Itinerary

Days 1-2 Antigua

Take to the colourful streets to admire the well-maintained colonial buildings set against a backdrop of volcanoes.

Days 3-4 Flores/Tikal

Explore Flores' cobblestone lanes, pastel-coloured buildings and quaint shops, then wake early to visit the impressive Tikal ruins. Soaring above the jungle, the enormous limestone temples are an awesome sight and one of the most magnificent of all the Mayan sites.

Days 5-6 San Ignacio

Cross the border into easygoing Belize. Enjoy the range of optional activities on offer in San Ignacio, from tubing down the river to exploring the eerie Actun Tunichil Muknal cave, full of Mayan relics and crystallised skeletons.

Days 7-9 Caye Caulker

Relax on the idyllic shores of Caye Caulker, a relaxed island with a distinctly Caribbean feel. Soak up the sun, swim in the warm waters or take an optional visit to Hol Chan Marine Reserve to dive among sharks. Enjoy feasting on some of Belize's legendary fresh-caught seafood at one of the island's many beachside restaurants.

Day 10 Tulum

Cross the border into Mexico and head up the coast to tranquil Tulum. Laze on the powdery shoreline or explore the famous ruins, which occupy one of the region's most breathtaking locations - a cliff top overlooking a palm-fringed beach.

Days 11-13 Playa del Carmen

This beach town offers a final chance to have some fun in the sun. Snorkel among the mangroves, swim in pristine blue water, stroll along the white sands or feast on a final fresh seafood meal and bid farewell to the colours of Central America.
