Magic of Dizbichaltun, Progreso and Uaymitun: Set eyes upon some of the most impressive Mayan constructions on this one of a kind tour to the ancient astronomical centre Dzibilchaltun and the world renowned Temple of the Seven Dolls. Travel through time to forlorn ages and learn all about the fascinating culture of the Mayans, a world filled with precocious astronomical understanding combined with human sacrifices to the gods.
Begin by hopping onto our comfortable transport that will take you far away from all your day to day worries and the hustle and the bustle of big cities to immerse you in the stillness of ancient stone. Along the way, you can sit back and relax as you gaze through your window at the astonishing landscapes rolling majestically by.
Once you arrive at the astonishing Dzibilchaltun, explore the fascinating Temple of the Seven Dolls, one of the most famous vestiges of the Mayan age. Continue then to meander around an underground river shrouded in otherworldly beauty. These are known to the locals as “cenotes”, large underground pools wherein the Mayans would cast their human sacrifices to appease the wrath of the gods.
Next stop is the tower observatory of Uaymitun, located close to the sea. There you will be able to admire marvelous pink flamingos in their natural habitat as well as many other kinds of beautiful birds.
