Merida - Chichen Itza - Playa Del Carmen

Journey with us from Merida to Chichen Itza, the fabled Maya citadel of the Yucatan, on a stunning day trip. Join us in discover one of the most well-preserved Maya archaeological sites in the country. Explore this mighty citadel and several legendary structures including the Kukulkan pyramid.

After picking you up from your hotel in Merida we'll travel to Chichen Itza, enjyoing the scenery along the way. Upon arrival we'll begin our tour, visit Kukulkan, also known as El Castillo, which is a giant Maya calendar with exactly 365 steps divided among 4 staircases and the pyramid’s highest platform. During both equinoxes (around March 21st & September 21st) the sun’s shadow cast on this pyramid at a perfect angle creates the illusion of a serpent creeping its way along the structure’s northern staircase.

We'll also get to see the Gran Juego de Pelota, in which ancient Maya warriors battled to the death in this ceremonial game. Check out the acoustics of the structure by holding a conversation with someone standing 135 meters away at the opposite end of the field and see the stone carvings of players in action. Feel the spirit of the Maya world by standing here admiring this unique and majestic construction that was once of monumental importance to the former inhabitants here.

Other impressive structures you can’t miss are the Plataforma de los Craneos (Skull Platform) and the Cenote Sagrado (Sacred Cave). Check out the impressive stone carvings on other pyramids and temples of jaguars, flowers, birds, trees, eagles and among the more gruesome, human sacrifices and human hearts in the clutches of bird claws. The observatory, El Caracol, named The Snail for its spiral staircase, was once an important point from which priests determined important dates for ceremonies and rituals.

After the tour of Chichen Itza, we'll transfer you to Playa Del Carmen
