About Your Trip

Climb Mayan temples, swim in crystal-clear cenotes and sink your toes into the white-sand beaches of Mexico’s Caribbean coast. This leisurely nine-day trip to the Yucatán Peninsula allows you to immerse yourself in Mexican culture. You’ll explore the world-famous Chichen Itza, as well as the lesser-known Mayan pyramids at Ek’ Balam, you'll sample Xocolatl, the Mayans’ answer to hot chocolate, and you'll feast on authentic Yucatecan dishes. Finish the trip in the beach town of Tulum, where you can party until dawn with your fellow travelers. All of our trips are flightless in destination, with 100% of all carbon emissions offset. It's just part of how we see the world while being good to it.

        Accommodation

        Beachscape Kin-Ha Villas

        Hit the beach as soon as you touch down at this Cancún hotel on the Caribbean Sea. Palm trees flank the outdoor pool, while the on-site gym is primed for early-morning gym bunnies. There’s also a spa for post-flight pampering. 

        Real Hispano

        With its porticoed walkways, exposed 17th Century stone walls and courtyard pools, this historic mansion-turned-boutique hotel is an oasis of colonial charm. Plus – you’re right in the heart of the Magic City, ideal for a photogenic sunrise stroll. 

        La Mision de Fray Diego

        This once-16th Century convent has a rich, colourful history – and its character seeps from every corner. From the tree-canopied courtyards, to the fountains and the vine-draped walls and balconies that overlook the pool, it’s pure Mexico magic.

        Hacienda Uxmal

        Within walking distance of the Uxmal ruins, this ex-plantation house is a delight. Think tiled bedroom floors, balconies overlooking immaculately manicured gardens, period furniture and plants sprouting from oversized clay pots. 

        Aloft Tulum

        Need we say more than “rooftop infinity pool overlooking nothing but ancient Mayan ruins and dense forest stretching to the Caribbean Sea”? We do? Ok, how about “room decor sharper than freshly-squeezed lime juice, and one of the funkiest lobby bars we’ve ever seen”?
