Description

Take an express journey to Chichen Itza

Your excursion begins bright and early with pick-up in a comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle. Once you arrive to the archaeological site of Chichen Itza, history comes alive as you take a journey back in time with an expert bilingual guide who will tell you enriching stories of the ancient Mayans who built this unique and beautiful city.

Marvel at the beauty of the Temple of Kukulcan, the pyramid also known as ‘El Castillo’, which stands as Chichen Itza’s most famous structure and a symbol of indigenous and national identity. Wander deep into the ruins to see the Observatory, also nicknamed ‘El Caracol’, a standing testament to the Mayans’ astronomical and mathematical genius.


Explore more structures and take a deli lunch

Continue walking around the jungle paths of Chichen Itza to view structures such as the Monastery, the Nunnery and the Temple of the Warriors. Then find yourself playing an imaginary game of ‘pitz’ at the Grand Ball Court. When your guided excursion through Chichen Itza ends, you’ll have free time to go back to your favorite locations and even take one more iconic picture of the big pyramid.

After a magical time at this breathtaking Mayan site, board your vehicle where you’ll enjoy a deli-style lunch, beverages and a little rest and relaxation on your way back to the Mexican Caribbean. You’ll be back in the early afternoon, making this an ideal express adventure if you wish to have the rest of the day at your resort.
