Chichen Itza

Chichén Itzá, the ancient city whose name means "in the mouth at the Itzáe's Well", was, in its time of grandeur (between 800 and 1200 A.D.), the centre of political, religious and military power in Yucatán, if not all of South-eastern Meso America.

In its architecture one can observe a gradual change in style, starting with the Puuc style, also shared with Uxmal and other sites in the Penninsula and cluminating with the so-called Mayan Toltec style, due to the architectural similiarities with Tula, capital of the Ancient Toltecs, and with other sites in Central Mexico, such as Oaxaca and the Gulf Coast.

Chichén Itzá was a large city with a great many inhabitants, distributed around the architectural nucleii which we observe as ruins, who had a relatively easy access to the water coming from the various caves and Cenotes of the region.


In Mayan means "Inlet". Nature’s sacred paradise. Eco-Archaeological park developed around the inlet (underground river natural spring) used by the ancient Mayans to sail to the island of Cozumel for commerce and religious purposes. Entrance includes swimming in the Underground and The Mayan Village Rivers, Snorkeling in the Inlet, visiting The Butterfly Pavilion, The Aviary, The Reef Aquarium, The Sea Turtles Lakes, The Orchid Greenhouse, The Mushroom Farm, The Tower, archaeological sites and many other wonderful attractions.

Additionally, there are different optional activities such as The Snorkeling Tour, The Scuba Diving Tour, Diving Courses, The Snuba, The Streak, Horse-Back Riding, Dolphin Programs (Interactive, Educational and Swimming) and many activities more. At sunset, Xcaret turns into a fantastic place.

Be part of this journey into the past, enjoy the Mexican fair and snacks in your way to the "Great Tlachco" (Ball Court in Mayan) where you will be delighted with the best of Mexican folklore with over 200 artists including The Famous Mayan Ball Game (never played again in 800 years), all this shall sow emotions and memories that will last you a life time.
