Mayan Encounter tour
Admit it - you've always dreamed of being Indiana Jones. Well, with Alltournative's Mayan Encounter, for one day you, too, can be a thrill-seeking explorer climbing ancient pyramids, zip-lining across the jungle, rappelling into and swimming in sacred cenotes, and paddling a canoe through a lovely lagoon.
Your day begins by touring the ancient Mayan city of Cobá, tucked away in the verdant jungle for centuries. Climb Nohoch Mul pyramid, the tallest Mayan structure on the Yucatán peninsula, and witness the breathtaking splendor of the surrounding jungle.
You'll spend the second part of the day in the Mayan village of Pac Chen, where you'll be treated to a delicious, homemade traditional lunch prepared with care by your Mayan hosts. You'll head out in the jungle around Pac Chen where you'll zip-line over one cenote, rappel into another cenote, and swim in the fresh water sacred to the Maya. There's also time for a canoe trip on the neighboring lagoon.
Spending time in the jungle with Mayan people who live in very much the same manner as their ancient ancestors did, you will enjoy an adventure like you've never before experienced .
