Your Destination —
Nonetheless, the Mayan Civilization covered a vast extension, from Mexico's Southern Pacific Coast and all the way in to Central America. Traces of Maya nomad settlements date back to 1500 BC. We distinguish mainly 3 Mayan periods of social and urban development: Nomad, Mayan Pre-Classical and Mayan Classical.
These periods are relatively evident in their building techniques, their carved inscriptions on their pyramids, buildings and temples. The Mayans developed a structure of writing, using hieroglyphs; and so kept record of Mayan findings in mathematics, architecture and astronomy.

Early departure from your hotel lobby towards Uxmal to visit the site Uxmal, which in Mayan means three times constructed. The architecture of Uxmal is among the most majestic in Yucatan. Its beauty is characterized by low and horizontal palaces placed around patios and quadrants richly decorated with detailed sculptures.

Day 3 Mérida - Izamal - Chichén Itzá- Tulum
Check out from the hotel and commence a city tour in Merida before we start our way to Izamal to visit a quaint colonial city where time seems to have stopped. The city´s convent has the second largest atrium in the world after the one at St. Peters in the Vatican. The first missionary convent in Mexico was built in Izamal as the city was founded just after 1542.
We will continue to the archaeological site of Chichén Itzá, a site that represents the most intact and impressive of the ruins of the Mayan Civilization that the modern world preserves today. Chichén Itzá means "Mouth of the well of the Itzaes". Its impressive constructions include the splendid Castle of Kukulcán, the Ball court; the Observatory and the Sacred well just to mention a few. All of these structures are breathtaking.
