HIGHLIGHTS Download trip notes
  • Discover the lost Maya city of Chichen Itza, one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. Your tour of the ancient ruins includes a special visit and traditional lunch to the nearby Piste community.
  • Sip margaritas and try local specialties in Merida: Yucatan’s charming colonial capital. There’s so much culture to this city, and always a place to practise your salsa!
  • Explore the hidden treasures of Calakmul, a Maya site which has stayed largely hidden by the secondlargest expanse of tropical forests in the Americas.
  • Dip your toe in the fresh waters surrounding Tulum – a laidback beachside community close to deep blue cenotes and expansive lagoons.
The Yucatan Peninsula Adventure tour starts in Playa Del Carmen and ends in Tulum. It is an explorer trip that takes 8 days taking you through Calakmul, Merida and Tulum in Mexico. Yucatan Peninsula Adventure is a guided small group tour that includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

Adventure across the Yucatan Peninsula from the tropical beaches to the dense jungles. Lose yourself among ancient Maya ruins of Chichen Itza and Calakmul, and head to the bustling street markets before finding yourself in clear waters and turquoise lagoons of the coast. Learn about the Maya culture in colonial Merida, experience a local homestay near Calakmul, and then take the plunge in Bacalar: a laidback lake town famous for its ever-changing shades of blue water. Thousands of years of history mixed with a modern, laidback lifestyle means Mexico, and the Yucatan in particular, should be high on everyone’s bucket list.

“The trip was well planned and we saw the most amazing nature in Montenegro and Bosnia-i-Herzegovina. We had a night in Pluzine near lake piva where the accomodation could have been better. The guide and driver/mechanic were a great team and both of them did an excellent job”

Is this trip right for you:
  • Some included activities, such as guided tours of archaeological sites, can be quite strenuous. Be sure to bring suitably sturdy footwear.
  • The tropical climate of Central America means conditions can be hot and humid. Always carry plenty of water with you and stay hydrated, especially on walking tours. There will of course be plenty of chances to swim!
  • It's a good idea to learn as many Spanish words as you can. Locals are very friendly, but can be shy, so you'll need to make an effort to break the ice. It's a great way to show respect and involve yourself in their culture.
  • The homestay in Calakmul is a wonderful opportunity to witness every day rural life and includes a home-cooked dinner. Facilities are simple and multi-share but comfortable, with mattresses and bedding provided. Some travellers are nervous about the homestay experience before they arrive, but we find most end up naming this as a highlight of their time in Mexico and a rewarding, authentic experience.
