Full description

Go see some sights while visiting the Cancun area with this day trip to Chichen Itza and Ek Balam. See an ancient wonder and take a refreshing swim in a cenote.

Be among the first visitors of the day to explore Chichen Itza. Let your guide broaden your knowledge of archeology and Mayan culture. Imagine how the Mayans once lived in this city.

Stroll through the well-preserved ruins as your guide tells you about Mayan mythology, philosophy, and cosmology. Gain a deeper understanding of the meanings behind the stone sculptures and platforms.

After admiring the views, take a break in the Cenote Saamal. Get a break from the heat with a refreshing swim right next to its waterfall. When you're finished with your swim, savor a Mexican buffet lunch.

Our guide Daniel accompanied us very nicely throughout the day and told us a lot of interesting information about the Mayan ruins and the Mayan culture itself. We found it particularly good that we were in chichen itza in the morning, when the temperatures were still moderate for Mexico. The bus was well air-conditioned, the food was tasty and nobody was intrusive at the Maya shop, where we could look around after the meal. We booked this tour because we wanted to see two ruins so it was perfect for us. We had our baby with us and it was also received very nicely and breastfeeding on the bus was no problem at all. The stay in Ek Balam is a bit shorter, but that's quite pleasant in the afternoon. We got to the hotel around 7pm, which was also a comfortable time to return. All in all, the tour is really highly recommended for anyone interested in the Mayan ruins. The tour group consisted of 13 people, which was also pleasant.
