Steppes Travel announces new escorted tour to Southern Mexico. Steppes Travel are one of only a few travel companies to organise tours to spectacular country.

Southern Mexico, the jungles of Belize and smoking volcanoes of Guatemala saw the rise & decline of an extraordinary civilisation The Maya. This tour explores what was once their world from the unique angle of adventure. Kayak turquoise blue seas, snorkel over colourful coral reefs, swim in underground caves, horse-ride through tangled jungle in search of ancient ruins and cycle down steep sided, beautiful volcanoes. The trip begins on the Yucatan coast where swimming in the sea and caves is a must. From here the tour heads inland and into the jungles of Belize from where a fantastic diversity of wildlife abounds. The numbers of monkeys, birds and even small cats are impressive and, in the mornings, certainly noisy. From Belize you hardly notice the change of country into Guatemala and to the mystical ruins of Tikal. Finally the tour takes in the highlands with their stunning lakes and beautiful back drops of snow-capped volcanoes. This is a truly exciting trip full of culture, history, wildlife and above all adventure.
