What To Expect

Get an early start on the day with pickup at your hotel in Playa del Carmen, then travel to the ancient city of Chichen Itza, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. A light breakfast of fruit, cookies, and juice will be served during the trip. Upon arrival in the city, begin a guided tour of the Chichen Itza’s most important sites, from the pyramid of Kulkulkan to ball courts, an astronomical observatory, and “La Iglesia,” an ornate temple.

When the tour of Chichen Itza concludes, continue to Ik Kil cenote, a sinkhole in the limestone rock of the Yucatan Peninsula. Descend a staircase past streaming vines, then swim in the fresh water at the bottom of the cavern. Refuel for an afternoon of exploring with lunch at a restaurant by the cenote.

You’ll see the remnants of sac bé, the white roads that linked buildings and cities at the height of the Maya world, then head to Nohoch Mul pyramid, one of the few Maya pyramids than can still be climbed. After your time at Coba, begin the return trip to Playa del Carmen, where this tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel.

Chichen Itza

After boarding the transportation at your hotel and a technical stop of 10 minutes, we’ll begin the route towards our first destination, Chichén Itzá. The main building is the Kukulkan Castle, known as The Pyramid. It is an icon of the astronomical, architectural, mathematical and engineering knowledge and, together with the platforms, they tell us about the past, with their many sculptures and representations of feathered serpents and Chaac masks, the majestic god of rain that lives in the sacred cenote. Other places like the monumental Ball Game, The Astronomical Observatory, also known as The Snail and the area of The Church are worth admiring, thanks to their masks from the Mayan classic period. Come and explore with us this World Cultural Heritage Site!

1 hour Admission Ticket Included

Cenote Ik kil

The second stop of the day is The place of the wind, Cenote Ik Kil. This is one of the accidents caused by the impact of a meteorite against the Yucatan Peninsula and it was an essential part for the active life of Chichen Itzá. Nowadays, it’s open to the public for the delight of visitors from all around the world. Swimming in the waters of Cenote Ik kil is sharing part of an ancient purification in a place that Mayans considered the perpetual dwelling of Chaac, god of the water and the rain. Cooling off in its waters is entering the eternity, being reborn and rejuvenating in an ancestral mysticism. Also, it is an official site for world cliff diving due to its waters, which are 60 meters deep. We will have lunch at the restaurant of the cenote.

Traveler Tips


It is a long drive time to the places, but just sit back and relax.
I cannot recommend his enough, yes, it's a long day, but one day out of your vacation/Holiday to see Chichen Itza is well worth it.
The tour guide Alfredo was spectacular and knowledgeable, we learned so much and this is so worth every penny to go to all three areas with a guide!

Avoid this company.
laura_h, Apr 2021
This company canceled our trip the night before we were to go... less than 24 hours. Completely unacceptable. Their reasoning was they didn’t have enough people for the trip. So I guess it’s your customers loss when you don’t meet your money quota for the day. Sad.......
Knowledgeable
Danielle_J, Apr 2021
Our guide Felix was very knowledgeable about the history. Great guide . Only negative thing I was unhappy about was last minute time change. Left later therefore we got back later and missed some of our activities that we were going to do at the resort.
Fun day
Yekaterina_M, Dec 2020
Tour guide was wonderful. Easy to understand and kept everything on track. Only issue is that the tour operators know ahead of time about all the extra taxes so it would be nice if that was added into the cost at the beginning instead of having to pay all these extra charges day of. The cenote was wonderful, wish we had more time there but lunch took up 40 min of the 1.5 hours so we didnt have a lot of time to swim. Overall a fun day
Bad experience
Kathy_k, Mar 2020
Horrible experience! If you want to be in a van for hours picking up and dropping off people then by all means book this excursion. This was 15 hours!!! 4 hours driving back to drop off everyone. They don’t coordinate Cancun and Playa hotels. They picked us up at 6:15am first and dropped us off last at 9:00 pm!! Ridiculous! Breakfast was not provided as mentioned. Sites were good. Too much time spent swimming
Nice tour to occupy your day
Alexandru_T, Feb 2020
The tour was very nice and occupied us the entire day. We were lucky to find chichen itza almost empty early in the morning. Enrique our guide knew even the history of Romania:)) very well informed, thanks for all the tips. The cenote wasn’t worth it, too crowded.

This tour was great! The guide was amazing, knowledgeable, and super friendly! I would definitely recommend this tour!
A full day of adventures!
Melissa_M, Jan 2020
We had a great time! It was exactly what we were hoping for. We were picked up when we were supposed to be, we had a great guide who gave us a lot of good info, (but didn’t go on and on, so we had time to explore) and our driver was awesome! We lucked out and had nice weather for all of the activities as well. I would definitely recommend going on this tour! Thanks!
Amazing places!
szandrad_ral, Jan 2020
We loved this trip! Our guide, Mario was funny and gave us a lot of information of every place we visited. The only "problem" was that we didn't have enough time at Chichen Itza, as the place is huge (you would need a couple more hours for that).
The best if your wanting to see several things in one day
Sylvain I, Dec 2019
This is a great tour if your looking to see several things in one day. They also provide you with lunch and just the right amount of time for everything. Our tour guide was okay, his English was good but not perfect so you have to pay close attention when he’s speaking about the history and on the bus.
