CHICHÉN ITZÁ, the Mayan Wonder of Mexico

Our excursion to Chichen Itza from Puerto Morelos is the perfect combination of culture and fun, as you visit one of the most spectacular monuments in Mexico. Our transportation is comfortable and all of them are air-conditioned to make your experience as pleasant as possible.

This place is truly amazing. It is wonderful how the Mayans used mathematics to create the perfect buildings. I was excited to see this location after so much anticipation. The ruins are incredible and it will be a great place to buy souvenirs 🙂

There are so many incredible details about the architecture and astronomy that are easy to miss when you don’t have an expert guide in the area. Our favorite was the quetzal noise the temple makes when it claps its hands. The wonder of the Mayan/Toltec architecture is unlike any I have seen on earth.

Usually on our excursion to Chichen Itza from Puerto Morelos we spend about 2 hours, divided as follows, 1 hour with a certified guide who will explain the importance of the temples and the Mayan civilization and the rest of the time is to explore the place, passing once again by the most interesting places and taking as many pictures as possible to have a nice souvenir of this place.

Cenote IKKIL ( Yucatan Peninsula – Chichen Itza – Mexico )

An excursion in the jungle is synonymous of long walks, rocky floors and a face to face confrontation with the heat. Don’t let yourself be scared by the “inconveniences” that Mother Nature may put in your way. Rather, think of it as part of the adventure of being an explorer in the middle of the jungle. Besides, any discomfort can be easily solved by carrying the right equipment, i.e.: cool clothes, comfortable shoes, hat, sunglasses and enough water to drink.

This is perhaps one of the most important things to remember during your trip to Chichén Itzá. Take a brief moment during your visit and plant your feet on the ground. Look up at the sky and smile. Be thankful that life has offered you the opportunity to find yourself situated in such a fantastic place as Chichén Itzá. Not many can enjoy an experience like this. Explore, learn, take cliché photos… do all that, but above all, enjoy your visit!

There is no doubt that getting up early was completely worth it. On the contrary, the idea of returning to your bed and leaving Chichén Itzá behind leaves a trace of melancholy. Nevertheless, the sweet memory of a fantastic experience will remain in your mind and heart. Of course, this trip could not have had the same pleasant feeling if you had not remembered these details. They may be obvious to many and others may think they are unimportant, but believe us when we say they will make a big difference.

Chichen Itza is one of the most important archaeological sites in Mexico and was, during its heyday, the political, religious and cultural center of the Maya. Its name means “mouth of the well of the Itzaes” and it is one of the New Seven Wonders of the World.

Cenotes are aquatic depressions that are the gateway to one of the longest subway river systems in the world. They can be open or closed and are natural pools in the middle of the jungle.

In the archaeological zone is the so-called “Sacred Cenote”, which has a diameter of about 60 meters and a depth of 15 meters and it is estimated that it was a pilgrimage point of the Mayan world, where rituals were practiced and offerings were made to the gods.

Astronomy is one of the major concerns of the Maya, and this building, also known as “Caracol” because of the spiral staircase inside, is attributed an astronomical function, since the openings of its walls were oriented towards Venus and other stars.

From Playa del Carmen you have to take a recently inaugurated road that goes through the jungle until it connects with the highway. This trip is 50 km long and can be done in a short time because the road is good and there is hardly any traffic. Then you have to continue another 120 km along the highway, which looks like a ghost road because there are hardly any cars, as local drivers tend to avoid it due to its high price. The toll between Playa and Chichén Itzá (there are two) is 283 pesos (17 euros).

The ruins of Chichén Itzá are the best preserved and restored ruins in the Yucatán peninsula. As soon as you enter, the first thing you see is the Temple of Kukulcan, the great pyramid of Chichen Itza, undoubtedly one of the most recognizable archaeological remains, not only in Mexico, but in the world.

In addition to the pyramid, the central area of the archaeological complex hides other treasures such as the nearby Temple of the Warriors or the Group of the Thousand Columns. However, the most imposing construction is the Great Ball Court, the largest of all the Mayan civilization. It is an authentic stadium formed by two long stone walls decorated with the rings through which the players had to pass the ball with one objective: to defeat the rival and for the captain of the team to achieve the prize of being sacrificed.
