A knowledgeable tour guide will accompany you and share a detailed explanation about the history and culture that thrived in the Yucatan Peninsula centuries ago, resulting in the great Mayan Culture.
You will enjoy your time taking photos or listening carefully to the interesting facts about the main buildings surrounding the Kukulkan Temple, also known as el Castillo. This is a one of a kind Mayan structure, designed with 91 steps on each side, simulating our solar calendar. Because of this and many other facts, Chichen Itza has been recently proclaimed as one of the New 7 Wonders of the Modern World, by more than 100 million online voters. Get closer to El Castillo and admire its amazing carved snakes and it’s symmetrical architecture.
At Chichen Itza you will also find the famous Mayan Ball Court. This is another impressive ceremonial structure and the largest of its kind. Some experts believe the Mayan Ruling Class used it to settle disputes or as a recreational activity. Playing on a court much longer than a football field, two teams would try to score goals with a rubber ball, using their forearms and hips only.
We suggest you to start this special journey early in the morning, to be among the first visitors to arrive at this famous archaeological site. You will have plenty of time to explore the ruins, then we will drive you straight back to your hotel or condo.
