DAY 2: UXMAL – KANKIRIXCHE CENOTE – YAXCOPOIL HACIENDA

7:00 a. m.: Breakfast at the hotel.

8:00 a. m.: On our way back to Yucatan, we will visit the Archaeological Zone of Uxmal, which in Mayan means "three times built". Uxmal, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, is considered the most important city in the Puuc region, where the buildings are decorated with Chac "God of Rain" masks. We will visit the Pyramid of the Magician, the Quadrangle of the Nuns and the Governor's Palace.

To cool down a little bit after visiting Uxmal, nothing better than to immerse ourselves in the crystalline waters of one of the 7,000 cenotes that are estimated to exist in the Yucatan Peninsula, the Kankirixche cenote in Abala, where we can also admire stalactites, stalagmites and columns that have taken a long time to develop. The cenotes are wells of water called ts'onot "cavern of water" by the Mayans.

Finally, after relaxing, we will go to Yaxcopoil Hacienda, where we will take a tour of its facilities and we will get to know a very important part of the recent past of Yucatan, inscribed in the henequen haciendas. The henequen or sisal, was for many decades the engine of the peninsular economy. Time to eat. In the afternoon we will return to the city of Merida.
