve. You will have opportunities to snorkel or dive on the world’s second longest barrier reef, and in incredibly clear inland rivers when they surface from their subterranean labyrinth. You will marvel at tropical wildlife, and will enjoy solitude and camaraderie beneath the palms on exotic white sand beaches stretching as far as the eye can see. You will bike along smooth jungle roads to tiny villages rarely visited by tourists, while absorbing the interesting history and relaxing culture of the Yucatan. This is a fun-filled, multi-faceted exploration, with sensually invigorating days and comfortable tropical nights.
Begin near Izamal – a colonial town whose monastery has been restored to its original splendor. You will then visit the ruins of Chichen-Itza and Coba, with long rides on jungle roads to tiny villages where children will surround you as you stop for refrescos. You will drink fresh-squeezed orange juice and swim in shady jungle grottoes where tiny fish nibble the salt off your skin, and the underwater view is so clear you can see your friend’s bikini from 100 feet away! Finish on the beach just south of Tulum, where bare feet are far more appropriate than shoes, and we challenge you to resist staying for longer! In Tulum, you will explore the ruins, bask and walk on the beach by sunlight and moonlight, and venture into the Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve to explore vestiges of Mayan civilization and their waterways through the jungle. On the last day, you can enjoy a relaxed morning on the beach, or a cenote swim if time allows, before your transfer to Playa del Carmen or Cancun.
