Day 1: Cancun – Chichen Itza (L)Meet your guide upon hotel pickup in a Mercedes Benz minivan and recline in your plush seat as you head directly to Chichen Itza. After you arrive at Mayaland Resort, located within the archeological park, skip the lines and head through the private gate toward the adjacent temples with your informative guide.
Learn all about the archaeological, historical and cultural significance of this ancient capital of the Mayan Empire – a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the new Seven Wonders of the World – as your guide conducts a 2-hour group tour of the temples. See the 78-foot (24-meter) high Pyramid of Kukulcán and the Temple of the Warriors, as well as the ball court, observatory and nunnery.
Afterward, check into your accommodation at the Mayaland Hotel or bungalow; the exclusive resort is a multiple

Or, stay on the resort grounds for a dip into the pools or a stroll through the hotel’s mile-long botanical gardens, which host a variety of native tropical plants.
In the evening, you'll have free time to do as you please - explore the grounds of the Mayaland resort or simply stargaze from your hammock and search for constellations in the quiet darkness of night.
