A Mayan Adventure

This incredible part of Mexico is filled with not only ancient Mayan Ruins, but also ancient Natural Geological forces under the earth that have created an underground river system feeding the most breathtaking, each uniquely different, bodies of water.  These treasures dot the entire Yucatan Peninsula and we will explore many virtually private Cenotes with our local guide. Combine this adventure with eco conscious experiences where we get close and personal in the ocean when snorkeling with Whale Sharks; the gentle giant of the sea and swimming with Turtles in the protected Akumal Bay. We spend time in Historical Valladolid where we celebrate in a classic Mexican Square and will explore from here, Chichen Itza with a well sought after informative and fun guide. On our way back to the coast we stop at the ancient Mayan city of Coba before spending time on the Pacific Side with more incredible cenote visits that never gets old, delicious seafood and opportunities for spa, yoga or fishing all along the way. Come #fallinlovewiththeworld on Our First Crush tour ‘A Mayan Adventure’.

Why We Go Local

Our Experience Going Local

We spend weeks in each location to design our itineraries with amazing hidden gems and experiences rich in culture. By personally scouting our tours, we ensure to deliver experiences you may never have found on your own. We not only make connections along the way, we make friends and hand select our guides for their knowledge, guest interaction, and find the fun mentality. Instead of planning a tour behind a computer desk, we go live it by going local and taking the roads less travelled. We connect with our local guides that help us reach people in places where we can be of service. We’ve woven into many of our trips the opportunity to give back. Travel with us and discover a region through its people, culture and food while treading lightly on Gorgeous Lands.
