According to Mayan belief, the underground rivers were sacred and meant to cleanse body and soul. Valladolid is a bustling Mayan city with a special colonial flavor.

You will surely get a sense of the laid-back pace of life. Optional lunch at the Meson del Marques Restaurant. Arrival at the Hacienda Chichén Resort in Chichén-Itzá.

Breakfast at the Hacienda Temozón. Morning departure for the archeological zone of Uxmal. Guided visit to the archeological site of Uxmal with its Pyramid of the Magician or Dwarf, the Nunnery Quadrangle and the Temple of Turtles. Uxmal means "'built three times" in the Mayan language, and though its name is a mystery, its beauty is not. As a World Heritage site, it is one of the best restored and maintained ruins in the Yucatan, and certainly one of the most magnificent. Its architecture, some of the most majestic of the Yucatan ruins, is characterized by low horizontal palaces set around courtyards, decorated with rich sculptural elements and details. Uxmal was the greatest metropolitan and religious center in the Puuc hills in the late classical period. It thrived between the 7th and 10th century A.D. and its numerous architectural styles reflect a number of building phases. Just before the lunch we will have an unforgettable experience in the Caves of Lol-Tún (“Stone Flower.”) After lunch, visit to the archeological zones of the Puuc Route. The Puuc Route is located throughout the unique mountain range of the Peninsula of Yucatan, the Mountain range of Ticul. The Puuc style is defined by a civilization obsessed with the adoration of the God of the Rain, Chaac. We will visit the archaeological zones of: Labná with its majestic Arc; the Palace of the Nine Rooms in Xlapak, which is totally covered with beautiful masks of Chaac, the majestic Palace of Sayil and the Palace Codz Poop in Kabáh.
