My Bio

It's been 35 years since my first visit to the Maya ruins of Uxmal.  Since that time I've explored every corner of the Maya world.  Our focus is interdisciplinary: archaeology, history, biology, anthropology and the use of technology in Maya studies.

We cater to the mature traveler who wants adventure and knowledge but prefers not to sleep on the ground.
