Description


Visit the lovely city of Merida and experience an incredible Mexican folkloric and equestrian show when your Carnival cruise calls in Progreso. Your excursion begins with a 30 minute transfer to the city of Merida. It is often dubbed the White City because of the large amount of limestone originally used to build the old colonial buildings and also because of the clean streets and sidewalks throughout the city. Your expert guide will give you a brief introduction to the important landmarks as you ride through the city aboard a comfortable air conditioned motor coach. From its old colonial buildings to the new cosmopolitan developments, Merida is a grand city where two cultures meet and create a diverse civilization. You will visit the grandiose Governor's Palace and the famous Merida cathedral in the city's heart, the Plaza de la Independencia. The plaza is full of residents and tourists alike, enjoying the palm tree lined promenades and community scene. Afterwards, enjoy plenty of shopping time at a nearby market located inside of a converted old 19th century building before heading to the Rancho Tierra Bonita for an incredible show. A 15 minute drive into the Yucatan countryside will bring you to the spectacular Rancho Tierra Bonita where a full Mexican buffet feast awaits your arrival. Fill your plate with delicious and authentic Mexican fare and quench your thirst with free unlimited “Ajua margaritas” beer, and refreshing soft drinks. Take a break before the song and dance to shop for local handicrafts from genuine Mexican silver to colorful outfits and souvenirs or take a cool plunge in the swimming pool area, available for all guests. Take a seat for the afternoon's entertainment as Mexican charros sing and dance as the present a colorful folkoric ballet and incredible musical horse show. The charros are traditional horsemen from Mexico who learn equestrian skills traditional to a Mexican rodeo. The children in the audience will be invited to participate in a piñata party where they can break open a traditional Mexican piñata made of paper mache filled with sweets ( when we have a party larger than 8 ).
