December 6-14, 2024 Itinerary
The Kanul Kingdom

Our trip dates are December 6-14, 2024. Our trip takes us to the Kanul Kingdom, including Calakmul, Balamku, El Palmar, Dzibanche and more. This trip is special because it allows participants to visit certain archaeological sites that are rarely if ever visited by members of the public and connect them to the Ancient Maya World. We will be learning and discussing the history of this area and how it connects the past to the present.
