Itinerary

Day 1-2, Cancun and Merida

We hit the road running in Cancun and cruise through the Yucatan to the spectacular Chichen Itza ruins. Famous for their well-preserved condition, you will explore the living history of the Mayans and imagine how their legacy has lasted throughout the centuries. After exploring this amazing archeological site, we carry on to Merida, capital of the Yucatan for two exciting evenings. The city is full of historic architecture, local markets and surprisingly good restaurants. It's a great place to explore or chill out and absorb the atmosphere, as well as to purchase the famously comfortable Mexican hammocks! Accommodation: Hotel included. Meals paid locally.

Day 3-4, Palenque

Leaving the city and its modern conveniences behind, we head for the wild side. Hiking around the lost city of Uxmal is a feast for the senses as the jungle hums with life. Then, we carry on to mystical Palenque. Palenque is home to some of the most spectacular ruins in Mexico and they are set in the heart of the steamy jungle. Be ready with your camera as there are numerous howler monkeys and tropical birds in the trees, not to mention hidden waterfalls and natural swimming pools. Accommodation: Hotel included. Meals paid locally.

Day 5-7, San Cristobal de las Casas

From the jungles to the mountains, we continue the journey to San Cristobal de Las Casas, the heart of the state of Chiapas. With fascinating Indian markets and cobblestone streets to wander, you will be sure to fall in love with this colonial mountain town. After exploring the city try one of the great restaurants - each having their own special flair. Accommodation: Hotel included. Meals paid locally.

Day 8, Chiapas

Driving back down to the lower plains, we visit the rambling waterfalls of Agua Azul, or Blue Water. Stunning blue-green waterfalls form perfect natural pools where you can kick back and just relax in the sun. Then, nature never ceases to impress as Misol Ha Waterfall cascades some 35 metres down into a jungle lagoon, forming the perfect place for a refreshing swim. Accommodation: Hotel included. Meals paid locally.

Day 9, Bacalar

From the jungle of Chiapas, we travel across the vast Yucatan peninsula to the crystal clear 'Lagoon of Seven Colours' at Bacalar and the famous Cenote Azul.
