A tour of the Puuc Route is a trip through the Maya civilization of the past. This tour will also stop at KABAH “The Lord of the Stone Hand”.
We will visit the Mayan Arch at the entry to Kabah, made of stone with geometric figures and symbols that show the mysteries of the Mayan world.
Along the road we find the Hacienda YAXCOPOIL, a clear example of the architectural style of the henequen haciendas. The haciendas are know for ample rooms, high ceilings and large, cool corridors. This specific hacienda still has antique furniture in the main house, as well as the machine room and defibering plant.
Enjoy the cool crystal blue turquoise water and the marine life. Here you can enjoy a variety of activities such as diving, swimming and snorkeling.
Choco Story Museum
At Choco-Story Uxmal you will travel back in time to an era of splendor in a Maya pueblo. Learn about daily life, enter their homes, cornfields, and gardens, and learn how cacao is transformed into chocolate. You will continue traveling through history from the Spanish court to the 19th century, the moment when chocolate was introduced to the world with a variety of textures, mixtures, and flavors.
Hacienda Temozón Sur
On the return to Mérida we will stop to eat and admire the hacienda Temozón Sur with its cool and fresh atmosphere and design and architecture that creates spaces to enjoy the passage of time.
