Tropical Trek - 14 Days
Can't decide which of our week-long Mayan adventure bus tours is for you? Combine them for the ultimate Central American trek! Spend two weeks exploring the best of the Yucatan peninsula, including Mayan ruins, cascading waterfalls, white-sand Caribbean beaches and starry nights!
We begin our adventure with a visit to the jungle ruins of Coba, site of Nohoch Mul, the Yucatan's tallest pyramid. Camping out in Rio Lagartos, the next morning, visit the regional Biosphere Reserve, home to 30,000 pink flamingos, the largest population in the world!
In Merida, shop for the world's best hammocks and enjoy a little nightlife before we make our way to Uxmal. Tour the Pyramid of the Magician and, naturally, the House of the Turtles.
Marvel at the wisdom of the ancients at the ruins of Chichen-Itza on the equinox. Witness the winged serpent make its descent along the side of El Castillo. Also know as the pyramid of Kukulkan, the pyramid is a three dimensional representation of the Mayan Calendar with 365 steps and nine terraces. Tonight we'll camp under the stars in a Yucatan meadow.
Wake to a refreshing dip in the subterranean waters of cenote Dzitnup. We'll have lunch in the zocalo of the colonial city of Valladolid before heading to Tulum.
What better way to wake than sunrise over the Caribbean? Home to fascinating coastal ruins perched atop limestone cliffs, enter this ancient fortress to visit the House of Frescoes and the Temple of the Descending God. You'll have two full days to explore and relax on the beach. Hang your hammock under a shady palm or kick back on the beach with a margarita.
After breakfast we'll stop at Cenote Azul for a freshwater dip. That afternoon, visit the wooded ruins of Kohunlich, renowned for the giant faces of sun god Kinich Ahau on the Temple of the Masks.
At Palenque, wake to the sunrise and the hooting of howler monkeys in the nearby treetops. Then head into the ruins to explore the Temple of the Inscriptions, and browse the work of local Mayan artisans on the steps of these ancient pyramids. We'll camp for two nights at the hip jungle resort of Mayabell.
We'll have a full day to play and explore the glittering blue cascades of Agua Azul in Chiapas. Hire a local guide and journey downriver to see seven giant horseshoe falls, or explore the hundreds of smaller falls near our campsite. Tonight, fall asleep to the water's lullaby yards from the door of your tent.
The waterfall at Misol Ha plunges over 100 feet into a giant jungle pool. Ask the local kids to show you the hidden cave behind the waterfall.
After a cool plunge into the depths of Cenote Aktun Ha, we'll arrive in Cancun in time for a farewell dinner and party.
