What our specialists say...

This trip is ideal for a honeymoon or relaxing break as it includes beautiful beaches both at the beginning and the end of the itinerary. The Mayan Riviera has rightly earned its reputation as one of the best beach locations in Central America due its miles of powder white sand and sparkling turquoise water. You will also visit a lesser-visited beach destination, the laid-back island of Isla Holbox where you can cycle around the island or perhaps take a boat trip to snorkel, fish and eat fresh ceviche. In between the relaxation you will also get a slice of culture as you tour the towering Maya pyramids at Chichen Itza and explore the colonial streets of Merida.

We recommend this trip for:

  • Cancun
  • Isla Holbox
  • Merida
  • Chichén Itzá
  • Tulum
