What To Expect

Cenote Saamal
You can swim, if you wish, in this beautiful sacred cenote of the Mayan Culture and immerse yourself in its crystalline and refreshing waters. The cenotes, also known as "eyes of water" were of great importance for the Mayans, from a ceremonial point of view to for survival.

60 minutes • Admission Ticket Included

Chichen Itza
Here you will have a guided tour of the Mayan ceremonial center Chichén Itzá accompanied by one of our certified guides, later you will have free time to get to know the Mayan city on your own.

2 hours • Admission Ticket Not Included

Temple of the Warriors
The Temple of the Warriors is one of the most impressive and important structures in Chichen Itza. It may be the only known Late Classic Maya building large enough to hold truly large gatherings.

10 minutes • Admission Ticket Included

El Caracol
The so-called Caracol or Observatory is a structure built in the form of a larger circular tower sitting on a platform with a central staircase. The base rests on another rectangular platform, decorated with a cornice with rounded corners at the top. El Caracol is actually built with three superimposed buildings.

10 minutes • Admission Ticket Included

Gran Juego de Pelota
The Ball Game was more of a ceremonial ritual than a sport and probably represented the symbolic recreation of the mythical combat between night and day. There is a unique acoustic phenomenon in the ballcourt: if one speaks in the temple at the southern end, the voice can be heard at the opposite end, as the sound reverberates along the walls of the northern temple.

10 minutes • Admission Ticket Included

Templo de Kukulkan
The Castle or Pyramid of Kukulcan is a four-sided pyramid, with a rectangular temple on top. The phenomenon of light and shadow, a worthy testimony to the amazing progress of the Mayans in architecture and astronomy, is the phenomenon of "light and shadow" that takes place on the north stairway of the Castle during the Spring Equinox where it can be seen from a snake down the stairs. The sun casts seven triangles of light on the balustrade on the northeast side of the Castle. These begin to move up and down the length of the balustrade to form the silhouette of a descending serpent.

30 minutes • Admission Ticket Included

We will make a brief visit to the main square of the beautiful picturesque town of Valladolid named as Magical Town for preserving the architecture and traditions of the locals.
*If the health authorities of the place do not allow the descent, a brief stop will be made only above the transport.
