Mérida & Ruta & Ruta Puuc - Custom Package
On this trip you'll not only be able to explore Mérida, but on your second day you'll travel to Ruta Puuc as well. Mérida is known as "The White City" due to its white colonial buildings found all over the city. It's the largest city in the Mexican state, Yucatan, and a big financial capital as well. Here you'll see a great mix of modern and traditional culture through museums, restaurants and shops. Of course you'll experience the most history when you travel to Ruta Puuc, which contains five Mayan archaeological sites. Unlike some other ruin sites in Mexico, Ruta Puuc is far less traveled, providing you with a more intimate experience. Whether you decide on this trip, or our other trip to Mérida & Chichen Itza, you are sure to have the perfect balance of old and new.
Today you'll arrive in Mérida. Here you'll see colonial architecture as you stroll through the streets of the city. As in many places in Mexico, the central square and heart of the city is where you'll experience the pulse of the city. If you're looking for a nice way to spend your evening, you're sure to find it here.
Hotel Del Gobernador* (Classic)
Today you'll travel along the Ruta Puuc and encounter the Mayan culture and history of the region. You'll specifically visit two religious sites today, Uxmal and Kabah, which are connected by a 18km long path. During its peak, around 20,000 people lived in Uxmal, an religious and political center for the Maya people. Kabah was the second most important city in the area and also worth a visit. Be mesmerized with all that the Maya people were able to accomplish and build so long ago.
