Full description
Visit the ruins of Chichén Itzá, one of largest and most important ancient Mayan cities, on a convenient, guided express tour that includes transport to and from the site and leaves you with plenty of time for other activities following your excursion. Learn about the fascinating history of the ancient Mayans and the temples of Chichén Itzá before getting some free time to explore on your own.

Your guided tour of Chichén Itzá will introduce you to the complex's many temples, including El Castillo, which is also known as the Temple of Kukulcan—a Mayan feathered serpent deity. After the guided tour, wander the grounds at your leisure, making your own discoveries. Perhaps you find the Temple of Warriors, or El Caracol, an observatory with a spiral staircase made from stone that conjures images of a snail. Or try to locate all thirteen of the ball courts to be found in Chichén Itzá where a popular Mesoamerican ball game was played. At the end of the tour, enjoy quick and worry-free back to your hotel.
