    The experience at this special place was above and beyond- The grounds are beautiful and the tour of this restored Hacienda as a living museum is both educational and magical at the same time. The tour guide was fun and lively and ended with a ride on wagons along track pulled by mules with a swim in a pristine Cenote. If you want to stay overnight they have beautiful casitas that are luxuriously appointed and the food was true to the Yucatan area and delicious. The grounds and walking paths are equally pristine
    I highly recommend a trip to this wonderful place-

    A beautiful street for walking. Has lots of restaurants and shopping. We went for Sunday brunch at Rosas and Xocalate.

    This is a great little site. City is compact and very much like a mini Chichen Itza. A near complete observatory you can walk through and a good sized 4 sided pyramid you can climb. Loved this site. You may even have the site to yourself, no crowds.
    It may not be worth the 8 hour round trip from Cancun, but if you are in Merida, near Uxmal, or going to Campeche it is not far.

    We stopped at Kabáh and Sayil. They are way more accessible than the larger archaeological sites. We didn’t see any other tourists. You may a small fee at the entrance. There was a guide available at Kabáh but just a groundskeeper at Sayil. The sites closed to visitors at 4 pm

    A very large plaza that overlooks the cathedral. At night it has many things going on. One night it has a video on the front of the cathedral and another night a Pok ta Pok game. Of course they have many venders wanting to sell you something. There are many good restaurants in the area-- especially--Matilda.

    It was much larger than I expected it to be. It dwarfs the surrounding buildings and is breathtaking. You can go inside in the evenings - sometime around 5 to 6. We heard different times from the locals. It just re-opened for the first time in 2 years for a Mayan festival.

    I would plan 2 hours for this stop. It starts with a sort of “where are they now” and goes back to the Mayan origin story (Popul Vuh). Many many artifacts, including pottery and carvings from precious stones. I didn’t see anything like that at the archaeological sites.

    Beautiful crystal blue water in a cave. Cenotes were our favorite part of visiting Mexico. Here you can visit two very different cenotes in one trip.

    We didn't have much time to see everything due to our tour itinerary but what we did was very interesting. The home is furnished with some really extravagant pieces and the information that lines the exhibits was great. A lot to see and read, way more than we had time for. Definitely a beautiful place. I'd like to go back to spend more time. If you go, take a mask. They are still observing COVID protocols which include masking and social distancing between groups. You will be escorted by a museum usher. Make sure not to step outside the metal walkways!, They really frown on that.

    2 storeys of rooms furnished in late 1800 spanish style, showing how wealthy industrialists lived during the henequen heyday . The house is privately owned and still in use today. Well kept artifacts, furniture and art work

    We took a carriage ride and saw the monument. It was very impressive. It is a must to see in Merida. Some of the other statues are very dirty.

    Nice tour of the property which gives you a very good understanding how a plantation was run. A buffet lunch is provided with plenty of options to select from.

    Beautifully laid out and very informative. Go on a cooler day bc the main exhibit hall is quite warm. Also, it is only open on weekdays. Hidden bonus is there is a free bathroom that is quite clean!

    Nobody told us about this museum and we fortunately found it through TripAdvisor. This is a must see and listen. The history of Mexican music brilliantly presented through sound,visuals, interviews and holograms. Highly recommended
