After patiently waiting to explore, we were inspired to create the ultimate seven-day stay in Yucatán. We’re passionate about showing people the best of our state, but please continue to wear a mask and travel responsibly. This way we can help strengthen our local economy and keep our communities healthy.
Welcome to Yucatán! Check into Hotel Mansión Mérida where you’ll receive the royal treatment at this charming Casona turned hotel. Then spend the day discovering the Centro and iconic Paseo de Montejo, stopping in at tempting shops, restaurants, and cafés.
Start the day early and go to Ek Balam. Once you’ve explored the archaeological site, you’ll be desperate to cool off – good thing cenote X’Canché is right on site! After a swim, make your way to Valladolid to experience this colonial gem.
Have a delicious breakfast at K’uxub in Valladolid and drive to the majestic site of Chichén Itzá. When you finish, you can either go to Tsukán Santuario de Vida, or check into Hotel Hacienda Chichén before the evening sound and light show, Noches de Kukulkán.
Return to Mérida early in the morning to continue sightseeing the city. On the list for today: Barrio de Santa Lucía with its magnificent restaurants, architecture, and shopping; and Santiago with its galleries and vibrant market.
Explore the Convent Route. Start with Acanceh’s Plaza de las Tres Culturas. Then, move on to Tecoh to see the church and proceed to visit the archaeological site of Mayapán. Make sure to make a stop in picturesque Mama before finishing the tour in Maní.
Spend your day adventuring at some of the Maya sites on the Puuc Route. Puuc means hill in Maya, and the zone is known with this name because of the distinct topography of the south of the state. Highlights include the Loltún caves, Labná, Xlapak, Sayil, Kabah, and Uxmal.
You have to experience our beaches! Start with a drive to Xcambó, you’ll likely be one of only a handful of visitors. Then, drive down the coastal highway until you reach Progreso, where you can enjoy the beach and delicious seafood.
