EXPERIENCE

Visit one of the most important archaeological sites of the Yucatan Peninsula and admire the pyramid of Kukulkan.
Enjoy the tranquility of your early-morning visit before the crowds arrive. Learn how this large pre-Colombian city played an important role in Mayan civilization from around A.D. 600 to 1200, and remained a center of worship and pilgrimage until the arrival of the Spanish. Even today, it is still considered a sacred site by the Yucatán peninsula’s Maya population. Like many of ancient Mexico’s cities, the site was abandoned, and its ruins were hidden by jungle. Hear how the site was discovered and unearthed by archaeologists, gaining Unesco protection and considered today one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. Your guide will explain the philosophy, cosmology and mythology behind this ancient site, such as the meaning of the stone carvings, pyramids, platforms, ball courts and staircases. Visit the Temple of the Warriors, The Ball Game and of course, the famous El Castillo, also known as the Temple of Kukulkan.

Swim and relax in the refreshing waters of the mystical cenote. Cenotes are sacred in the Mayan culture, they were used for rituals and relaxation.
