Azulik Uh May
March 6, 2019 by Elizabeth Reyes
Immerse your senses in this carefully thought out elemental architecture and design art piece in the middle
of the Mayan jungle. Smoke fills the air with the scent of Copal as you enter a vortex like tree branch tunnel
that opens to a bridge that leads you to the building. You come upon a circular door the swings open as
they request that you remove your shoes and automatically you feel the raw elements underneath your
feet. The smooth cement walls spiral which lead you, up or down, by the same tree branch path. In the
distance you hear the trickle of water and you feel a cool breeze of air and I can’t forget to mention the fire
pit in all of this.
This trip is about an hour southwest of Playa Del Carmen in the city of Francisco Uh May and it’s worth the
drive. There is plenty of shopping to do and great spots to stop and eat at along the way.
Make it a nice day trip and start out early and drive to Coba and on your way back stop at the museum. There
are plenty of cenotes on the side of the road to take a refreshing dip in after you’ve visited Coba and the
museum so take advantage while you are out in that area because it’s not a close trip from Cancun or Playa Del
Here are a few rules of the museum…
- For safety reasons you must be 18 years or older to enter.
- Remove your shoes before entering.
- The only camera you’re are allowed is your cell phone.
- Bags larger then 40 x 40 cm are not allowed in the museum.
- No food or drinks are allowed in the museum.
