A JOURNEY THROUGH TIME TO ANCIENT & COLONIAL MEXICO
World Wonder Discovery
Chichen Itza - Valladolid - Cenote
Selected as one of the New Wonders of the World, Chichen Itza is one of the most spectacular archaeological sites in the Americas and a ¨must see¨ for those interested in history and culture. This is one of the most researched and re-constructed of all of Mexico's ancient cities, allowing us unrivaled insight into the secrets of this fascinating civilization and an exemplary vision of what the city once looked like..
Renowned structures such as the Pyramid of Kukulkan & the Great Ball Court provide a fascinating testimony to the great achievements of the Mayan civilization. An expert guide will lead you through the centuries of history and development, as well as help you understand the amazing architecture, art and engineering integrated into the city.
After Chichen, a local community-run cenote is the perfect spot to get away from the crowds and cool down in the refreshing blue waters. This is another wonderful experience, with the cenote right at the center of life in this village. The deep sink hole is full of birds' nests and tree roots & is surrounded by mysticism and exhuberant nature.
Valladolid is a city where past and present come together to delight us with the sights of colored colonial architecture and tastes of an incredibly rich gastronomy. We lunch in the courtyard of a restored colonial mansion, an experience in itself, and have time to wander the square and nearby streets of the center afterwards. Great photo opportunities, craft shopping and a taste of slow-paced Mexican life.
