Catch a morning shuttle from the Progreso port to a meeting point. After greeting your guide, climb into a Mercedes Benz minivan and set off for your Uxmal shore excursion. Proceed directly to your destination with your small group of 15 people or fewer. 

Travel along the Yucatan Peninsula to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Uxmal, an ancient ceremonial center for the Mayan people nestled in the Puuc region. 

Purchase your tickets and then follow your guide on a tour through the archaeological park to see the buildings' architecture and distinctive design. See the masks of Chaac, the rain god and visit the Nunnery Quadrangle, featuring friezes of serpents and owls. Hear about the height of this city's population and activity, between AD 600 and 1000. 

At the Pyramid of the Soothsayer (Pyramid of the Magician), admire the unusual oval design. Pause before the Governor's Palace to snap photos of the frieze depicting more than a hundred images of Chaac. 

At the conclusion of your tour, climb back into your waiting vehicle and enjoy a boxed lunch with refreshments. Arrive back at the Progreso port in the afternoon.
Itinerary
Stop At:  
Zona Arqueologica Uxmal
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.
