What To Expect
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!

The second stop of the day is Cenote Saamal. This is one of the accidents caused by the impact of a meteorite against the Yucatan Peninsula and it was an essential part for the active life of Chichen Itzá. Nowadays, it’s open to the public for the delight of visitors from all around the world.
Swimming in the waters of Cenote Saamal is sharing part of an ancient purification in a place that Mayans considered the perpetual dwelling of Chaac, god of the water and the rain. Cooling off in its waters is entering the eternity, being reborn and rejuvenating in an ancestral mysticism.

Zona Arqueologica de Coba
Afterwards, we’ll resume our tour towards Cobá. It is a 1-hour journey to arrive to a place which it’s considered one of the most important cities in the period of glory of the Mayan civilization. With about 50,000 inhabitants at its peak and a total area of 80 km2, there are many iconographic power monuments in its representations and internal and external zac beoobs (white paths) that connect buildings and cities among themselves. The longest path is runs 100 kilometers and reaches Yaxuna, another Mayan city.

Our guide Felix was very knowledgeable about the history. Great guide . Only negative thing I was unhappy about was last minute time change. Left later therefore we got back later and missed some of our activities that we were going to do at the resort.
Fun and educational
Great tour guide! Ober was friendly and knowledge. I would have liked more time at chichen itza, but the day was fun and i learned a lot.
Pastor was our guide and gave us tons of interesting information about each of our stops. We loved it
Tour guide was wonderful. Easy to understand and kept everything on track. Only issue is that the tour operators know ahead of time about all the extra taxes so it would be nice if that was added into the cost at the beginning instead of having to pay all these extra charges day of. The cenote was wonderful, wish we had more time there but lunch took up 40 min of the 1.5 hours so we didnt have a lot of time to swim. Overall a fun day
My wife and I had a great time. It is a long day of travel but you can't change where the ruins are! Our tour guide Obert was great. Very knowledgeable and friendly. We loved both ruin sites. Both had a completely different feel to them and their own unique history. The cenote was beautiful and a perfect break to the day. Our only complaint is the van seats were extremely uncomfortable and made the drive time a little unpleasant. Overall I would recommend this tour!
