These ancient ruins are the most famous and best preserved of their kind in Mayan history. These iconic ruins are one of the big ticks of this country, and a true sight to behold. With our Local Guide leading the charge, Chichen Itza will provoke questions about the Mayan calendar, the positioning of the sun, the connections of the ruins around the country, and the worlds that came before us - a truly special spot on the trip and a history buff's delight. With more knowledge than you can handle, it's time for a change of scene, and a dip in an Instagram worthy cenote. These underground lakes or waterholes are are refreshing, lush, foliage covered and a much needed break from the sunshine.
Cancun
In stark contrast, next up is Mexico’s super resort – Cancun. With high energy party vibes oozing from its pores, this stop is a no brainer when it comes to getting involved in the nightlife. One suggestion for tonight is dinner at the Mercado 28, a busy market serving true Mexican delights before heading out to get your P-A-R-T-Y on.
DAY 10 - Cancun
Cancun
Just incase you don’t know the drill by now, an ice cold cerveza should remind you that Cancun is a hub of wonderful entertainment. Feel like taking things further afield? A day trip to Playa del Carmen could be just the ticket. White sand beaches, snorkelling, colourful cafes lining the streets and classic locals and shopping will see you living the good life and playing local in paradise. The legendary nightlife will certainly whip up yet another storm of dancing and live music back in Cancun tonight, so go on, get out there tonight and hit the dancefloor with the squad. Your Trip Manager knows this party like the back of their hand, your guarantee to be the know on all the best spots to head.
DAY 11 - Cancun
Cancun
Fun is the name of the game today in this stunning white sand beach spot. Thrillseekers could take a trip to some hidden waters deep in the tropical jungle. A bit of rural island hopping, zipling a stint at Garrafon Natural Reef Park, a visit to some ancient Mayan ruins and finally some more swimming is all on offer. Explore the offshore coral reefs and caves while the sunshine ripples through the crystal clear water. Then back to Cancun where seafood by the seashore is on the menu for a fabulous open-air sunset dinner with the crew.

Had the best time experiencing all different parts of Mexico from Puerto Vallarta to Cancun, and everything in between. Only slight negative was the included dinners - there were so many food options everywhere we went which were better than the included places, plus alcohol should be included. That's the only small con, and didn't impact the trip at all - you still MUST go and experience all Mexico has to offer! And if you're lucky enough, you'll get Ish as your tour manager!

Locations were great! Hotels were average considering the price we paid. Too much time was spent in Cancun. 3 days included "apart of the tour" but there was not a single thing planned within the tour for those days. Would have preferred to spend that time in one of the smaller towns that were harder to travel to solo. Recommendations of the guide were outdated and usually not worth it.

I've rated this a 4 star. Only because I wasn't a big fan of other people joining our tour along the way. It made it a little awkward and confronting for the new people..especially when you're joining a group that has already formed great friendships and have been partying together for a week already. Some fitted in well and others felt left out.
