Don't miss the opportunity to visit Chichen Itza during your Cancun vacations; the ancient capital of the Mayan Empire and learn why it has been designated one of the modern wonders of the world.
After hotel pickup, head to Chichen Itza with a certified guide who will give you a thorough explanation about the ancient Maya culture, its government, religion, rituals, calendar and more. This tour will teach you about the purpose of the Mayan buildings such as the Kukulcan Temple.
This experience also includes unlimited beer, water, and soda on the bus. Besides visiting Chichen Itza, you will be taken 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 also the only source of water in the Maya world.
Finally, you will also pay a 20-minute visit to the colonial town of Valladolid to take pictures and learn about this beautiful, historical city founded in 1543. Your adventure, one of the most complete of all Chichen Itza tours available, also includes a delicious buffet lunch with traditional regional foods. Don't forget to try the cochinita pibil tacos! It is a slow-roasted pork dish of Mayan origin you'll just love.
