Jungle Kingdoms of the Ancient Maya (land tour)

Dates: Saturday, January 27, 2018 to Friday, February 9, 2018 (14 days)
Tour Leader: Jeff Karl Kowalski

Aerial view of Palenque at the western edge of the rainforest

Limited to just 12 participants, this tropical adventure provides the best-paced itinerary available to thoroughly explore ancient Maya sites in the lush jungles of Mexico, Guatemala, and Honduras. Maya art and architecture will “come alive” as you encounter enormous stelae (carved monoliths), painted frescoes, stucco friezes, carved lintels, and huge temple-pyramids that soar above the rainforest. Explore, in-depth, the sites of Palenque, Bonampak, Yaxchilan, Tikal, Yaxha, Copan, and Quirigua (four are UNESCO World Heritage sites); with free time to go bird watching or simply relax, reflect, and enjoy our comfortable hotels and remote jungle lodges. No other itinerary provides three nights each at Tikal and Copan.


Pricing:
$8,345 (10-12 participants) per person double occupancy
$8,845 (7-9 participants) per person double occupancy
$1,095 single supplement
