Chichen Itza Ruins Tour by Mayaland

from £74 per person

Chichen Itza, founded in the year 514 AD, was once the capital of the ancient Mayan civilization and was recently declared one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World. Visit Chichen Itza in style and enjoy the amenities of the Mayaland Hotel, the only hotel close enough to the ruins to have its own, private entrance.

The ruins are steeped in a magical history of bloody rituals of human sacrifice, a warrior culture, astrological discovery and elaborately constructed Maya-Toltec buildings.

After hotel pick up*, you'll arrive at the Mayaland Hotel and head directly to the archaeological site through hotel’s private gate. At the site, a certified tour guide will take you on a 1.5 - 2hr hour tour exploring the secrets of this ancient Mayan civilization. Your guide will explain the historical significance of all the most important monuments before leaving you to explore the site at your own pace.

A shower and a dip in the cool Mayaland Hotel resort pool after a hot day at the ruins is truly a gift - not to mention a lounge chair to rest your feet whilst you sip an ice cold drink.

After your first visit to the ruins, you can enjoy a delicious buffet lunch at the Mayaland Hotel serving traditional Yucatan dishes and other specialties including beef, chicken, fish, hamburgers and a salad bar.The afternoon is yours to enjoy with a return to the ruins, a dip in the pool, time to relax on a lounge chair, or a stroll through the Mayaland Hotel’s meticulously groomed tropical gardens.
