Tour Details

 

Day 1 – Arrival
After your arrival in Mexico City you will be expected by an employee who will take you to your hotel in the center of the metropolis. Depending on the traffic, the transfer will take between 20 and 40 minutes.


Day 2 – Citytour Mexiko City
Discover the capital of Mexico from the top of an open tourist bus (the price of the ticket is not included, you need to buy the ticket in the bus). Buses leave every 30 minutes between 9:00 am and 22:00 pm and you can get off and on the bus at any of the bus stops, if you want to. An audio guide gives information in different languages about all important sights of the city.

Day 3 – Teotihuacan
About 60 km northeast of Mexico City are the pyramids of Teotihuacan, witnesses of one of the greatest civilizations of Mexico that constructed the pyramids of the Sun and the Moon about 2000 years ago. Part of the trip in a shuttle taxi (entrance fee to the site is included) is also a short photo stop at the Square of the Three Cultures, and a visit to the Basilica of Guadalupe,  dedicated to the patron saint of Mexico.

 

Day 4 – Xochimilco
Please wait for your shuttle taxi between 9:00 and 9:30 in the hotel lobby. Since the taxi has to stop at several hotels on the route we ask you to be a bit flexible as far as departure time is concerned. The tour takes you to the south of the metropolis where you make a stop at the university UNAM. On the wall of the building of the library you will admire the world's largest mosaic. Also the Olympic Stadium is worth a visit. Later you continue your trip to the floating gardens of Xochimilco. The huge national park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is criss-crossed by canals and can be traversed with raft-like gondolas. Many Mexicans visit the place on weekends to enjoy life with Mariachi music and Corona beer. You will experience Mexican flair on a boat ride of about 1.5 hours. On your way back to your hotel (where you arrive at about 3:00 pm) you can ask the driver to drop you off in the artist quarter of Coyoacan where you can enjoy a cup of coffee on the main square, surrounded by book stores and art exhibitions.  From Coyoacan you can easily take a taxi back to your hotel.

 

xochimilco

 

Day 5 – Sumidero Canyon, San Cristobal
You fly from Mexico City to Tuxtla,  the capital of Chiapas (see departure time in your offer). A few minutes after the start you will see the snowy peaks of Popocatepetl and Iztaccihuatl and, a little further to the left, the highest mountain in Mexico, the Pico de Orizaba. After 1.5 hours you arrive in Tuxtla and drive to Chiapa de Corzo, where you reach the entrance of the Sumidero Canyon in about 40 minutes. You take a taxi on your own to the pier Cuahare (price about 10 Euro) that is located at the entrance of the Canyon about 5 km outside Tuxtla. At 10:00 am you meet the group coming from San Cristóbal that shares the shuttle taxi with you. Please wait at the stairs next to the restaurant Rio Grande. You leave your luggage in the mini bus and go on a 1.5 hour boat tour through the 1000 meter deep canyon. Then you drive to the nice village of Chiapa de Corzo, where you have time for lunch (not included in the price). Later you will be taken back to your hotel in San Cristóbal. San Cristobal is located at 2000 meters above sea level and sometimes it can be quite cold at night. The area in and around San Cristobal, inhabited by numerous different ethnic groups, belongs to Mexico's most important regions. The bustling market gives visitors a wonderful insight into the diversity of this region. Close to the market there is the beautiful Sto. Domingo church decorated with lavish stucco. In the evening you can join an event in the Casa de las Culturas or you can stroll in the center and enjoy the excellent restaurants.

 

Day 6 – Indigenous villages

Around 10:00 am you will be picked up at your hotel. With a small group of visitors you will go to the remote village of  Zinacatan, 15 km away from San Cristóbal, where you will visit a Tzotzil family. Then the journey takes you to San Juan Chamula where you will have the opportunity to take pictures of the colorful local market. In the village church, however, you are not allowed to take pictures. Here, rituals dating back to pre-Hispanic times are still practiced. Chickens are sacrificed and evil spirits are expelled inside the church. In the early afternoon you return to San Cristobal where you still have enough time to enjoy the picturesque city. 

