ITINERARY

Show All

Today depart from Auckland, *Wellington or *Christchurch for Cancun, Mexico (via the USA). Fly with either American Airlines, Delta Airways, United Airlines or Virgin Australia to name a few (subject to availability). Upon arrival into Cancun you will be transferred to the hotel.

Please note: Due to flight scheduling and availability, some departures may occur on day 0. Affected customers must be at the airport the night before. Flight times will be indicated on your final documentation which you will receive prior to departure.

Overnight: Smart Cancun By Oasis or similar, Cancun

Meals included: In-Flight

Today meet your tour leader and depart Cancun for Merida. You will make two stops along the way, the first one being Chichen Itza, a large pre-Columbian city built by the Mayan people of the Terminal Classic period. The famous Mayan pyramids of Chichen Itza are more than 1500 years old. The Maya name “Chichen Itza” means “At the mouth of the well of the Itza”. Some say this is because people were often thrown into the nearby cenote as sacrifices and those who survived were believed to be seers (prophets). Chichen Itza is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is one of the ‘7 Wonders of the World’, a unique place to be discovered.

Afterwards, drive to Izamal. In ancient times, Izamal was a centre for the worship of the supreme Mayan god, Itzamna, and the sun god, Kinich-Kakmo. A dozen temple pyramids were devoted to these gods. Perhaps these bold expressions of religion are why the Spanish colonists chose Izamal as the site for an enormous Franciscan monastery, the Convento de San Antonio de Padua, which today stands at the heart of the town. See the sites of this impressive monastery, the Mayan ruins, and the streets of this quiet, colonial gem, nicknamed “La Ciudad Amarilla” (the yellow city) because of the traditional yellow that most buildings are painted in. Continue onto Merida and check-in to the hotel upon arrival.

Overnight: Hotel Colonial or similar, Merida

Meals included: Breakfast

This morning the guide will take you on a walking tour of Merida. This city is the social and economic centre, and capital, of the state of Yucatan. The city’s main boulevard, Paseo Montejo, is home to impressive European-style mansions with pastel shades and elaborate trim, which are reminiscent of lavishly iced wedding cakes. Enjoy a panoramic city tour and then continue on to the natural reserve of Celestún where you will see some of the beautiful nature that Yucatan has to offer. You will make a boat ride through a protected area, famous for its mangrove forest and large bird population, among them the pink flamingo (please note that depending on the time of the year the flamingo population will be less or more present in the reserve, but nonetheless many other species are to be observed). The boat ride takes about 1½ hours. After the boat ride, you will visit the beach to enjoy some free time where you will be able to swim in the Gulf of Mexico (make sure you bring swimwear and towels). Then head back to the hotel and spend the remainder of the afternoon at leisure.

Please note: The best season for flamingo watching is from November to February, but the reserve is beautiful year-round.

Overnight: Hotel Colonial or similar, Merida

Meals included: Breakfast

Today make your way to the walled city of Campeche. On the way, visit the archaeological site of Uxmal, listed as a World Heritage Site. Its architecture is characterised by low horizontal palaces set around courtyards, decorated with a profusion of symbolic motifs and sculptures depicting the long-nosed rain god Chaac. Explore its magnificent buildings, including the House of the Magician, which dominates the site; the Nunnery, and the House of Turtles.

Before arriving in Campeche, you will also see the archaeological site of Edzna, or Itzana, “House of the Itza.” The story begins in the year 400 B.C., at which time a community settled in the Edzna Valley to give rise to the Itza lineage, being of Chontal roots. Other indications suggest that Edzna could also mean “House of the Echo” due to the acoustic phenomenon that occurs between some of the main buildings on the site, or “House of Gestures” for the stucco mask thought to exist in the crest of the tallest building in the area.

In the afternoon, you will arrive in Campeche, which was added to UNESCOs list of world heritage sites in 1999. Enjoy walking through the streets, with its pastel colour painted houses, strolling along the boardwalk or paying a visit to the market.

Overnight: Hotel Colonial Plaza or similar, Campeche

Meals included: Breakfast

Today you will visit one of Yucatan’s only working henequen (sisal) hacienda (farm) ‘Sotuta de Peon’ and hear about its history, dating back to the 18th century. During the tour of the hacienda, you will learn about the origins of henequen and details of Yucatan’s enormous henequen boom. You will see the whole transformation process of the henequen (sisal rope), from plant to fibre and from fibre to finished product, all done on centuries old machinery.

