The Chichen Itza Tour is three times memorable:

Sacred Cenote SuyTun

You will start your day being picked up at the agreed meeting point or at your hotel.

The first stop of the tour will be at the SuyTun Ecotourism Center to discover the spectacular SuyTun cenote. Its name means “Stone Center”, it is a cenote with a huge stone vault full of stalactites and an entrance of light, which highlights the blue of the waters and gives it an atmosphere of mystery and unheard beauty.

In this cenote you can swim in its cold waters or take advantage of the central platform of the cenote to take truly memorable photos. You will feel like in a fantasy movie.

The next stop will be at one of the nodes of the Mayan culture: Chichen Itza .

Explore Chichen Itza

This archeological zone is one of the best known in the country and one of the most important in the Yucatan Peninsula since it is a very clear example of the architecture, design and mystique of the Maya. Its name means “mouth of the well (Chichen) of the water sorcerers (Itzá)” and was named a World Heritage Site in 1988 by UNESCO and in 2007, after a worldwide vote, it was named one of the 7 Wonders of the World Modern.

This excursion is a unique experience and a great privilege: being able to visit, explore and discover the mysteries of one of the 7 Wonders of the Modern World is something you will remember all your life.

In this tour you can immerse yourself in the mysteries and experience the magnificence of Mayan architecture and its wonderful symmetry, while our certified bilingual guides reveal step by step the deep meanings of the ancient Mayan constructions, customs and rituals.

The Mayan civilization is one of the most mysterious and interesting of the pre-Hispanic era and Chichen Itza is evidence of that. The geometry of its buildings is spectacular, as it combines astronomy, mathematics and an outstanding aesthetic expression ability.

Alignments of their temples with stars in the sky will show you how the Maya planned not only their activities, but the lives of generations later than their own. You can find the mystique of Chichen Itza in every recess, in every engraving full of meaning and in the peculiar phenomena that you can witness, such as the echo of the quetzal and – during the equinox – the descent of the feathered serpent.

But there is more! Much more!

Visiting Chichen Itza you will discover more than “a pyramid”, you will know an entire city of this ancient civilization where you can admire:

  • Market of the Thousand Columns – where you can lose yourself and taking amazing photos.
  • Temple of the Warriors – this temple still stands out within the already impressive complex of Chichen Itza. It is guarded by Chacmool , a mysterious and ancient deity who receives you in this building with a fixed gaze but without revealing its mysteries.
  • Ball Game – it’s much harder than you imagine and here you can get an idea of ​​how it was played. Step on the same floor as some of your great ancient heroes and delight in the sound effects of the ball court.
  • Jaguar Temple – located east of the great ball game, it is one of the most notable for its architectural design and its very rich decoration related to the rite of the game.
  • Astronomical Observatory , also known as El Caracol – this structure has one of the most majestic round towers of the Mayan culture. From this building the stars and their relations with the world were studied, from the most pragmatic to the most esoteric.
  • Kukulcán Temple – The Kukulcán temple, also known as El Castillo , is one of the most emblematic monuments of the Mayan civilization. It is characterized by its pyramidal stepped shape, unlike the “smooth” Egyptian pyramids, although both share similar mathematical proportions and characteristics.

The Castle or Temple of Kukulcán

The Castle is a true mathematical and even geographical wonder. Built on the intersection of lines of four different cenotes, it is 55.5 meters wide and 30 meters high. One of the multiple uses of the main pyramid is that of calendar to mark the changes of season, where in each equinox you can witness the descent of the feathered serpent ( the Mayan god – Kukulkan ).

This is due to the effect of lights and shadows on the steps of the tower where you can see the “movement” of the feathered serpent, from the top of the pyramid until reaching the head of the snake, on the first step of the building.

According to the Maya, this phenomenon represents the descent of Kukulkan , their god, who marks with this fact the arrival of the season where the rains will favor agricultural activities and, therefore, the very life of the communities.

The ingenious architecture of Chichen Itza is the reason why little more than 200 thousand tourists visit it monthly. The geometric, astronomical and mathematical precision of the constructions have amazed researchers and tourists since its discovery in 1860 by archaeologist Désire Chanay.

And if that weren’t enough, you’ll just be reaching the third stage of the tour …

Valladolid: Magic Town

It is a beautiful colonial city with colorful streets, quiet spaces, delicious gastronomy and many places to relax and continue to amaze you. Here you will enjoy exquisite traditional food and you can stroll through its stone streets while savoring a delicious ice cream.

Valladolid is a picturesque colonial city to which it was awarded as a distinctive Magic Town by the Ministry of Tourism of Mexico because it retains its culture, language and customs.

When you return to your hotel at night, you will have nothing left but to sleep and smile for having had an experience that you will remember for a lifetime.

At the end of the visit in Valladolid you will undertake the trip back to your hotel or to the established meeting point.
