Spring 2016: Contemporary and Ancient Maya in the Yucatan REGISTRATION CLOSED


Six million Maya live today in Mexico, Guatemala, and Belize, in both urban and rural settings.  Since Frederick Catherwood and John Lloyd Stephens explored the Yucatan peninsula in the mid-eighteenth century, archaeologists, spiritual seekers, and tourists have traveled the region to learn more about this longstanding civilization.

Led by extraordinary guides Benito Gritzewsky and Julia Miller, we will visit well-known and more obscure Maya archaeological sites and colonial architecture.  In addition, we will learn about efforts to draw attention to contemporary Maya life as exemplified by the Hacienda Ochil, James Turrell’s Aqua de Luz pyramid, and the Gran Museo del Mundo Maya, all of which opened in 2012.  Rest assured, our travels will be accompanied by outstanding regional cuisine.

We will fly from Houston to Cancun on Saturday, February 27, and return from Merida. Our trip will have a four-night and a seven-night option. Travelers should be prepared for extensive walking, sometimes over rough ground.  This itinerary subject to serendipitous changes.

Space is limited. To register, please download and send in: 1) the registration and 2) release of claims form along with 3) your deposit, which you may pay online here or via phone or mail.
