4 . Wild swimming, cocktail making and exploring Mayan ruins on Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula
If swimming in wild cenotes, making cocktails and exploring ancient Mayan ruins piques your interest, come along and join the fun on this nine-day TRIPS by Culture Trip tour of Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula. Yoga on the beach, a private catamaran cruise at sunset and a cooking class are all on the agenda, as well as visiting two of the area’s most impressive archaeological sites – the 1,500-year-old Chichen Itza pyramid and the Coba pyramid, which you can climb. There will be plenty of tequila and ice cold beers, but Pox, a corn-based Mexican liquor, is a must-try. Tulum, on the Caribbean coast, is a fitting final destination – renowned for its exuberant bars and clubs.
