  • 12 hours

Discover the history of the Mayans in Chichén Itzá. After the tour, enjoy an amazing light show as the sun sets over the pyramids.

Chichén Itzá Night Show with Buffet Lunch

Around 10:40 am we'll pick you up from your hotel or the meeting point and set off in a comfortable bus to begin our excursion.

The first stop will be at the Hubiku Cenote, a paradise natural pool whose sparkling turquoise waters will leave you speechless. You'll have approximately two hours here to make the most of the cenote and discover the network of underground rivers that can only be found in the Yucatan Peninsula.

Leaving the cenote behind, we'll head to a restaurant to enjoy a delicious buffet lunch of international food. With satisfied appetites, we'll return to the bus for the journey to the Tequila Museum, the Mayan Village, and the city of Valladolid, where you'll enjoy a guided tour lasting around an hour. Here you'll get the inside story on the main monuments in the city, of which the la iglesia de San Servacio is the star.

Then the last stop will take place at the Chichén Itzá archaeological site. As night falls, you'll enjoy the Kukulkán Nights show. Captivating 3D projections will bring us closer to Mayan cultural ancestry, with fascinating combinations of colour and music.

At the end of the show, we'll return to the hotels of the Cancun area late at night.
