See the Mayan ruins of the Yucatán on this excursion to Chichén Itzá, when the watery morning light illuminates the monuments, creating an unforgettable image.
Chichén Itzá Day Trip Itinerary
First thing in the morning we'll pick you up at your hotel to make our way to the interior of the Yucatán peninsula at sunrise.
Arriving at the Mayan Chichén Itzá complex, we'll enjoy an hour and a half long guided tour of the surrounding area. The dawn light on the Kukulcán pyramid is sure to captivate your gaze, fixing it to this impressive monument, commonly known as "the castle" thanks to its shape. Its function was more mystic however, and on our visit we'll learn about the secrets the pyramid holds, whose link with Mayan astronomy is long and storied.
We'll also investigate the Mayan 'football stadium', found next to the pyramid, although in reality it's neither a stadium nor was the sport football. You'll learn about the Mesoamerican ballgame, a sacred sport practised by the indigenous cultures of Mesoamerica, before visiting the warrior temple, whose forest of columns make it one of the most impressive sights in the area.
You'll have an hour and a half of free time to explore the rest of this magnificent complex at your oen pace, before heading back to hotels in Riviera Maya for 2 pm, making a quick rest stop during the journey back.
