Travel tip & Info
If you want to enjoy a longer trip we recommend our Mayaworld Yucatan tour
Price per Person
Total price for ALL Travellers:
Day 1 – Campeche
In the morning you will travel in a public bus (first class) from Cancun to Merida. You continue the trip to Campeche, where you arrive after about two hours bus ride.
Day 2 – Uxmal, Merida
After a walk in Campeche you will be going to the so called Puuc region, which you will reach in one and a half hours. On the way you have the possibility to stop in a Mayan village and visit the simple housings of the inhabitants. Uxmal is the most important side of the Puuc region and is dominated by the Pyramid of the Fortuneteller and the monk’s quadrant. After the visit you will stop on the way to Merida in order to have lunch (not included in price). In Merida you will experience the Caribbean enjoyment of life. Enjoy a cocktail in a bar at the Santa Lucia Park.
Day 3 – Izamal, Chichen Itza
Located about an hour away from Merida you will find one of the most beautiful and best preserved convents of colonial times. After the visit the journey continues to Chichen Itza, a must for every Yucatan tour. Before you will arrive to Valladolid in the evening you will have the possibility to visit a Cenote (water-well) to get all freshened-up.
Day 4 – Rio Lagartos, Karibikstrand
On the last day of your tour you will visit a place hardly anyone goes to, but that is definitely worth a visit. In the National Park Rio Lagartos one can observe many birds, mainly flamingo´s, in their natural habitat, a wonderful experience. After this you can eat some wonderful fish before you will be brought to your beach hotel.
PROGRAM before or AFTER THE TOUR
This round trip can be made before or after a longer beach extension. We recommend a couple of days on the beach before your trip and afterwards a longer extension on one of the white sandy beaches of the Caribbean.
Here you find an overview of the beach hotels according to category:

How to guarantee that a small group tour will take place?
Our small group tours will be conducted with a minimum of 4 people (in some cases even with 2 people), which excludes almost always a cancellation of the tour. You will find the current number of participants in the travel configurator. If there are only 4 or less travelers of one language in a group the exceptional case may happen and a trip may be run multilingual (eg German & English).
Skeptical about internet bookings?
Only with Mextrotter: Travel first, pay afterwards! By paying only 4% extra you enjoy your trip first and pay within 7 days after you go back home.
How do I book with Mextrotter?

When is the best time to travel to Mexico?
You can travel to Mexico throughout the whole year. As a traveller you are probably a bit worried about the rainy season spoiling the pleasure of your travel. As Europeans you may associate rain with wind, coolness, damp weather and staying inside your house. However, this is different in Mexico.
First of all, during the rainy season in Mexico it seldom rains during the day; it mainly rains during the night. The rain falls down as short, strong showers and it hardly cools down the country: it remains warm. For all these reasons, we recommend you not to plan your trip to Mexico solely on the basis of the rainy season. However, if you still do not want to travel around during the rainy season, you can best do so from November to March.
PARTICULAR CAUTION when arriving to Cancun, why?
Unfortunately, the airport at Cancun is known for the mean tricks of taxi and transfer shuttle drivers. These "pirates" often recruit customers from tour operators, and charge the cost of the transfer with the excuse that it will be reimbursed the next day by the tour guide. The false transfer drivers proceed very professionally, and they usually conspire with the hotel staff, who illegally inform them of their customers' arrival dates.
If you have any suspicions, please make sure to call our emergency number, or the number of our transfer coordinator in Cancun (you can find the number on your transfer voucher). In case you are the victim of a transfer pirate, you should certainly not pay the bill. We want to point out that expenses of this kind will not be refunded by Mextrotter.
What costs should I calculate per day (food, drinks)?
Be aware that the price level in Mexico is approximately 40% lower than in Europe. In other words: food and drinks cost about half the price (excluding table wine, which is quite expensive in Mexico). A guide for personal meal expenses could be 15 to 30 Euro per person per day. The exact amount you spend per day depends on your drinking and eating habits.
