On this private Mexico daytrip you will first explore the ruins of Uxmal before you can refresh yourself in two still relatively unknown cenotes. Then continue to the Hacienda Yaxcopoil and Mérida.
Today you will visit the archaeological site of Uxmal, which is the Yucatan‘s most important archeological excavation, apart from Chichén Itzá. The architecture of Uxmal is an example of that present in the Puuc region. The temples have smooth low walls which represent traditional Maya huts and many figures of the rain god Chaac. Now that you have earned some time to relax and cool off, make a quick stop at San Antonio Mulix, where you will find two still undiscovered, quiet and idyllic cenotes which can only be reached via a bumpy and overgrown path of jungle vegetation. A must see off the beaten path secret!
Continue to the ancient Hacienda Yaxcopoil, considered one of the most important sisal Haciendas of Yucatan in the 17th century. Feel transported back in time while admiring the original furnishings of the former residence. Afterwards, you continue to Mérida, better known as the “white city” where you can explore this beautiful colonial city full of life and history on a guided tour. Merida is also famous for its regional cuisine which mixes Maya ingredients and techniques with European and Mexican dishes. Try the sopa de lima or cochinita pibil.
