WORLD WONDER DISCOVERY
World Wonder Discovery is a whole day tour that offers a visit to the ancient city of Chichen Itza, catalogued as one the Wonders of the World. This tour also takes you to the colonial city of Valladolid to delve into the history and culture of the Yucatan Peninsula.
During the road trip our guide will provide you with meaningful information about the history, culture and traditions of the Pre-Hispanic Mayan, as well as about the environmental conditions in the north of Yucatan.
Chichen Itza is one of the bigger cities from the Mayan Pre-Hispanic period, one of the most visited archaeological sites in the whole wide world.
Some of the buildings in the site have been fully restored so that we can contemplate them in their glorious magnificence: take the famous Castle, for instance. The site is enormous, but our guide will lead us to the more emblematic spots and will explain, with full detail, about the meaning of the structures and the architectural spaces, as well as about Mayan symbology and writing.
Our trek to the Mayan past wouldn’t be complete if we don’t stop in one of the most astonishing cenotes in the area. Diving in it is quite refreshing, but there’s more to it than that; after our archaeological walk, the experience of bathing in its waters makes us feel like we just went into the past to a time in which the water of all these cenotes gave life to numerous cities in a region in which there are no lakes or rivers that flow on the surface.
Our tour ends with a visit to the city of Valladolid, a colonial place that keeps most of its centennial buildings. In there, we’ll find out about the emergence of Spanish cities during the colonial period, and we’ll get to enjoy the local gastronomy in the best restaurant in town.BACK TO BLOG INDEX
