After an early afternoon pick up in Merida by air-conditioned minivan, take a short drive to Uxmal, where you will spend three hours admiring impressive structures designed with geometrical figures and see more masks of the Mayan's most significant deity, Chaac.
At the Nunnery Quadrangle, whose friezes represent owls and serpents, learn about the meaning of the four multi-level buildings arranged around a central plaza. Look up at the oval-shaped Pyramid of the Magician (the Pyramid of the Soothsayer), unrivaled in the beauty of its precise design. View more than 100 images of Chaac on the facade of the Governor's Palace, where a central doorway was built in astronomical alignment with the planets.
You'll also visit the Choco Story Museum. Here, learn about the history of cocoa, its importance to the Mayas, the way it's cultivated and the traditional process to make chocolate. Then enjoy dinner as lights and sounds bring the ancient ruins back to life. Return to Merida late evening.
