Itinerary

Your Merida day trip to Xcambo, Corchito, and Progreso will begin with hotel pick-up in Merida and transfer to the town of Xcambo, or “place of trade” in Mayan. This pre-Hispanic city was once a major center for trade, and its stunning architecture is characterized by pyramids and facades adorned with intricate masks.

Explore the Mayan ruins, then visit the local Chapel of the Virgin of Guadalupe — a major pilgrimage site for Mexican Catholics. As you wander the streets of Xcambo, admire the mangrove forests and palm trees that surround this the tropical, coastal paradise.

Later, visit Corchito Ecological Reserve for a closer look at the mangrove forests. Here, you’ll take a small boat across the wildlife-rich estuary to encounter a variety of plants, birds, fish, and other animals that live in this vital ecosystem. Here, you’ll have opportunity to refresh yourself in the freshwater sinkhole hidden amidst the mangroves, in the company of birds and curious raccoons-like nausas.

Finally, you’ll set out for Progreso, a major seaport city for the Yucatan. Here, walk along the coastal avenue, enjoy the sea breeze, and delight in the outstanding regional seafood restaurants.
