Full description

Explore the ruins at Chichen Itza with a guide on a full-day tour from Cancun and/or Playa del Carmen. Choose between a private or small-group tour and beat the crowds and the heat with early morning access. Learn about the history of Mexico with insightful commentary from your guide of one of the New 7 Wonders of the World.

Start your adventure with an early pick-up from Cancun or Playa del Carmen. Beat the crowds and the heat as you arrive at the ancient ruins of Chichen Itza. Follow your guide around the once-bustling complex, learning about the rich history, religion, culture, and daily life of the Maya.

Wander around the Mexican pyramids, gaze at the spectacular stone carvings, and taking photos by the glorious steps of the ruins. Board an air-conditioned vehicle and leave right before the morning gets too warm and the crowds increase. Head to the charming town of Piste for a quick look around before making your way to Cenote Ik Kil. Marvel at its stunning views, take photos of the turquoise waters and lush vegetation, and maybe squeeze in a quick dip before going for lunch.

After filling your belly with some local food, board the vehicle once more and make your way back to Cancun and Riviera Maya with nothing but knowledge and memories to remember your adventure by.

    Our tour guide Jacqueline was AMAZING!! I loved every moment of it, she was so knowledgeable and warm (and funny!) and really took care of us all. Negatives were that the extra costs were not clearly shown on Get Your Guide. It was never clearly stated how much extra in entrance fees I had to pay until the end of the trip. I barely had enough cash to pay for the extras which meant I gave the tour guide less of a tip than I thought was deserved. This is 100% the fault of the website. I’ve double checked and there is nothing in my reservation which states the extra costs

    We were picked up as agreed and it was really a small group, the tour guide was very, very friendly and the driver just like that so Jacky is really great! They told us everything about the Mayan interesting things in general, also about mexico and cenote it was great to see and the food there was really delicious .. I can only recommend the tour!

    Super Tour. Vero unser Guide war super freundlich und hat viel erzählt. Waren eine kleine Gruppe mit 8 Leuten. Das war ideal. Lediglich beim heimfahren ging dem Fahrer der Benzin aus. Mussten dann 25 Minuten warten. Waren zum Glück direkt bei einer Mautstation kurz vor Playa del Carmen. Würden die Tour weiterempfehlen. Aber hoffentlich habt ihr einen anderen Fahrer.
