Discover the Mayan Wonders – Chichén Itzá, Cenote & Valladolid
On this tour you will have the complete Maya experience, visiting Chichén Itzá, the most iconic Mayan architectural site, one of the most spectacular Cenotes and a visit to vibrant Valladolid. We recommend this tour to those who love history and culture. The impressive and monumental restoration of Chichen Itza gives us an insight into the grandeur of this ancient Mayan city. The subsequent visit to the colonial city of Valladolid and its wonderful history are the perfect combination of past and present. You will experience a day of authentic Yucatecan / Mexican culture.
Chichén Itzá, literally 'mouth of the well of the Itzáes' in Mayan, is an awe inspiring ruin well worth a visit for its spectacular, iconic structures and historical significance, despite the large amount of visitors. Visible even from out of space Ek' Balam, Chichén is the most important of all Maya sites in Mexico. To fully experience all the details and colorful history we we include the service of an English speaking, knowledgeable guide.
At the vernal and autumnal equinoxes (around March 20 and September 22), the morning and afternoon sun rays produces a light-and-shadow illusion of the serpent ascending or descending the side of El Castillo’s staircase. During these two dates the site is usually crowded with visitors and we recommend visiting the week before and after the equinoxes, which will have similar effects. During the rest of the year these effects are re-created nightly (except Mondays) with light and sound shows.
One of our friendly bi-lingual drivers and guides will pick you up from your hotel between 7:00am and 8:00am. Sit back and relax as we head towards our first destination - Chichén Itzá.

You will have the full experience as our guide fills you in on all the details and colorful history.
Our next destination will be a welcome refreshment after the heat of Chichén Itzá, as we enter an impressive Cenote of singular beauty. Yokdzonot is the name of the community that, through a cooperative, seeks to show off the beauty of its Cenote in a responsible way. In Yokdzonot we will be served various ¨antojitos yucatecos¨, exquisite regional snacks, which will replenish our energy and last us till lunch time in Valladolid, where we visit a prestigious restaurant in its scenic main square.
Valladolid, Mexico is an incredible hidden gem located deep in Mexico’s Yucatan jungle where the past and the present combine to delight us with spectacular views of its beautiful and colorful colonial architecture, beautiful people and where we can enjoy its delicious cuisine. A walk through the main neighborhoods will give you a feeling of the colonial history of the area. After taking this tour, you will be able to say that you have visited the “real” Mexico.
We will return to the hotel between 6:30pm and 7:00pm.
