Haciendas of the Yucatan

Duration
7 Days
Prices From:
US$ 3,145

Spend time in the Yucatan Peninsula with its amazing and outstanding Mayan archaeological sites giving you a good idea of how this civilization lived. Of particular note are Uxmal and Chichen itza. Also enjoy a stay in Merida, the Yucatan’s largest city.


The Yucatan Peninsula contains the most popular beach resort of Cancun, a fairly recently man-made resort dating back to 1970 before which it did not exist as such and is Mexico’s showcase resort. It is naturally endowed with turquoise waters and powdery white sandy beaches. It is here you start tour with an overnight’s accommodation. 

The Yucatan is home to many excellent archaeological sites of the Mayan civilization. Your first introduction is at Tixkokob to visit the Ekbalam archaeological site built between 700 and 1000 AD and includes the three ceremonial sculptures and the main pyramid known as La Torre (The Tower). Later visit the city of Valladolid, the second largest city in the Yucatan. Continue to your overnight hacienda stay in Chichen. 

The next day visit the ancient archaeological site of Dzibilchaltun founded in 600 BC and famous for its old temple and its once astronomical importance. Then head to Temozon where you will stay in a hacienda for 2 nights with a day at leisure to enjoy your accommodation. 


Depart from Temozon and travel to the Uxmal, an important Mayan site. Its buildings are noted for their size and decoration. Thanks to its good state of preservation, it is one of the few Mayan cities where the visitor can get a good idea of how the entire ceremonial centre looked in ancient times. Then it’s on to Uayamon for overnight.

This is followed by an early morning visit to Edzna, a Mayan city which traded mainly with Tikal by whom it was architecturally influenced. Then continue to Campeche, a city founded in 1540 and the oldest city in Yucatan Peninsula. The city centre has some beautifully preserved colonial buildings painted in pastel colours. Then it’s on to Mérida, a city of contrasts. You will find elegant hotels, restaurants and malls plus a large central market and numerous small shops all around the main plaza. Merida has a rich cultural life which also reflects its diversity. Here you can admire monuments such as the Cathedral, the Government Palace, the Municipal Palace and the Francisco Montejo's house. Overnight in Merida. 

On your last day visit one of the most impressive archaeological sites not only in Mexico but in the world. Chichen Itza is the largest and most restored site and also the most visited. The Pyramid of Kukulcan or El Castillo is the most famous landmark of Chichen Itza. It was the Mayan capital of Yucatan and flourished between the 5th and 10th centuries AD. Admire the impressive buildings of the northern and central archaeological sites, such as the Kukulcán Temple, the Ball Game, the Observatory, the Warrior's Temple, the Convent of the Nuns and the Sacred Cenote. Later return to Cancun where your tour ends.
