This 11-day luxury holiday provides the best-paced itinerary available to see the sun-drenched Yucatan peninsula’s ancient sites, traditional Maya villages, and colonial architecture. Learn with Prof. Kowalski and an expert guide about Maya art and architecture, visiting two World Heritage sites and several off-the-beaten path sites with soaring pyramids, distinctive temple complexes, and wonderful sculpture. There is free time to bird watch, shop for crafts, or simply relax, reflect, and enjoy our excellent accommodations. We begin with two nights at a luxurious resort on a private beach in Cancun; then enjoy three nights each at the Mayaland Hotel (next to Chichen Itza) and at the Hacienda Uxmal. We end with two nights at the luxurious Presidente InterContinental in Merida.
