Guided trip
Do you love to swim in beautiful water holes (cenotes) and laze on white sand beaches overlooking the Caribbean, party the night away and zip-line over the jungle by night? Then look no further! 👋 My name is Dominic and i've been a full time traveller for the best part of 5 years. This time, I'm sharing my adventure with you! Together, we will experience the very best 7 day itinerary in Mexico's number one tourist hotspot. Check it out! 1. Meet in Cancun, stay in Mayan Monkey, arguably the best ever party hostel - Think swimming pools, ocean views, games and cocktails. Set within the 'hotel zone' of the strip, the clubs and nightlife around here are world-class. 2. Powder sands under your feet as we stroll down the whitest of beaches (Playa Delfines) for a day under the sun sipping ice cold Corona - Water sports galore when you need a break from the sun beds. Swimming with whale sharks, jet packing or perhaps just a paddle board? 3. Playa Del Carmen - Dolphin boat tour, fresh seafood, tequilla platters! 4. 'Xplore Fuego' - the unlimited nighttime adventure of the Riviera Maya, an outstanding park that opens as the sun goes down. Full of adrenaline! Zip-line over the starlit jungle, ride ATVs and a raft through torch lit caverns. You won't ever forget this! 5. Next stop Tulum - palm trees, party, world class swimming holes - Let's go! 6. Kaan Luum lagoon - A HUGE cyan lagoon surrounded by jungle. Jump straight in! We will then visit a cenote for another refreshing dip and some magical pictures. A siesta might be in order before we check out Tulums night scene... Beer hats on people! 7. El Gran Cenote - picture perfect, crystal clear waters in a giant cave with walking platforms around. A top diving spot! 'Paradise beach' this afternoon - exactly what it says on the tin. 8. Chichen Itza - One of the new 7 wonders of the world. Ancient pyramids and the ruins left behind from the Mayan civilisation. A must see!

Hi, I'm Dominic and I have been travelling for over 5 years! It all started on a volunteering experience in Kenya. It was living somewhere so different from my motherland that sparked my inner wanderlust. Since then I've done working holidays in both New Zealand and Australia. I've lived in the Amazon and the Cook Islands, backpacked southeast asia, Tanzania and South Africa, worked on a cheetah sanctuary in Namibia and hitchhiked across Mexico. I became a trip leader so I can share my sense of adventure with others. I love music, local foods, and getting off the beaten track, but it's all about WHO you spend your trip with that makes it so special. During a trip led by myself you can expect big things! As many activities will be scheduled into the time frame as possible. (without it becoming overwhelming). Hiking in the hills, wild swimming, exploring local towns, biking, beaches and nightlife can all be expected.
