How To Plan An Amazing Mayan Based Getaway With Your Friends

Posted on

If you're wanting to mix pleasure with learning, heading to Maya territory could turn out to be one of the best vacations you and your friends have ever had. From planning your activities to renting a beachfront villa rental, here are some ideas that might help you to plan a vacation that dreams are made of.

Have A Meeting - A great way to begin your friend vacation is to have a planning meeting.

  • Ask your friends to bring all of their trip ideas with them. By brain storming, you will be inspired by each other's ideas and you will probably end up doing things you didn't consider doing yourself.
  • One idea for your planning meeting is to write down something specific that each person wants to do. For example, if somebody in your group has his or her heart set on going deep sea fishing, write that down. 
  • At your meeting, decide how much you are willing to pay for accommodations. 
  • Decide, too, if you will be flying to your Mayan destination, or if you will be driving. 

Make Your Reservations - Have you considered renting a beachfront villa?  Because you are traveling with friends, you have the luxury of staying somewhere extra magnificent, as you can share the cost of the villa.

  • Staying in a beachfront villa rental means that you will be in a perfect location for easy access to the water.
  • Whether you are renting the villa from an individual or from a rental company, be sure to tell them exactly what your accommodation needs are.
  • For example, if there are going to be children in your group, are there pull-out sofas, futons or other sleeping facilities for the children?
  • Of course, the villa might have so many bedrooms that there are plenty for both adults and children. 

Ahead of time think of hiring a professional tour guide who can go with you, or even take you, to the Mayan ruins. This is probably the best way for you to learn how the Mayan people lived. The tour guide will also probably be able to direct you to the best stores and restaurants. In addition, consider asking the tour guide to tell you the safest places for you to go for night time fun. The tour guide can even help you to set up special excursions with other people. Going with a group might save you some big bucks. For more information, contact companies like Hacienda Del Secreto.
