Trip Overview

Day 1

Take a scenic water taxi from the main island to Caye Caulker as you gaze in awe at the surrounding beauty and crystal blue waters.

Arrive at your boutique hotel with ocean views and get settled in before enjoying your first meal on this Caribbean island with no cars that goes by the motto, "Go Slow."

Day 2

Snorkeling Trip

After a delicious breakfast at a local cafe, travel by private boat to snorkel the world famous Hol Chan Marine Reserve, as well as the second largest barrier reef in the world.

Snorkel beneath the surface of the ocean and swim with a wide array of bright, tropical fish, mind-blowing coral formations, and maybe even massive manatees and sea turtles.

Enjoy lunch at sea as you gaze out at the crystal blue water and enjoy good conversation with your new friends. 

Next, experience Shark and Ray Alley where you'll get the amazing (and safe) opportunity to swim with harmless sharks, stingrays, and other rich marine life.

Enjoy the scenic ride back to the island while you sip on rum punch, before enjoying dinner at a local restaurant in Caye Caulker.

*weather conditions may alter the day of these activities

Day 3

Cave Tubing on Sinbun River

After another delicious breakfast at a local restaurant, get ready to enter the exciting world of rivers disappearing into the underworld as you float on inner tubes with only your headlamp to light your way. 

Your local guide will walk you down our jungle track, pointing out the various medicinal trees and other flora, before splashing into the cool, easy flowing waters of the Sinbun branch.

Back in Caye Caulker, relax in the turquoise water at The Split – the local swimming hole Caye Caulker is famous for – and play Bags right by the water with locals.

Then, enjoy another delicious dinner and maybe even try the Caribbean Jerk or one of the many hot sauces Belize is famous for.

Day 4

Explore Caye Caulker

Take the day to "go slow" and get to know the stunning island of Caye Caulker. Rent a bike to explore, enjoy a beachfront massage, or relax at the Split with your friends.

Another great option is to hang out on inner tubes while floating on the turquoise water soaking in the island vibes. 

Enjoy your last dinner in Caye Caulker. This will be a time to truly connect with the small travel group who you have come to know over the last few days in paradise.

Day 5

Depart for Tulum, Mexico

After enjoying a final breakfast on the island, take a scenic water taxi to Chetumal, Mexico where you will get your passport stamped and board your included transportation to Tulum, Mexico.

Arrive at your boutique hotel in the center of Tulum away from other overbuilt resorts and in the heart of Mexican & Mayan culture just steps away from some of the best Mayan Ruins.

Catch your first Mexican sunset while enjoying a margarita and feel the vibe of Tulum as you savor a delicious Mexican meal right in town.

Day 6

Laguna Monkey Reserve & Coba Ruins

Today you'll take an action-packed day-trip to the Coba Archaeological Site & Sanctuary and climb one of the tallest Mayan pyramids on the Yucatan Peninsula. 

You will start the day by experiencing an authentic Mayan Ceremony performed by a local Shaman.

Admire the spectacular views over the Yucatan jungle and then cross a Mayan Lagoon by canoe or zip line.

Finally, rappel down into an ancient cenote known and celebrated by Mayans as gates to the underworld.

Enjoy a delicious Mexican meal in town before listening to live music at a local mojito bar where you just may have the best mojito of your life

Day 7

Experience Chichen Itza

Chichen Itza was one of the largest Mayan cities and most mystical according to Mesoamerican literature.

The giant step pyramid called El Castillo is world-famous and is considered one of the New 7 Wonders of the World.

Back in Tulum, go out for an amazing meal and dance to a variety of Mexican music to celebrate your final night with your new friends and fellow group of young travelers.

Day 8

Beach Day & Secret Cenotes

Wake up early and enjoy some pristine beach time.

Swim in the striking blue, warm ocean while admiring Mayan Ruins right from the water – the only place in the world where this is possible.

U30X is such an amazing travel community. Once your trip is over, the experience is not. They keep in touch with their alumni & provide platforms for travel questions, personal development, & community connections in your own backyard! If you're a young person looking to travel I highly recommend U30X!

There are not enough ways for me to describe how amazing this company is. After my first trip I always told people, it wasn't about the location, but the experience that u30x gave me. I have some of the best experiences of my life with u30x, and now a passion for travel. Also, their alumni community and groups are awesome too!

Traveling with U30X has been life changing for me. I've made lifelong friends with both travelers and staff. I can't come up with enough good things to say about the company, the people, and the experiences I've had!

Just returned from my second trip with Under30Experiences. My first trip was to the Costa Rica rainforest. My most recent trip was to Iceland. Both trips were such an amazing experience. I loved learning about Iceland and its origins. I enjoy the small groups and I made some great new friends! Recommend them for anyone wanting to travel alone or with a couple of friends.

I was so scared to travel abroad alone and then I came across their website and they made international travel so easy! And the people I’ve met on the trips are some amazing individuals! I’ve done 6 of their trips and plan on continuing to do even more!!

My Hike the Inca Trail trip was beyond amazing, and I couldn't have asked for anything more from a trip. Our leaders made us all feel instantly comfortable, and the group was fantastic. The trip was well planned and the hike was unforgettable. Memories to last a lifetime.
