Your tour begins with pickup from major Merida hotels by small-group van, seating just 16 people.
Enjoy lunch and relax on the scenic drive to the ancient Maya site of Uxmal, the most splendid of the Puuc sites, boasting some of the finest examples of Maya architecture you'll ever see.
Enjoy a two-hour guided tour of Uxmal, highlighting the site’s structures, geometrical figures and masks of the Mayan’s most significant deity, Chaac.
Visit the Nunnery Quadrangle, where friezes represent owls and serpents, and learn the meaning behind 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.
Then, as the sky darkens, take your seat in the Nunnery Quadrangle and prepare yourself for the theatrical drama of Uxmal's spectacular sound and light show, acclaimed as one of the finest in the world.
Watch in amazement as the splendors of the Maya world are recreated with light and sounds, capturing the mystery and magic of Uxmal's past.
After watching the evening sound and light show at Uxmal, relax on the return trip by small-group minivan and be dropped at your Merida hotel.
