SHORTLIST

Yucatan Adventure: Merida, Tulum & Jungle Swims

Mexico's Yucatán peninsula is way more than just the Mayan Riviera — and, dang it, this epic six-day adventure is going to prove it. Staying in the world’s best hostels as you go (we’re biased, but whatever), get ready for a tour that’s seriously non-stop fun and sun. Hit up a number of different cenotes and cool off in the crystal-clear waters of these natural jungle sinkholes. Wander the ruins of Chichen Itzá before having the most amazing meal ever: a delicious Yucatecan dinner inside a cenote! Then, wrap up your tour in Tulum with white sand, turquoise waters, and beach bars galore.

Itinerary Open all
Day 1 - Mérida
Arrive at any time, and kick back at the hostel or head out to explore the city before meeting up with fellow Roamies in the evening. Later on, head to one of the many bars and restaurants near the hostel for some eats and make sure to check out the main plaza at night.
Day 2 - Mérida
Ok, so every day on this trip is amazing but we'll venture to say that this one is ridiculous. You'll explore some of the many cenotes in the area, giant sinkholes in the earth formed by underground freshwater rivers. Hop on a bike to cycle between a few of them and swim in the crystal-clear waters to take a break from the heat. After a yummy lunch, return to Mérida and spend the rest of the day wandering the city or relaxing in a hammock at the hostel. Sound about right?
Day 3 - Mérida/Valladolid
Ready for another epic day? Keep your sunscreen and the camera handy today as you'll be checking a major bucket item off of your list. Head into the jungle to the massive Mayan ruins of Chichen Itzá for a guided tour and time to walk around on your own. Then continue to Valladolid to drop off your stuff at the hostel and chill for a bit before heading out for dinner, where you’ll learn about the Mayas and have a chance to devour a spread of delicious Yucatan dishes cooked over the fire, like pollo pibil and tamales with fresh handmade tortillas.
Day 4 - Valladolid/Tulum
Pile into the bus and head to the white sand and turquoise waters of the Mayan Riviera. But before you hit the beach we have more ruins to see - Tulum! The only of the Mayan temples to be built right next to the ocean, you will be filling your feed with jaw-dropping photos in no time. Spend the rest of the day on the beach, hanging out at the hostel or at one of the many bars and cafes in town.
Day 5 - Tulum
The beach at Tulum is pretty stellar that's for sure, and today is yours to do with it what you want. Feeling active and want to explore more? Go snorkelling at the natural waterpark of Xel-Há or visit some more cenotes. Feeling the ocean vibes instead? Stay local and hit the beach before shoring up at the hostel bar for a cold beverage. After dinner head to one of the beach clubs to dance the night away under the stars.
Day 6 - Tulum
Say goodbye to your Roamies and depart at any time, or keep the adventure going by continuing to Cancún on the next leg of this epic journey.
