How to Choose a Chichen Itza Tour

How to Choose a Chichen Itza Tour

As Mexico’s most-visited Mayan site and one of its most important UNESCO World Heritage Sites, Chichen Itza sits at the top of many travelers’ must-visit lists in Cancun. Here are some of your best options for visiting this Wonder of the World.

For the Budget Traveler

Wallet-conscious travelers can spare their budget by opting for a small-group guided tour of the Chichen Itza archaeological site. Going with a group saves money, while still offering the intimacy and access to a guide made possible by limiting group numbers.

For the History Buff

Chichen Itza is one of Mexico’s most important archaeological sites, and those with a special interest in history can enhance their experience by touring the site with an archaeologist guide. Go first thing in the morning before the crowds arrive or in the evening to see the ancient city by day or night.

For the Outdoor Enthusiast

Spend a day enjoying the Yucatan’s outdoor wonders, both natural and manmade. After soaking up the sun on a tour of the excavated Mayan ruins, cool off in the crystal-clear waters of Cenote Ik Kil, one of the Yucatan Peninsula’s famous cenotes. 

For the Time-Crunched Visitor

Travelers on a tight schedule can make the most of their time by booking a combo tour with visits to some of the area’s top attractions all in one go. After wandering the Maya archaeological site, explore Mexican history at Xcaret, swim in a natural aquarium at Xel-Ha, or soar through the canopy on a zipline at Xplor.

Visit to Chichen Itza, Ik Kil Cenote and Valladolid with Lunch from Cancun

star-4.5
268
This full-day tour from Cancun packs a sightseeing punch—see Valladolid, a 16th-century colonial city, visit the ancient Maya civilization of Chichen Itza, a UNESCO Site, and have a chance to participate in an ancient Mayan purification ritual of Temazcal guided by a real shaman. In the archaeological zone, admire the Kukulkan pyramid and the Temple of Warriors. A guide explains the cultural importance of the landmarks you stroll past. Spend leisurely time relaxing in the peaceful cenote of Ik-Kil. With round-trip hotel transport, this is a hassle-free experience you don’t want to miss. *Please note that cenote Ik Kil is still closed and on the tour, at the moment, we will visit the cenote Selva Maya, which is very similar to Ikkil, until Ikkil is opened.
