Long description

Leaving the city of Mérida towards the Yaxcopoil hacienda, where you can visit the interior of the hacienda, these have their origin in the encomiendas to the
arrival of the Spaniards, this generally included houses of important architectural value and other smaller buildings focused on farm work, built in the golden age of Oro Verde. We continue to -the three times built-, Uxmal, which is located in an area of hills called Puuc; It is the most important city in the area for being a true jewel due to its style of smooth friezes and decorated ceilings, highlighting the Pyramid of the Magician, the Quadrangle of the Nuns and the Governor’s Palace.

Later we will visit a cenote that is an underground water tank, where you can enjoy its crystal clear waters, ideal for cooling off.
To finish we will return to the white city of Mérida.
