Immerse yourself in Mayan culture on this visit to the Chichén Itzá archaeological site.  With the setting of the sun, you'll enjoy an incredible light and sound show on the Kukulkán pyramid.

Night Show in Chichén Itzá with Buffet Lunch

On the morning of your tour, we'll pick you up from your hotel or meeting point in Riviera Maya and set off in a comfortable bus to our first destination: the spectacular Hubiku Cenote. Here, we'll spend two hours enjoying the turquoise waters of the natural pool.

After making the most of our time at the cenote, we'll head to a restaurant to enjoy a delicious buffet lunch. With renewed energy, we'll then return to the bus for the journey to the Chichén Itzá archaeological site.

Arriving at the incredible UNESCO World Heritage Site, we'll do a guided tour of its main monuments; the most striking of all being the Kukulkán Pyramid, named one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World. As we contemplate the imposing pyramid we'll get to know the Mayan rituals and ceremonies which took place here.

We'll also learn about pre-colonial sacred sport, visiting the remains of the stadiums where the ritually significant Mesoamerican Ballgame was played (somewhat similar to volleyball, but without a net, and in which the ball was hit primarily with the hips). And just around the corner, we'll be surprised by the hundreds of columns surrounding The Warriors' Temple, one of the best-conserved temples in the region.

As night falls, we'll enjoy the Kukulkán Nights show. Various 3D projections will bring us closer to the historic culture of the Mayan people, captivating us with fascinating combinations of colour and music.

With the show over, we'll return to the Riviera Maya hotels late at night.
