What You Can Expect

Chichen Itza Small-Group Tour with Private Entrance

Ball Court at Chichen Itza

Your small-group tour begins with hotel pickup in a luxurious Mercedes Benz, relaxing in one of its plush reclining seats. Travel directly to Chichen Itza, without stopovers along the way. When you arrive at Mayaland Resort, uniquely situated within the archeological park of Chichen Itza, meet your guide to begin your day of exploration.

Follow your knowledgeable guide through Mayaland’s private entrance and get an introduction to the pre-Columbian Mayan way of life as you step foot inside Chichen Itza, one of the new Seven Wonders of the World.

During your 2-hour tour of this ancient city, listen as your guide explains the archaeological, historical and cultural significance of its most important temples to your group. Learn about the central area of the classic period and the northern section from the Toltec period.

Stop to admire the Pyramid of Kukulcán, and see the Temple of the Warriors as well as the ball court, observatory and nunnery. When your guide leaves you to experience Chichen Itza at your own pace, make sure to visit the well-preserved smaller temples in the vicinity.

Once you’ve taken your share of pictures, you’re free to use the pools and other facilities at Mayaland Resort, a multiple Condé Nast Traveler magazine winner and considered a National Geographic favorite since 1936. After a lunch buffet that includes a wide selection of international, Mexican and Yucatecan dishes, head back to revisit the temples or simply relax at the resort amid the beautiful and scenic surroundings.

Lay back in a lounge chair or dive into a swimming pool, stroll through the 100-acre tropical botanical gardens brimming with native plants or visit the sacred Xtoloc Cenote, located on the resort grounds (no swimming permitted).

Be Maya Planetarium upgrade option:
Before returning to your hotel in the late evening, stop by Be Maya Planetarium, where you'll listen to stories of the ancient Maya civilization and tales of the Maya skies. Learn about Mayan science, art and mythology while observing the starry sky of the planetarium and let it transport you back into ancient Mayan times.

Very educational. We had wonderful guide. Lots of areas without shade so remember sunblock. If your bus driver offers an umbrella, take him up on it!
