Uxmal & Kabah Tour

by Gray Line Merida Duration 9h 20m Free cancellation available No booking or credit card fees
per adult Price is AU$100

Spend a day exploring the Maya metropolis of Uxmal and the excavated temples at Kabah. Walk the sabecs (pathways), stand before the Pyramid of the Magician and marvel at the ornate carvings on the Palace of the Masks.

Admire the UNESCO World Heritage Site at Uxmal, where the well-preserved temples and grounds provide a genuine feel for what life was once like at this ceremonial centre.

Walk across the ball court, where a ritual Mesoamerican ball game was played. At the stepped Pyramid of the Magician, learn about the Maya folklore of the temple – legend holds that it was built overnight during a series of magical challenges between a king and a dwarf. Relish a delectable lunch at either the Hacienda Uxmal or in the Lodge of Uxmal's gardens.

Next, make your way to Kabah – the 2 sites are connected via an 11-mile (18 km) pedestrian path or sabec – and stand before the dizzying façade of the Palace of the Masks. With no freshwater cenotes welling up from the ground in this part of the Yucatán, the Maya here relied solely on rain.

Before heading back to Merida, enjoy the pool and gardens of the beautiful Hacienda Uxmal Hotel.

We really enjoyed Uxmal & Kabah. We could have skipped Choco-Story, but I'm not sure you can when you book this tour? Uxmal is quiet, no crowds which we were SO grateful for as the crowds, vendors at Chichen were just terrible! Uxmal is more "spiritual " if that's a good term? We could have definitely skipped the Choco story as we already knew most of this story. We loved our lunch at the beautiful resort at Uxmal.
