Overview & Highlights

A comprehensive holiday for history lovers. Mesoamerica has a huge number of archaeological sites and monuments. From Mexico City move on to colonial and indigenous Oaxaca and the Yucatán Mayan jungle pyramids. Over the border to Mayan Copán (Honduras), and Tikal (Guatemala).

  • Mexico City: Guided tour of Tula and Tepotzotlán
  • Mexico City: Full day guided city tour and excursion to Teotihuacan pyramids
  • Guided visits to Puebla, Cholula and Tlaxcala
  • Oaxaca: Guided excursion to the ruins of ancient city Monte Albán
  • Oaxaca: Guided tour of Mitla and El Tule
  • Mérida: Guided excursion to Chichén Itzá
  • Mérida: Guided tour of Uxmal and Kabah
  • Palenque: Guided tour of the archaeological site
  • Guided excursion to Bonampak and Yaxchilán
  • Tikal: Guided tour of the ruins
  • Copán Ruinas: Guided tour of the Copán Mayan site

Travel from the pre-Aztec ruins of cities and temples around multi-layered Mexico City –where you will appreciate the Spanish colonial legacy in all its glory – to ancient Aztec pyramids, as well as Mayan temples and fortresses in the mountains around Oaxaca. Go on to explore the evocative ancient monuments, testimony to bygone Mayan empires, which lay hidden and silent for centuries amid the deep valleys and jungles of the Yucatán Peninsula.

Mexico is one of Latin America’s most vibrant and culturally rich destinations, with a huge diversity of historical, cultural and natural attractions. Its archaeological richness is second to none. Most of the sites, including Aztec pyramids and Mayan Aztec temples are easily accessible, but many still have a feeling of remoteness; evoking the atmosphere of bygone times.

Cross the border into the jungles of northern Guatemala to explore Tikal which was named a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1979: this vast Mayan site is one of the most impressive of its type on the continent, with iconic ruins of temples and pyramids; and on to Copán in Honduras, an ancient Mayan city, with its superlative intricate stonework.
