Full description

Discover the Mayan ruins of Chichen Itzá on a guided tour from Playa del Carmen. Immerse yourself in the jungle at an eco-park, with some time for swimming in a cenote and a hearty buffet lunch.

Start with pickup from Playa del Carmen and first travel to the jungle eco-park. Marvel at the sacred cenote as you refresh yourself with a purifying swim in crystalline waters.

Dig into a delicious buffet lunch at the restaurant at the eco-park, and be ready for a flavor sensation. Try some of the famed Mexican cuisine with regional dishes from Yucatán.

After your buffet, head to the world-famous Mayan ruins of Chichen Itzá. Take a guided tour of the ceremonial site and listen to fascinating tales of the ancient Maya civilization.

Learn more with your expert guides and hear entertaining stories of life at Chichen Itzá. Discover a culture that was way ahead of its time. Then, enjoy some free time to explore by yourself and walk in the footsteps of the Mayan people.

Your final stop is in the colonial center of Valladolid for a quick visit to this charming “Magic Town” of Mexico.

The imposing church and architecture of the town surrounding the “zocalo'' or town square are perfect photo ops and a chance to relax and enjoy the laid-back vibes of Yucatán, before heading back to Playa del Carmen.

Toller Guide. Aber elendig lange Anreise, da bei jedem Kuhdorf Leute aufgeladen werden mussten. Außerdem hatte ein nicht angekündigter Aufenthalt in einem "Maya-Dorf" nur Kaffeefahrtcharakter. Sowohl die Ruinen in Kombination mit dem sehr kundigen Guide machen vieles Wett, aber leider nicht alles. Zum Abschluss 30 Minuten Aufenthalt in Valladolid waren ebenfalls sehr kurz, da es eine sehr charmante Stadt wäre.

A tour não está pela ordem que estava descrita. Apesar de nos irem buscar ao hotel às 7 da manhã e nos levarem para um ponto de encontro com outras tours, só saímos praticamente às 9h e tal... Chegamos ao final da manhã a um centro turístico Maya com apresentação de artesanato Maya e de rituais de purificação e almoçamos aí. A comida era um buffet, podia-me repetir, era de qualidade e as bebidas á parte. Depois de almoçar fomos para o Chichén Itzá e estivemos lá 2h (1h e pouco com guia e o resto tempo livre), seguimos para o cenote saamal (50min) e por fim Valladolid onde tivemos apenas 30min já de noite. Penso que a manhã podia ter sido melhor aproveitada visto que nós foram recolher tão cedo e não havia necessidade de andar a fazer tudo tão á pressa de tarde. Mas os guias passaram muito bem a informação, autocarros confortáveis, no geral valeu bem a pena!

Good guide (Francisco), friendly who shared interesting facts about the Mayan culture. The cenote visited was beautiful but it was full of people. The trip to Valladolid is a good stop, but it takes very little time to get to know it better. But in general everything went well, not far from expectations. It's worth it considering the price.
