EXPERIENCE

At 6:00 AM, meet your private guide in the lobby of your Cancun hotel and board a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan for the 4-hour drive to Uxmal. Arrive at the UNESCO-listed archaeological site, and spend time exploring what’s considered to be one of the most important sites in the Maya world in the company of your guide. Climb to the top of the “magician’s pyramid” and visit the “temple of the turtle,” where the female religious leaders lived. 

After visiting Uxmal, continue your tour to Merida; the capital of the Yucatan peninsula. Constructed by Spanish conquistadors in the 16th century, the colonial town has colorful historic buildings around a central plaza. Walk along the main street, visit the main square, and see a historic church. 

At a nearby cacao plantation, learn how the ancient Maya people used cacao beans, and see the preparation of cacao into natural chocolate. Before returning to your Cancun hotel, enjoy a final stop at a traditional Yucatan hacienda; the former house of rich conquistadors and their slaves. Say goodbye to your guide around 7:30 PM to conclude the tour.
