5 Days / 4 Nights
Valladolid – Tulum
Day 1: Arrival in Vallodolid
Upon arrival at Cancun International Airport, travellers meet our representative outside the arrival hall. Drive to the first hotel, where the guide gives a little briefing. Dinner is included on the first evening.
Day 2: Valladolid – Chichen Itza
After breakfast, drive to Chichen Itza, the wonder of the world and the most famous and best-preserved archaeological site in Mexico. Highlights of this archaeological site are the imposing Kukulkan Pyramid, the vast ball court and the observatory “El Caracol”. Afterwards, go for a quick stop to Izamal. The city was once the centre of worship for Itzamnás, the sky and creator God of the Maya, and the sun god Kinich-Kakmó. Today, it is the Franciscan convent San Antonio de Padua, with the largest atrium in Latin America.
Day 3: Vallodolid – Chukum
After breakfast, explore Valladolid’s downtown with the guide and discover the local market housed in a beautiful arched colonial-style building. This market houses vendors offering everyday products such as fruit, vegetables, and meat, but it is also a vibrant, colourful place that provides an excellent opportunity to buy souvenirs. Then, drive to Hacienda Chukum to enjoy a relaxing dip in a magnificent cenote (sinkhole) beside an open-air restaurant. In the restaurant, get to grips with Mexican cuisine with a cooking class. Enjoy a lunch buffet of the creations before driving to Tulum.
Day 4: Tulum
The day is free at leisure, but we invite travellers to join our fantastic optional Tulum tour. Tulum is a pre-Colombian Mayan walled city perched atop the cliffs overlooking the Caribbean Sea. Situated on this rugged coastline, with the turquoise water just below beside the pristine beach and with mangrove forests nearby, it’s a stunning location in which to explore these ruins. Explore Tulum and learn about the origins and decline of its existence on a half-day excursion with our guide.
Day 5: Departure
After breakfast, enjoy the last chance to capture the magic of Tulum before taking the transfer to the airport.
