Treasures of the Yucatan

5 out of 5 stars
"The whole trip was expertly organised"
Cheryl , Jul 2014

Mexico's Mayan history and colonial cities are uncovered on this trip to its most famous and important Yucatán sites, like Chichén Itzá, Ek' Balam, Uxmal, Valladolid, Mérida and Campeche.

It's Insider moments like… making tortillas and other dishes with Don Miguel, in Mérida, who became a leading chef but keeps the traditions, ingredients and Yucatán recipes he learned in his family kitchen alive. It's also learning how locals turn their ‘green gold', henequen, into twine. And it's immersing yourself in history staying at Hacienda Uxmal.
