Mayan Adventure - CAM

Postby readingfcboi » Fri Dec 21, 2012 2:12 pm

Hello,

I have recently booked to go on the Mayan Adventure tour, has anyone else been on this tour and got any tips?

Also would be great to hear from anyone else thinking/doing the same tour as me in July.

Thanks in advance :D

Hey,

Shame we arent on the same trip. It looks like you start your trip as mine comes to an end.

Enjoy the trip! 8)

That's a really good deal. The cliff divers look amazing. I just can't wait to get snorkeling in the sea and see all the amazing sea life.

Hey

I'm about to book onto the tour starting 3rd August - looks amazing, bit concerned about it being technically hurricane season but fingers crossed weather will be good and will be lucky!

Anyone else thinking about a tour in August? :D

It sounds like a great trip and I'm sure you'll have a wonderful time but the Antigua mentioned in the itinerary is in Guatemala (and no-where near the ocean) so you won't be seeing any cliff diving there. The pictures you've seen are from the Island of Antigua in the Carribean. However, you can hike up an active volcano in Antigua, Guatemala. And if you have a craving for "western" food go to McDonald's in Antigua. Its unlike any McDonalds you have ever been to - in a good way.

I was in Costa Rica last August and before hand I had been worried about it being rainy season and hurricane season as well. To my pleasant surprise we had less rain than when I had been there in December a year and a half before. Other than September and October, the rainy season typically means is rains for a few hours each day in Central America and its generally warm enough that you don't care. However, no guarantees that this year will be "typical".

Do you have to have a good level of fitness for this trip? I'm not very fit and want to enjoy it all.

I did the trip last year (in March) and it is GREAT. Am jealous of everyone still looking out for the trip! :lol:
As to fit-levels, I'm 44 now and of average fitness and I was fine doing everything. The volcano-hike is a bit steep, but that is for everyone... you just need to find your own pace, and also bear in mind that the first part IS the hardest (I think they do that on purpose so you would pay for a horse or a donkey to carry you up :D ).
Volcano-hike, caving and of course the snorkeling are definite highlights, next to palenque! Ow, and every other day... sigh... good memories...
