Overview

Beyond her beautiful beaches, Yucatan boasts an impressive cultural and historical heritage as the repository of treasures of Maya civilization, such as Chichén Itza and Uxmal. Your journey back in time to appreciate the greatness of these ancient cities clawed back from the jungle, and discover the excellence of the colorful colonial cities of Izamal and Merida. Spend the night in atmospheric properties to further enhance the trip’s magical experience.

ITINERARY

After landing in Cancun International Airport, you will be met by a tour representative who will transfer you to your hotel in Cancun. Then you can spend the rest of the day at leisure, getting to know this fantastic new location at your own rhythm. Make the most of the services available at the hotel, or hit the streets and start exploring the wonders of Cancun.

Overnight in Cancun

Today’s adventure starts with a visit to Ría Lagartos Biosphere Reserve on the northern coast of the Yucatan Peninsula, home to the largest flocks of pink flamingos in Mexico, in addition to the almost 400 bird species that have been identified here. Take a two-hour boat trip through the mangroves in the reserve’s estuary to observe flamingos, crocodiles and other animals.

The trip also includes a visit to feeding areas, a stop for a Maya mud bath with mineral-rich white mud and a dip in the salt-rich waters of the lagoon. We then visit a cenote – a natural sinkhole – for some time to cool off with a swim and enjoy a delicious lunch. After the visit, continue to the hotel in Chichen Itza.

Overnight in Chichen Itza .

Perhaps one of the most magical moments you can experience in Mexico is viewing the sunrise over Chichén Itza. Make an early start in this enigmatic location, one of the most important archaeological sites of the Maya. Observe the quiet surroundings as you arrive before the grounds are open to the public. Learn about the Maya and this ancient city reclaimed from the jungle.

Behold the Temple of Kukulkan, popularly known as El Castillo (‘the Castle’), built both as a representation of the mystical Maya calendar and to reflect the optical illusion of a serpent slithering up and down the pyramid during the spring and autumn equinoxes. Admire the Great Ball Court, the haunting Skull Platform where the heads of human sacrifice victims and prisoners of war were impaled, and the Sacred Cenote, where sacrifice victims were dumped.

Other extremely well-preserved areas include the Temple of the Warriors, the Ossuary, the Nunnery and adjacent Church, and the large observatory known as the Snail. Then return to the hotel for breakfast. Then make your way to the Maya town of Izamal, which combines remnants of its pre-Hispanic past, the colonial period and the present. Visit the Convent of St Anthony of Padua, which stands on a former Maya pyramid.

After lunch (not included), continue to the ‘White City’ of Merida, the capital of Yucatan, to enjoy a tour of the historical downtown. See the 19th-century villas and palaces that line the Paseo de Montejo, and continue to the splendid Plaza Grande, home to the cathedral and the 16th-century Casa de los Montejo. Also visit the Government Palace and City Hall, before enjoying some free time to discover the city on your own.

Overnight in Merida.

Breakfast at the hotel is followed by a morning exploring the ruins of another former Maya city clawed back from the vegetation. Arrive at Uxmal and enjoy a guided tour of this UNESCO-listed World Heritage Site that rises into view above the jungle canopy. Unlike other Maya cities, Uxmal was devoured by the rain forest after the Spaniards had arrived. The most famous structure is the 35-meter-tall Pyramid of the Magician, towering over the remarkably well-preserved Nunnery Quadrangle with its ornately carved interior and exterior walls. Across the central plaza, just beyond the ballgame court, is the Governor’s Palace. At the southern end of the main complex is the Great Pyramid, of which only one side has been excavated with the other three still unclaimed from the bush.

After this, visit a Cocoa Museum where the plant and its importance for the ancient Mayans will be explained. Then return to Cancun or Riviera Maya to your extension hotel, where the tour ends.

Day 4: Late arrival in Cancun. If you are booking onward flights it is recommended not to book a flight prior to 20:00 hrs. Breakfast included.