 

Day 7 – Agua Azul, Palenque

Today we start very early in the morning. Instead of a breakfast in your hotel in San Cristóbal you get a lunch box. (Please let the hotel know the day before!) A shuttle taxi will pick you up at your hotel at 6:30 am. The journey leads you from the highlands of Chiapas to the lower regions and slowly it is getting warmer and more humid. After a four hour drive  on a winding country road (a stop  for breakfast is planned) you will reach the waterfalls of Agua Azul where the water is floating down over terraces surrounded by tropícal vegetation. Here you have the opportunity to swim, but the current can be quite strong. After lunch (not included in the price) you soon reach the Mayan site of Palenque. Palenque was founded at the junction between the foothills of the highlands of Chiapas and the vast plains of the Gulf Coast. The city witnessed its heyday in the 7th century under King Pakal and his successor and son Na Balom. Most of today's magnificently renovated buildings like the Temple of the Inscriptions (where Pakal has his resting place), the palaces, the temple of the sun and the cross, were built in the time when Palenque dominated vast regions of present-day Chiapas. The two to three  hour tour starts at the central square, goes on to the ball court and along a jungle path to the Regional Museum.

 

PALENQUE

 

Day 8 – Campeche
Today in the morning you leave the jungle region of Chiapas. The ride in the comfortable bus goes partly along the Gulf coast to Campeche, where you will arrive in the early afternoon. Campeche was one of the first cities founded by the Spanish on the peninsula Yucatan. Quickly it became the main commercial center of the New World and was therefore also an interesting place for pirates. The mighty city walls, which now belong to the UNESCO world heritage, were built to defend the city from these intruders.

 

Day 9 – Merida

In the morning you continue your trip to Merida, where you arrive after a two hour bus ride. Merida, the white city, is known for its beautiful and bustling historic center. On the main square, which is called Plaza,  there are  the cathedral, the Montejo house and the government palace, which is decorated with paintings by Francisco Castro. The Santa Lucia Park is one of the most romantic of the city and the boulevard Paseo de Montejo shows the former wealth of the city, when Yucatan was famous for its production of sisal and more millionaires lived in Merida than in Paris or New York. 

 

Day 10 – Umxal, Puuc Route

You will be picked up in the hotel lobby at about 9:15. From Merida you drive about 80 km to Uxmal and go on for 20 km to the Mayan site of Kabah (entrance included). You explore the excavations on your own before you return to Uxmal (entrance included). The site is the largest of the so-called Puuc route and is dominated by the Palace of the Magician, the Nuns' Quadrant and the Governor's Palace. Later you go for lunch (not included in the price) and return to Merida in the afternoon.

Day 11 – Celestun National Park
Today you will be picked up at 9:15 in the lobby of your hotel and taken to the national park Celestun which is located about 100 km west of Merida, next to the coast. Celestun is a true paradise for all kinds of birds but it is a special place for Flamingos which you can observe during a 1.5 hour boat tour. (The length of the boat tour depends on the water level. If the water level is low you cannot float too close to the Flamingos.) Later you can eat fresh seafood at the beach (not included in the price), then you will be brought back to Merida.

 

Day 12 – Chichen Itza, Beach
In the morning you go to Chichen Itza. The ride in the first Class bus takes about two hours. You can leave your luggage at the main entrance. The central building of the Maya and Toltec site is the temple of Kukulcan, with 91 steps on each of the four sides. Equally impressive is the huge ball playground, where once brutal rituals were performed. In the front of the big central square is the Palace of the Thousand Columns. There are also the Observatory and other sites from the Classic Mayan period. After this unforgettable visit of Chichen Itza, you will continue your trip to Playa del Carmen. The first Class bus starts from the parking lot outside the main entrance and takes you first to Tulum and from there north to Playa del Carmen, where you will arrive in the early evening.

Program after your trip

After this unique trip we recommend a prolongation of your vacation (from 3 to 5 days) at one of the uncountable white sand beaches of the Caribbean in order to relax and digest the impressions of your journey.
