The unique stalactite caverns or cenotes, the “eyes of the earth”, are fantastic place for diving or snorkeling.
Coba is the ancient city, drown in the subtropical jungle. Bicycle city tour. Arrival to Merida, a picturesque colonial city, the capital of the state of Yucatan.
Day 2: Merida – Chichen Itza – Ek Balam – Cancun.
Departure from Merida to Chichen Itza. Magicians, scientists, and the ball players – only the selected ones were able to access to this special landscape of the white stone and of the “eyes” of the earth – the underground lakes. Temples, which are considered as belonging to the classical and post-classical periods did not arrive to see Spanish as were abounded by its population because of unknown reasons. Arch-astronomy was born in one of such cities. Philosophy and history as one. View the Pyramid of Kukulkan, “the feathered serpent”, of the ball games field, of the observatory etc.
Ek Balam, the place of the exclusive tourism, is the archeological center with its fantastic discoveries of the last decades. It has turned upside down the usual understanding of the Mayan culture. Only the “Kremlin” is open to our view while the rest of the city is resting under the jungle cover. You will see Acropolis, Ball Game field, The Twin Buildings, Observatory, and Temascal. Swimming in the cenote of Ik-Kil, “a place where the wind is being born”, and the Yucatan most beautiful karsts lake.
Return to Cancun.
