Discover the Beauty and Majesty of the Uxmal Ruins

The Uxmal Ruins Site is a pure gem of Puuc art and architecture. Withe more than 150 pre-Hispanic buildings, it is no wonder Uxmal was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The buildings’ unique architecture will leave you in awe as you walk the grounds. Visit the Governor’s Palace and the Pyramid of the Wizard, which, according to legend, was build in one night. Also visit Kabah, “The Lord of the Stone Hand,” and see its Arch of Triumph.

Choose between visiting Hacienda Yaxcopoil, Cenote Xbatun, or the Choco-Story Museum. Come to understand the process of producing henequen products and the lifestyle that revolved around the plant at Hacienda Yaxcopoil. Or, alternately, go for a different experience at the Cenote, where you can relax by the cool turquoise water and admire the marine life. You can also dive, swim, and snorkel there. The Choco-Story Museum lets you learn about the history of the region. Regardless of what you choose, you will have a fantastic day on this Yucatan tour!

Itinerary

First, you will take the Puuc Route to the Uxmal ruins, a trip through the Maya civilization of the past. You will also stop at the site of Kabah, “The Lord of the Stone Hand.” At the entry to Kabah, you will see the Mayan Arch, a stone monument with geometric figures and symbols showing the mysteries of the Mayan world. Next, you have a choice to visit Hacienda Yaxcopoil, Cenote Xbatun, or the Choco-Story Museum.

The Hacienda Yaxcopoil is a clear example of the architectural style of the henequen haciendas. They are known for ample rooms, high ceilings, and large, cool corridors. This particular hacienda still has antique furniture in the main house, as well as a machine room and defibering plant.

Another option is enjoying the cool, crystal, blue-turquoise water and marine life of the Cenote Xbatun. Here, you can enjoy a variety of activities such as diving, swimming, and snorkeling.

Your third option is the Choco-Story Museum. There, you can travel back in time to an era of splendor in a Maya pueblo. Learn about daily life, enter their homes, cornfields, and gardens, and learn how cacao is transformed into chocolate. You will continue traveling through history from the Spanish court to the 19th century, the moment when chocolate was introduced to the world with a variety of textures, mixtures, and flavors.

On the way back to Merida, you will stop to eat lunch and admire the unique architecture of the Hacienda Temozón Sur. You will love its cool, fresh atmosphere and spaces to relax.
