IS LODGING INCLUDED ?
MWE includes a carefully selected array of hotels for lodging as described in every itinerary.
They are chosen considering the distance to the places to be visited and comfort afforded.
All hotels are rated 3 and 4 stars and some even have a special category assigned to them depending on physical location.
All TIPS to Bellboys and chambermaids are included but additional tipping is optional and at the personal discretion of every tour member.
I AM NOT USED TO LONG OPEN AIR WALKS. CAN I PARTICIPATE ?
Every Excursion has been designed for the enjoyment of participants; however, they involve open air walks in different types of terrain and weather conditions, mostly typical of the Tropics. Sometimes, these walks can be considered prolonged with several overnight stays at hotels where there is the need to pack and unpack. It is imperative the participant has no physical or mental limitations and that travel gear is as light as possible.
For those participants travelling with a lot of equipment and who wish to arrive before or alter the Tour, there are storage facilities a tour base hotel in Cancún.
WHAT TYPE OF CLOTHING TO PACK ?
Most Tours include open air activities so cotton clothing and comfortable shoes are a must. For evening activities, casual dressing is ok. A sweat short might be helpful for the occasional cool evening.
In Mexico most lodging facilities and restaurants are smoke-free. If you have a particular request in this sense please make it well in advance and we shall attempt our best to accommodate you.
Since most expeditions are done in the open air and in the middle of the jungle, we strongly suggest the use of biodegradable sun blocking and insect repellent lotions. These products may be purchased on arrival through your MWE representative.
Though the photographs in our brochures are as accurate as possible, there may be slight differences. We are grateful for your understanding.
