The Yucatan Peninsula is the homeland
of the Mayan people, whose mighty empire lasted over a thousand
years. Throughout the peninsula are the amazing archaeological
ruins of their great cities—Chichén Itzá, Uxmal,
Edzna and many more. In addition, the Yucatan has lovely colonial
cities and beautiful Caribbean beaches.
Bordering Guatemala, Mexico’s State of Chiapas has mountains,
rivers and jungles. In its remote Indian villages people still
wear traditional costumes, live in grass-roofed huts and plant
cornfields on near-vertical hillsides. The beautiful mountain town
of San Cristóbal de las Casas, magnificent Agua Azul falls,
the jungle-draped ruins of Palenque, and spectacular Cañon
del Sumidero are some of the highlights of this delightful region.
We offer a wide range of
worry-free private adventures designed for the independent traveler—all
at reasonable prices. In addition, they can be combined with our Copper
trips for an even more spectacular vacation.
