The Mayan & Aztec Explorer tour starts in Antigua and ends in Mexico City. The Mayan & Aztec Explorer is a safari tour that takes 28 days taking you from Antigua to Mexico City and through other destinations in North America.

This four week tour will give you an in-depth look at the
ancient Mayan civilisation, as well as colonial cities and local villages, and
some of the top eco and adventure destinations in Central America. We visit the
Mayan sites of Tikal, Tulum, Yaxchilán, Palenque, and we tick off one of the
New Seven Wonders of the World at Chichen Itza.We have time in San Ignacio to take part in the many
adventure activities on offer, such as mountain biking, caving and trekking,
and we also spend a few days on the paradise island of Caye Caulker off the
coast of Belize, where we can relax on the beach, go snorkelling and sea
kayaking, or take a flight over the famous Great Blue Hole.There's also a visit to Manos Amigas, which is an
organisation in the Chimaltenango region of Guatemala that supports women and
children who have been victims of violence.

“Tony was a great tour leader from Mexico City to Panama City. He is hilariously sarcastic, never failing to make me laugh. He is effortlessly organised and it was a pleasure having him as crew.”

Travel Insurance

Mayan & Aztec Explorer tour requires that you have adequate and valid travel insurance covering medical and personal accidents, including repatriation costs and emergency evacuation. We recommend using World Nomads' travel insurance.


For this Mayan & Aztec Explorer tour getting the required visa(s) is the responsibility for each individual traveller, as visa requirements vary depending on your nationality. We recommend to check with your local embassies representing the countries that you are travelling to, as part of this itinerary.

Local Payment The local payment is a group fund, paid separately from the trip price on the first day of the tour. It covers everything that the group does together on the ground. This is primarily hotel accommodation and campsite fees, meals whilst camping (but not while eating in restaurants), and included activities and puts money directly back to the local community. The local payment, or kitty system, is unique to overlanding tours and provides maximum flexibility and best value on the road - you can see exactly what is being paid for, you get everything at cost price, it keeps costs competitive by leveraging group expenses and saves on administrative costs. The fund is run by the tour guide, and any excess left over at the end is returned equally to the group. Local prices are estimated in USD when we print the brochure then reviewed monthly as local costs and exchange rates vary throughout the year. It's therefore important once you book your trip to check the website regularly and just before departure for any changes to the amount.
