After late-morning pickup from your Cancun or Riviera Maya hotel, sink into the soft seats of your luxurious Merceders-Benz minivan and enjoy the scenic 2.5-hour journey to Mayaland Resort. Venture within the highly acclaimed hotel to explore the fabulous facilities. If you want, you can access Viator's VIP on-site hospitality suite where you can relax after the tour.
Revitalized, immerse yourself in the ancient majesty of Chichen Itza; sail straight past the long lines and stroll through your own private entrance with your guide. Begin your tour at the iconic Kukulcán Pyramid, a colossal structure that boasts 365 steps representative of each day in the solar year. Imagine a thriving city of ancient Mayans as you wander amid ancient temples like the Temple of Warriors, gaining fascinating insight into an extinct empire.
In the late afternoon, take a seat at your table on the private bar terrace of Mayaland Resort and taste delicious Mayan tapas. Sip margaritas made with zesty limes and tangy salt as you watch the sun set over the ancient structures of the park. Afterwards, visit the BE Maya Planetarium to learn about the secrets of the stars and space
Board a free shuttle and re-enter Chichen Itza to view the park from an alternative perspective. Take a seat for the light and sound show and watch dramatic lighting and advanced mapping projection techniques illuminate the 1,500-year-old Kukulcán Pyramid and offer insight in the turbulent history of the Mayan civilization.
After the show concludes, return to your air-conditioned minivan and settle in for the journey back to Cancun or Riviera Maya. Enjoy a box dinner (select from either a steak-and-avocado baguette, chicken breast or vegetarian option) then sit back until you reach your destination.
