Overnight: Rosewood Mayakoba


Day 2: Tulum archeological site and Rio Secreto private expedition

Head to the Tulum archeological site, the only ancient Maya city located right by the Caribbean Sea.

An expert guide will lead an exploration of this small but beautiful site, which was once an important place of trade in jade and turquoise. Learn all about ancient Maya culture, history, and cosmology.

After, continue the family adventure with a private adventure of Rio Secreto, a surreal underground river full of beautiful stalactites and stalagmites.

Day 3: Unique Adventure to the Sian Kaán Biosphere Reserve

Journey to one of Mexico’s most important protected areas, the Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve, which is made of a large water system, marshes and mangroves, and tropical forest.

Thousands of years ago, the exceptional natural beauty along this stretch of coastline was so revered by the Mayans, that they named it Sian Ka´an, or, “The Place where Heaven Begins”. Today, Sian Ka´an is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of Mexico´s largest protected areas, with 528,148 hectares of intricately linked marine, coastal and terrestrial ecosystems.

You’ll be picked up from your hotel by a private driver and driven to the entrance of the natural reserve to begin your guided visit.

With your private guide, embark on an adventure into the northern reaches of the Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve, and learn all about its unique and diverse ecosystem. With easier access and closer proximity, the north of the reserve is perfect for a day of discovery, while the south is practically unreachable by land or sea to keep it completely protected and untouched.

Experience manmade canals carved by the Mayan civilization, along with various temples used to control the once-busy commercial trade routes, that connected mighty Mayan cities like Cobá and Muyil. Keep an eye out for incredible wildlife encounters with the likes of mighty ospreys, stealthy crocodiles and gentle manatees. Bird enthusiasts may like to bring their binoculars!

There will also be time to enjoy a short hike through the jungle for an up-close look at the remains of a Mayan temple. Afterward, refresh yourself with a float along the ‘lazy river’, a 900-meter-long, fresh-water channel through a magical wetland world. Before being driven back to your hotel, enjoy a traditional seafood lunch at a local restaurant and some free time to relax on the beach.

Suggested: Dining experience at Agave Azul

Housing more than 100 labels of premium tequilas, Agave Azul hosts delightful weekly tastings. The resident tequila master shares the art of making and appreciating the “drink of the gods” while guests sample a selection of the finest labels. With fine sushi and Asian-inspired entrees, this relaxing setting is one of the best in the Riviera Maya.

Located near the reception area and over the tranquil lagoon, guests are treated to sweeping views of the lush mangroves and the main pool, making Agave Azul the ultimate choice for pre-dinner cocktails, appetizers, or even a light dinner. (Cost not included and needs to be booked directly with the resort. The hotel’s babysitting service can be arranged for one-to-one care. Cost not included).

Upon arrival, head to the famed archeological site of Uxmal for a privately guided visit. Also, enjoy a fun family scavenger hunt, searching for a variety of clues that will draw on everything learned about the magical region so far.

Following the hunt, enjoy a lunch featuring the Yucatan’s unique and tasty cuisine before returning to Merida for a brief visit to the historic center and the famous Montejo Avenue, which was modeled on the Champs Elysee of Paris.
