Tour Itinerary

Delve into the soul of the Yucatán-home to sun, sea and the glories of an ancient civilisation which once ruled Central America, then mysteriously disappeared.

Day 1 - Arrive Cancun
Warm heart and soul on the sojourn to Mexico's Caribbean playground, Cancun. On arrival, you'll be met with a hearty Mexican bienvenido and transferred to your hotel, where you'll meet your Travel Director and fellow travellers for a Welcome Reception this evening.
Accommodation: InterContinental Presidente Cancun Resort
Meals: Welcome Reception

Day 2 - Cancun – Ek Balam – Valladolid – Izamal – Merida (2 Nights)
Delve into Mayan culture this morning during a visit to the Ek Balam acropolis, whose well-preserved stucco sculptures and painted hieroglyphic inscriptions provide a window into the Mayan soul. We'll journey to Valladolid, once Yucatan's capital and today a sleepy town. Enjoy lunch at a local restaurant, then stroll around its convivial central square before continuing to the colonial jewel of Izamal, said to be the oldest city in the Yucatan. See its yellow buildings glow in the tropical sun and pay a visit to the Franciscan Monastery before ending your day in "The White City" of Merida.
Accommodation: InterContinental Presidente Merida
Meals: Breakfast,

Day 3 - Celestun Excursion
The vivid pink display of hundreds of flamingos takes centre stage during our visit to the UNESCO-listed Celestún Biosphere Reserve through which we'll travel on small boats, navigating its protected lagoons and canals. Relax under the palm-thatched roof of a local beach restaurant at lunch, enjoying some free time to connect with your surrounds. This evening, we'll 'Connect with Locals', joining Chef Don Miguel in the Chaya Maya Mansion kitchen. Prepare for an unforgettable gastronomic 'Be My Guest' encounter that begins with a welcome cocktail symbolic to the region. Sip your Mayita before learning about the traditional dishes with a modern twist you'll be making and sampling for dinner.
Meals: Breakfast, ,

Day 4 - Mérida – Campeche
Ancient meets colonial in the Yucatan's cultural capital of Mérida, which we will have an opportunity to explore in-depth today. View the Paseo de Montejo lined with beautiful Spanish mansions, then visit the Mérida Museum to gain insights into the glories of the city's past. Stroll through the tranquil Central Plaza surrounded by beautiful architecture, see the ornate Casa Montejo, the massive Cathedral and the Palacio del Gobierno with its remarkable collection of murals. We'll travel to the port city of Campeche next, with its colourful colonial history and tales of marauding pirates. Stroll from the magnificent Puerta de Tierra-the main entrance to the Campeche's UNESCO-listed fortified old city-to the Puerta del Mar, which opens up to the Gulf of Mexico. Enjoy an evening at leisure.
Accommodation: Plaza Campeche
Meals: Breakfast

Day 5 - Campeche – Edzná – Uxmal
Journey through the rolling hills of La Ruta Puuc and immerse yourself in Mexico's Mayan Puuc culture and heritage. We'll visit the abandoned city of Edzná which reveals the ornate façades and rituals of this ancient culture. Savour smoky local flavours during a lunch featuring the Yucatecan specialities of pollo and cochinita pibil (chicken and pork wrapped in banana leaves). We'll overnight in a historic hacienda 'Stay with a Story' that has attracted world leaders and royalty.
Accommodation: Hacienda Uxmal Plantation and Museum
Meals: Breakfast,

Day 6 - Uxmal – Sotuta de Peón – Chichén Itzá
Few sites reflect the glories of Maya architecture better than the UNESCO-listed Uxmal. Gaze up at its House of the Magician, built in one night as legend would have it. See the Governor's Palace with its tributes to the rain god Chaac and the House of Turtles, among other spectacular examples of Mayan construction. At the living history museum of Hacienda Sotuta de Peón, we'll step back in time to the age of the haciendas. 'Dive into Culture' and learn about henequen (sisal fiber), the green gold of the Yucatán during the colonial era. We'll visit the main house and the still-active processing plant, then hop on a mule-drawn rail cart to visit one of the cenotes (natural wells) that dot the Yucatán countryside. Later this afternoon, we journey to our 'Stay with a Story' located next to the famous Mayan archaeological site of Chichén Itzá.
Accommodation: Mayaland
Meals: Breakfast,

Day 7 - Chichén Itzá Sightseeing – Cancun
Rise with the birds and stroll through the ruins of the UNESCO-listed Chichén Itzá, savouring the rare opportunity to be the first visitors on site.

