Full description

Travel back in time as you explore the Mayan  archeological ruins of Chichén Itzá on a guided tour. Connect with nature as you swim in the azure waters of the cenote of Saamal. Eat a mouth-watering buffet lunch and take a guided walking tour of Valladolid.

Benefit from pick-up at your hotel, or a nearby meeting point, and then journey to one of the most important monuments on the Yucatán Peninsula.   Upon arrival at Chichén Itzá, look at the step pyramid of Kukulcan (El Castillo), known for the play of light from the equinox that casts shadows on each step to create an image of a serpent descending.   Go to the ancient cenote of Saamal and experience one of the sinkholes that form part of a network of underground rivers sacred to the Maya people. Enjoy a delicious buffet meal and take a stroll around the colonial city of Valladolid to complete your experience.

Wonderful tour. Sammy the guide and his team Alexis and Ruth were excellent. Take a mask as it is required for entry (if not 20 pesos to buy), Also would recommend packing some snacks as the drive is over 3 hours and you will be hungry by the time you get there. You are not allowed to take food into Chichen Itza site but have the option of buying before or after the tour and there is a snack bar inside. The buffet at the Cenote was delicious and the Cenote swimming experience itself was the most amazing/enjoy part for the kids. Would highly recommend this tour.

Our guides Rey and Alan, and driver Alexis were amazing, sharing information and history about the region and culture on the bus ride there, and giving a detailed guided tour of the ruins. Stopping off at the cenote on the way back was also another highlight, a great chance to cool off in a beautiful spot! 100% recommend the tour with this team, it wouldn't have been the same if we did it by ourselves.
