- The trip was great. Our guide Ana was fantastic, really knowledgeable, enthusiastic and helpful. Several days were spent travelling on the minibus, but given the distances to cover it wasn't unexpected. The first 2 days in Antigua were a bit of a waste - one day would have been enough. Tip - dont do the market trip from Antigua to Chichicastenango - it's a waste of money. An entire day waiting at the airport at the end of the trip was unacceptable - and based on the flight times of others. The hotels were mostly good, although not always the ones detailed in the final itinerary. Highlight for me was Uxmal - I'd never heard of it before and it was fabulous.

Many thanks for your feedback Elizabeth. I’m really surprised to hear your feedback about Antigua, as it usually gets very good reviews and is often the highlight of an itinerary, including the optional visit to Chichicastenango. We will certainly review flight times though and try to ensure that we have people leaving as close together as possible. Although this sometimes depends on availability, we ideally don’t want people to be waiting for too long in Cancun. I’m glad to hear that you enjoyed Uxmal - Mexico is full of hidden treasures!
