Your small-group tour begins with hotel pickup in a luxurious Mercedes Benz van, relaxing in one of its plush reclining seats. Travel directly to Chichen Itza, without stopovers along the way so you make the most out of your time. When you arrive at Mayaland Resort, uniquely situated within steps of the archeological park of Chichen Itza, meet your guide to begin your day of exploration.
Follow your knowledgeable guide through Mayaland’s private entrance, skipping the long lines and getting a first-look at the ruins from a unique point of view. Get an introduction to the pre-Columbian Mayan way of life as you step foot inside Chichen Itza, one of the new Seven Wonders of the World.
During your 2-hour tour of this ancient city, listen as your guide explains the archaeological, historical and cultural significance of its most important temples to your group. Learn about the central area of the classic period and the northern section from the Toltec period. Stop to admire the Pyramid of Kukulcán, and see the Temple of the Warriors as well as the ball court, observatory and nunnery. When your guide leaves you to experience Chichen Itza at your own pace, make sure to visit the well-preserved smaller temples in the vicinity. Once you’ve taken your share of pictures, you’re free to use the pools and other facilities at Mayaland Resort, a multiple Condé Nast Traveler magazine winner and considered a National Geographic favorite since 1936.
