Enjoy convenient hotel pickup in the early morning, then transfer to the Cancun airport for your flight to Chichen Itza. At the private plane terminal, pass through security, boar your small aircraft and take off for your day trip. During the 30- to 40-minute flight, gaze out the window at the dense Yucatecan jungle, marveling at views of the Mayan compound come in to view, seemingly out of nowhere.
Transfer to the entrance of the ruins, arriving well before most of the crowds and enjoying express, skip-the-line entry. Meet your archaeologist guide for a 3-hour tour of the premises, limited to 10 people or fewer for a personalized experience and the opportunity to ask questions. Learn about the history of this UNESCO World Heritage Site, which was a bustling center of Mayan civilization and worship between 600 and 1200 AD.
Visit the Temple of the Warriors, the Temple of Kukulkan, the Temple of the Jaguars and the Observatory as your guide shares the meaning of the cosmology and mythology and present in the stone carvings, platforms and pyramids.
After your tour, head back to the private airstrip. Following your flight back to Cancun, you can expect to arrive back at your hotel between 3pm and 4pm.
