ITINERARY

Arrive at Tuxtla Gutierrez airport and head towards the Sumidero Canyon, one of Mexico’s outstanding natural attractions. This spectacular gorge carved into the earth over millions of years by the River Grijalva has to be one of Mother Nature’s least celebrated masterpieces. This makes visiting it even more exciting.

During a two-hour boat tour along the imposing canyon bed, you will be able to appreciate just how deep this ravine gorge is. Find yourself dwarfed by the sheer scale of its high walls, covered in thick vegetation. Admire the beautiful wildlife, such as crocodiles, monkeys, and birds and the great variety of flora of the surrounding rain forest. After the boat ride, we continue to San Cristobal de las Casas with drop-off at your hotel.

Overnight in San Cristobal de las Casas.

Today starts with breakfast, followed by a visit to the indigenous villages San Juan Chamula and Zinacantan, which is famed for its whitewashed cathedral with colorful ornamentation and pine-scented, candlelit interior. Observe the rare religious rituals that the locals perform. The towns are almost entirely inhabited by Tzotzil Maya, who apart from speaking their own language also wear distinctive clothing, with the men wearing tunics called chujes and the women favoring blouses known as huipils.

Chamula is famous for the quality of its weavers, local shops and, markets, which offer a great variety. Keep in mind that in San Juan Chamula and Zinacantán, photographs or video are prohibited within the temples, or during processions and rituals. In Zinacantan, we visit a family co-operative where we are offered a regional drink and can observe the loom waist weaving technique, which dates back to pre-Columbian times.

Then sample a tasty traditional hand-made tortilla. Afterwards, we return to San Cristobal de las Casas, where we go on a sightseeing tour of the town’s most important monuments to appreciate the colonial architectural beauty and the town’s colorful atmosphere.

Overnight in San Cristobal de las Casas.

After a delicious breakfast, depart from the hotel heading northeast to see the beautiful waterfalls in Chiapas. Admire some of the most stunning cascades on earth and take a dip in one of the many natural pools full of bright blue water. This natural area is sure to impress. Afterwards, we continue the journey to the city of Palenque for check-in at your designated hotel.

Overnight Palenque.

After breakfast, the temples of Palenque are waiting for you. This archaeological site boasts some of the finest Mayan architecture, sculpture, roof comb and bas-relief carvings produced. Enjoy a guided tour of the premises to find out interesting and useful information. In the impressive Temple of Inscriptions, which reaches almost 23 meters high, the tomb of the Maya ruler was found and excavated in the early 1950s. Palenque was a sprawling city-state that spanned nearly 60 square kilometers but archaeologists estimate that they have excavated only 5-10% of this UNESCO World Heritage Site. So far, more than 200 structures have been unearthed, with the Temple of the Inscriptions, the Palace, the Temple of the Count and the Temple of the Cross, the most prominent. Afterwards, continue to Campeche for a panoramic tour of this historic coastal city, driving through the heart of the picturesque old town, with its pastel-colored colonial houses, collonaded arcades, and bell-gabled churches. Continue exploring the surroundings by foot, seeing sights such as ramparts of the old city walls and St Francis’ Cathedral.

Overnight in Campeche.

Today, after breakfast at the hotel, we visit the impressive archaeological site of Uxmal and enjoy a guided tour of this UNESCO World Heritage Site, which rises above the canopy of the jungle. Unlike other Mayan cities, Uxmal was devoured by the rain forest after the Spaniards had arrived. The most famous structure is the 35-meter-tall Pyramid of the Magician, which towers over the remarkably well-preserved Nunnery Quadrangle with its ornately carved interior and exterior walls.

Across the central plaza, just beyond the ballgame court, is the Governor’s Palace with its elaborately decorated roof. At the southern end of the main complex is the Great Pyramid, of which only one side has been excavated with the other three still unclaimed from the bush. Then, we head to the beautiful colonial white city of Merida where we go on a panoramic tour along Merida's highlights and see the Government Palace, City Hall, the Cathedral, Casa de Montejo, and a typical market.

Overnight in Merida.

Begin the day with a tasty breakfast at the hotel. From Merida, we head to one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. Head deep into the rain forests of the Yucatan peninsula in search of the legendary Maya city of Chichen Itza, which has been laboriously reclaimed from the jungle. Learn about the Maya and their civilization as you admire the scale and detail of this ancient city.

Behold the geometric perfection of the 25-meter-tall Temple of Kukulkan, popularly known as El Castillo (‘the Castle’), which was built both as a representation of the mystical Maya calendar and to reflect the optical illusion of a serpent snaking its way up or down the pyramid during the spring and autumn equinoxes.

Admire the Great Ball Court, the largest of 13 discovered at the site, see the haunting Skull Platform, where the heads of human sacrifice victims and prisoners of war were impaled, and also the Sacred Cenote, where sacrifice victims were dumped. Also extremely well-preserved are the Temple of the Warriors, the Ossuary, the Nunnery and adjacent Church, and the large observatory known as the Snail. Afterwards, we head to Cancun or Riviera Maya, and we will drop you off at your selected hotel (not included in this program) or at Cancun airport. 

End of the tour!