This afternoon, we'll return to Cancun for some free time to embrace fun and freedom in this Caribbean beach playground. Our journey almost at its end, we'll join our travel companions for a lively Farewell Dinner.

Hygiene and Safety Protocols for Trafalgar Tours

Trafalgar has introduced these enhanced hygiene protocols – for you and team members.

You can travel with Trafalgar and be assured that their team has put numerous new measures in place to elevate their hygiene standards and protocols. The well-being of guests and team has always been, and always will be, their primary concern.

In this new, fast changing Covid-19 era, Trafalgar is doing all they can to adapt to new requirements and expectations. Here are some important new steps and procedures that they have implemented to enhance hygiene protocols, to comply with physical distancing requirements by relevant government authorities and to give you the peace of mind when you are traveling during these new times.

Expertly Trained Travel Directors

Travel Director training equips them with enhanced hygiene and physical distancing procedures. During your trip, they will operate with a duty of care and monitor the hygiene etiquette of the guests, reacting and advising as needed, to ensure high standards are maintained. Before you travel, Trafalgar will also keep you well informed about new protocols required in these areas, and ask that you cooperate with and heed the advice and direction of Travel Directors while on your trip. The Travel Directors have preventative measures in place to try and ensure your well-being and in the event that any unexpected issues arise on trip, they will activate additional protocols.

Stringent On-the-Road Protocols

The customized luxury coaches are sanitised before the start of your trip and have always been kept to very high standards. Following the outbreak of COVID-19, Trafalgar have taken additional measures to elevate hygiene and sanitary practices in accordance with guidance from the World Health Organisation (WHO) and as required, applicable government regulations. The Driver training provides them with the latest hygiene protocols. They will clean and disinfect all surfaces including handrails, door handles, tables, seats, air-conditioning filters and overhead lockers on a daily basis. All the guests are asked to follow hygiene practices recommended by the World Health Organisation including the thorough and regular washing of hands and sanitising when required. Hand sanitiser is freely available on board for your use throughout the day. Please bring your own washable face mask and gloves with you, and additional hand sanitiser to make you feel comfortable, as these will be required to be worn in public in some countries. Should an unexpected situation arise, additional face masks, rubber gloves, antiviral sprays and wipes will be available for guest distribution on all trips.

A Full Team of Support 24/7

It’s not just your Travel Director and Driver who will be taking care of you. Behind the scenes, the operations and guest support teams are in contact with them and on call 24/7, so you can rest assured that you’re in good hands.

Physical Distancing

Adapting to the right size groups, based on government distancing requirements, you can rest assured that you will travel with the comfort of your own personal space. Have peace of mind that all of the experiences, hotels and restaurants you’ll enjoy on your trip have been vetted to ensure they adhere to physical distancing and hygiene guidelines.

Trusted Partners, Exceptional Standards

Trafalgar is very selective in who they work with and choose to only use hotels, restaurants, ground handlers and venues that take the well-being of the guests as seriously as Trafalgar does and agrees to meet expected guidelines and specifications. Trafalgar only works with establishments that they are confident will consistently adhere to their high standards.

Always in the Know

As part of The Travel Corporation (TTC) , Trafalgar is kept up to date with all government advisories and travel alerts on a daily basis and is continually in touch with all of the partners on the ground in each destination. Also, rest assured that during your trip, the teams work to ensure the supplier partners (hotels, restaurants, museums and other venues) are also applying the same standard to these new hygiene and distancing protocols, to the extent possible.

Questions & Answers

Question: How many suitcases can I take with me on my trip?

Each person is allowed one "check-in," and one "carry-on." Remember to take all valuables with you as "carry-on", because electronic equipment, cameras, laptops, jewelry, business documents and money are not covered by the airlines' liability, so always carry them aboard with you.

Question: Is Airfare Included in the Price?

Airfare from your point of origin to and from the trip is not included in the land price.

This is the second trip we have taken with Trafalgar and I may book in the future if the itinerary is the one I am looking for. I do prefer Globus though. While you may be booked into the same hotels, the rooms are usually a bit upgraded as in rooms with a view.

Trip was well paced with ample time at each destination and not a lot of idle time. Tour guide was well organized and all activities were as stated.
