What to Expect
Chichen Itza, one of the great cities of the Mayan empire, was active from the 7th-10th centuries A.D. On this tour you’ll have the chance to admire the Castillo, the Temple of the Warriors, the Group of a Thousand Columns and the Sacred Cenote, or natural waterhole.
This ancient Mayan city is one of the major archaeological sites of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula. Its main buildings are important relics of Mayan civilization.
The architecture that has survived to this day demonstrates a clear Toltec influence. The god who presides over the site, according to Mayan mythology, is Kukulcan, the Maya representation of Quetzalcoatl, the god of the cemetery, taken from Toltec culture.
Chichen Itza was a either a city or a ceremonial center that went through several construction periods and was significantly influenced by the different peoples that occupied it and led it from its inception.
