Day 2 - 3
Today you will travel to Merida. En route, you will stop at the Mayan Indian market where you can see contemporary and traditional arts and crafts. Next you will head to the archaeological site of Chichen Itza, one of the most important sites in the Mayan culture. During the Maya-Toltec period, Chichen Itza quickly developed into a major ceremonial center. The temple of Kukulcan-Quetzalcoatl is one of the outstanding structures that you will visit from this period.
After lunch, you will move on to the beautiful capital of the Yucatan, Merida. Your afternoon will be free to enjoy the many shops, museums, and plazas of this charming colonial city, home to the descendants of Mayan civilizations.
