YucaTreks tours are for people who don’t do tours

YucaTreks designs tours for people who are not keen on touring the Riviera Maya and Yucatan with large groups. This concept was conceived and developed by a group of local residents who wanted to share their intimate experiences that made them fall in love with area. We believe in authentic exchanges that highlight the lifestyle and unique history of the region. We want to share our accumulated knowledge with visitors who chose this Mayan region for their holidays. Our passion for everything local develops our tour itineraries to encourage an intimate  interchange between people, culture and history as an experience, not just a tour.

There is nothing extreme about us, we just want to share

YucaTreks tours are designed for everyone, taking physical levels, knowledge of Mayan history and interest in diverse environments into consideration. We look to challenge your understanding of the Mayan culture, environment and local knowledge of the Riviera Maya, we do not look to challenge you physically. Our guides are skilled and trained in helping our guests be comfortable in new environments yet assist if you want to step out of their comfort zone and climb a Mayan ruin, or learn to snorkel in a cenote. We share our abilities with you, so you gain more from your experience and fondly remember what you saw and learned.

Enjoy our insights and local knowledge

It is hard to get local on a one week vacation, but YucaTreks is the one to immerse you into the local look and feel of the Riviera Maya and Yucatan. Experience the popular Mayan Ruin sites while digging into the local behind-the-scenes community that continues to shape Yucatan and Riviera Maya towns and villages. We hand pick the best places to go and things to do and create a day that you will remember until your next trip to the area. Think of us as your friend who has designed an overview of the area to show you where we live and work as a way to bring you into our life. This is what makes YucaTreks!

Reviews

  • Chichen Itza was spectacular! The Cenote we went to was awesome! Too bad I can't post pictures. The restaurant we stopped at was fantastic! I tried a bit of every dish and it was astounding! This is our 2nd time using YucaTreks and we will keep on using them. Maybe one of these days Mitch, we will get to Tulum! LOL! !

  • Tulum and Beyong was simply the best! The tour we chose based on Mitch's recommendation was perfect! The price was less expensive than the other tour companies and the quality was far superior! I can honestly say that we got far more than we paid for!!

  • We took the Coba excursion today, with Yuca Treks and highly recommend it. A very enjoyable, day with driver Omar and guide Eder. Very well informed, learned lots and experienced the climb up Coba ... it was a very personal day, and certainly not like one of those massive impersonal bus tours. We also experienced our first cenote and a traditional Mayan meal. We highly recommend Yuca Treks!
