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

Both Juan and Carlos were friendly and very knowledgeable about the history of the Mayan civilization.
Once we arrived at the locations they made sure we understood where and what time to meet up. So no one gets left behind and it allowed us to have enough time at each site.

This was an awesome trip. Our guide spoke both English and Spanish and gave a complete brief history of the Maya people while we were on the bus and on our way to Chichen Itza. This was important for all to know and it gave everyone a better understanding of what we were seeing while walking through the site. It was amazing to see what the Maya accomplished so many hundreds of years ago. The trip to the Ik Kil Cenote was absolutely beautiful and the water was so clear and warm for being underground. The food was good and everyone was very friendly and helpful during our tour. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to see the Yucatan and the Maya culture and swim in a beautiful cenote! Next time we plan to see Tulum!


5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2016

This was an excellent and magical experience. Visiting this UNESCO heritage site and experiencing the Cenote were magical adventures. Our guide was very excellent!

Our guide was very informative and helpful! Learned a lot about the Mayan culture. He advised not to purchase inside of Chichen Itza which would encourage the archaeology site to be a market. We really appreciate that! Though I feel the stop at the gift shop was not needed. But different travelers may have different opinions.

We had Ricardo as our tour guide and from the moment he started, we knew we were in good hands! What a wealth of knowledge he possessed.

I have done many tours and this would have to be right up there with good ones.

Highly recommend this company to anyone considering. Effortless and Seamless.
