The ball game

ciudad de valladolid

At only 40km/25 miles from Valladolid, this astonishing Mayan-Toltec archeological site, is a must-see. We'll arrive at opening time. So, besides having Chichén for your own (before the coast buses arrive), you'll also avoid the heat.

A multilingual guide (+- 1 1/2hrs) will explain you about the Itzáes, the ancient inhabitants of Chichén Itzá, their impressive 30m/98 feet high Castle of Kukulcán (and its solar calendar reflected in it), the largest Ball Court in Mesoamerica and the Temple of the Warriors.

The observatory

The Mayans are known for their astronomical knowledge. Not a telescope, but the windows in the Caracol point in the cardinal and subcardinal directions and are believed to enable the tracking of the movement of Venus, the Pleides, the sun and the moon and other celestial events.

Nunnery Palace

We'll finish with this palace complex that shows some beautiful examples of different architectural styles: Chenes and Puuc.

After the guided visit you'll have +- 1hr free time.

Buggy tour

Light and sound (optional)*

This evening performance brings you back in a mysterious Mayan time. You can see the simulation of the equinox: a magical play of light and shadows creates the appearance of a snake that gradually descends a staircase of the pyramid to complete the feathered serpent, Kukulcán.
