We will start this beautiful day by picking you up at the meeting point, the objective is to arrive at the archaeological zone of Chichen Itza early, since it is the most visited, at that time we will find fewer people and we will take advantage of the morning that is cool and not so hot, inside from the area we will explain the importance of this great Mayan city. Then we will continue to refresh ourselves in the cool and crystalline waters of a cenote that belongs to a Mayan community and that is surrounded by abundant vegetation, flowers and birds, the Mayan community also has a restaurant where they offer a great variety of typical regional food, as well. as well as vegetarian options. After lunch we will continue to the magical city of Izamal known as the city of the three cultures due to its pre-Hispanic, conquest and modern past. We will visit the Mayan temple of Kinich kak mo which we will be able to climb to the top, the convent and its beautiful streets. At the end we will return to the city of Merida

Simulated life experience of real Mayan culture. Beautiful in every respect. Sunday is free admission. Every exhibit was a work of art and worth seeing.

We left this museum for the last day of our visit to Merida, such a shame. This is a super interactive museum, with presentation rooms and A LOT to see. Its a bit far from the center but worth the taxi/uber ride.

This was the first museum I visited in Merida before going out to Chichen Itza, Uxmal and Kabah. I had to take a cab from my hotel in the center and takes about 20 minutes driving from the center. It gives a detailed explanation of Mayan life and I found it very interactive. Signage was good in Spanish and English. I spent about 2.5 hours here and was impressed.

This is a really wonderful museum, which should come as no surprise - Mexican anthropological museums are uniformly great. Displays are beautifully and evocatively executed. Want to know more? Just open a drawer below the display and you'll be presented with more objects than would fit in the display above. I actually can't believe they allow this!

This museum had a remarkably thorough history of the Mayan civilization before, during, and after the arrival of the Spanish. There is a wealth of knowledge of the culture, science, language and people of the Mayan civilization.
