You’ll land in Cancun, but won’t stay for long, as we’re whisking you straight off to the beach paradise of ‘Be Tulum’ boutique hotel for instant luxury. Take a few days to laze on the idyllic beach and soak up the exotic sunshine. Embark on a private tour of the Tulum ruins and Sian Kaán nature reserve – a mixture of the most beautiful Mayan monuments and breath taking wildlife, flora and fauna. There’s no better place on earth to take a stroll.
Now you’re well-rested, sun-tanned and without a shred of jetlag remaining, it’s time to get adventurous. Get your snorkel on or even better your diving gear and head out with your personal guide to explore all the mystery the underground caves and sinkholes (or ‘cenotes’) have to offer. Every cenote provides a different set of challenges, discoveries and incredible wildlife to swim amongst.
Catch the Mexican sunrise with an early start, as your private guide takes you to the Mayan ruins of Chichén-Itzá. This series of pyramids and impressively hand-built structures is over 1500 years old and the most famous on the Yucatán peninsula. We’ll make sure you avoid the masses on your very own personal tour. El Castillo del Serpiente Emplumado is the main attraction so you’ll head straight here for a wander before learning all about the nearby Cenote Sagrado, a gaping sink hole once used for human sacrifice. Once your day tour is over, we’ll take you west, to the tip of Yucatán and the hustle and bustle of Merida.
Urban Colors of Merida
Spend the night in your urban retreat, the elegant La Hacienda, before waking for a half-day historical tour of the colonial city. On this brief but invigorating outing you’ll take in the sights of the main Zocalo, the museum of Canton Palace and the Monumento a la Patria. After this quick leap into Mexico’s history, we insist on you traversing the city as you please. Exploring yourself, you will stumble upon the very best in art, dining and Yucatan culture. Make the most of the wondrous city life, as the beach awaits once again.
Rejuvenate at the Maroma
It’s off to your last beautiful location to spend the remaining few days now, but we wouldn’t let you get there without seeing something beautiful on the way. You’ll stop off in the ‘Yellow City’ of Izamal, a city named after the brightly coloured buildings. Then, onwards to Maroma Resort for pure relaxation. Both jungle and beach surround you, not to mention the sparkling coral reef just off-shore packed with exotic fish. Spend the last few days of the trip being inspired and propelled by Black Tomato and the Cadillac XT5, then make plans for your next adventure and awaken new possibilities.
