Your journey starts as we pick you up from the Progreso cruise ship pier on one of our luxurious Mercedes Benz vehicles; on your way to Chichen Itza, you’ll learn about Mayan culture and history. As you arrive at Chichen Itza, you’ll be greeted by an official Gray Line Certified bilingual guide who will accompany you on your visit to the Mayan vestiges.
You’ll go into Chichen Itza’s archaeological site skipping the main entrance waiting lines through a private entrance at the award-winning Mayaland Hotel & Bungalows, a tropical paradise tucked between ancient temples. With your guide, you’ll 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; here lies the pyramid of Kukulkan, one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World.
After your guided tour, you’ll head back to the pier comfortably onboard one of our luxurious Mercedes Benz vehicle enjoying a prepared box lunch.
