Join us in Mexico as we explore colonial cities, exotic jungles and traditional Indian villages. From the uplands of Oaxaca to the rainforests of Guatemala and Yucatan we uncover ancient ruins of lost civilisations. We visit the complex of pyramids, terraces and rock carvings of Monte Alban and discover the ruins of ancient temples deep in the jungles of Palenque. We also explore the Mayan metropolis of Tikal and visit the well-preserved murals at Bonampak. Along the way we sail through the vast Sumidero Canyon and explore the colonial town of San Cristobal. We end the trip on the tropical Island of Caye Caulker: we explore the ruins of Tulum and Uxmal and visit the pyramids and temples of Chichen Itza. We also spend time relaxing on the sandy beaches and snorkelling in the clear waters off the Caribbean coast.
