This off-the-beaten-track adventure kicks off in Mexico City where you'll learn the area's pre-Colombian history and visit mysterious temples built by the Aztecs and Mayans. From here, fly to the Riviera Maya to ramble in the colonial streets of Valladolid, dine on fresh cuisine, and chill out on the Caribbean Sea. Expect private guides and transportation throughout (except for your free day in Tulum).
Best of Uxmal
Beyond the majesty of Mayan treasures, there’s much to discover in the region. Previous kimkim travelers have gained insight into age-old craft traditions still carried on today. During an artisan workshop led by a Mayan family, you can make a jícara (drinking gourd) carved with traditional iconography. Overnighting in the area gives you prime access to Uxmal, entering when it opens and without the crowds.
