Overview & Pricing

This trip will take you on a historic journey into pre-columbian and colonial Mexico. Learn about the splendor of the Mayan civilization, the Spanish Conquest and life during the Colonial period. Our journey begins in the historic city of Veracruz, the point where Hernan Cortes began his expedition and the Conquest of Mexico. From there, we travel to the walled city of Campeche, a colonial jewel; its history speaks of the fusion of the Maya and Spanish, colonial wealth and pirate legends. Declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1999, the city of Campeche is an example of Baroque colonial architecture with defensive walls surrounding its historic center. In Campeche we will visit the remarkable ancient Mayan city of Edzna. Next, we fly to Palenque, considered one of the most beautiful Mayan cities, set on the lush foothills of the Sierra Madre mountains of Chiapas. This pre-hispanic Mayan city and its lush tropical surroundings were also listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1987. This is a Mayan-Colonial adventure like no other!
