What you can expect
Get an up-close look at the charms and treasures of the Yucatán on this all-inclusive day of exploration. You can learn about the vast archeological site of Chichén Itzá, cool off with a dip in a serene cenote, and snap colorful photos in colonial Valladolid, complete with a tasty buffet lunch and a spacious coach ride between each stop.
You start the day with (optional) pickup from your hotel and a visit to Cenote Hubiku, a cavernous freshwater pool in a light-filled limestone cave, and dive in for a surreal swim. If the water’s not for you, you head over to Casa Don Tadeo and try out their wide variety of homemade Tequila—complete with a look at how it’s made.
Next, you can tuck into a buffet lunch of classic Maya dishes like slow-cooked, marinated pork before you hop back on the bus for the last leg of the drive to Chichén Itzá. This UNESCO World Heritage Site features excavated ruins and well-preserved temples, including the iconic Pyramid of Kukulcan and the Great Ball Court, some of the grandest and best-preserved structures of their kind.
Once you've had a look at the nearby Sacred Cenote, climb back into the comfort of the bus. Your final stop is in the quiet city of Valladolid, where the colonial-era pastel walls of shops and restaurants offer a colorful backdrop for photos before the return trip that brings your tour to a close.
