Chichen Itza Tours
A Chichen Itza Tour is by far the easiest and most convenient way to visit this World famous archeological site.
Private Chichen Itza tours are also available and these may work out more suitable if you have a larger group or prefer the personal touch. With a private tour you can also visit the additional sites of the Ik Kil cenote and/or Ek Balam.
I really wouldn't recommend you travel there via hire car. The journey is long (2 and a half hours) the roads are for the most part deserted, gas stations are infrequent and there are also tolls to negotiate. It is also very very easy to get lost coming back and end up taking the old road which twists and turns through a hundred small villages in pitch blackness, craters in the road and foot high speed bumps that are unmarked and seemingly spring up from nowhere, I know I survived it!
Choose from 4 different options for your Chichen Itza Tour with prices from $55 for adults and $38 for kids.
All tours include lunch at Hacienda Chichen Itza by Mayaland with access to pool, towels and lounge chairs, air conditioned transport, professional English speaking guide, a stop at the refreshing Ik Kil cenote for a swim and all entrance fees, road tolls and taxes.
Plus option adds breakfast snack on bus and drinks at lunch with beer for the return journey. Premier option adds breakfast and open bar at lunch and return journey and max group size less than 30.
