WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT?
Tours are led by distinguished scholars in the field of Maya archaeology, not local guides with only memorized
facts about specific ruins.
tour packages include information packets and multi-media
presentations that explain the latest theories of ancient Maya history and culture
Groups get not one but multiple guides during the tour. Participants are therefore exposed to the perspective
of a variety of scholars, each of whom specializes in different aspects of Maya archaeology.
Let us sweat the details. From the moment you arrive in the Mundo Maya to the moment you depart, Maya
Exploration Center handles the details. With comfortable, private transportation, first class hotel accommodations,
great restaurants and catered meals all pre-arranged, MEC
details so you don't have to.
Smart Itineraries. Don't see Mesoamerica from the window of a moving bus. Maya Exploration Center works hard to build itineraries
that maximize your time "on the ground" not in a bus.
Maya Exploration Center research is funded in large part through the fees collected from tours and study
abroad programs. Thus, participants not only contribute to our continuing archaeological research, but a
portion of the tour fee qualifies as a tax deductible contribution
. When you purchase a tour you will
receive a receipt acknowledging your tax deductible gift to MEC
