Vacation Overview

Home to one of the world’s most sophisticated ancient cultures, Mexico’s Yucatán offers fascinating archaeological sites and interesting colonial cities. On this Yucatán tour, you’ll explore many of these archaeological ruins and discover its fun cities with overnights in Cancun, Uxmal, Campeche, Mérida, and Chichen Itza.

In ancient times, the Maya built complex cities, developed an accurate calendar, aligned their buildings for astronomical purposes, and learned to effectively farm. On this Yucatán tour, you’ll learn about this intriguing culture and visit some of its greatest ruins. Stay at the renowned Hotel Mayaland steps away from Chichen Itza and explore this UNESCO World Heritage Site built by the Maya between 600 and 900 AD. Here, visit the Ball Court, site of sacrifices; El Castillo, a pyramid dedicated to the high priest; and Cenote Sagrado, a sacred underwater sinkhole used for sacrifices to the gods. You’ll also explore Ek’ Balam, at the height of its importance from 600-900 AD, and Uxmal, one of the Maya’s ancient masterpieces and today a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

On this tour through Mexico’s Yucatán, you’ll also explore the colonial cities of Valladolid, with its charming streets and interesting churches; Mérida, where you’ll stay in a former colonial mansion; and the coastal town of Campeche, a UNESCO World Heritage Site with baroque Spanish architecture. Enjoy some out-of-the-ordinary experiences offered by Globus, including a visit to a Panama hat maker in Bécal and a cooking demonstration in Uxmal.

From the fun experiences to the fascinating sites, this Yucatán tour is a perfect vacation!
