I am planning a trip for my family (me + husband + 2-year-old) for the end of October/beginning of November. We are flying into Merida, and staying there for 3 nights. We then want to check out some of the Starwood Haciendas before finishing up our trip in Tulum and flying out of Cancun. Our goal is to not have too much driving in any given day.
I'm thinking that from Merida, we head south to either Hacienda Santa Rosa or Hacienda Temozon. We'll likely want to visit to Uxmal. I see that Temozon is closer to Uxmal, but I'm thinking that Santa Rosa sounds a lot more special. Anyone have opinions on that, especially where a toddler who takes a long mid-day nap comes into the equation?
After heading south, it looks like we'll have to backtrack a bit back through Merida. I'm thinking we either then go stay at Hacienda San Jose for a night or we push on through to Chitzen Itza and stay there a night, check it out early in the AM and then head on to Tulum. Again, thoughts on that itinerary?
