  • Overview

    Uxmal is one of the most representative cities of the Mayan culture. It is 38 miles away from Merida and, at its peak, had a population of 25,000. This impressive city has a particular structure known as Puuc, typical in this area, built following a quadrangular design.

    During this tour, we will visit the Magician's Pyramid, the Quadrangle of the Nuns, the Ball Game Court, and the Governor's Palace. According to historical references, Uxmal was a walled fortress and the name means “three times built”. The Magician's Pyramid is 115 feet tall and a legend says it was built in just one night. It is made up of 5 structures from different eras and is the most important edifice of this archeological zone.

    Later, we’ll go south to explore Kabah, which means “the lord with the strong and powerful hand”. This city is particularly known for being connected by roads or “sabec,” one of which was popularly used as a path to Uxmal, located 23 miles to the north.

    Once in Kabah, we will visit the famous Arch that connects both cities. Then, we’ll walk to the Great Pyramid and the stunning Temple of the Masks. This interesting journey into the Mayan world ends with a delicious lunch buffet style at a nice mexican restaurant.
