3 Days Northern Yucatan LDS Circuit Tour - Ask for price and Details


Day 1

EZDNA (THE HOUSE OF THE WISE MEN)

This tour is geared for LDS travelers staying in Cancun, Playa del Carmen, the Riviera Maya, Cozumel or Tulum who would like to learn a great deal more about the spectacular Mayan ruins of the Yucatan Peninsula. This is a 3- day journey through the península visiting the sites of most interest to LDS travelers due to their close connection with the events described in the Book of Mormon.

This impressive archeological zone is very interesting because of the many technological advances that have been discovered on the site in the last few years, created by the Mayas who inhabited the site during ancient times. These included an advanced water transport system where a network of canalran through the valley and the water was conducted towards a lagoon that had been made into a dam using retaining walls. Other canals were used for crop irrigation. This canal system created an optimum degree of moisture in the earth for intensive cultivation. The canals also provided abundant fishing besides being used as a means of boat transportation.

Edzna is one of the few cities found in the Yucatan Peninsula that dates back to the year 400 B.C., an era that certainly interesting for all LDS visitors to learn about.

Let yourself be guided by the experience of the professional LDS guides from LDS Tours Cancun By Mormon Encounter. These well-informed guides know the site and its history, as well as archeological details that provide such a deep vision that will recapture a glorious era from the Book of Mormon.

Day 2

EZDNA (THE HOUSE OF THE WISE MEN)

Our second stop is to the beautiful Mayan ruins of Uxmal, a place as lovely, is exceptional. Its name means “Constructed Three Times”. The oval-shaped buildings give the site a unique style, and its “Puuc” style decoration provides valuable information on religious symbolism, its uses, and customs, which the entire staff of professional guides from LDS Tours Cancun By Mormon Encounter thoroughly know how to interpret.

On second day we will also visit the stately ruins of Kabah, which in the Mayan language means “The Lord of the Strong and Mighty Hand”. It is a place that was first inhabited in the 3rd Century BC, even though the majority of what is visible in Kabah today was built between the 7th and 11th Century AD. The Mayan tradition to build on top of what has already been constructed carries us back to a past that is closely connected to many of the main events occuring in the Book of Mormon.

We invite you to come and visit the best religious archeology found in Uxmal and Kabah, brought to life by the main experts on the Book of Mormon archeology of the Yucatan Peninsula.

Day 3

CHICHEN ITZA AND EK BALAM

Named one of the seven new wonders of the modern world, Chichen Itza is one of the those enigmatic cities where the veil of the apostasy still covers the vestiges that have been found on the site.

Only LDS Tours Cancun By Mormon Encounter and their Specialized Guides will lead you to know the secrets and mysteries surrounding this city in ruins that was occupied from 450-1200 AD. It is one of the most telling testimonies of the spiritual fall of a once just and noble people, at the same time that it is one of the best sites to display the visible splendor of what is today called the Mayan culture.

In contrast to Chichen Itza, which is first visited, the Mayan city of Ek Balam was occupied from the year 300 BC. Located just 30 km. from the colonial city of Valladolid, it is one of the few ruins on the Yucatan Peninsula that originated during the Pre-Classic period.

Find out about its history, tombs, temples, and famous rulers from the perspective of a LDS guide who will most certainly win you over and awaken your interest in the study of the Book of Mormon and its relation to Mesoamerica.
