What You Can Expect

Chichen Itza Day Trip from Cancun

Chichen Itza: All Inclusive Day Tour from Cancun

From your hotel in Cancun, you’re picked up in the morning for the drive to Chichen Itza, considered the most important archaeological zone in the Yucatán. En route to the ancient Maya capital, stop to explore the natural wonders of a nearby cenote — either Ik Kil or Hubiku — depending on which area is less populated on the day of your tour.
You’ll have almost one hour to play in the deep, aquamarine waters of an underground swimming hole formed from a collapsed limestone cavern, before you continue on to Chichen Itza.
Around midday, start your 1.5-hour tour of significant locations at the World Heritage site, including the ball court, el Castillo (the Castle), the Pyramid of Kukulkan and Temple of the Warriors. You’ll learn from your certified guide why the extraordinary architectural beauty and geographical location have led to Chichen Itza's designation as one of the New Wonders of the World.
After some time to enjoy the ruins on your own, head to a local restaurant for a buffet lunch of fresh salads, soups, rice, meat, chicken, fish, vegetables and other regional fare (drinks at own expense). While eating, watch a festive show of traditional dances performed to folklore music.
Your full-day tour ends with return transport to your Cancun hotel.

Ricardo our tour guide was so knowledgeable and fun the all day tour was over before we knew it. I would highly recommend the tour it was a piece of Mexico that should not be overlooked. The bus was nice and clean and in great condition well worth the money.

My first review did not go through therefore I will give you the short version. Overall, the tour was great! Ricardo guide and Derwin driver were awesome with information and safely getting us to all locations. I really appreciate the technical stop convince store as we didn't have a chance for breakfast. The other stops in Mayan neighborhood and Church/Park were great as well. I will advise you to do limited shopping at the 1st shop where the Mayan birth certificates are done as there are numerous people willing to bargain at the Chichen Itza. Also, bring a lot of pesos for life jackets, gifts, and drinks. If I could change one thing, it would be having more free time at the Chicen Itza as it is huge. That's the price you pay for when you do scheduled tours. We paid a great price which was well worth it.
