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.

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.

My guide, Ricardo, was passionate and totally committed to providing us with an amazing day. His expert knowledge of the Mayan's was appreciated and absorbed. It is indeed a long day but TOTALLY WORTH EVERY SECOND!! You must not miss this exceptional experience!!

Great day trip. Tiring, for being far, but definitely worth it. A must go when visiting that area of Mexico.

Overall a great experience. I wish we can have more time on Chichen Itza and less time on the buffet and cenote. Two hours in Chichen Itza is not enough.

This was absolutely fantastic, the staff on the trip were incredibly helpful, informative, and knowledgable and overall we had a fantastic experience. I would highly recommend this to anyone traveling in the area. Just a heads up about two things, it is a long day, so be sure to bring lots of water and money for souvenirs and snacks along the way Most places we went took Pesos and US Dollars. Lastly, it is in the jungle so it's hot and humid, our tour was on an overcast day and it was still incredibly warm but even then they had umbrella's folks could use on the bus in order to shade themselves if needed.

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.
