Visit a former henequen hacienda and the impressive Uxmal!
We will begin the tour in Yaxcopoil, a hacienda of splendid country-style buildings, which, through its colonial double arch, transports us and leads to the historical periods of yesterday’s Yucatan. Yaxcopoil, which in the Mayan language means “Place of the green poplars”, gathers in its history three great periods: pre-Hispanic, colonial life, and the henequenian boom of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
The majestic main house with large halls, high ceilings, large windows, and doors, is surrounded by green gardens of great color and lush vegetation. The European atmosphere is still breathed thanks to the conservation of original furniture from that era.
You will go from the colonial to the pre-Hispanic and we will go to Uxmal, known as “The three times built”, is located in an area of hills called Puuc, which breaks the monotony of the Yucatecan plain. It consists of 15 groups of buildings, highlighting the Pyramid of the Fortune Teller (35 meters high), the Quadrangle of the Nuns, and the Governor’s Palace.
Discover the particular characteristics that make it different from the other finds in the Mayan area, such as the architectural style and the layout of the buildings, located for the observation of astronomical phenomena such as the movement of the Venus planet and taking advantage of the land to build chultunes (cisterns ingeniously built to store water,
since there are no cenotes in this area).
Recover your strength with a delicious meal at a local restaurant. Later you will have the opportunity to cool down and bathe in the beautiful Peba cenote, enjoy its beautiful view and witness the benefits that this mineral-filled water can offer your skin.
