Hola! Mexico May 2014

My first Contiki and it was amazing! Would recommend this tour to everyone! Our tour guide Ish, was not only knowledgable but looked after us all so well. The days were full of adventures and then the nights were made to party. And party we did!! Our group was such a mix of personalities but that's what made it amazing! Being one of the oldest in the group made me realise that Contiki really is for everyone. You make it what you want it to be. If you like adventure (zip lining, snorkelling), culture (ruins, arts), party (clubs, restaurants where you dance on tables)...then Yucatan is for you! You will not regret it. But it's actually the people that make travelling the best. All you have to do is say Hola! and then it snowballs from there. Highly recommend Contiki no matter what age you are...just make sure you are ready to party!

My Contiki was: Fantastic-Amazing-Fun!

If you want to tan,party and see a little culture this trip is for you

This was my third Contiki and probably my least favorite trip. But that's not Contiki's fault. I joined a tour group that had already bonded and weren't really receptive to us newbies. Also a bunch of people had money stolen on the first day. Which certainly put a damper on the trip. Additionally I don't think six days is enough to see a country. If I could do it again I would save a little more money and do the Mexico Grande. The main portion of this trip is spent in Cancun, which is a highly Americanized tourist area. It didn't feel like I was in Mexico. It was like being in Las Vegas or Atlantic City. I didn't like that. But the beaches are fantastic. The Contiki hotel is right on the beach and has a pool which is fabulous. I also loved Mexico City, Merida and Playa Del Carmen. They felt less touristy. I really enjoyed all of the cultural excursions like visiting the pyramids of Teotihuacan, Chicen Itza and Tulum. I also enjoyed the boat tour of the floating markets in Mexico city, the horse carriage ride in Merida and the Mayan Jungle Excursion in Cancun. The hotels were all very nice. Each had queen size beds, showers, wifi and free breakfasts. My favorite hotel was the Holiday Inn Arenas in Cancun. The pool and beach were fantastic! The night life in Cancun was insane. If you like to party this is the place to be. You can drink from sunrise to sunrise if you want to. Contiki does it's best to encourage this with free tequila shots almost everywhere. However you must remember to budget for these outings. In Cancun most bars don't have just a entry fee and cash bar. You have to pay a one time fee for open bar. We went to Mandala ($65USD), CocoBongo ($80USD) and a New Year's Beach Party ($54USD). These places were wild and must sees. The Contiki included meals were for the most part sub-par. They mostly include buffets. The meal in Merida was the best by far. We were able to sample a ton of local dishes like Lime Soup, Mole and more. Our tour manager Abe was great. He did his best to handle the crappy stolen money situation early on, as well as helping people who got sick. He also worked his magic and got us some great discounts on club entry. Plus he was knowledgable and friendly. If you want a really in depth cultural experience I would not recommend this tour. If you want a high energy glimpse at Mexico mixed with a ton of partying and sun bathing then The Yucatan Highlights tour is for you.

Awesome :)

The accommodation was great all around! only in Cancun we had to share a king size or double bed with a random person from the tour, so that was a bit akward. But otherwise the other hotels were great The optionals were fantastic too, I swam with dolphines :D and the tour is exactly as described, Cancun was the most fun part as we went out to various clubs and places to eat dinner. Senor Frogs was my fav! The transport and the tour guide were great too! Met some fantastic people! I would definatly reccommend it! The site seeing was spectacular!

Viva Mexico!!!

You join the Mexico Grande Tour in Mexico City and embark on a wonderful adventure for 6 glorious days. It is non-stop fun, very nicely organized. The food, the included activities, the down-time, the amazing TM, everything was great! I was worried at first, joining a group, but they welcomed us with open arms and we all became a big, happy familia! Our Tour Manager, Ismael, was perfect. He had a lot of historical knowledge, local history and fantastic time management skills. Made us feel like we were getting the best of the best. The hotel in Mexico City was a bit sketchy, and I wasn't a fan of having to switch rooms in the middle of the day, but the other locations and hotels made up for it. The longest time we spent on the bus was 3 hours. Again, a fantastic trip! If you do this trip, go for the optional activities and the nightlife Ish will set up for you, you will have the time of your life!

Amazing

Amazing time. Excellent mix of free time and planned activities. Time for cultural things like the Teotihuacan and Chichen Itza ruins, museums, unwinding on the beach and crazy nights in Cnacun. Ish was a wonderful guide with heaps of local knowledge. Best.

Amazing Mexico

This was my first contiki, I think it was a great introduction to contiki. Out tour manager was amazing, fun and very knowledgeable. I met so many great amazing people and the itinerary worked well and flowed. We had just the right amount of free time and the optionals were great. Just one thing that I was unaware of, this tour you are joining an existing tour, the group had been together for a week. But this wasn't too much trouble though, our tour manager managed to integrate us well with the existing group. This was worth every penny, had a great time.
