We start our journey gently with the visit of a mayan family. A time to share and learn about agriculture, cooking and traditions…

Our circuit will bring you to visit 3 of the most beautiful archeological zones of the area :
Ek Balam and its stunning facade made of stucco, preserved from time and climate, a real miracle!
Chichen Itza, the impressive ancient city of the post-classic period, and the most well known. We will live early from Valladolid to arrive at the opening to enjoy the place before the heat and the crowd.
Uxmal, the most impressive prehispanic architecture in the middle of the Puuc hills !



Cenote

You'll be able to visit 3 beautiful colonial cities: Valladolid, Izamal et Merida, and have some time to wander in their charming streets and squares, feel the mood in between old times and modern life. You'll visit an old hacienda and learn about the Yucatan green gold (the henequen) and the 19th century in the Yucatan Peninsula.


Almost every day, we'll stop at a cenote for a refreshing swim! Cenotes are beautiful sinkholes or natural swimming pools in caves quite common in the area. The 4th day, we'll go on a "truck ride" to reach 2 cenotes to swin and enjoy those Natural Beauties. Trucks are pulled by a mule and were used for transport in the Huge haciendas of the 19th century. They are now used for turism to reach the cenotes. A Fun ride to Enjoy the forest and tell you a bit more about Haciendas' old times!.
