What to Expect

Your tour begins with pickup in the early morning, when you’ll board an air-conditioned coach and receive a light breakfast. Head straight to Chichen Itza, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the New7Wonders of the World, and arrive before the midday crowds.

Inside, you’ll visit highlights such as El Castillo (Kukulcan Pyramid) and the Ball Court, and learn about the function of the archaeological site in Maya civilization. Then, continue to Cenote Hubiku to refresh in it waters.

Next up is Ek Balam, a lesser-known collection of Maya ruins. Climb to the top of ancient temples and admire frescoes that depict the Maya underworld as your guide tells you about the history of the area. Your tour concludes with drop-off back in Playa del Carmen.

Unfortunately no, because some bad tourists ruined it for the rest of us. You can not walk on or up the pyramids at Chichen Itza anymore. At Ek Balam you can but it is a tough climb.
