How does the Day Trip work?
The Chichen Itza tour starts at your hotel at 9:00 am when we pick you up and drive to the site. Your guide will explain in depth about the beautiful architecture and the knowledge of the cosmos that the Mayan people had. You will learn about the "Sac be" or white path that takes you to the Sacred Cenote where it is believed that the mayans offered sacrifices to Chaac, the god of water.
Chichen Itza is one of the largest, and better kept mayan cities in Yucatan. People from all over the world come to Yucatan to visit this New Wonder of the World. This city is dedicated to the ancient god Kukulkan.
The mayans built it as the most amazing display of dexterity in mathematics and astronomy, with the “Kukulkan Castle” equinox phonomenom. Every equinox, as the sun goes by, it casts its shadow on the northern stairs, resembling the descent of the “Feathered Serpent” form of the god.
Chichen Itza has also a huge sinkhole called “Cenote Sagrado”, to get there you will have to walk in a “Sac be” (White Path). The “Sac be” were also used to get from one city to another, there are huge “Sac be” that go from Uxmal to Aké or other very important cities.
After visiting Chichen Itza you will be taken to a restaurant to enjoy a buffet lunch. Sometimes there are shows inside the restaurants to increase the fun! These shows usually include the traditional dance called “Jarana”. The lunch you will enjoy is mainly of traditional yucatecan dishes and snacks. Although we have to remind you drinks are not included.
Sometimes, when all of the passengers agree, there is the possibility to go to the cenote Ik Kil for a swim, but it is not guaranteed. But keep your swimming clothes by hand just in case!
Because of operation, differences lunch time and cenotes order may vary. We can guarantee you will have an amazing lunch, but neither the order, nor the cenotes are guaranteed as part of the tour.
