Join us on Monday, Dec. 18 to explore the ancient city of Uxmal, including a section recently opened to the public, stunning Palomar and its grand palace.
El Palomar is a massive architectural complex in Uxmal that was home to the elite as early as the 7th Century. The Palace at El Palomar features striking crestwork, mosaics, and several impressive adjacent structures.
We will also visit the rest of the site, emphasizing recent discoveries and excavations, which are plentiful.
After visiting Uxmal, we will travel 20 minutes to Kabah and take in this ancient city’s beauty. Archaeologists posit that Kabah was the first true power in the Puuc region.
For 2,500 pesos, the tour includes all transportation, tickets, lunch at a Yucatecan restaurant, bottled water along the way, and the guiding services of Yucatán Magazine Senior Editor Carlos Rosado van der Gracht — a certified INAH guide and Ph.D. candidate in the field of Heritage Studies.
