Belize, September 18, 2012. Island Expeditions introduces travelers to the Yucatan's hidden alter-ego with their exciting new Costa Maya Explorer trip - a 7 night lodge-to-lodge sea kayaking and Mayan cultural adventure. Trip participants get to know the Yucatan's adventurous, wild side...a distinct departure from the manicured, mass tourism found in Cancun.
Drawing on 27 years experience leading small group adventures in Belize and Central America, Island Expeditions will be launching its new Yucatan Costa Maya trip on February 17, 2013. The dynamic, multi-sport Costa Maya Explorer takes trip participants to unexplored beaches and off-the-beaten path towns and attractions. Activities include sea kayaking, kayak surfing, reef and cenote snorkeling, plus visits to remote Mayan archaeological sites.
From pirates to Mayan ruins, the Costa Maya Explorer is a historical journey through the undiscovered Yucatan. Trip participants explore a unique 17th century Spanish fort and pirate museum in the colonial era town of Bacalar, as well as the Mayan ruins of Kohunlich and Dzibanche, which often see less than 100 visitors a week!
The Costa Maya itinerary includes 4 nights in beachfront cabanas at Balamku, one of the finest boutique lodges in the region. This exclusive eco-lodge operates completely off the grid, using solar power and capturing and storing rainwater. After kayaking and cenote snorkeling on the Caribbean, the trip then heads out to the little known Laguna Bacalar, 'the Lagoon of Seven Colors' - a freshwater lagoon known for its breathtaking shades of turquoise blue.
