Are you ready for a great week? Take the Turibus from the closest stop to your hotel and see the Mérida sights, hopping off and on at the places you like the most. In the evening, relax over a delicious dinner at Hacienda Santa Cruz.
Today we are on the move! Rent a car and go to Valladolid, walk through its pretty streets, shops, and remember to order the typical “longaniza” sausage for lunch. Then head to the archaeological site of Chichén Itzá and check in to your reserved room at Mayaland or Hacienda Chichén. At night watch the video mapping “Noches de Kukulkán.”
Explore the fascinating archaeological site, and if you want to learn more you can hire a certified guide. In the afternoon, after so much history, rest and relax at the Yaxkin spa at Hacienda Chichén. In the evening, enjoy a nice dinner in contact with nature.
Wake up early and take the highway to Tizimín, and head for Las Coloradas. Then go to Río Lagartos and have some delicious seafood, and you can also do a tour of the Ría. Back in Mérida, at 9 pm go to Santa Lucía park for the “Serenata Yucateca.”
Today a little bit of adventure at the Cuzamá cenotes: prepare to discover the Maya underworld. On your way back, stop at Hacienda Teya for a Yucatecan lunch. In Mérida enjoy the evening while walking around Centro, stroll around Plaza Grande and end the night with an amazing “emparedado” (sandwich) at “La Pop,” famous cafeteria for more than 45 years.
At 9:30 am take the free guided tour from Palacio Municipal on the main square of Mérida. Then do your own self-guided tour through the Centro cantinas, a great way to spend the afternoon. Be sure to try all the “botanas” with an ice cold beer!
End the week by having breakfast at any mercado or Cochinita Pibil stand, order a “torta” and some “tacos.” Later go to Progreso and enjoy the sea and sun at Silcer Beach Club. Come back to Mérida and get ready for your flight home. Come back soon!
