  • Today you begin your journey by boarding your international outbound flight to Villahermosa. You will be met at the airport by your guide and driven to Palenque.

  • Your English speaking guide will take you on a private tour of Palenque. The situation of these ruins amid the jungle with wildlife clearly visible and audible make it arguably the most atmospheric Mayan site in Mexico.

  • Transfer back to the airport.

  • This morning you will take a private guided tour of the lively city of Merida.

  • Enjoy a guided tour to the archaeological sites of Uxmal and Kabah. These are quieter than some of the more famous sites in the area and the buildings, especially the pyramid of the magician, are spectacular.
