Chichen Itza one of the New Seven Wonders of the World is located in the Yucatan Peninsula, about 117 miles west of Cancun. Chichen Itza is one of the most important Mayan Sites in the Yucatan Peninsula. A visit to this amazing Mayan city is a must for everyone traveling to Cancun.
Come with us to explore Chichen Itza Mexico, an indisputable cultural referent for Mexicans, an identity symbol, and a true wonder of our pre-Columbian past! Chichen Itza in Southeastern Mexico is one of the most important ancient Maya cities and one of those Cancun tours you just cannot miss on your next vacation.
The most impressive building in Chichen Itza is known as El Castillo or Kukulcan Pyramid, but the whole city is a true wonder of pre-Columbian architecture, so make sure to bring your camera with enough battery and available memory space!
Through our tour of Chichen Itza, which is arguably among the best Cancun activities, you’ll get to visit the Great Ball Court, The Temple of the Warriors, El Caracol, Las Monjas, and many more structures along with the Cenote Sagrado (Sacred Cenote), a natural sinkhole which was a place of pilgrimage where ancient Mayas conducted sacrifices.
Cenotes were considered a portal to the underworld and were the only source of water in the Maya world. They are still so important and beautiful that right after finishing our Chichen Itza tour we will head to a cenote, which a few miles is away so you can swim in its clear waters and get some great photos.
During our tour of Chichen Itza, a certified guide will provide you with a thorough explanation of the ancient Maya culture, their government, religion, calendar, rituals and much more. Besides swimming in an impressive cenote and visiting Valladolid, you will learn about the purpose of the Mayan buildings such as the Kukulcan Temple on our Chichen Itza Plus tour, one of the best Cancun activities of all times!
Do you want to know why people say our Chichen Itza Plus tour is one of the most memorable Cancun tours ever? Well, you have unlimited beer, water, and soda on the bus! On the other hand, besides visiting Chichen Itza we will take you to a refreshing cenote for a swim. Cenotes are natural sinkholes resulting from the collapse of limestone bedrock that exposes fresh water underneath; they were considered a portal to the underworld and were the only source of water in the Maya world.
We also pay a 20-minute visit to the colonial town of Valladolid Mexico to take pictures and learn about this beautiful, historical city founded in 1543. Our adventure, one of the most complete of all Chichen Itza tours available, also includes a delicious buffet lunch with traditional regional foods. Do not forget to try the cochinita pibil tacos! It is a slow-roasted pork dish of Mayan origin you will just love.
