First, take a sight-seeing tour of Merida, known as "The White City", one of the oldest and most commemorated cities founded in the middle of an ancient Mayan city called T'ho.
Take a panoramic tour along the most important boulevard in the city of Mérida where the wealthy "divine caste" of Spanish descendants lived and built their mansions on a street designed like the "Champs Elysees" of Paris. Then we make our way to "The Golden City" of Izamál which was originally founded by the Mayans in the fifth century A.D.
The majority of Izamál’s streets are lined with houses built only a few years after the Spanish conquest. While there is much of both the Mexican and Mayan cultures in evidence here, our tour will focus on the Spanish Colonial aspects of this city. Tour the town in horse-drawn carriages, (known here as Victorias) and pass by such sights as the Izamál City Hall, which dates from the 18th century and is the largest building of its kind in the Yucatán.
Note: Wear walking shoes, sunscreen and/or a hat, light-colored loose fitting cotton clothes.
