The ancient ruins of Chichen Itza are one of Mexico's must-visits. This exclusive experience, lets you see the site before the crowds arrive and tour the complex with an expert guide. Then, you'll delve into the depths of the Mayan underworld at Zazil Tunich cenote and visit a traditional Maya village for lunch. This is one of our private TUI Collection excursions, which give you a local flavour of the destination while offering you the freedom and flexibility to enjoy the day your way.
It's an early start, but taking our private tour means you'll be the first to arrive at the UNESCO World Heritage site – the perfect time to snap a few selfies. And having beat the crowds, the surrounding stillness adds even more mystery to Mayan monuments like the mighty Kukulkan Pyramid, the Temple of the Jaguars and the macabre Tzompantli where the heads of sacrificial victims were once displayed.
Delve into the depths of Zazil Tunich cenote and you'll unearth the secrets of Xibalba – the Maya god of the underworld. You'll find stunning stalagmite formations and clear waters in which you can cool off with a swim. Then after lunch in a typical Maya village, you'll see the locals show off their skills in hand-weaving hammocks – an age-old craft.
