I am hoping folks will have some suggestions on our four-night stay in Merida next month. We arrive in Merida on Thursday night after driving from Xcalak that day. We'll have all day Friday, Saturday, and Sunday in Merida, and need to drive to Cancun for our flight out on Monday. We're planning on Noche Mexicana on Saturday night and Domingo en Merida on Sunday. But we also want to tour Uxmal and Sotuta de Peon, which we'll need to do on Friday and Saturday.
Are we leaving ourselves enough time to see Merida itself?
Is a visit to Uxmal better on Friday than Saturday?
Are Uxmal and Sotuta de Peon reasonably doable in 1 day, returning to Merida by dark?
We're staying in the Santiago neighborhood and will have our three girls, ages 10-15 with us. Any words of wisdom would be greatly appreciated.
