Guide was good if verbose, ruins were worth the visit, I avoided the choco factory but my colleagues said I was smart as they were swarmed by 30 kids in there. Lunch at the Lodge was good but confused as well. Our tour was a combination of Grey Line and Viator passengers which added to the confusion.

ITINERARY

Your first stop will be Uxmal, known to many by way of legend, myth or anecdote. It is situated within a series of hills known as the Puuc, or “mountainous area” in the Maya. The name was later given to describe the architectural style of the region, such as the colossal Magicians Pyramid, impressive Governors Palace, intricate Dove’s Temple and grand Nuns Quadrangle.
The archaeological structures and buildings located throughout Uxmal are ornamented with geometrical figures and masks of the rain god, Chaac. The rain god was considered by the Maya people as one of the most important of their deities.
Have lunch at either the beautiful Hacienda Uxmal or in the gardens of the Lodge of Uxmal surrounded by unique Maya Palapas.
Then visit the Choco Story Museum and learn about the history of cocoa, its importance to the Mayas, the way it is cultivated and the traditional process to make chocolate.
Next visit Kabah, a Puuc-style city that flourished around the year 800 AD. Kabah is known as the second largest religious center in the Puuc-style. (Puuc is the Mayan name given to a series of low-lying hills with a unique culture and style.)
After sightseeing, enjoy the beautiful pool and gardens of the Hacienda Uxmal Hotel.
We will depart at 4:00pm from Uxmal in order to be in Merida around 5:00pm.
