This private Mexico daytrip takes you to the town of Izamal – also known as the “Yellow City” – with its monastery “Convento de San Antonio de Padua” and the Klinich-Kakmó pyramids as highlights.
Today, you will be picked up by your private guide from your hotel in Mérida and taken to the colonial town of Izamal, halfway between Mérida and Chichén Itzá. In the past, this city was known as a “town of hills” because of the dozens of pyramids. Today the city is known as the “yellow city” because of its predominantly ochre yellow buildings. The main attractions are the Kinich-Kakmó Pyramid and the Convento de San Antonio de Padua which is the largest in Yucatán. Completed in 1561, the open atrium of the Monastery is still today second in size only to that at the Vatican. Enjoy a tour of the city and some free time to stroll the cobblestone streets and in the afternoon you will be returned to your hotel in Mérida.
