See the remarkable pyramids and monuments of the ancient Mayan city of Chichen Itza and swim in the cenote Ik-Kil. Learn about the Mayan civilization and visit the colonial city of Valladolid.


  • Explore the pyramid temples and other monuments of Chichen Itza
  • Swim in the underground lake of Ik Kil
  • Stroll around the colonial city of Valladolid


Depart for the archaeological site of Chichen Itza between 07:10 AM and 08:10 AM and prepare yourself for a 2.5-hour historical tour of the most famous of the ancient cities of the Yucatec Maya. Named one of the New 7 Wonders of the World in 2007, Chichen Itza was once one of the largest cities of the Mayan civilization and thought to be one of the most mystical. See the stunning pyramid Temple of Kukulkan and marvel at the row of columns in the Temple of a Thousand Warriors. Look at the observatory temple of 'El Caracol' and continue to highlights such as the sacrificial pit of the Great Ball Court, where the ancient ball game of 'pok-ta-pok' was played. Enjoy some free time to explore on your own. Then, take a refreshing swim in the cenote of Ik-Kil and experience an underground lake on one of the subterranean river systems sacred to the Mayans. Enjoy lunch before driving to Valladolid, where you will spend about 30 minutes in the 16th-century colonial city before the return journey and drop off at your hotel between 06:30 and 07:30 PM.
