The Riviera Maya is just one little part of the peninsula of Yucatan. The more we dive into the Yucatan jungle the more we submerge in the Mayan world. All through Yucatan we can find uncountable secret cenotes out of the beaten path, we get to discover the mayan cultures and magic from a complete different experience. We offer day trips to Yucatan but most recommended are our multi-day trips where you can spend a weekends discovering unique cenotes, mayan ruins and local culture.

ABOUT THE YUCATAN

Merida is the capital and largest city in Yucatan State. This city treasures a rich colonial and Mayan heritage. The downtown zone is the square called Plaza de la Independencia where the cathedral of Mérida and the limestone church of the Third Order are (both from the colonial era). There, you can also see La Casa de Montejo, which is an emblem of colonial Plateresque architecture.

Close to the historic center there’s a boulevard full of restaurants, clubs and hotels located in 19th-century mansions. The local cuisine of the city stands out especially for the pre-Columbian spices, including annatto.
