Day 1
Welcome to the Yucatan Peninsula

Our trip begins from Cancun International Airport. Our guides will be waiting for you at the airport. The adventure will begin immediately as we travel down the coast towards the beachside town of Akumal. Along the way, we will head off the beaten path to explore hidden Mayan ruins tucked away in the jungle. Unleash your inner Indiana Jones and explore the secrets of the Mayan civilization. Before you leave, be sure to climb the dizzying staircases of the main pyramid to get sweeping views of the jungle. On our way back, stop at the famous coastal ruins of Tulum, which are perched on a cliffside, high above the turquoise waters of the Caribbean. You can choose to relax or explore the town before our first group dinner and orientation for the week ahead!

I had a great time and would highly recommend the Springs trip to others. It was a great group of people, good food, fun and educational. Cody and Allain are knowledgeable and ensured that we all felt comfortable and had a great experience.
