Mexico: Tulum: Cultural and Beach Adventure
Enjoy privately guided tours of World Heritage Chichen Itza, beachfront Tulum and lesser-known Coba Mayan archaeological sites as well as spend some time underwater and underground in one of the spectacular cenotes unique to the region.
Upon arrival in the Riviera Maya gateway Cancún, enjoy a private transfer to your home for the next five nights.
This morning is free to enjoy on your own after a relaxing breakfast.
After lunch, explore fantastic regional geology and cool off undergoud at Rio Secreto. At this surreal park near Playa del Carmen, you can observe natural history dating back millions of years as you hike and swim through a 600-meter route full of beautiful stalactites and stalagmites on this private tour. Go deep inside an underground cave, where you’ll experience true silence among some of the most dramatic mineral formations in the world.
Today after breakfast you will be met by your private guide and driver and taken to explore Chichen Itza. Chichen Itza is an impressive archaeological site located to the southeast of Merida, Yucatan’s capital city. During its golden years, Chichen Itza was the most important political, economic and religious center for the Mayan civilization. Although, unlike most of the existing archaeological sites nowadays, it lacks the intense colored pigments the Mayans used to decorate their temples, markets and ball courts, Chichen Itza continues to impress national and foreign travelers with its architectonic beauty.
After your day of exploration you will be taken back to your hotel to relax and enjoy the rest of your day. We will provide you with restaurant options for dinner.
Today you will be taken privately to visit the exciting Mayan ruins of Tulum and Coba.
In the ancient times, the Mayan developed a holy inner city that ascended high above the majestic cristal blue seaside of the Caribbean and was protected by 3 enormous walls and a steep cliff. This walled abode was given the honorary name of Tulum, the walled Mayan city.
Coba’s urban sprawl covered during its hey day (750 AD) a total area of about 40 square miles and is one of the Maya cities built in the Peten style characteristic of the late Classic period. The city is formed by a group of 5 clusters of buildings or complexes with a web of roads and causeways that interconnected them and facilitated exchange of goods and services with the rest of the Yucatan Peninsula.
After your visit you will be taken back to your hotel to relax or if you like we can organize an afternoon activity either out in the water or inland.
Today is yours to explore Tulum or neighboring Playa del Carmen or simply relax by the pool and beach. If you would like we can organize additional activities to enjoy.
Following a breakfast at leisure you will be met and taken to the airport or the next leg of your Willing Foot adventure.
This is just the beginning.
