2/10  Tour the ancient Mayan city of Chichén Itzá

You can’t visit the Yucatan Peninsula without paying homage to its most remarkable marvel: the mythical Mayan city of Chichén ItzáThousands of visitors every year make the pilgrimage to stare in awe at the legendary El Castillo pyramid, the Temple of a Thousand Warriors or the eerie tzompantli skull carvings: just a hint of the archaeological collection which makes this one of Mexico’s most important UNESCO World Heritage sites.

Discover Chichén Itzá in an in depth historical tour which takes in six centuries of Mayan civilisation, gets to the heart of colonial history in the great city of Valladolid, reveals mysteries hidden in sacred Zaci Cenote and then treats you to a traditional Yucatan feast in one of the Peninsula’s loveliest mansions. It’s hard to predict a favourite for kids out of all of the wonders, but Chichén Itzá’s Great Ball Court tends to wins hands down with teens.

Good to know

The tour includes the comfort of an air conditioned bus and multi-lingual guides to explain the mysteries of Chichén Itzá.
