Uxmal & Hacienda Yaxcopoil

Uxmal is a UNESCO World Heritage site and provides a striking contrast to Chichen Itzá.  For some, the intricate and ornate pyramids, temples and other ceremonial structures at Uxmal represent the pinnacle of Maya art, design and architecture.  This Puuc city and its surrounding towns also demonstrate the social and economic structure of Maya society.  En route to Uxmal, we visit Hacienda Yaxcopoil— an unvarnished former large landed-estate, which speaks to the complex history of henequen (a hemp-like fiber) production in the Yucatan.
