Tour Itinerary

Day 1-2: Cancun

Let's hope the next installment of The Real Cancun isn't being filmed when we arrive (well, some of you might not mind). Either way this place is pretty crazy. It's tourist central but a good spot for us to meet up and hit the beach.

Day 3: Tulum - Chetumal

These are some impressive ruins. They're all crumbly and clinging to a cliff-top over a lovely beach.

Day 4-5: Caye Caulker

head into Belize and catch a boat to Caye Caulker. Free time to dive/snorkel in the second largest barrier reef in the world or swing in a hammock under a palm tree.

Day 6-7: Flores - Tikal Ruins

Time for our third country - Guatemala. Stop by the Mayan ruins at Tikal (think Mel Gibson's Apocalypto minus the violence), before arriving in Antigua.

Day 8-10: Antigua

This is a city that feels more like a little town, full of cobbled streets and boasting three massive volcanoes huffing and puffing white smoke all the time.

Tour Grade: Culture

Whether you’re taking in man’s greatest works at places like Petra or Angkor Wat, experiencing grand set-pieces like the Trans-Mongolian Railway or trying your hand at regional specialities like tango in Buenos Aires, getting to grips with local cultures is what travel’s all about. A few tips from a guide and a sense of adventure are pretty much all you need. So what are you waiting for? It’s time to get the lowdown on high Tibet among Lhasa’s magisterial temples; follow up Delhi’s eye-popping bustle with a fix of its fiery food; and mix manic markets and Incan masterpieces in Peru.
