Full description
Your be Maya experience will begin with a pick-up in a luxurious Mercedes Benz from the lobby of your hotel for the designated departure point (TBA). A light box lunch breakfast will be provided on-board.

Be part of an authentic Mayan ceremony and testify the offerings that only a high Maya priest may initiate. Then, discover the secrets of Maya cuisine. Be taught and guided on how to prepare one of the most traditional dishes of the Maya of Yucatan, the pollo pibil. The binary number system used in computers today were invented by the Maya. Learn its basic principles and understand their numerology. Your journey will continues as you witness the movie "The Maya Universe," a new digital planetarium film produced by the Chabot Space & Science Center. The presentation will give you a better understanding of the significance of their temples, just before you walk to them for your visit to the Maya's most holy city, Chichén Itzá (ticket to archeological site not included).

Accompanied by a professional, government certified bilingual guide, learn about the historical significance of all of the most important temples of the classic Maya central area (not visited by most of the other visitors to Chichén Itzá) as well as the Maya Toltec northern section, site of the most visited temples. Enjoy the pollo pibil you prepared earlier. Your home in the heart of Chichén Itza, the Mayaland resort is privileged to have an all-Maya group of collaborators that will enrich your experience with their participation by sharing their language, costumes and ways of life with you. You will treasure this experience; one you will share with loved ones and your friends back home.
