Discover one of the most impressive archaeological sites of the Maya culture
Chichén Itzá is one of the most impressive archaeological sites of the Maya culture. It is a must on the agenda for visitors to Cancun and/or the Riviera Maya.
The ancient settlement of Chichén Itzá reached its peak during the IX century among exuberant vegetation, abundant sources of water and extremely irregular terrain. The Itzáes conquered and controlled the entire north of Yucatan Peninsula for more than 300 years.

Juan Miguel was an incredible tour guide - it was an amazing day! He was amazingly knowledgeable and able to give us clear information about the Mayan culture and everything that Chichen Itza entailed. He was incredibly courteous and gave us a day that we will not soon forget! I would recommend him to anyone who is interested in learning the intracacies and details about Chichen Itza and the Mayan culture in general that you may get with other tours.
