What you can expect

Travel back in time as you journey through the remarkable ruins of Chichén Itzá. Enjoy a guided tour of the ancient Maya capital, one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. Explore the city's sacred temples and impressive pyramids as your expert guide helps you unravel the mysteries of the Maya civilization.

Head to Cozumel's main pier and meet your guide and fellow excursionists for the ferry ride to Playa del Carmen. After a scenic, 35-minute cruise, arrive at the pier, where you climb aboard your comfortable coach and make your way to the UNESCO-listed Chichén Itzá archaeological site. Marvel at the powerful temple of Kukulcan, also known as El Castillo.

Twice a year on each solstice, the sun hits this dazzling stepped pyramid at just the right angle, so the shadows create a snake that winds down the steps. Walk a bit farther and find yourself standing in the middle of the largest ball court in the Americas. Learn about the ritual aspects of the ancient Mesoamerican ball game, then pose in front of the Temple of a Thousand Columns or take a picture of the Observatory, El Caracol.

After an exciting day of archaeological discovery, enjoy a savory lunch of typical Yucatecan cuisine at a nearby restaurant and learn about culture and lifestyles of the ancient Maya. Board the bus for your journey back to the modern world, reflecting on the awe-inspiring sights of the day.
