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

Tour was very informative without being boring. Tour guide was really friendly, knowledgable, and funny. Ample time to explore Chichen Itza on your own after a brief history lesson with the tour guide. Bus ride was smooth and included a stop to a local artisan shop for a chance to buy handmade souvenirs. Lunch buffet was a little disappointing. The cenote was absolutely beautiful and one of the coolest things I've ever experienced! Would definitely recommend!

Excellent and convenient! From pick up to drop off.
I was not sure if I should but the tours before arriving but it was worth it. Tors there are more expensive and not so professional.

Our guide Carlos was VERY knowledgeable and proud of his Mayan heritage. Bus picked us up at 8:00 hrs and didn't get back until 20:30hrs. Great trip only wish I had known it would last that long. Luckily we brought extra water and snacks.

I highly recommend this trip. We had a group of 10 and our guide was great. He took great pride in the culture and provided insight to the Mayan culture. This is a must see man made wonder!!! Now that is a historic site you cannot climb or get too close which is expected to keep them around for another 100 years and more.

i highly recommended. Ricardo was our tour guide and he was funny, helpful and knowledgeable.
Note: if you are taking this tour, be aware that you will be spending all day on this tour.
We stared at 8am and back to the hotel around 10pm.
This is really nice tour to Chichen itaza, it's worth the trip.

My wife and I highly recommend this tour! Our tour guide, Ricardo, was extremely knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. Of course, just seeing and experiencing the auditory wonders of the large temple and ball court of Chichen Itza itself are huge reasons to tour this historic site, but we also recommend this visit for the things we didn't anticipate. For example, we visited a Mayan community on the way where we tried a traditional liquor and had personalized birth certificates created for us using Mayan hieroglyphs on paper made from tree bark. We also had a great time diving the cenote and swimming to cool down. While the water isn't as cristal clear as Centoe de Dos Ojos, it's since it's an open-air cenote there are beautiful trees and plants cascading down the walls. While the lunch that was included wasn't our favorite--it wasn't very authentic Mexican food pasta, potato salad, mild fajitas, etc.-- it was a buffet that included several options. Overall, we highly recommend this tour!
