This 14-day tropical adventure provides the best-paced itinerary available to thoroughly explore ancient Maya sites in the lush jungles of Mexico, Guatemala, and Honduras. Learn with Dr. Tokovinine and expert guides about Maya art and architecture: enormous stelae (carved monoliths), painted frescoes, stucco friezes, carved lintels, and huge temple-pyramids that soar above the rainforest. We take our time to explore seven fabulous sites (four are World Heritage sites) and have free time to go bird watching or simply relax, reflect, and enjoy our comfortable hotels and remote jungle lodges. No other itinerary provides three nights each at Tikal and Copán. Join us!
