Do it on your own. Do it with a partner, a group, or an organized tour. As long as you do it, i.e. go to the Mundo Maya. For tour options, JB Journeys (no relation) is offering a number of organized trips in the region this year, notably THE GREAT RETURN: COPAN 2012, WINTER SOLSTICE IN HONDURAS , a week-long retreat in Honduras .
Shannon Kring Buset, one of the guides and leaders of the trip, says it “features several of the world’s leading Maya archaeologists, scholars, epigraphers, and archaeoastronomers, who will present the latest breakthroughs in how the ancient Maya thought about 2012. It will also introduce you to the living Maya, as well as to ceremonialists, who will welcome us into their lives and sacred rituals." Kring Buset is an award-winning author, speaker, and filmmaker, as well as a partner in WildHeart Vision , a media company that promotes ancient and indigenous wisdom on film, which has several Maya-based projects.
The Honduras trip begins on the coast, at Lodge at Pico Bonito  then continues to Copán Ruinas, where participants stay at the lovingly restored ranch, Hacienda San Lucas,  a notable property with a view of the archaeological site. Presenters include Dr. David Sedat, field director of University of Pennsylvania Museum’s Early Copán Archaeological Project, and Dr. Barbara Macleod of Austin, a linguist who speaks a number of Mayan languages.
