The famous pyramids, believed to have been founded in early 400 A.D. were designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1988. Chichen Itzá reveals much about the merging of the Maya and Toltec cultures, rituals and their views of: the universe, architecture and an unexplainable of knowledge of science.
Traveling to the ruins by small plane is a once in a lifetime experience and arriving before the large groups of tour buses and the heat of the day is a true privilege. The aerial views of the pyramids are breathtaking and at less than 45-minutes from Holbox the most exciting and efficient way to traverse the dense jungle.
Start with an early breakfast at the hotel and a boxed lunch to-go then return in time for drinks and a siesta here at the hotel in the early afternoon. The local guides speak several languages and are very entertaining.
