Day 1 - Arrival

After your arrival at Cancun Airport you will be taken to your hotel..

 

Day 2 - Chichen Itza, Merida

You get your bus tickets with seat reservations on your name in first class buses by email prior to your arrival in Mexico. You can take a taxi directly from your hotel to the bus terminal. After arrival take a taxi from the bus terminal to your hotel.  In some places i.e. in San Cristóbal, the bus terminal is in the center and you can also walk to the hotel . Today, at  9.00 in the morning, you go by bus from Cancun to Chichen Itza. The central building of the Maya and Toltec site Chichen Itza is the temple of Kukulcan, with 91 steps on each of the four sides. Equally impressive is the huge ball playground, where once the rituals took place. On the front of the big central square is the Palace of the thousand columns. There are also the observatory and other sites, which date to the classic Maya times. Later the trip continues in the first class bus to Merida that will be reached in less than 2 hours. 

 

Chichen_Izal

 

Day 3 - Uxmal, Kabah

Today you will discover a bit more of Yucatán. First you will visit the site KabaH in the so-called Puuc region. Its name probably refers to a sculpture of a man holding a snake at the entrance of the site. Later you will continue to Uxmal, the most important archaeological site in the Puuc region. (Entrance fees included).The  impressive constructions of this site are dominated by the Palace of the Magician, the Nuns Quadrant and the Governor´s Palace. You will spend enough time here to receive a full explanation of this place. After this visit you will have lunch (included in the price) and then head back to your hotel in Merida.

 

Day 4 - National Park Celestun

You will be picked up at the hotel lobby at around 9:00 am and taken to the National Park Celestun, about 100 km west of Merida.  Celestun a paradise for all kinds of birds but especially flamingos found the ideal place to live in the shallow lagoon. You will have the opportunity to watch the birds in an approximately 1.5 hour boat tour. (The length of the tour depends on the water level.) Back at the beach you may want to try fresh sea food (not included in the price). Later in the afternoon you will return to your hotel in Merida.

Day 5 -Campeche

You continue the trip to Campeche, where you arrive after a two hours bus ride. Campeche was one of the first cities founded by the Spanish on the peninsula Yucatan. The conquistador Francisco Montejo founded the city, which quickly became the main commercial center of the New World and was therefore interesting for pirates. The mighty city walls, which are considered a  UNESCO world heritage, date back to that time.

 

Day 6 - Palenque

This morning you leave Campeche. The journey takes you along the Gulf coast to the jungle region of Chiapas, where you arrive in the early afternoon.

 

PALENQUE

 

Day 7 - Bonampak, Yaxchilan

Today you will have an early start, since the ruins of Bonampak are a little bit further away from Palenque. On the way to Bonampak you will make a short stop for breakfast.  The archaeological site  in the Lacandon jungle is known for its impressive frescoes. Lacadon Indians will take you to the temples. Afterwards you continue to Corozal, located at the border river Usamacinta. By boat you reach the Mayan site of Yaxchilan in about 45 minutes. From the 6th to the 8th century Yaxchilan was a rival state of Palenque and Tikal. Already from the boat you will marvel at the dimension of this complex. In the late afternoon you will go back to Palenque.

 

Day 8 - San Cristobal

Palenque was erected at the junction between the highland of Chiapas and the vast plain of the Gulf coast. In the 7th century the city-state under King Pakal and his successor and son Na Balom experienced its heyday.. Most of the beautifully renovated buildings like the Temple of Inscriptions (where Pakal found his resting place), the Palace and the Temple of the Sun and the Cross-Temple, were built in the time when Palenque dominated the region of Chiapas. The two to three hours tour starts at the central square and leads over the ball playground, through the jungle alley to the regional museum.

 

The journey in the comfortable public bus takes you over winding roads from the tropical region of Palenque to the highlands of Chiapas in 5 hours. San Cristobal which is located in over 2000 meters above sea level. In winter it can be quite cold at night. With its different ethnic groups San Cristóbal is one of the culturally most diverse cities in Mexico. The central market of San Cristobal in particular shows the visitors the  colorful cultural mix. If you walk from the main square to the market you have the opportunity to visit the magnificent decorated Sto Domingo Church. In the evening you may want to join an event  in the Casa de las Culturas or you may stroll in the city and have dinner in one of the excellent restaurants.

 

Day 9 - Indigenous villages

Today you will visit 2 small indigenous villages located close to San Cristobal. In Zinacantán you will visit a traditional Tzotzil family. After this visit you will continue to San Juan Chamula. In the church of this village typical pre-hispanic rituals are still performed today. You can observe people sacrificing chicken for the sick and expelling evil spirits. After these visits you will go back to San Cristobal.

Day 10 - Panajachel

Today you will leave your hotel in San Cristobal at 07:00 am to arrive 8 hours later in Panajachel, Guatemala. You will first go to the boarder with Guatemala. Here, at Mesilla, you will have to hand over some documentation, and pay some fees. After this you will continue to Panajachel. The service is operated as a shuttleservice. There will be no stops during the trip.

 

Day 11 - Atitlan lake

Panajachel and Santiago are the largest cities at the beautiful lake Atitlan, and an ideal starting point to explore the lake which is encircled by volcanoes. In the pedestrian zone of Santander you will find a lot of shops, bars and restaurants. According to Humboldt, Lake Atitlan is the "most beautiful lake of the world" located in the Guatemalan highlands in 1560 meters above sea level. The third largest lake of Guatemala is surrounded by three more than 10.000 feet high volcanoes: Atitlán, Tolimán and San Pedro, all more than 10,000 feet high.

 

Day 12 - Antigua

Today you will get a shuttleservice from Panajachel to Antigua. The trip takes about 3 hours. Your destination Antigua is an old colonial city and one of the most beautiful destinations in Guatemala.

 

Antigua

 

Day 13 - Antigua

In 1524, in  the train of the conquest of Guatemala by Pedro de Alvarado, the Spanish chose their first capital to be Iximché(Chimaltenango). Later, they moved it to Santiago de Goathenala, 6 kilometers away, which is today's vieja (old) Antigua. Today Antigua is one of the most visited and most beautiful colonial cities in Central America.

 

Day 14 - Flight to Flores

You leave Antigua and will be taken to the airport of Guatemala City for your flight to Flores.  The flight takes one hour and you will enjoy the view over the wide jungle. You will take a taxi by yourself from the airport to your hotel.

 

Day 15 - National Park Tikal

In the morning you will be picked up in your hotel and taken to the Tikal National Park (1 hour drive). Together with an English speaking tour guide you will visit the impressive Mayan site that used to be one of the most important Mayan cities in the Classic Maya period (3rd to 9th century). In this day trip the entrance fee for the excavation site, the National Park and a lunch are included. In the afternoon you will return to your hotel in El Remate or Flores, unless you spend the night in Tikal if the program says so.

Departure time from your hotel is at 7:30 (Flores) or 8:00 (El Remate). Please take into consideration that there may be a short delay in the pick up time. If the delay exceeds 20 minutes, please call the number of our Guatemalan partner agency on the coupon. (Please consider that there may not be summer time in Guatemala so there may be a time difference of one hour between Mexico and Guatemala .) You will arrive at your hotel in El Remate at around 14:00 o'clock and in Flores at around 15:00 o'clock.

 

Day 16 - Belize City

Today you take the bus from Flores to Belize City. The bus normally leaves at 05:00 am, so you will have to get up quite early! The stop at the boarder Guatemala - Belize normally takes 30 minutes (boarder charges per person are not included in the price). Upon arrival in Belize City you continue your way to one of the islands or you go back to Mexico.
