What To Expect

Chichen Itza
After boarding the transportation at your hotel and a technical stop of 10 minutes, we’ll begin the route towards our first destination: Chichén Itzá.
The main building is the Kukulkan Castle, known as The Pyramid. It is an icon of the astronomical, architectural, mathematical and engineering knowledge and, together with the platforms, they tell us about the past, with their many sculptures and representations of feathered serpents and Chaac masks, the majestic god of rain that lives in the sacred cenote.
Other places like the monumental Ball Game, The Astronomical Observatory, also known as The Snail and the area of The Church are worth admiring, thanks to their masks from the Mayan classic period. Come and explore with us this World Cultural Heritage Site!

Cenote Saamal
The second stop of the day will be in Cenote Saamal, after getting to know the history of Chichén Itzá. Here, you will be able to cool off in its water and have a relaxing time that you will surely remember forever. The cenote is subterranean, and we will enter it through its stone stairway. Thanks to its opening at the top, with the entrance of the sunlight, the water achieves a beautiful blue color.

We will finish the tour at Ek Balam, where you can appreciate The Acropolis and its monumental entrance to the underworld, represented in the Uk’it Kan Lec Tok’ grave before being reborn as the mythical god of corn. The grave shows the jaws of a jaguar, flanked by a couple of Mayan “angels” and within it, the archeologists found an offering consisting of more than 7,000 pieces of jewelry in it, made by the best goldsmiths of the time.

Wonderful Tour, not to be missed

Our tour guide Jeorge was absolutely fantastic! He was so full of knowledge about the Maya and the local history, as you would expect, but he was also fun and passionate about sharing his knowledge.

We had read reviews of other tours stating how some of our stops may be busy, but Jeorge had timed our tour perfectly to keep us out of the hot sun and out of the crowds.

Chichen Itza was wonderful and the Hubiku swim was just beautiful - our lunch at this stop was delicious and all of the local staff friendly - Jeorge knew everyone and made sure we were looked after.

At our final stop, we were guided through the beautiful ancient acropolis- Jeorge allowing us to take our time climbing the many steps and pointing out every small detail along the way.

When we returned to our resort, Jeorge gave us so many helpful tips for another day trip we had planned - which was really appreciated!

Our driver was safe and our pick ups were prompt too :-)

Highly recommend - this is not only excellent value for money but we also visited some hidden gems at hibuku and EkBalam and we were looked after by a lovely team :-)
