    What to Expect
    Depart from Merida in an air-conditioned minivan to the first stop on your archeological adventure. Arrive at Kabah, a prosperous Mayan city that flourished around the year 800 AD, to discover more about the renowned Puuc architectural style. 

    Follow your guide to a selection of noteworthy structures and listen as he explains the historical and cultural significance of their features. Admire Kabah’s picturesque Palace and marvel at the impressive façade of the Palace of the Masks, famed for its 250 strong compilation of rain god depictions. Gaze at magnificent monuments of prominent Mayan figures as your guide directs your attention to the intricate stone carvings of the statues.  

    Wander beneath the dramatic Arch of Kabal as your guide leads you down the ancient and ambient path that connects Kabah to Uxmal. Return to your minivan for the short drive to the UNESCO World Heritage site of Uxmal to enjoy a 3-hour exploration of the ancient Mayan city. 

    Note the prominence of the Mayan deity Chaac, god of rain, through the countless masks and sculptures that decorate Uxmal’s sacred structures. Visit the Nunnery Quadrangle to learn the meaning behind serpentine symbols and absorb the ethereal atmosphere at the Pyramid of the Magician as your guide unravels a complex and captivating history. On the façade of the Governer’s Palace, observe more than 100 images of Chaac and appreciate the astronomical precision of the central doorway. 

    Afterward, awaken your senses to the gorgeous sights and smells of Hacienda Uxmal Hotel’s botanical garden. Dine on a delicious lunch of regional and international specialties before relaxing on the return-trip to Merida.

    Happy to help. I don't remember what the entrance fee is. To be honest, I don't recall paying for anything other than a tip at lunch. I think the tour was all inclusive. Please let me know if you have other questions.
