Stop At: Zona Arqueologica Uxmal, Carretera Federal No. 261, Uxmal 97899 Mexico
Take a shuttle at 8:30am from the Progreso port to a specific meeting point. There, meet your guide and climb into a luxurious Mercedes Benz minivan and begin your shore excursion to Uxmal. Sit back in your plush reclining seat as your small group is transferred directly to your destination – without the hassle of tourist stopovers along the way!
Drive along the Yucatan Peninsula to Uxmal, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and legendary ceremonial center of the ancient Maya, set amid hills in the Puuc (Mayan for ‘mountain range’) region. Upon arrival, tour the archeological park (entrance doens't include) with your professional guide, who will inform your small group about the distinctive architecture and decorative design of the buildings. Learn about the city that flourished from 600-1,000 AD with 25,000 Mayan inhabitants at its height.
Admire impressive structures designed with geometrical figures and the masks of the rain god Chaac, the Mayan’s most significant deity. Visit the Nunnery Quadrangle, whose friezes represent owls and serpents, as your guide explains the significance of the four multi-level buildings arranged around Uxmal’s central plaza.
Marvel at the Pyramid of the Magician (the Pyramid of the Soothsayer), unique in its precise oval-shaped design. On the façade of the Governor’s Palace, whose central doorway astronomically aligns with the planets, you’ll see a frieze with more than 100 images of Chaac.
On your return, enjoy a boxed lunch and soft drinks aboard the minivan, arriving at the port of Progreso at 2:30pm.

We were quite fortunately to meet with Mr Jose Garcia who was very professional, polite,courteous and very personal to take care of our family very well on Nov 22. I strongly recommended Mr. Garcia to any travelers who will go to Progreso and to take the tour in Progreso. I can guarantee that Mr. Garcia will take a good care of you and your family.
