What You Can Expect

Riviera Maya Combo: Chichen Itza Tour plus Dolphin Xtreme

Swim with dolphins in Mexico!

After your friendly guide picks you up from your Riviera Maya hotel, head to either Chichen Itza for a tour of the archeological site or to your Dolphin Xtreme experience – depending on which tour you opt to do first. You can skip a day or two in between, or spread the fun over two consecutive days – it’s your choice!

Chichen Itza Tour
At Chichen Itza, one of the new Seven Wonders of the World, take a 2-hour guided tour to see the highlights of the UNESCO World Heritage Site. Your guide will explain the historical significance of Chichen Itza’s most important structures before leaving you to enjoy the picture-worthy site at your own pace. Marvel at the Pyramid of Kukulcán, Temple of the Warriors (or 1,000 Columns) and the Great Ball Court – the largest in Mesoamerica, stretching 537 feet (164 meters) long and 224 feet (68 meters) wide.

Admire the large central pyramid called El Castillo (The Castle), the Observatory, La Iglesia and the Nunnery, as well as the smaller but beautifully preserved temples in the ancient Mayan city. You'll also have access to the sacred Xtoloc Cenote to explore. When you’re ready, walk back to the Mayaland Resort for a delightful buffet-style lunch featuring Yucatecan cuisine. Here, enjoy the swimming pools, lounge chairs and botanical gardens.

Dolphin Xtrmeme
The one-hour Dolphin Xtreme experience, you'll feel the adrenaline rush as you snorkel, zip and rappel! After a 15-minute briefing by an experienced trainer, spend time in the water with dolphins. This wonderful experience combines this animal interaction, as well as ziplining over the Mayan jungle, rappelling down into the lush jungle of the Riviera Maya and snorkeling in a stunning underground river.

All necessary rappel and snorkel equipment is included, as well as a lunch with non-alcoholic beverages!

We had a fantastic tour guide at Chichen Itza who was very friendly and informative. The food was great, but did not include the price of drinks, even water. This was not a big deal at all but would have been nice to have been prepared for.

The Dolphin Xtreme: Swimming with the dolphins and manatees was fantastic. Each person in our group got plenty of one-on-one time with the dolphins. There are no stingrays or sharks in the area, so that was disappointing... The rappelling, zip lining and snorkeling was a ton of fun! I only wish we had more time to these things - it felt a bit rushed. That guide was great, too, and the food was very good. You cannot have cameras with the dolphins and manatees, but you can with everything else. The photographers were great, though, so you don't NEED a camera.
