Day 1 Palenque

Villahermosa , Palenque

You will be met at the airport by your guide and driven to Palenque.

Day 2 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.

Day 3 Merida

Day 4 Merida


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

Day 5 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.

Day 6 Chichén Itzá

Merida , Chichén Itzá

Transfer to Chichen Itza.

Day 7 Tulum

Chichén Itzá , Tulum

Voted one of the 7 New Wonders of the World in 2007, Chichen Itza doesn't disappoint. Your guide will be at your hotel early so that you can avoid the crowds and make the most of this incredible archaeological site. Transfer on to Tulum after.

Day 8 Tulum


Most people just want to relax and enjoy the beach, but you might want to tour the Mayan ruins of Tulum or swim in one of the freshwater Cenotes that dot the area.

Day 11 Return home


Transfer to the airport in Cancun.
