Itinerary

Kickstart your day super-early as you gear up to explore the brilliant Chichen Itza- the extremely renowned archaeological ruin of the Mayan Empire. You will be picked up from your hotel and taken to Chichen Itza to meet your specialized archaeologist guide who will explain to you in detail the history and significance of this archaeological wonder. Being one of the New Seven Wonders of the World, the Chichen Itza played a crucial role in the Mayan society served as a base of worship and pilgrimage until the Spanish landed. Take your time to explore the ruins as you will be going at a time when it’s peaceful and quiet. Stroll through the observatory and the Temple of the Warriors. You’ll also visit the Kukulcan Pyramid, a four-sided structure constructed with in-depth knowledge of astronomy. Your guide will explain that during equinox on a clear day, a shadow is created by the setting sun which makes it seem like a snake is slithering down the pyramid’s stairs.
Experience the amazing acoustical engineering of the Mayans as you stand on one of the platforms at the enormous ball court where they played sports and have someone whisper from 46 meters away while you will be able to hear every word. Once you’re done marvelling at the beauty of this site, you will be given a packed lunch which will include a baguette, a boxed juice and a pack of cookies, after which you will be dropped back to your hotel.
