Description

After boarding the transportation at your hotel, we will begin the route towards our first destination, Chichen Itzá!

We will see the main building known as the Kukulkan Castle or The Pyramid which is an icon of the astronomical, architectural, mathematical and engineering skills of the ancient mayans. You will see the many sculptures and representations of feathered serpents and Chaac masks (the majestic god of rain) that lives in the sacred cenote (the entrance to the underworld).

We continue to the monumental ball game with its rich engravings and glyphs and then to the Astronomical Observatory and the "The Church" which is worth admiring.

After getting to know the history of Chichen Itza, the second stop of the day will be the majestic Cenote Hubiku. Here, you will be able to cool down in its crystal clear waters. The cenote is a few meters below so you will see the entrance of the sun's rays into the water achieving a beautiful blue color.

We will finish the tour at Ek’Balam, where you will be able to climb the Acropolis and see the monumental entrance to the underworld, represented in the Uk’it Kan Lec Tok’ grave before being reborn as the mythical god of corn. The grave shows the jaws of a jaguar, 7,000 pieces of jewelry where found.
