Uxmal & Kabah
Uxmal means “‘built three times” in the Mayan language, and though its name is a mystery, its beauty is not. As a World Heritage site, it is one of the best restored and maintained ruins on the Yucatan Peninsula, and certainly one of the most magnificent. Its architecture is characterized by low horizontal palaces set around courtyards, decorated with rich sculptural elements and details depicting the rain god Chaac. Explore the wonderful buildings, including the House of the Magician – which dominates the site, the Nunnery, and the House of Turtles. Continue to Kabah, with its amazing Palace of the Masks, covered in nearly 300 masks of Chaac. Lunch included.
