Archaeology tours are our specialty here at Ceiba International.
Whether you participate in our River of Ruins adventure, the Yucatan
La Ruta Maya trip or we put together a custom tour package for
your group of friends and family, Ceiba has 30 years experience
in guiding tours in the Maya world.
Our itineraries focus on the Mexican states of
Chiapas, Yucatan, Quintana Roo and Campeche. We also have many
years of experience in Belize, as well.
All of our tours are small groups led by expert
Mayanists. We spend quality time at each site explaining the history,
post and modern culture, hieroglyphic interpretation and the overall
Maya civilization. Ceiba’s guides, chauffeurs and lodge
owners are experts with the local flora and fauna and are always
helpful, friendly and dependable. We take great pride in the infrastructure
that we have laid out with each trip over the years, which allows
us to guarantee a safe and unforgettable vacation for you.
All of our nightly accommodations have been highly
scrutinized and handpicked for their settings, location, ownership,
courteous staff, culinary expertise and diversity, as well as,
the overall feel and tone of the establishment. You’ll have
a blast at each and every one of these stays.
Our Mayanist trip leader is always willing to
get into depth about the theories of the fall of the Maya civilization.
Consistent topics of discussion include the proposed drought,
over-population, agriculture and rainfall issues, and the ties
that bind Maya history to modern day practices and culture.
Maya economics is always a topic of interest.
None of the sites that we will visit on our Maya tours had a common
currency that was controlled by a specific government. Instead,
valuables such as cacao beans, maize, jade beads, obsidian, ceramic
vessels, animal pelts and quetzal feathers were used for trade.
All of Ceiba’s trips and tours offer in-depth
discussions about the eco-environment, the growth and demise of
the Maya civilization, issues related to climate, and the relevance
of astronomy to the Maya. Our Mayanist tour guides will also discuss
with you modern day Maya - including where they are, who their
descendants are, and other cultures that shared ritual and ceremonial
practices, architecture and cultural objects.
After coming home from one of these Maya Adventures
you’ll be well versed in the culture and the region, most
likely wanting to return to see and learn more.
