HIGHLIGHTS
  • Caribbean Caye Caulker is a dreamy place to spend two days with no plans. Munch barbecue lobster? Snorkel in coral reef? Nap under a palm tree? It’s up to you.
  • Hit the streets of Antigua with your leader and climb to a vintage cross lookout for views of the city and the massive volcano that towers over it.
  • Get to know contemporary Maya life during a homestay in San Jorge La Laguna, a lakeside village where you can share meals and conversation with a local family.
  • Wander between stalls of rainbowcoloured handicrafts, fruits and flowers and get some haggling tips from your leader in Chichicastenango Market.
The Maya Encounter tour starts in Playa del Carmen and ends in Antigua. The Maya Encounter tour is an explorer tour that takes 17 days. You will travel through Tikal, Tulum, San Jorge La Laguna and 6 other destinations visiting Belize, Peru and 3 more countries. This is a guided small group tour. The tour includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

Discover more than one kind of bliss on this 17-day adventure. From the relaxation that blows in on the sea breeze on the beaches of Tulum to the contentment in a hearty, homecooked dinner in a lakeside Maya village. This adventure through Mexico, Guatemala and Belize takes it sweet time ambling down the coast to the island paradise of Caye Caulker, then cutting inland to the lush jungle around Tikal, cruising to the wide river Rio Dulce and finishing among the clouds in Panajachel and Antigua.

“I wasn't forewarned about the difficulty of obtaining a Russian VISA in a short timeframe. Obtaining one in a short period of time cost over $1,000.
Additionally, I suggest booking directly with the tour company as communication was not passed from agent company, to tour company, to me the traveler that extra hotel fees were required as the hotel had sold out of single rooms.”

“It was such a beautiful experience. Very cold but so amazing!! The trek was a bit challenging at times especially with the extreme weather conditions but what can you expect it is patagonia. Camping out in tents was a fun experience. Overall a very good trip!”
