Description

Wander the remarkable ruins of Chichén Itzá, capital of the ancient Maya, on this full-day cultural excursion. One of the New Seven Wonders of the World, explore the city's sacred temples, grand pyramids, and ceremonial sights as you unravel the mysteries of the Mayan civilization.

Begin your day with a convenient pickup from your hotel. Once arriving at the UNESCO-listed Chichén Itzá, take in the elaborate complex of pyramids and stone structures. Marvel at the towering Temple of Kukulkan which—standing 75 feet (22 m) high—is adorned with the image of Kukulkan, the Mayan feathered snake god. Twice a year on each solstice, the sun hits this dazzling step pyramid at just the right angle so the shadows create a snake that winds down the steps.

Measuring 554 feet (168 m) long and 231 feet (70 m) wide, walk onto the largest ball court in the Americas. Here, stone rings high above the ground were once used for serious ritual games—resulting in death to the losing team's captain. Then stop to ponder the rows of stone pillars in the Temple of a Thousand Columns and gaze into the deep waters of the Cenote Sagrado, or Sacred Well, where the Maya made countless human sacrifices to appease their gods.

After a day of archaeological discovery, board the awaiting bus for your journey back to Cancun.
