What were the Mayans doing when they build the pyramids of Chichén Itza? What were their prophecies? Decrypt these enigmas, and more, visiting the archaeological site, and with a visit to a sacred cenote.
Chichén Itzá and Sacred Cenote Day Trip
Having picked you up from your chosen meeting point we'll hit the road to the most famous archaeological site in Mexico.
Having arrived at Chichén Itzá we'll visit the most important and renowned remains of the Mayan civilisation, revealing its incredible secrets through a guided visit of the archaeological site.
We'll reveal the secrets of the Kukulkán pyramid, named one of the seven wonders of the modern world in 2007, and which remains part in darkness part illuminated during the solstices, testament to the deep astrological knowledge of the pre-colonial civilisations.
Continuing our tour we'll visit the Chichén Itzá temples, one of the most spectacular of which being the temple of the warriors, decorated with images of war and guarded by a forest of columns, custodians of Chac Mool, god of the rain.
Then we'll head to one of the sacred Mayan cenotes, where you can swim, or simply enjoy the leafy landscape. Archaeologists have even found numerous human remains here, due to the sacrifices which once took place in the area. And having finished the guided tour we'll fuel up with a buffet lunch (although due to timing the buffet may come before the cenote tour).
Afterwards, we'll move on to the colonial city of Valladolid. On arrival, we'll take a guided tour of the old town, including the church of San Servacio, the Municipal Palace and the Municipal Market. If we can't go to Valladolid due to the celebration of certain local festivities, we'll take you to the nearby town of Pisté.
With the tour over, we'll head back to the meeting points in Cancún, arriving at around 7 pm.
