Take the kind of tropical holiday your kids will talk about for years on this 7-day Yucatan adventure that takes you from the sunny beaches to lush cenotes, lost ruins and bustling cities along the way. Discover the culture and history of the Maya at Chichen Itza and Tulum; take a dip in the turquoise waters of a cenote at Yaxunah; try your hand at tortilla-making with a Maya family and watch the flamingos paint the sky pink at the Celestun Bird Sanctuary. There’s so much more to Mexico than beaches and palm trees, and this family-friendly trip gets you to all of it.

Why you'll love this trip
  • Revel in the beach vibes of Playa del Carmen.
  • Explore ancient Maya ruins and pyramids at Tulum and Chichen Itza.
  • Discover the charm of Merida’s leafy plazas, captivating museums and vibrant city streets.
  • Meet local Maya families and learn how to make your own tortillas and dine of a pibil feast baked underground.
  • Swim in the crystal-clear fresh waters of cavernous cenotes that some say were formed by the same asteroid that wiped out the dinosaurs.

Is this trip right for you?
  • Mexico's tropical climate can get really hot and humid. Wear loose clothing and always carry plenty of water with you and stay hydrated, especially on walking tours.
  • Try to learn as many Spanish words as you can. Locals are very friendly, but also shy, so you'll need to make plenty of effort to break the ice. Attempting to communicate in Spanish is a great way of showing you care.

Great trip for the whole family! Highly recommend it... it's Mexico made easy... and enjoyable, interesting, and memorable. Our guide was the second to none and everything went so smoothly which I can guarantee would not have been the case if we hadn't been with Intrepid!
