Climb the steps of an ancient Maya pyramid to learn about this bygone civilization, its remarkable legends still carved into stone. As for kids? Our active family tours will have them flying over treetops on a zipline, rafting through rivers or spotting hummingbirds with a naturalist in a cloud forest. And if you’re looking to unwind? Your private villa or luxury hotel with spectacular ocean views awaits.
