Take a private tour of Chichen Itza from Cancun and enjoy personalized attention for just you and your group. See the marvelous UNESCO World Heritage Site on a guided tour and learn all about this important Mayan site in the Yucatan Peninsula. Swim in a cenote and visit the city of Valladolid on your way back. Your tour is private so you get to have a private guide and ride on a private air-conditioned van to make the most of your visit to Cancun.
Your tour begins with pickup from your hotel in Cancun early in the morning. The pickup time is flexible as this is a private guide, but it is recommended that you choose an early departure. You'll meet your driver and board a private air-conditioned van for just you and your group and head to the archaeological site.
Once there, you will enjoy an in-depth 2-hour guided tour with a private guide. See the site's main buildings and landmarks and learn of the importance it had in the Mayan culture. This world famous archaeological site was founded in 525 AD and is now considered one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. In the Mayan language Chichen Itza means "In the mouth of the well of the Itzaes" and it was one of the most important economic and political centers of Mayan civilization.
Walk around and see the magnificent structures including the Temple of Kulkulkan, known as The Castle; The Temple of Chac Mool; The Temple of the Warriors and the 1,000 columns. You'll also see The Castle Pyramid which is one of the highest and notable temples of the Mayan Culture. After the tour, you will have some free time to explore the site on your own and take unforgettable pictures, before boarding your van and heading to visit a sacred cenote.
Cenotes (or sinkholes) were considered sacred places to the Mayans where they gave offerings to good Chaac, lord of the rain. You'll get to swim in the fresh waters of this cenote and admire the natural surroundings. Then, you'll enjoy a delicious lunch of authentic Mexican cuisine before stopping at the city of Valladolid for a panoramic tour. You'll then head back to your hotel on your private van.
