About Us

Who we are

Inspired by the deep respect and passion we own for the land and culture of the ancestral and modern Maya, added to the transcendent breath that famous travelers from history such as John Lloyd Stephens and Frederick Catherwood have inherited, we conceive expeditions to discover the capacity for observation, amazement and enrichment of our travelers nowadays, while wellness and relaxation are raised in parallel to traditional knowledge and dreams.

Through encounters that unfold in an especially latent time, the opportunity is to appreciate the transcendence of the perspectives and connections that bring us together here: together with natural rhythms and the cycles of the cosmos.

At Catherwood Travels we carry the Good Health Practices Certification of Yucatán. We obey the safety and hygiene standards and the social permits established. In each of our properties we have implemented the cleaning protocols of the COVID-19 pandemic health, safety and behavior committee . In order to promote a healthy and hygienic environment, which guarantees the protection and measures to safeguard the health of our employees and customers.
