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 Chichen Itza full-day tour ends with return transport to your Cancun hotel.

Excellent tour! Our tour guide Carlos was knowledgeable, funny, and well organized. We learned much about Chichen Itza while there. The cenote swim was a welcome break after a few hours in the hot sun. The tour lasted all day, but was well worth the price and time commitment. My wife and I both enjoyed the day and would heartily recommend this tour to anyone.

My wife and I really enjoyed our day at Chichen Itza. We we picked up at our Hotel at the time we agreed upon. The bus driver and tour guide were very professional. The lunch was okay, but nothing to write home about, but all in all, a worthwhile excursion and we recommend it.

I highly recommend this tour for anyone traveling to cancun and wants to get an authentic experience. It was everything I hoped it would be and more. My sister and I booked this tour the day before in hopes to surprise my mom for her birthday. We were met by Carlos at 7AM who was on time, professional, and the best tour guide I have ever had. We picked up other people from different hotels and were on our way to Chichen Itza. Carlos was full of energy and charisma from the very beginning and was so happy to share the history of chichen itza with us. While on the tour, I was pleasantly surprised to find out were were going to be doing more than what the description said. We would go to a souvenir shop, Chichen Itza, Ik Kil, THEN a colonial mexican town. We started at the souvenir shop were my sister, my mom, and I bought calendars and necklaces with mayan letters and numbers. We went on to Chichen Itza and were provided with umbrellas which was wonderful because it was so hot. Carlos gave us so much history and was very knowledgable about recent and past discoveries made at one of the 7th wonders of the world. We have a great 2 hours there which was more than enough because of the hot weather. We proceeded to Ik Kil, where we had a buffet lunch which was so delicious and authentic and swam in Ik Kil for over an hour.It was so beautiful and fun. We got back on the tour bus and went to the colonial town which was a great way to end the day because we got a true feel of mexico's architecture, people, and culture. We had coffee and ice cream and sat around a fountain before it rained and had to get back on the bus. A great way to end the day. Carlos worked so hard all day and was so happy throughout and I would recommend him to anyone. Juan the bus driver was great and very sweet as well. If you're looking to get away from the hotels of Cancun and get the most out of your vacation/stay in Mexico, this tour is AMAZING! Definitely go on it!

This tour was such good value and the staff involved were highly educated in the history of the Mayans and happy answered all of our questions. Alex was our tour guide and he was very accomodating to what we wanted to do and made sure we were as comfortable as possible in the intense Mexican heat. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting to visit the Mayan temples and pyramids. Also, jumping into the sinkhole is a must!
