Chichen Itza Tour



ADULTS: $265.50  KIDS: $75.50

Get ready to embark on a Mayan Ruins expedition to the legendary lost city of Chichen Itza!  This tour picks you up from your Riviera Maya hotel, and takes you to Chichen Itza, where you will enjoy a delicious buffet lunch at the famous Mayaland hotel, with entertainment from traditional folkloric dancers and singers.

After lunch, you will embark on a guided tour of the Chichen Itza archaeological site, with your government certified English-speaking guide.  You will be amazed at the stories and the architectural prowess of the ancient Mayans.

Mayan Ruins at Night

Your Hotel Lobby

Once the guided portion of the tour is over, you will have free time to explore the ruins and take photographs, or you can opt to check in to your room at the Mayaland Hotel, ranked by Conde Nast traveler as the # 1 hotel in Cancun and the Riviera Maya in 2003, and as one of the top 100 hotels in the world.  This tour is a really great deal.  Normal Price for a bungalow at the Mayaland Hotel ONLY is $170.00 per night. 

The Mayaland sits adjacent to the ruins site, within easy walking distance to the ruins.  At the hotel, enjoy the swimming pool, bar, restaurant, and more.  That evening, you can enjoy the Chichen Itza Light & Sound Spectacular*, and then in the morning, we recommend you rise early and see the ruins at their most mystical - at dawn.  Long before the crowds have arrived, you'll have the run of the place, it's really amazing.  You'll have the whole day to do as you please, before returning to the Riviera Maya at about 4:00 PM the next day.

*NOTE: Due to renovations at Chichen Itza the Light & Sound Show is temporarily unavailable.
