Take a walk through one of the Seven Wonders of the World, through the history of one of the great civilizations that shaped a continent through millennia. Learn about their life, religion, architecture and astronomic mastery. We'll visit the pyramid of Kukulkan - an incredible construction designed with mathematical precision to serve as a calendar as well as a proof of power for the elite, and a show for the masses. Stop at the Observatory, a unique circular construction that served to study the orbit of planet Venus; a planet they worshipped as the Sun’s twin. Admire the magnificence of the Great ball court, which is the largest ever built by any Mesoamerican culture and was central in the religious and social life of the Maya, Aztec, Toltec and every other pre-Columbian civilization throughout thousands of years. These and other amazing temples and structures are waiting for you to discover in Chichen Itza; the city of the wizards of the water, and the epicenter of the cult to Kukulkan; the feathered serpent.

The experience overall was great. There a lot of animals to see and a few to touch, the ATV ride is amazing, the route is so rocky so we got our dose of sensations! The cenote was also great and the guides have been very friendly and helpful with interesting facts about the animals and the cenote. The only 2 things we are disappointed about are 1: it says the insurance for the ATV is included but they made us pay it again there saying that it was a mistake on the ticket and it is actually not included! Couldn’t ve bothered to argue and delay all our group so we paid but really not happy. 2: we thought we would have more contacts with monkeys when actually it is only 1 which is trained to be in contact with us. The monkey was cute and the experience was great but felt a bit ripped off when you see the pics of people with a lot of monkeys on the website.

After we downloaded the app and also loaded Google Maps offline, the app worked great. The speaker called automatically when you were at an important point. It was easy to find your way around. The explanations were told in a way that was easy to understand. We were able to admire the old buildings at our own pace. Take a break. Go to the cenote, there are hardly any guides. I would recommend it

Thoroughly enjoyed myself! Only thing was the distance from our resort and the mosquitos other than that 10/10 would definitely recommend!!!

Persone disponibili e attente, si vede che fanno il loro lavoro con amore
