The Mayan Empire Adventure AME

Belize   |  Guatemala   |  Mexico

Volcanoes, beaches, rainforest, Mayan culture and outstanding motorcycling Central America.

Starting in Guatemala we ride to the northern part of the country, where three beautiful lakes are waiting for us. Another highlight in the early part of our journey is the famous archeological site of Tikal, located in the middle of the rainforest. Next country is sparsely populated Belize, known for its immense biodiversity. Mexico‘s Yucatán peninsula is last, but not least!

A definite highlight is our rest day in the Cancún area, a center of Mayan civilization in pre-Spanish times. Today it’s a tourist center, offering world-class diving and snorkeling. On our way back to the mountainous south-eastern corner of Mexico we take in the Mayan sites of Chichen Itza and Palenque. The breathtaking Blue Waterfalls will tempt you to take pictures and a refreshing dip. Back in Guatemala, we soak up the gorgeous scenery of our final highlight, Lake Atitlán. What an amazing tour, can’t we just continue?
