Full-Day Guided Tour of Chichen Itza Mayan Archaeological Site and Cenote Swimming from Cancun
A certified tour guide and door-to-door transportation make for an informative and hassle-free day trip from Cancun to Chichen Itza, one of the most popular sites in Mexico. Finish the tour with quick dip in a cenote and a pit stop in colonial Valladolid, with just enough time to snap a photo and walk around the main square. This tour includes a buffet lunch and all transportation and entrance fees.
What to Expect
Begin your tour with pickup from you Cancun hotel. Relax on the 2.5-hour drive to Chichen Itza on a climate-controlled coach and enjoy a buffet lunch upon arrival.

Then, begin your guided tour of the Mayan archaeological site, including a visit to the Kukulcan Pyramid. A guide brings the 1,500-year-old city to life with retellings of legends and history. Spend an hour of free time exploring the site on your own after the tour.

After exploring Chichen Itza, continue to a cenote for a 45-minute swim in one of the region’s famous natural swimming holes, created from collapsing limestone. Complete the day with a quick stop in the colonial town of Valladolid for a walk around the central square before returning to your Cancun hotel.