You will then experience travelling on wooden carts pulled by mules, originally used by henequen workers and take a ride into the henequen fields. At the end of the tour there will be the opportunity for a swim in the local cenote. After your swim you will be transferred to your hotel in Valladolid to spend the remainder of the day at leisure. Valladolid, the third largest city in Yucatan, was built over the ancient Maya ceremonial centre of Zaci. The city centre is on the Park Francisco Canton Road, which is where you will find the Church of San Gervasio. There are seven colonial churches and the city is nicknamed the “Sultan of the East” because of its colonial splendour.

Overnight: Hotel Meson de Marquez or similar, Valladolid

Meals included: Breakfast

After breakfast, journey to the iconic Riviera Maya coastline via the archaeological site of Coba, which is built around a group of lakes. Coba is one of the largest ancient Mayan cities, on the Yucatán Peninsula. The site is the nexus of the largest network of stone causeways of the ancient Mayan world and it contains many engraved and sculpted stelae that document ceremonial life and important events of the Late Classic Period (AD 600–900) of Mesoamerican civilisation.

Explore the mostly unrestored temples set deep in tropical jungle, and climb the Great Pyramid of Nohoch Mul, the tallest Mayan structure on the Yucatan Peninsula with a peak of 42m high, it boasts a remarkable view of Yucatán and non-public areas of Coba including both lagoons, ‘Macanxoc Lagoon to the east’ and ‘Cobá Lagoon to the southwest’.

Continue on towards Tulum, a pre-Columbian Mayan walled city situated on 12-meter (39 ft) tall cliffs along the east coast of the Yucatán Peninsula with the spectacular backdrop of the Caribbean Sea. Tulum was one of the last cities built and inhabited by the Maya; it was at its peak between the 13th and 15th centuries and managed to survive about 70 years after the Spanish began occupying Mexico. Old World diseases brought by the Spanish settlers appear to have resulted in very high fatalities, disrupting the society and eventually causing the city to be abandoned, nonetheless, it is to this day, one of the best-preserved coastal Maya sites.

Afterwards continue onwards to the resort town of Playa del Carmen where you will be transferred to the hotel for the next two nights.

Overnight: Hacienda Real Del Caribe or similar, Playa Del Carmen

Meals included: Breakfast

Enjoy today at leisure to either relax or explore this beautiful beach town.

Overnight: MSC Cruises ‘Opera’ Ship

Meals included: Breakfast;Dinner

When you disembark in Havana you will be immediately struck by the city’s sensuality. Its buildings have sinuous lines, and its colours and spiced aromas are intoxicating. The aroma of the city’s famous cigars floats through the air, beaches of sugary hues smoothly transition into transparent waters of the sea, music accompanies the captivating movements of the Caribbean dances, and cars from a different century create a moving exhibit in the streets of the city centre.

Located along the northwest coast of Jamaica, Montego Bay is one of the most important cities of the island, it is thought that Christopher Columbus anchored his ships here in 1494 when he ‘discovered’ Jamaica on his way from Cuba. He called the new country 'Santiago'. The lively city centre is dominated by Gloucester Avenue, the main street or ‘Hip Strip’, a popular bar area frequented by both tourists and locals.

After breakfast, you will disembark from the ship in the port of George Town, capital of the Cayman Islands.

TOUR GUIDE VS. TOUR LEADER
Tour Guide: 
Often locals with intimate knowledge of an area, its culture, and history. Their role entails providing commentary, routing the tour, and seeing that people have a good time. They are a licensed, qualified expert who supplies specific information on history, art, architecture and culture of the city/village/attraction in which he or she is guiding the tour. The guide meets the group at the required place and leaves the group at the end of the tour, they do not travel with the group. 
 
Tour Leader: 
An experienced person tasked with ensuring the smooth operation of tours, as well as providing practical support to passengers throughout the whole trip. Their role primarily includes assisting with accommodation, transportation between locations, and communication with tour guides in each stop. A tour leader may provide general guidance around a city or village, and offer information on the place visited on the bus, however they are not required to have specific knowledge on art, architecture, or history. They are not allowed to provide a guided tour or commentary of a city/village/attraction once there and if caught doing so, can be fined.
