You will start your Chichen Itza Tour by being picked up at the agreed meeting point or at your hotel.

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

In this cenote you can swim in its cold waters or take advantage of the cenote’s central platform 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: Chichén Itzá.

This archaeological 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 Mayans. Its name means “mouth of the well (Chichén) of the water witches (Itzá)” and it 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 that you will remember all your life.

On this tour you will be able to immerse yourself in the mysteries and experience firsthand 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 buildings, customs and rituals.

The Mayan civilization is one of the most mysterious and interesting of the pre-Hispanic era and Chichén Itzá is evidence of this. The geometry of its buildings is spectacular, as it combines astronomy, mathematics and an outstanding capacity for aesthetic expression.

The alignments of their temples with stars in the sky will show you how the Mayans planned not only their activities, but the lives of generations after theirs. The mystique of Chichén Itzá can be found in every nook, in every meaningful engraving 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.

When visiting Chichén Itzá you will discover more than “a pyramid”, you will know an entire city of this ancient civilization where you can admire:

  • Thousand Columns Market – where you can lose yourself counting them and taking amazing photos.
  • Temple of the Warriors – this temple still stands out within the already impressive complex of Chichén Itzá. It is guarded by Chacmool, a mysterious and ancient deity who welcomes you in this building with a fixed gaze but without revealing her mysteries.
  • Ball Game – it is much more difficult than you imagine and here you can get an idea of ​​how it was played. Step on the same ground as some of your great ancient heroes and delight in the sound effects of the ball court.
  • Temple of the Jaguar – located east of the great ball court, is one of the most notable for its architectural design and for its 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 relationships 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 stepped pyramidal shape, unlike the “smooth” Egyptian pyramids, although both share similar proportions and mathematical characteristics.

El Castillo is a true mathematical and even geographical marvel. Built on the crossing 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 the calendar to mark the changes of season, where at 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 the “movement” of the feathered serpent can be appreciated, from the top of the pyramid until reaching the head of the serpent, on the first step of the building.

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

The ingenious architecture of Chichén Itzá is the reason why just over 200 thousand tourists visit it monthly. The geometric, astronomical and mathematical precision of the constructions have amazed researchers and tourists since their discovery in 1860 by the archaeologist Désire Chanay.

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

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

Valladolid is a picturesque colonial city that was awarded the Pueblo Mágico by the Secretary of Tourism of Mexico because it preserves its culture, language and customs.

Back at 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 start the return trip to your hotel or to the established meeting point.
