Greet your guide at your Merida hotel and begin your archeological adventure in a comfortable 16-seater minivan. Enjoy a light lunch and admire the scenery of the picturesque Mexican countryside during your journey to Uxmal.
On arrival at the sacred and splendid site of Uxmal, set out on your adventure to discover some of Mexico’s most magnificent Mayan architecture. Discover the mysterious allure of Mayan civilization as you follow your guide on a comprehensive 2-hour tour of the site.
Visit the Nunnery Quadrangle to admire the intricate friezes depicting owls and serpents; learn about the astronomical significance of the court’s positioning; and gaze upward at the majestic Pyramid of the Magician, marveling at the precision of its elaborate design. See, too, the gorgeous Governer’s Palace, upon the façade of which are over 100 images of the prominent Mayan deity Chaac, god of rain.
As the sky begins to fade into inky blackness, take your seat at the Nunnery Quadrangle and immerse yourself in the theatrical drama of Uxmal’s luminescent light and sound show. Gaze amazedly as Mayan myths are recreated through the medium of light, watching colors explode into the sky above historically significant structures.
Reminisce about one of the world’s finest light shows on the relaxing return journey to your Merida hotel.
