Yucatan Explorer Summary

Add to Shortlist

Day 1 Playa del Carmen

Acclimatise to the Mexican way of life in beautiful Playa del Carmen and let the aqua water, white sand and Caribbean sunshine wash away the jetlag. Take a ferry to Cozumel for a dive, or stay on solid, sandy land with a margarita in hand.

Days 2-3 Caye Caulker

Venture to the island of Caye Caulker and partake in an exciting snorkeling trip. Jump into the ocean and swim with the fishes... and sharks, turtles and rays of the area. For enthusiastic divers, take an optional excursion to the incredible Blue Hole or stay on dry land to meet the island’s celebrated Cake Lady and Tamale Seller. Afterwards, savor the amazing variety of seafood – be sure to try buttered lobster and a mojito or two. The locals are right, this is a place to relax and unwind.

Day 4 San Ignacio

Head to San Ignacio and choose to explore Xunantunich, an impressive Mayan ceremonial center or journey to Mountain Pine Ridge. For adventure seekers, hit the water and go on a tubing adventure into the heart of this natural beauty.

Day 5 Tikal

Towering above the jungle of Tikal National Park, the granite temples of Tikal are an awesome sight and one of the most magnificent Maya ruins. Explore a maze of smaller structures hidden in the jungle growth. If you’re feeling energetic, climb to the top of the ruins for spectacular views over the canopy. You may even spot toucans, macaws and other colorful birds.

Day 6 Flores

Enjoy an early morning meander around the Tikal ruins before driving to the quaint township of Flores. Be inspired by the enduring culture and traditions practised in this region. Stroll through the cobbled streets and if you’re game, jump in Lake Peten Itza for a swim.

Days 7-9 Antigua

Fly to Guatemala and head to Antigua. In the old colonial capital, walk along cobbled streets to find colorful markets and dance to indigenous marimba music. Visit a women's cooperative, which aims to assist community development, health, education, income generation and access to clean water for women in the area. See the ladies demonstrate their skills in traditional crafts, before enjoying some of their delicious cooking. At the end of this Mexico and Guatemala exploration, relax and cheers a cerveza to a fabulous trip.
