Private Tour to Chichen Itza Archaeological Zone & Cenote Ik-Kil
Meet your private guide to visit the Chichen Itza Archaeological Zone; the most famous and well-restored Yucatán Maya site. The morning is spent visiting the great ball court, plazas, observatory, and temples of this beautiful area. Your guide will share Chichen Itza’s troubled history as a settlement that was largely abandoned in the 9th century and then resettled almost 100 years later to then be invaded by the Toltecs from the Mexican highlands near present-day Mexico City. This brought a fusion of highland and Puuc Maya styles to Chichen Itza’s temples and buildings.
Afterwards you will enjoy time for swimming and refreshing in one of Mayan Cenotes, these are natural, enigmatic and unique in the world water holes that were once the only resource for fresh, sweet water in the local Yucatecan jungle.
