HMNH Study Leader: Dr. Alexandre Tokovinine


Although close to home, the realm of the ancient Maya is truly like a different world, full of contrasts: spectacular ancient art, writing, and architecture, today's indigenous peoples, and exotic tropical plants and animals. This 14-day program is a true jungle adventure with the best-paced itinerary to thoroughly explore ancient Maya sites in the dense, tropical rainforests of Mexico, Guatemala, and Honduras. We take our time to see eight (possibly nine) of the most remarkable ancient sites of the lowland Maya, four of which are World Heritage sites. No other trip has three nights each at Tikal and Copán, so you will also have time to relax, reflect, and enjoy lectures and your comfortable hotels and remote jungle lodges. Gain fascinating insights about Maya art, architecture, and epigraphy with your study leader, Dr. Alexandre Tokovinine, and expert guides. Join them and discover huge temple-pyramids that soar above the rainforest, enormous stelae (carved monoliths), painted frescoes, stucco friezes, and carved lintels, plus tropical mammals and birds (such as howler monkeys and toucans).
