MAYAN RUINS OF CHICHEN ITZA AND VALLADOLID
Explore Mexico’s Monumental Chichen Itza Mayan Ruins
Chichen Itza, one of the New 7 Wonders of the World, served as the political, economic, and ceremonial center of the Mayan civilization. 4Worlds Expeditions has meticulously laid out an itinerary complete with personalized, attentive service that’s sure to make this day a highlight of your time in Mexico.
Your adventure will include a journey to the massive Kukulkan pyramid, “El Castillo” (The Castle), which is located roughly at the center of the site. Its construction was planned so that during each Vernal Equinox the dying sun would cast a shadow of a serpent (the Mayan God Kukulkan) writhing down the steps of the pyramid.
Following our time in Chichen Itza, we will have the opportunity to visit Valladolid, a charming colonial city, once a capital of Spanish power. Ornate architecture, market places, and a Franciscan convent can all be found in this remarkable destination.
Finally, if you so desire, you may also enjoy a swim in a pristine cenote with lush foliage that falls into the deep emerald waters below.
Walking shoes, biodegradable sun protection or sun block, sunglasses, camera, T-shirt, shorts, hat, bathing suit, beach towel, and money for souvenirs.
This expedition is not recommended for people with severe back problems, any severe physical or motor handicap, or serious heart problems.
