Chichen Itza Tour
Cancun Snorkel Tour




Now we offer you the unique opportunity to tour the famed Mayan ruins sites of Chichen Itza and Ek Balam in the same day!   We will start out with a guided tour of the Ek Balam ruins site, dating back to about 100 B.C.  You can even climb the great pyramid here, great views!

After a nice buffet lunch, we are revitalized and ready to explore the most famous of the Mayan ruins sites of Playa del Carmen, Chichen Itza.  Named a "World Wonder", you can imagine why.  You will not believe that this was built some 1500 years ago, amazing!

Chichen Itza

Ek Balam

Your expert archaeological tour guide will amaze you with stories of these highly advanced people who disappeared from these futuristic cities without a trace around 1200 A.D.  Your guided tour will last about 1.5 hours and then you will have some time to explore on your own.  We visit Chichen Itza last, after the tour buses have mostly gone, so you will have less crowds to deal with, nice! 

Our last stop on the tour is at a cenote, an ancient underground well that was once sacred to the Mayans.  We will take a short time to cool off with a swim and take photos here, and then we will return to Playa del Carmen.

Cruise Passengers:  This tour is not compatible with most cruise schedules.  We suggest visiting Tulum or Coba instead.

Schedule:  Thursdays only at 8:00 AM.   Exact pick-up time varies depending on the location of your hotel, but will be specified on your tour voucher.
