Jungle Kingdoms of the Ancient Maya (land tour)

Dates:

Saturday, January 28, 2017 to Friday, February 10, 2017
(14 days)
Tour Leader: Virginia Miller

Aerial view of Palenque at the western edge of the rainforest

Limited to just 16 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.
