One of the main attractions of our tours to Izamal is the visit of archaeological sites. This colonial city was built over an ancient Mayan city, earning it the names "The City of the Three Cultures" and "City of the Hills" due to the pyramids that were present when the Spanish arrived and were covered by them. Therefore, you can find impressive Mayan ruins.
According to Mayan folklore, the god Kinich came down in the form of a macaw to cleanse offerings made to the Mayan gods with fire, giving this place its name, "Fire Macaw with Solar Eyes/Face." The pyramid offers incredible views of the city and the surrounding landscape. Tours in Izamal take you on a journey through time as you explore the ancient ruins and learn about the Mayan civilization that once thrived here.
But Izamal isn't just about ancient history. One of the city's most charming attractions is its traditional horse-drawn carriages, known as calesas. Tours in Izamal often include a ride on one of these beautifully decorated carriages, which take you on a leisurely tour of the city's streets and plazas.
