Spend the morning snorkeling the coral reef at Punta Nizuc and the Nizuc gallery of impressive sunken statues that form part of the Cancun Museum of Underwater Art (MUSA). There are four galleries to explore in the bay between Isla Mujeres and Cancun and at Punta Nizuc.
An hour’s drive south of Mérida, Uxmal is one of the loveliest ancient cities in the Maya World. Its architectural wonders include the Magician’s Pyramid, the Nuns’ Quadrangle, which is a courtyard surrounded by four palaces, the Palace of the Governor, casa de la Tortuga, the Gran Piramide and El Palomar. If you decide to overnight in one of the nearby hotels in order to explore the other archaeological sites on the Puuc Route in the morning, it is worth returning to Uxmal in the evening to see the new video mapping.
Your Concierge can help you book day trips to these attractions and many more throughout the Mexican Caribbean and Yucatan.
