How Do I Get There?

From Los Angeles you cannot fly directly to. Most people fly to either Mexico City and then take a flight to Merida or they fly to Cancun and take a comfortable bus (or you can hire a private driver) to take them to Merida. Pros and cons of each: flying through Mexico City is more confusing, chaotic, and challenging to navigate but if you are ok with that then it may suit you. Flying to Cancun, you must drive 3 hours to Merida...but the airport is supposedly much easier to navigate.

Once I Pay, What Is Next? 

We will send a short questionnaire and waiver (getting this out of the way allows us to focus on the fun ahead).  At that time, we will inquire about any food allergies and any other preferences that we should be aware of for the trip.  We will, of course, check in along the way and send a recommended packing list, but in the meantime, we are here to help however we can!
