Mysteries of the Maya and Aztecs
Follow in the footsteps of the Aztecs, Zapotecs and Maya on an inspiring adventure through Mexico, Guatemala and Honduras from Mexico City to the Yucatan Peninsula
You cannot miss the impact of the Spanish conquistadors in Mexico. It can be seen in the ornate churches that crown the hillsides and plazas of Mexico’s cities and the whitewashed walls of surrounding haciendas as you tour through the country, providing a picturesque glimpse of the country’s past.
Substantial evidence of earlier inhabitants remain in the remarkable temples and pyramids at Palenque, which looming from the depths of the jungle provide an inspiring insight into the country’s rich history, while the calls of the jungle’s resident howler monkeys bring you back to the present day. Further afield in the Yucatan, most notably at Chichen Itza and Uxmal, you will find the impressive legacy of dozens of indigenous cultures. Mexico City itself, a vast sprawling metropolis, has much to interest visitors, including the central Zocalo with its dominating cathedral, the rewarding, instructive museums, city greenery at Chapultepec Park and the colourful floating gardens at Xochimilco.
