Mundo Maya - 13 Days

Discover hidden waterfalls, explore ancient Mayan ruins, and trek across jungles on this incredible camping adventure that starts with the crashing surf of the Pacific Ocean and ends in the crystal-clear waters of the Caribbean Sea. This one-way journey, from Oaxaca to Cancun, will take you to some of the best sights in Mexico and the Yucatán.

We begin our adventure in Oaxaca, a charming, cosmopolitan city adorned with jacaranda trees, outdoor cafes, colorful markets and prestigious museums. Visit the nearby ruins of Monte Alban and take in the spectacular views of verdant valleys and mountains after touring the grounds. Returning to the Pacific, we spend the next few days and nights at the beach, camping under the stars and celebrating the New Year.

Our next focus will be San Cristóbal de las Casas and the surrounding Chiapas highland towns. Traditional villages, colorful mercados, colonial monuments, and the cascading waterfalls of Agua Azul await your discovery. After exploring the jungle ruins of Palenque, we visit the thundering waterfall and crystal clear pool of Misol-Ha, where for a small tip, the local kids will show you how to find the hidden cave behind the falls!

The coastal portion of our journey takes us to Majahual, a sleepy little town tucked away on a remote Caribbean beach. Optional activities here include scuba diving, snorkeling and fishing the turquoise seas. After stopping for a refreshing swim in the freshwater pools of Cenote Azul, we'll take a scenic drive up the Mayan Riviera to the beach-side ruins of Tulum. Watch the sun rise against ancient temples and limestone cliffs, and explore this coastal wonder before the crowds arrive. Soak up the sun and relax on the sandy beach before our last camp-out under the stars. We then trek to the jungle ruins of Coba, where you can climb to the top of Nohoc Mul, the tallest pyramid in the Yucatan, for a climactic view of the land you just explored. We finish our adventure in Cancun where we say our evening goodbyes.

Our journey has come to an end, but the magic doesn't have to! After a short break, you can join us for the next segment of this spectacular journey. Pyramids and Playas is an amazing round trip adventure (from Cancun) that explores the best of the Mayan Riviera, Belize and Guatemala.
