Treasures of Central America: Heritage of the Aztec and Mayan Empires

18 days from £4,450pp
 

Private Journey

 

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 the 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 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: this vast Mayan site is one of the most impressive of its type on the continent; and on to Copán in Honduran, with its superlative intricate stonework.
