Greet your guide at your Playa del Carmen hotel and begin your journey to one of the world’s most significant archeological sights. Relax during a scenic drive to Chichen Itza before stopping at a spectacular cenote. 

Disembark your vehicle at either the Ikil or Hubiku cenote and descend into the atmospheric depths of the subterranean sinkhole. Watch as iridescent natural light dances upon the water’s surface and learn the origin of the word ‘cenote’, which translates from Mayan as ‘collapsed cave.’ Plunge into the inviting waters and feel fish tickle your feet as you swim and splash. 

Arrive at Chichen Itza and split into smaller groups for an intimate tour with your personal guide. Wander the site and listen as your guide unravels Mayan mysteries and fascinating facts. 

Gaze at the iconic Kukulcan Pyramid, also known as El Castillo, and marvel at the symmetry and skillful craftsmanship of the structure. Learn about how the structure was built according to astronomical research, and discover why the 365 steps represent each day of the solar ear. Listen to the calls of exotic birds as you wander through lush vegetation and peer at a cenote with great sacrificial significance. 

Visit the colossal ball court to learn of ancient athletic events and decipher elaborate murals that depict Mayan scenes. Discover the mystifying acoustics of the ball court before hearing gruesome stories of decapitations during football games.   

After your guide has concluded the informative commentary, wander the ruins at your own pace during some relaxed free time. Return to your vehicle and journey to a local restaurant for a delicious buffet lunch; feast upon local specialties like fresh fish, spiced rice and tender meat.

After enjoying a typical Mayan meal, stop at the colonial "magic town" of Valladolid for a quick tour.

Then, relax during the return journey to your Playa del Carmen hotel.
