Backroads of the Yucatan

Backroads of the Yucatan Overview

Journey the backroads to discover seldom visited corners of the Yucatan. History unfolds in the colonial splendour of the cities and the half-forgotten pyramids of ancient civilisations.

Journey the back roads to discover the Yucatan's seldom visited side. Discover colonial cities, half-forgotten pyramids and coastal habitats for birds. Stay three nights in a traditional hacienda, full of colonial charm and compare lesser-known Mayan ruins with the famed Puuc style ruins at Uxmal. Watch pink flamingos and exotic bird life at the coastal Celestun Nature Reserve. Avoid the midday sun and day-trippers at the Mayan ruins of Chichen Itza and admire the cliff-top ruins of Tulum, perched over an idyllic beach.
