This tour is not suitable for anyone with mobility difficulties as in the caverns you need to negotiate boulders and steps.

This tour includes a visit from your hotel in Mérida, Yucatan to the Loltun Caves ( Loltun means “stone flower”). The Loltun caves are the largest caves on the Yucatan peninsula.
A special feature in the caves are columns that can be “played” like musical instruments. Your tour will take you from cathedral-like underground spaces, to dry riverbeds, beautiful glittering stalagmites that look like frozen fountains, and much more including fresco paintings on the walls, “hands in negative”, faces, animals, and decorative figures.

Uxmal, said to mean “built three times”, is a UNESCO World Heritage site and one of the most restored and best maintained Mayan archaeological zones. Its architecture, among the most majestic in Yucatan, is characterized by low palaces decorated with very detailed sculptures, positioned around large patios. Uxmal was the largest metropolitan and religious center of the Puuc region in the late Classic period. It flourished between the 7th and 10th centuries, and its diverse architectural styles demonstrate the many periods of its construction. The legend of Uxmal tells that it was build by a dwarf with magical powers. Definitely a highlight worth visiting in Yucatan.

The tour goes everyday with a minimum of 4 persons.
