Arriving in Chichen Itza, a specialized guide will give you a detailed tour of the site, enjoying the tranquility of your morning visit before the crowds. Throughout the tour, your guide will provide archaeological essential background so you better understand the history of Chichen Itza.
Discover how this large pre-Columbian city played an important role in the Mayan civilization around 600 AD to 1200, and remained a center of worship and pilgrim-age until the arrival of the Spaniards. Even today, it is still considered sacred by the Mayan people of the Yucatan site. Like many of the cities of ancient Mexico, the site was abandoned, and its ruins were hidden in the jungle.
This archaeological site has earned the protection of UNESCO and today it’s considered one of the New Seven Wonders of the World.
