Upon arrival at Chichen Itza at 2:00pm, head directly to the archaeological site. Once inside, we'll divide into two groups, English and Spanish speaking. You'll be taken on a 1.5 hour tour with a certified guide who will introduce you to the secrets of the Mayans. Your guide will explain the historical significance of all the most important sites before leaving you to enjoy the ruins on your own.

After, you'll have the opportunity to visit an underwater grotto and admire its beauty and unique formation. Here, you can swim in the pure, crystal clear water and enjoy the beautiful nature. Then, you'll enjoy a delicious buffet dinner with fresh salads, soups, rice, meat, chicken, fish, vegetables and regional dishes. Included are two drinks.

After dark, you'll watch a projected light shadow over the architectural elements of the building. Witness a serpent descending to the ground (equinox show), Mayan warriors playing the ball game and the sounds of life and death. This is an exciting show full of history, awesome light effects and a brief glimpse into the ancestry of the once powerful Mayan people.

Chichen Itza has been declared a human heritage site and recently designated as one of the modern wonders of the world due to its extraordinary architectural beauty and its geographical location. The ancient history combined with the lush natural landscape make Chichen Itza one destination that you cannot afford to miss while in Mexico.

It was very nice. The only downfall was we didn't get back to our hotel until 1 a.m. so when booking make sure you have nothing planned for next day! At the buffet, we did have to pay for sodas even though the voucher said it was included.

Jeg gir dette full pott, da serverdigheten Chichen Itza veier opp for alt annet. Turen var litt lang, men verd det. Besøkte en "mayan village" på veien dit, men det var ikke annet enn en stor souvernirbutikk. Med dyre souvernirer du får til halve prisen inne på ruinområdet (der er det tusenvis av selgere). Dette stoppet på en halvtime kunne de droppet. Vi stoppet også ved en cenote. Vi badet ikke, og den var ikke så imponerende som mange av de andre cenotene vi så på ferien. Dette kunne de også ha droppet. Ruinene var fantastiske og verd hele turen! Maten var grei nok, hadde 2 soft drinks inkludert, men rakk knappt nok en. Lyd og lys showet kunne vi vært foruten, men vi slapp ihvertfall å stå opp så tidlig, og vi fikk oppleve ettermiddagen ved ruinene når det tømmes for folk. Da var det enda flottere der. Denne 14 timers-turen kunne vært unnagjort på halve tiden om vi hadde droppet alle stoppene, og bare dratt direkte til ruinene. Eller vi kunne brukt tiden på ruinene, for der ble det litt knappt med tid. Buss-guiden/koordinatoren var flott, fortalte mye interessant om mayaene, (men får nok provisjon av den butikken vi stoppet ved, han reklamerte veldig for dem, men det tålte vi å høre på), guiden ved ruinene var sikkert flink, men gruppen vår ble slått sammen med annen/andre grupper, vi var for mange, så vi hørte ikke en brøkdel av hva han sa. Så: Selv om det var noen "men" på turen gir jeg denne turen full pott!! PS: Ta med niste! Ett måltid på 14 timer er ikke nok.
