Chichén Itzá has been constructed of palaces and public squares adorned with vast salons, or galleries, and pillars. The “Ball Court” in these Mayan ruins, is the largest ball field throughout Mesoamerica.

There are a total of 12 “ball courts” in Chichén Itzá, which is the largest number for any Mayan city. Our professional guide will take you on an unforgettable journey. At the end of your tour, your driver will take you to the city of Merida.

Upon your arrival to Merida, you will have a bit of free time to rest and explore on your own. Merida is known for its magnificent buildings and architectural diversity. It’s also recognized as the “Paris of Mexico”. Buildings from the colonial period light up the evening with romance and charm.

Adventure tour to the Seven Cenotes. 

One of the highlights of this Mexico vacation package is to experience a Cenote. A natural underground reservoir of water, very common in the Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico. The word cenote comes from a Mayan word which means “cavern with water,” fitting for such vast sinkholes in natural beds of limestone.

During this full-day tour, you will discover the natural wonders of the Mayan underworld while learning about the richness of this ancient culture and enjoying new experiences.

Swim and relax in the cenotes, learn why the cenotes were considered sacred places for the Mayans, and enjoy the authentic Yucatecan flavor with a three-course meal prepared by local cooks.

Discover the natural wonders of the mystical Mayan world while learning about the ancient Mayan culture. This is a very rustic reservoir; however, it is naturally designed to deliver an incredible adventure.

Colonial City of Valladolid. 

Today you will visit the town of Valladolid, far enough off the beaten path to preserve the authentic and local feel. Valladolid is a very small and colorful colonial city. During this tour you will visit the following:

The Venados house: This is not just a private home, but it is also a national cultural site. This residence contains the largest museum-quality collection of Mexican folk art in private hands.

Suggested activity: Explore the Mayan site of Tulum. What makes this site special is the location directly by the shore. No other Mayan ruin sites have such a location. All of the ancient structures are beyond impressive when combined with their history and bewildering myths.
