About Us

About our company

MexiMayan Travel is a non-profit educational travel  company dedicated to quality educational trips at reasonable prices.

In 1972 Doreen and Robert Stelton were teachers, taking their students on Maya study trips to Mexico and Guatemala..

The demand grew as friends learned about our trips and MexiMayan was born.  Stephen Carr joined a trip to Guatemala and he became an enthusiastic officer of MexiMayan. Soon other teachers and archaeologists wanted us to arrange trips for them to go as leaders. The Maya were the first interest of the firm and although the company visits exciting sites all over the world, the firm chooses to keep the name so many remember.

"Excellent service – Thank you for a fantastic week.
We have used travel service providers for almost twenty years now and yours was among the most diligent, thoughtful, creative and service oriented.
The entire experience was as close to perfect as it gets."

A traveler, part of a group booked regularly by an artist / teacher: "Thank you for putting together what I consider to be a smooth and satisfying trip to Mexico and Belize.
As with the China trip, I’ve enjoyed being able to visit new places, meet new people, and get a glimpse into other cultures. All the sites were amazing and it opened my curiosity about a period of time, area and people that I knew very little. I love that I come out of these trips with a few more friends."
