Embark on a full-day trip to the ancient ruins of Chichén Itzá, one of the most popular sites in Mexico, and enjoy the sun rising on the stunning monuments.
Chichén Itzá Day Trip
First thing in the morning we'll pick you up from one of the meeting points to make our way to the interior of the Yucatán peninsula.
The journey takes around two hours, after which we arrive at our destination: the Mayan Chichén Itzá complex, where we'll enjoy a guided tour.
Perhaps the most impressive monument in the complex is the Kukulcán pyramid, where the dawn light captures the impressive monument known as 'the castle' at its best. In its day it performed a mystical function, and the tour will dive into the secrets of the pyramid and its long, storied link with Mayan astronomy.
The Mayan 'football stadium' can be found next to the pyramid, although in reality likely it matched football only in the passion with which it was played: The Mesoamerican ballgame was a sacred indigenous sport which it is theorised was used as a proxy for war, and had links to human sacrifice. Then the tour will visit the warrior temple, one of the most striking buildings in the area thanks to its forest of columns.
Having taken a look at the rest of the monuments in the area, we'll enjoy a delicious buffet lunch, before heading back to the meeting points in Cancún, making a quick rest break on the journey back.
