Key Information

Description

Departing from Cancun or the Riviera Maya, this full-day tour will first take you to one of the most important Mayan sites — the spectacular Chichen Itza. Chichen Itza is an archeological site built by the Maya people of the Terminal Classic period. In 2007, its Temple of Kukulcán (El Castillo) was named one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. Then, transport your senses to the origin of regional cuisine through a unique gastronomic demonstration — one of the larger Mayan legacies. Delight in Mayan flavors and smells, and see the traditional uses of plants, vegetables, and local fauna, which transcends frontiers and showcases the culinary diversity of Mexico. You'll also have the opportunity to refresh and relax in the spectacular Ik Kil Cenote, with its stunning deep-blue and transparent waters. Without a doubt, it's one of the most amazing cenotes in the Yucatan Peninsula. Before your tour ends, you can also expect a city sightseeing stop at Valladolid town — a small, quiet town brimming with charm and culture. Enjoy free time to explore the beautiful colonial town on your own!
