  • From the first time that I had the privilege of knowing the route puuc (in jeep by muddy gap, with Mayan Guide) for 35 years, so far I feel an obligation to go to the yucatan peninsula and travel the Puuc route increasingly more in love with the exquisiteness of Labná, overwhelmed by the reconstruction of Kabah and Sayil and Xlapac taste and the forest around all crowned by the spectacular architecture of Uxmal. We surprised at the strength of the Sun and the neglect of the tourists in General, more convenient is hat in time of visor or cap base ball and pants and long sleeve shirt instead of shorts and t-shirt, recommended good shoes for walking and liquids to stay hydrated throughout the day, time that should last him the ride.

  • This area the "Puuc" is great, I recommend visiting it, is a great experience, I recommend to start the tour by the caves of loltún, then go for the entire route knowing the other small Mayan towns, and ultimately end up with the archaeological site "uxmal" to see the spectacle of lights at night... in short was a magical day.
