To Rio Carnival or Yutacan Highlight?

24 Sep 2012 Jessicam876 asked


I've booked the South American Explorer tour from Januray 18th to February 5th and am unsure if I should stay in Rio for Carnival or see Mexico and Cancun adding on a Yutacan highlights tour? Any advice?

    Hey! I would go for Rio for Carnival.
    If you’re doing a Mexico tour, you’re definitely better doing the Grande! Yucatan Highlights is the second part of the Mexico Grande – I just came off that and it was AMAZING but a lot of the Yucatan Highlights group felt their part wasn’t long enough and that they didn’t bond as well with those that had been there from the start. But it could’ve just been my group :)
