per adult Price is C$72

With this morning access, you will unlock the secrets of the ancient Mayan civilisation as you explore Chichén Itzá with an expert guide. Tucked deep in the Yucatan jungle, this UNESCO World Heritage Site is filled with the weathered remains of temples, tombs, and pyramids that date back to the 8th century.

Get a head start, waking up early to beat the crowds, and experience Chichén Itzá in the cool morning hours. Follow your guide between sites as you explore the evolution of Maya architecture, from the early Puuc styles to Chenes forms. Admire the looming facade of the pyramid El Castillo, imagine the players of ancient ball games on the site's massive courts, and discuss impressions of the afterlife at the entrances of tombs.

Along the way, uncover how Chichén Itzá was constructed in stages over hundreds of years. Learn how archeologists use it to help understand diversity in a Pre-Columbian Maya world. When you're ready for a break, find a patch of shade at the edge of the surrounding jungle and head back to your hotel.

4.4 out of 5

5/5 Jan 17, 2019

This is the best tour and the best value, especially for those who can get up early! We did have to meet at 5:15am at the HM Hotel in Playa del Carmen. The mini bus left exactly at 5:15am. So we were glad to be early. Marco is informational and awesome! A few tips: 1- you can use the bathroom at the hotel where you wait. Just ask. 2-we transferred to a larger bus about halfway to the site. (none of this was explained in English,don't worry) Marco saved us all seats together. Then he gave lots of great info on the way. 3-Yes, we did have to pay an extra $184 pesos each in cash on the day of the tour, but we did not have $23US to pay at the site 4-they provide a small lunch, but we suggest that you bring some extra food 5-we called to confirm and they also sent an email in advance There was a bonus stop briefly in a Mayan village along the way. Don't worry, you will still arrive just as the site opens.
