The pre-designed Quintana Roo daytrips are calculated with groups of five, and include transportation, lunches, entrance fees, tour guides, and certified guides in archaeological sites. Feel free to compose your own itinerary - and don't forget to leave a lazy beach day in between!  Please keep in mind that some components of the pre-designed trips are optional, and itineraries can be modified to accommodate travelers with special needs, or cross-generational groups.  Please email for special rates and needs, or to arrange for a guide in your language: info at accessecotours.com

What to bring/wear:
Sunglasses, hat, camera/batteries, insect repellent, biodegradeable sunblock, comfortable clothes and footwear, swim wear, a towel, extra t-shirt, some change for tips - and maybe educational items (books, notepads, pens), senseful toys, clothes or fruit when we go to the Mayan communities.  Mexican museums charge USD for the use of video cameras.
