LDS Tours Yucatán Península | LDS Tours in Cancun
The portion of land known as the Yucatan Peninsula is a territory consisting of the countries of Mexico, Belize and Guatemala. Its large area of study involves little, for this reason in this article we will only give a brief tour in the Mexican states that comprise it. Yucatan, Quintana Roo and Campeche regions are very similar, with a legacy Mayan cities still fill their customs and traditions. Among the major Mayan archaeological sites are: Chichen Itza, Uxmal, Dzibilchaltún, Mayapan, EkBalam, Izamal, Loltún, Labna, Kabah, X-Lapac (Yucatan); Edzná, Calakmul, Becan (Campeche), Koba, Tulum (Quintana Roo).
Having the opportunity to meet these spiritual centers in the Americas that possibly were visited by Christ after resurrection is amazing; do not miss the experience of close study by professionals in the field. Reach any of the sites mentioned is simple if you choose to stay in crowded cities of the Riviera Maya such as Playa del Carmen, Cancun, Puerto Morelos and Tulum. Also if you have the time to enjoy, you can request a tour to Alma’s LDS Tours to see Mérida Mormon temple located in the city downtown. We extend a very personal invitation for you and your love ones to learn from these beautiful sites with Alma’s LDS Tours with the insights of the Book of Mormon.
Mormon Temple History of Merida Yucatan
The Mérida México Mormon Temple is located in the Mexican state of Yucatán on the north end of the Yucatán Peninsula on the Gulf of Mexico. This historically rich area is the heart of Mesoamerica being in the midst of some of the world’s most renowned archaeological ruins including the famous Uxmal and Chichén Itzá Mayan ruins. Elder Carl B. Pratt of the Seventy and president of the Mexico South Area presided and spoke at the groundbreaking ceremony. He recalled that after President Hinckley’s April 1998 announcement, each of the stake presidents in Mérida hoped that a temple site in their city would be chosen. Elder Pratt said that upon knowing that “a temple would be built in Mérida, my heart was filled with joy.” “We want to establish a culture of temple attendance,” he said. “From sacrifice come blessings. I know that the construction of this temple will add to the strength of the home; it will add to the love of husbands and wives; it will add to the peace in the Yucatán Peninsula. “President Fermin Herrera of the Mérida Central stake said, “We have received an eternal hope through the atonement of Jesus Christ. Without this, the work of the temple is not possible. In this beautiful city, the sun is always radiant, but it is no more resplendent than the hearts of the saints who know that in this land of the Mayas there will be built a House of the Lord. “Also speaking was Brother Abel Ordaz, the first president of the Mérida stake. He recalled the 1959 dedication of the first meetinghouse and the later dedication of the first stake center. He recognized the symbolism of the building of the temple. As old buildings are demolished and removed to make way for the new, so must members “demolish the barrier of unbelief, and have faith in the Lord. As the old material is removed, so must the sins be removed through repentance. As the ground is cleared and made clean for construction, so must livesbe made clean through baptism. Then, just as construction commences, also begins the growth of the delicious fruit, the word of God” (Church News, 30 January 1999). “I know your lives are busy. I know that you have much to do. But I make you a promise that if you will go to the house of the Lord, you will be blessed; life will be better for you.” — Gordon B. Hinckley
