What you'll do

We'll embark on a photo safari along the "Ruta Puuc" (Puuc route).
In this tour, you will visit the Mayan underworld in Loltún, Labná's palace, Xlapak's ancient walls, the cities of Kabah and Sayil and finally the magnificent Uxmal which, even if it is the busiest spot on the route, it is a must-visit architectural beauty.

Considered the most beautiful area in the Mayan world, this zone gets its name out of the "Puuc" architectural style, which is characteristic of this specific area. The detail of the sculpted walls, the Mayan jungle and the fact that these spots are not the most visited by tourists, make this route perfect for getting amazing pictures, no matter if you are a professional photographer, an amateur, or just wanna take cool selfies in spectacular spots.

It wouldn't be strange if, in some cases, we have the whole place for ourselves during our visit. That is a big plus for this tour because you will have the chance to get clean shots with no people interfering, also enough time to get the perfect shots of pretty uncommon spots. Believe me, you'll love it.

Where you'll be

We will meet on a specific spot in downtown Mérida and get on the vehicle that will take us to Loltún Caves. We will visit the caves with the help of a local guide who will take us to the most iconic inside the grottoes. Then we will move on to Labná and its palace, the "ancient walls" of Xlapak and then the cities of Sayil and Kabah to finish with Uxmal and board the vehicle back to our meeting point in Mérida.

This is a wonderful tour with a fantastic guide. We enjoyed the small group experience and had a great time- what a great way to experience the Ruta Puuc. We chose this tour to see the various Mayan sites, and found it really helpful to bring a book that gave some perspective. We are not big photographers but my photos turned out beautifully. Definitely worth it!
