We’ll begin in the amazing archaeological site of Kabah, in the Puuc Route. Take your time to take plenty of pictures by the wall of masks depicting the rain god Chaac, but not too long, as the Choco-Story eco-museum awaits. Spend the night in either Muna or go straight to Sotuta de Peón.
A dream day awaits in Sotuta de Peón: do the henequen tour (and don’t skip the cenote swim), and then enjoy a nice meal at their restaurant. Take your time and stop at some of the villages along the way to Mérida and try a local snack; you’ll surely find fruit, tamales, or a nice pastry.
How about a tour of Mérida’s Municipal Market, Lucas de Gálvez? If you’d like to discover our most authentic flavors and dishes, take a guided tour; Vicente Esparza (WhatsApp: 999 352 8266) is an excellent, certified bilingual guide. Later, visit some of the home museums along Paseo de Montejo, like El Minaret and Montejo 495, and stop by Posheria to try some local liqueurs (or coffee!).
Treat yourself to a traditional breakfast of Huevos Motuleños at Siqueff and then tour the Palacio de la Música museum. Then, we’re off to lunch at Hacienda Xcanatun; don’t forget to ask for a guided tour of the facilities before you leave. Then we’re going north to enjoy a spectacular sunset at Progreso’s Malecón Tradicional.
Get your day off to a great start with a swim in the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico, combined with either walking or soaking up the sun on the beach. Once energized, venture out to explore all of Progreso’s sights: the Meteorite Museum, the Malecón Internacional.
You don’t have to part ways with the beach just yet, as our tour continues on the coast. Visit the archaeological site of Xcambó; on your way there, drive carefully, and ask your passengers to keep an eye on their surroundings, as they may spot a flamingo, or maybe even a dinosaur (yes, seriously!). If you see a coconut stand, absolutely do stop and try a Cremita, a slice of pie, or a frozen coconut.
Learning about the species of bees native to Yucatán and trying the different kinds of honey they produce: doesn’t that sound great? Spend the day at Apiturismo Sinanché, a great experience for the entire family. Tip: Book in advance and get the option that includes lunch.
