Let’s visit and enjoy the enigmatic archaeological site of Chichén Itzá, fabulous ceremonial centre of the Mayan Civilisations, which has been designated by UNESCO as part of the World Heritage and considered one of the New Seventh Wonder of the World. This magic journey in time will start by getting on a comfortable coach, where a certified tour guide will welcome you and, at the same time, will give you assistance and information. The first stop of your adventure will be in a Typical Restaurant where you can admire and buy the masterpieces of Mayan handcraft and you will enjoy a delicious buffet with dishes typical of the Yucatan cuisine, watching a Folkloristic Dance Show. From the restaurant you’ll be traveling to the archaeological site of Chichén Itzá, that you’ll be visiting together with your certified guide. You’ll be admiring and contemplating several buildings, such as el Mercado de las Mil Columnas, el Templo de los Guerreros with the Chacmool statue, el Juego de la Pelota, el Templo del Jaguar, and the wonderful Templo de Kukulcán, one of the most emblematic monuments of the Mayan civilisation. The Temple is a giant Mayan calendar, marking the change of seasons. On every equinox, because of the sunlight and the building’s steps, a hypnotic game of lights and shadow creates a thrilling three-dimensional optical illusion, i.e. the body of the Mayan god Kukulcán (a feathered snake) slithering smoothly from the top of the pyramid to the snake’s head located at the bottom of the building. After the Ruins perfect stop in the Hacienda Selva Maya with a wonderful cenote (Saamal) located in the middle of the jungle. You’ll visit the place and you’ll refresh yourself with a purifying swim in its sacred and crystal water. On your way back to the Mayan Riviera, you’ll have the chance to visit briefly the centre of Valladolid city, in the heart of the Yucatan Peninsula. Here you’ll be able to admire the glory of colonial Mexico shown by the architecture of its buildings.
