“What a marvelous trip and experience I had in the Yucatan, the local guide was so wonderful! 
A great experience of education and excitement!”
- Jackie, Colorado
This luxurious, nine-day holiday provides the best-paced itinerary available to see the sun-drenched Yucatan peninsula’s spectacular ancient sites, traditional Maya villages, and colonial architecture.
  • A perfect short winter “escape,” you will leave on a Saturday and return the following Sunday.
  • There is just one departure available, accommodating no more than 16 participants plus your AIA lecturer/host and trip manager/guide.
  • See and learn about soaring ancient pyramids, distinctive temple complexes, and wonderful sculpture at world famous as well as off-the-beaten-path sites. 
  • Enjoy free time to bird watch, shop for crafts, or relax at our luxurious accommodations: two nights at the Mayaland Hotel (next to Chichén Itza), three at the Hacienda Uxmal (next to Uxmal) and three at Merida’s Presidente InterContinental Villa Mercedes.
  • There are no hidden costs—practically everything is included, except one dinner and your international airfare.
  • Every aspect has been carefully planned to maximize your time and experiences.
