Our Mayan Adventure is a 9 Day Itinerary through the Yucatan Peninsula is perfect for travellers wanting to explore this magical part of Mexico in just over a week. Mayan ruins, historic city centres and Caribbean beaches make this customisable itinerary a fantastic option.
Starting with an early flight arrival into Cancun, your adventure starts with a bang as you visit Mexico’s most iconic ancient archaeological site – Chichen Itza. The ruins are a mix of Mayan and Toltec cultures and the city was first established in the early 5th century but wasn’t excavated until the mid 1800’s and today draws thousands of yearly visitors. After exploring the ruins, spend the night in nearby Merida in the historic city centre with winding alley ways and colonial architecture.
From Merida, continue overland south west for the next two nights in Campeche followed by a visit to the UNESCO listed Uxmal. Here the journey moves east again to Valladolid where you will visit a traditional hacienda considered a living museum as well as the Cenote Dzitnup – one of the many cenotes that dot the Yucatan. Finally, end your Mayan Adventure with three days on the white sand beaches of Tulum and explore the nearby Sian Ka’an Biosphere or Cozumel.
