Day 1. Explore the historic center
Start your adventure on the right foot in the heart of Merida: the historic center. Here you will find period architectural wonders such as the Casa de Montejo, a Spanish Renaissance jewel, with centuries of history in every brick.
Continue your tour to the majestic Cathedral of San Idelfonso, an impressive Baroque masterpiece — the first cathedral built in mainland America and also the oldest cathedral in all of Mexico.
For art lovers, the Museum of Contemporary Art and the Olimpo Cultural Center are must-sees. With their collections and permanent and traveling exhibitions, they are spaces for cultural impact, learning, and letting the imagination run wild.
At night, enjoy the shows in the main square, or explore the local gastronomy among classic and international restaurants, bakeries, candy stores, and more.
Day 2. Visit Chichen Itza
On your second day, venture beyond Merida and visit one of the most important archaeological sites in Mexico: Chichen Itzá. Let the grandeur of this ancient Mayan city, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, amaze you beyond all doubt. Explore the Temple of Kukulcan, the Temple of the Warriors, and the Ball Court. Immerse yourself in the fascinating history of this lost civilization.
After traveling back in time, immerse yourself in a natural wonder by visiting one of the nearby cenotes. These gifts of nature are freshwater wells that were formed in underground caves hundreds of years ago and that remain as captivating today as the first day.
