Tour DEtails

 

Day 1 – Arrival
Our driver will expect you at Cancun Airport. Please look out for the sign with your name on it. You will be brought into your hotel in Playa del Carmen or Riviera Maya. The transfer should take approx. 40 to 60 minutes.


Day 2 – Tulum, Lagoon Bacalar

From our staff member your car will be deliverd directly to your hotel today. As a standard time 9.00 o'clock is scheduled.
If you book a rental car tour with Mextrotter, your car will be brought to your hotel and be picked up at your last hotel, or a place agreed upon, by our employees. In your travel documents you will find information about the logistic planning of all this. Also we provide (to download) maps on how to get to all the hotels. Another option is to rent a GPS with us so you are sure you will not get lost. Another option, to get a good idea of all distances etc, is to go to the website www.sct.gob.mx. Here you can click on a link ´Traza Tu Ruta´, where you can find a lot of information (the website is also availabl in English). Make sure you don´t get too surprised by the ´topes´, on the roads, they are everywhere and nowwhere. Driving in Mexico means that you need to follow you instinct, not the rules you were examined for once. We are sure you will have a wonderful vacation! On the coastal road of the Riviera Maya you can reach Tulum in less than one hour. The small, but beautiful Mayan Site of Tulum is certainly - not just because of its very beautiful location - one of the most beautiful in Mexico. The fortress proudly sits on a cliff above the turquoise Caribbean Sea. The site overlooks the bay, which is a good place to go for a swim. You drive past the port Felipe Carillo and reach in aproximately 3 hours Bacalar, which is 40 km north the border to Belize. The beautiful lagoon of Bacalar is located about 40 kilometers towards north from Chetumal and the border to Belize and it is an insider tip away from the crowds. The turquoise-blue, calm and shallow water of the lagoon is ideal for swimming.

Day 3 – Calakmul
You cross the peninsula Yucatan in the south towards to Calakmul. It takes about 3 hours to get there. The archaeological site of Calakmul is one of the largest in the country, but is because of its remote location less visited by tourists. Over the country road it goes about 60 km into the rainforest to the border of Guatemala. The temple is still in a very natural condition, and because of this it stands in contrast to the "beautifully restored" cities of Palenque, Uxmal or Chichen Itza. In Calakmul most of the building structures are still hidden in the rainforest. Only the tops of the highest temples, which you can climb on, look out of the woods. The visit takes about 2 hours. At the entrance to the biosphere from Calakmul (60 km before the archaeological excavation) is the jungle lodge Puerta Calakmul located. There you will stay this night. Although you are in the middle of nowhere, you will find - even if its sometimes a little bit improvised - all amenities and wireless internet in the restaurant!

 

Day 4 – Palenque
You leave Calakmul towards west and come after about one hour drive in Escarcega. From there it goes along the Gulf Coast to Palenque, where you arrive after another four hours. The journey is varied and there are many agriculture areas. Palenque is located between the highlands of Chiapas and the Gulf Coast. Because of this location the state, king Pakal, his successors and son Na Balom were influenced. Most of the beautifully renovated building, 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 regions of Chiapas. A two to three hours tour starts at the central square and goes over the ball-playground over the jungle alley to the regional museum.


Day 5 – Agua Azul
The waterfalls of Agua Azul (60 kilometers from Palenque) are ideal for a day trip. The drive takes about one hour. The waterfalls which looks like terraces, are stretched over several kilometers in the rainforest. In certain areas, you can swim to refresh yourself. About 15 kilometers towards west from Palenque is the 35-meter-high waterfall Mishol Ha which was the setting place for several Hollywood films (including Predator).It Is a nice photo stop. There is also the opportunity to swim in the big natural pool.

Day 6 - Campeche
The trip Palenque - Campeche (approximately 5 hours) leads you from the rainforest in Chiapas through agriculture areas dominated in Yucatan. At Sabancuy you are at the coast of the Gulf of Mexico and you continue driving through Champoton to Campeche. 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 belong to the UNESCO world heritage, are from that time.

 

Campeche

 

Day 7 – Puuc Route, Uxmal
Passing several Mayan villages it takes about 90 minutes to the Puuc region, the only area in Yucatan with hills (Puuc means hill in Maya). The caves of Loltún consist of a several kilometers long, walk-in cave system and give a fantastic insight into the underworld of the Maya. Once under the earth there was a small town where 3000 people lived. Loltún lived from pottery products which were exported far beyond the region. The visit takes about 1.5 hours and is an unforgettable experience of your journey. The Mayan site of Uxmal, which means "three times built", is the largest in the Puuc region. The excavation is dominated by the magnificent temple of the soothsayer and the nuns. In addition, the playing field, the Governor's Palace and the turtle house are other important points. Uxmal was dominant in the classical Mayan period (5th to 8th century.) in the region of northern Yucatan and was important for trade relations and networks to other Mayan sites.

Enjoy the evening in a mystical world and enjoy the archaeological site of Uxmal in a sound and light cloud. You can see the approx 1.5 hours long spectacle sitting on the main staircase of the nuns' quadrant.

 

Day 8 – National Park Celestun, Merida
Leave the Puuc region and drive along the coast of the Gulf of Mexico to Celestun. The trip goes first towards Merida, where you pass a Sisalhacienda and you can make a photo stop. Passing Uman it goes down to the coast. The varied journey is marked from sisal fields which are replaced closer to the coast of mangrove forests. The national park at the Gulf coast is a paradise for flamingos and other birds species that settle in the lagoon between mangrove forests. On a boat trip (depending on the water in the lagoon 1.5 - 2 hours) you can enjoy nature and then relax on the beach, after having tasted fresh seafood and fish in one of the lovely beach restaurants. From the coast you drive about 2 hours over Uman into rural areas to Merida. Merida - the white city – is known for its beautiful, lively historic center. At the main square, which is called Plaza, not as usual in Mexico Zocalo, is the cathedral, the Montejo house and the government palace of the provincial government, which is decorated by paintings by Francisco Castro. The Santa Lucia Park was one of the most romantic of the city and at the boulevard of the Paseo de Montejo you can guess the wealth of the city, when in Merida were more millionaires than in Paris or New York (because of the Sisal-temperature).

 

Day 9 – Izamal, Chichen Itza, Caribbean beach

From Merida you continue the trip and you arrive after about 1.5 hours in Izamal. The huge convention in the yellow colored town Izamal is one of the most impressive and most beautiful in Yucatan. The mighty fortress still represents the inquisition of the early colonial period. Here the famous missionary Fray Diego de Landa demolished hundreds of Maya Codes. On the other side of the beautifully manicured main square is also a very nice Maya excavation. From Izamal it is just a little drive on the highway 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. Not less 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 from the classic Maya times. First you drive towards Valladolid and from there to the Caribbean coast, which you will reach at Tulum. From there it takes about 45 minutes on the motorway to the Riviera Maya to Playa del Carmen. Our staff member expects you at around 18 o'clock in the lobby of your hotel. You can give the rented car easily back.

Program after your tour

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

 

Here you find an overview of the beach hotels according to category:

 

  • GOOD AND AFFORDABLE > show
  • CABAÑAHOTELS (small resorts in bungalow stylel) > show
  • ALL-INCLUSIVE-RESORTS > show

 

If you make your round trip by rental car and you want to relax after a long flight it would be a great idea to arrive in Cancun one or two days before the journey starts.
