Discover Yucatán’s heartbeat with a deluxe tour of the vibrant archaeological site of Chichen Itza, home to one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World. Your chauffeur will pick you up in a Mercedes Benz from your hotel in Cancun or the Riviera Maya; people departing from Merida will be picked up at one of the meeting points. Your guide will get straight to work on teaching you about the historical importance of this awe-inspiring monumental travel destination. Come prepared with biodegradable sunscreen, comfortable clothing, walking shoes and a cap to shield the bright Yucatecan sun.
You’ll go into Chichen Itza through a private entrance at the award-winning Mayaland Hotel & Bungalows, a tropical paradise tucked between ancient temples. With your certified bilingual guide, you will explore the architecture of the central group of vestiges, which were constructed during the Classic Maya period, a time when the ancient city’s population was at its peak. Next, explore the northern group of temples, which shows the takeover of the famous tribe of Kukulkan, a religious movement that consumed the culture of the original site and can be identified through the symbolism of a plumed serpent climbing along temples and pyramids.
After your two-hour guided tour, enjoy all of the amenities the Mayaland Hotel & Bungalows has to offer. Relax poolside, enjoy a massage, partake on another adventure or re-enter the site as many times as you like with no lines and zero hassles.
After, bring your experience full circle by biting into local delicacies which have been passed down through generations for centuries accompanied by fresh hand-made tortillas. Enjoy a buffet-style dining experience made to meet any dietary needs; enjoy Yucatecan, Mexican and Maya cuisine as well as international, pescatarian, vegetarian and vegan options.
