Overview & Highlights

This short break delivers the two big attractions of the Yucatán Peninsula in a nutshell: the impossibly grand, Mayan city Chichén Itzá  and the white-sand Caribbean beaches of the Mayan Riviera.

  • Visit Chichén Itzá ruins – New Seven Wonders of the World
  • Full day excursion to historic haciendas and cenotes
  • Guided tour of Mérida

This holiday of just over a week takes you to the relatively flat, tropical Yucatán Peninsula in the sunny south east coast of the country. Inland, among the jungles, scrub and farmland, sitting alongside charming Spanish colonial towns and villages, is Chichén Itzá, the greatest archaeological achievement of the Mayan Empire.

You’ll explore the ruins on a guided tour. You’ll also discover Mérida, the Yucatán’s colonial capital infused with Mayan culture, and visit historic haciendas (country estates) before heading to the beach for a couple of days relaxing or indulging in water sports or the lively nightlife at family-friendly Playa del Carmen, where there’s a huge range of excursions on offer from visits to other Mayan sites to scuba-diving.
