Wonderfully varied itinerary that combines culture, adventure and relaxation

Wander through Cuzco's colonial quarter and discover Inca ruins and colourful market stalls

Opt to head inland in Mexico to discover amazing Maya ruins
Best time to combine these two destinations is April to June
April to October is best for time for visiting Peru’s Andean region and main highlights. It is typically sunny in the day and cold at night due to altitude. Heavy rains last from December to end of February with January and February being the wettest months. Peru is very popular in the high season, especially during their many cultural festivals such as Inti Raymi on 24 June, so best to book well in advance.
The Yucatán Peninsulao of Mexico is hot and humid. The best time to visit is during the dryer, slightly cooler months between November and May. Hurricane season runs from June to November. There’s afternoon showers most days during the tropical season with September and October typically being the wettest months and the ones with most risk of a tropical storm.
Discover the fascinating cultures of two of Latin America's most remarkable civilisations, the Incas and the Mayas, on this incredible journey through Peru and Mexico, taking in Peru's absolute highlights before flying over to Mexico's Caribbean coast for some relaxation on its powdery white beaches.
Begin by flying into Lima and connect on to Cuzco, heading straight for the stunning Sacred Valley. This valley, which runs almost from Cuzco to Machu Picchu, is incredibly beautiful and is still a sacred place for the Incas, with a greater density of archaeology here than anywhere else on earth. High snow-capped peaks guard the Urubamba River, and there are colourful market towns and ancient sites to explore. A range of adventures are on offer here including horse riding, rafting, paragliding and biking. We have included a full-day tour of the valley with visits to local villages and ruins.
Next, it’s time for one of the highlights of any trip to Peru as you board the train for the journey to Machu Picchu. Set high in the Andes and surrounded by mysterious cloudforest, Machu Picchu is bound to take your breath away as you explore the site with a private guide. Stay overnight at Inkaterra Machu Picchu Pueblo, a comfortable hotel set amongst the cloud forest, a short drive from the ruins.
Return by train to Cuzco, the ancient Inca capital and one of the most interesting cities in the Americas. Spanish colonial architecture sits on top of Inca masonry, and there are many narrow streets and squares, great museums and wonderfully evocative sites like the temple of Sacsayhuaman to explore. We have included a half day city tour with a private guide, including visits to the ruins which surround Cuzco.
Return to Lima for a night staying at the lovely Hotel B, located in Lima's bohemian Barranco district, a great spot to sample some of the city's restaurants and peña bars, before flying to spend a relaxing time on the gorgeous white sand beaches of Mexico.
Fly to Cancun for your final five nights, spending days relaxing on the white sand of Mexico’s Riviera Maya. The powdery sand and turquoise waters invite relaxation but there is also a huge array of activities on offer nearby and impressive Mayan ruins to explore. Opt to do as little or as much as you like, staying at the Viceroy Riviera Maya which is an exclusive adults-only property, where each villa has its own private pool, perfect for honeymooners.
Wonderful full day private excursion to the village of Pisac home to its colourful Indian market and Inca ruins in the Sacred Valley of the Incas. Lunch in Urubamba, followed by a visit to the impressive Inca town and fortress of Ollantaytambo.
On arrival at Aguas Calientes train station you will be met by your guide and assisted with boarding the 30 minute bus journey to the ruins. You will be able to take lunch before meeting your guide again to start your tour.
