Further trip information

Day 1: Merida. Are you ready for the time of your life? There are no activities planned today apart from a meeting with your group to get the low-down on the epic adventures we’ve got in store.

Day 2: Merida. Today we’re heading to a cenote for a dip. Cenotes are underground sinkholes unique to the Yucatan. Filled with crystal-clear freshwater, it’s a magical way to escape the heat. Spend the afternoon exploring Merida before hitting the tequilas with your new friends!

Day 3: Merida to Rio Lagartos. After a free morning in Merida, travel to the seaside town of Rio Lagartos. You’ll want your camera for today’s excursion to the Insta-famous bright pink lakes of Las Coloradas – seeing is believing! Look out for the biggest flock of flamingos in Mexico too!

Day 4: Rio Lagartos to Tulum. Continue to lively Tulum where we’ll visit the famous Mayan Ruins, perched on a clifftop above a picture-postcard beach. After, cool off in the turquoise sea, before getting ready to go out - Tulum’s nightlife is legendary!

Day 5: Tulum. Enjoy a free day in Tulum. Visit one of the nearby cenotes, take a day trip to Chichen Itza, or just catch some rays on the aptly named Paradise Beach. Tonight, hit up some beach bars for a few cheeky margaritas with your mates.

Day 6: Tulum to Playa Del Carmen. Our final stop is Playa Del Carmen. With an impressive array of dazzling beaches, spend the day topping up your tan and cooling off in the surf. Tonight, we’ll enjoy a farewell dinner at an authentic community restaurant - this is real Mexico.

Day 7: Playa Del Carmen. It’s the last day of your amazing Mexican adventure, so pack your bags, say your goodbyes and leave whenever you’re ready.

Arrival information

Arrive into Manuel Cresencio Rejon International Airport (MID). The Airport is just over 6km from our start point in Merida. If you’ve arranged for an arrival transfer, one of our friendly greeters will be at the airport to meet you. If you’ve decided to make your own way to the starting accommodation, jump in a taxi for the short journey. Day 1 is arrival day, and no activities have been planned other than your welcome meeting in the evening, so you can arrive at any time. At the welcome meeting you’ll get to know the rest of your group and learn all about the adventures we’ve got in store for you! A welcome note will be left for you in the hotel, telling you when and where the meeting will take place. If you arrive later than the evening meeting time, no probs. You can see everybody the next morning.

This trip ends in Playa Del Carmen. You’ll need to leave from Cancun International Airport (CUN). Taxi transfers from Playa Del Carmen take around 50 minutes. Your guide can help you arrange this for you if you like.

Accommodation & meals


You’ll have 6 nights in simple hostels or hotels throughout the trip. We’ve chosen a unique range of accommodation to give a real Mexican flavour to your trip! Some nights we use multi-share accommodation (4 – 6 people per room), which is always on a single-sex basis.


6 breakfasts and 1 dinner are included on this trip. This allows you maximum flexibility to decide where and when to eat. Our groups usually eat together as it’s always more fun to share the experience, but there’s no obligation to do so.

Minimum age & eligibility

Travellers must be 18 to join this trip. This trip is designed for travelers aged between 18-39.

UK passport holders don’t need a visa to enter Mexico, but you’ll need to complete an immigration form and have this with you when you enter and leave the country. You can either get one when you arrive or in advance online. The advance option is only available if you have at least 6 months remaining on your passport from point of entry to Mexico. Otherwise, your passport only needs to be valid for the proposed duration of your stay in Mexico.
