What people are saying about Mérida

Superb day with our great guide Jorge who speaks Spanish, English and French. The visit to the magnificent site of Uxmal really seduced us in comparison to Chichen Itza (made with another agency) and Jorge's explanations were very rich and well distributed during the visit! The Sotatu de Péon hacienda is very beautiful and far from the tourist crowds that we had encountered previously. We particularly appreciated the demonstration of the process of transforming Sisal into fibre, using the original machines. To end this day in style, we went by small train pulled by horses to the private cenote of the estate and there were only 2 of us in the water! The cenote is entirely underground and by far the one I enjoyed the most during our stay in the Yucatan. We are unanimous in saying that this day is the most beautiful of our 15 days of visit and we highly recommend this excursion with Jorge!

La mejor actividad de Mérida. Visitamos Uxmal, un sitio arqueológico en plena reconstrucción. El guia fue majestuoso y pudo explicarnos a detalles de forma inmersiva la cultura Maya en la zona llamda "Ruta Puuc". La hacienda Sotuta magnífica. Un vestigio de nuestra historia y la comida deliciosa. Lo recomiendo. The best activity from Merida. We visited Uxmal, an archaeological site in full reconstruction. The guide was majestic and was able to explain to us in detail in an immersive way the Mayan culture in the area called "Ruta Puuc". The magnificent Sotuta Hacienda. A vestige of our history and delicious food. I recommend it.

Great trip, I can only recommend Uxmal, it's a pity you don't have that much time to take pictures in peace. Emilio is going through this a bit too quickly. The stop at the honey bees is not absolutely necessary. The hacienda is a well-preserved (restored) specimen prepared especially for the tourists. The cenote is ok, nothing special. The mule train transport is really cool.

The guide was very friendly and punctual, the places we visited were also extraordinary: both Uxmal and the Sotuta de Peón hacienda have everything to spend an unforgettable day. The food they gave us was also very tasty, with several dishes to choose from. :)

the guide Jorge is really great. His knowledge of the places we visited is very much appreciated. thank you for this wonderful day.
