Description

Step back in time with a smartphone tour of Chichen Itza's ruins. Enjoy an app-based tour that functions as a guide, audio tour, and a map. Discover the site with an app that has been developed by local guides, curated by creative writers, and narrated by professional voice artists. Download your app and activate your tour before heading to the entrance of the Chichen Itza archaeological site. Purchase a ticket and start your tour. Go past an ancient wall that once surrounded this place. View the El Castillo pyramid and learn about its significance to the Mayans. Visualize what you cannot see with animated videos that allow you to peek into interior rooms and gaze into the past. Visit the Great Ball Court, where Mayans once played an intense, elaborate game somewhere between soccer and basketball.  See the ominous-sounding Wall of Skulls, which once held the heads of sacrificial victims. Stroll along the Platform of the Eagle and Jaguar Warriors, home to intricate carvings and sculptures full of deep meaning.  Continue toward the Platform of Venus, which once held offerings to the stars. Use the app to find out more about the Mayan religion. Arrive at The White Road, one of the largest and most intact ancient roads in the world. Take the road to the Sacred Cenote, where ancient Mayans sacrificed people to appease their rain god. Admire the Temple of Warriors, a multi-tiered temple with a dark secret hidden inside. Uncover more about the Hall of a Thousand Columns and the Ossuary, the final resting place of a High Priest. After that, you’ll go to the Observatory, a perfect spot for viewing the heavens and learning the significance of the stars in Mayan culture. Finally, reach the Nunnery and the Church, two of the most-photographed spots in the entire ruin. Your tour and trivia adventure concludes here.
