Uncover the ancient mysteries of Chichen Itza on a day and night tour from Cancun or Riviera Maya. Sail past long lines at the sacred site with a certified Guide, and then watch the sun set over the iconic pyramid of the park, sipping bottomless margaritas and feasting on Mexican tapas at a luxurious nearby resort. Afterward, enjoy a light and sound show and see the history of the Maya empire brought to life through color and music. Convenient round-trip hotel transportation plus access to Viator's hospitality suite is included in the tour.
  • Viator VIP trip to Chichen Itza, Mayaland Resort and Be Maya Planetarium
  • Enter Chichen Itza through a private entrance without waiting in line
  • Visit the UNESCO World Heritage site with an expert guide
  • View Chichen Itza’s observatory from Mayaland’s private terrace with tapas and unlimited margaritas
  • Watch the newly renovated light and sound show projected onto Kukulcán Pyramid
After late-morning pickup from your Cancun or Riviera Maya hotel, sink into the soft seats of your luxurious Merceders-Benz minivan and enjoy the scenic 2.5-hour journey to Mayaland Resort. Venture within the highly acclaimed hotel to explore the fabulous facilities. If you want, you can access Viator's VIP on-site hospitality suite where you can relax after the tour.

Revitalized, immerse yourself in the ancient majesty of Chichen Itza; sail straight past the long lines and stroll through your own private entrance with your guide. Begin your tour at the iconic Kukulcán Pyramid, a colossal structure that boasts 365 steps representative of each day in the solar year. Imagine a thriving city of ancient Mayans as you wander amid ancient temples like the Temple of Warriors, gaining fascinating insight into an extinct empire. 

In the late afternoon, take a seat at your table on the private bar terrace of Mayaland Resort and taste delicious Mayan tapas. Sip margaritas made with zesty limes and tangy salt as you watch the sun set over the ancient structures of the park. Afterwards, visit the BE Maya Planetarium to learn about the secrets of the stars and space

Board a free shuttle and re-enter Chichen Itza to view the park from an alternative perspective. Take a seat for the light and sound show and watch dramatic lighting and advanced mapping projection techniques illuminate the 1,500-year-old Kukulcán Pyramid and offer insight in the turbulent history of the Mayan civilization. 

After the show concludes, return to your air-conditioned minivan and settle in for the journey back to Cancun or Riviera Maya. Enjoy a box dinner (select from either a steak-and-avocado baguette, chicken breast or vegetarian option) then sit back until you reach your destination.

good service
, Jul 2018
the service is very good. We have private entrance into the site, free beverage, dinner and a very small group. But if you are looking for a tour which can give you professional and in depth interpretation of the site in English, it may not be the best choice.

I have been to Chichen Itza three times now and this tour is hands down the best way to see it. The value is great, the guides are the most knowledgeable and just everything was perfect. The Mercedes Passenger Vans are so much more comfortable than the buses and walking around was much better as you could easily hear the guide and did not get lost in the crowd. I can not recommend this tour enough!!

I can not recommend this tour enough! This tour has truly a fantastic treat, it turned me into a Viator loyalist! You get picked up in a Mercedes and it is just you and whoever you are going with. It was a completely private tour. Our guide was just fantastic and full of history.

It was just us and one other couple (4 people total). The tour was great and the tour guide fantastic taking us around to each major structure and have us a little history on each one. He was also great at answering all of our questions. The light show was cancelled about 5 minutes into it though...

This tour was a total waste of money .when we started out we went into rain . The nice part is it's a small group. So now the guide tells us ....if it's raining they may cancel this!! First time we had heard this . After numerous questions regarding the cancellation of the show, he admitted they cancel the night show more than 50% of the time!! So when you leave at 12:30 for the tour, you don't get there until 3:30. They close at 5:00. So you are basically walking very fast through this site. The tour guide was very knowledgeable about the ruins . You need to eat lunch before you go because you don't get the tapas/ margaritas until about 5:30 or 6. The planetarium was really good so that was a definite plus. So now you are waiting for the light show to begin and you go to the hospitality room. It's a place where Pavorriti stayed . An empty room with a bar and a couch . It's cooler sitting outside as it's just an empty room. Now the guide comes up and says, the show is cancelled not raining and saw a beautiful sunset on way home . You get your box lunch on way home. When we were talking to another tour guide he said that they should have refunded our money since the show was cancelled! I wouldn't waste your money on this tour. There are so many tours to see Chechen Itza, I would pick a different one other than this one

We booked the tour thinking that we would have a small group. To our surprise we were the only people going. Carlos our driver and guide was on time in a really nice Mercedes My wife and I was treated to an awesome tour. Although the tripe to Chizen Itzel took several hours Carlos made sure that all of our needs and questions were answered Mayaland tours really did a great job. When I return I will certainly use there company and will request Carlos as our guide. The best tour I have had. Thanks Mayaland and of course Carlos.
