This is a typical itinerary for this product
Stop At: Chichen Itza, Chichen Itza, Yucatan Peninsula
After boarding the transportation at your hotel and a technical stop of 10 minutes, we’ll begin the route towards our first destination, Chichén Itzá.
The main building is the Kukulkan Castle, known as The Pyramid. It is an icon of the astronomical, architectural, mathematical and engineering knowledge and, together with the platforms, they tell us about the past, with their many sculptures and representations of feathered serpents and Chaac masks, the majestic god of rain that lives in the sacred cenote.
Other places like the monumental Ball Game, The Astronomical Observatory, also known as The Snail and the area of The Church are worth admiring, thanks to their masks from the Mayan classic period. Come and explore with us this World Cultural Heritage Site!
Duration: 3 hours
Stop At: Cenote Ik kil, Chichen Itza, Yucatan Peninsula
The second stop of the day is The place of the wind, Cenote Ik Kil. This is one of the accidents caused by the impact of a meteorite against the Yucatan Peninsula and it was an essential part for the active life of Chichen Itzá. Nowadays, it’s open to the public for the delight of visitors from all around the world.
Swimming in the waters of Cenote Ik kil is sharing part of an ancient purification in a place that Mayans considered the perpetual dwelling of Chaac, god of the water and the rain. Cooling off in its waters is entering the eternity, being reborn and rejuvenating in an ancestral mysticism.
Also, it is an official site for world cliff diving due to its waters, which are 60 meters deep. We will have lunch at the restaurant of the cenote.
Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes
Stop At: Zona Arqueologica de Coba, Coba, Yucatan Peninsula
Afterwards, we’ll resume our tour towards Cobá. It is a 1-hour journey to arrive to a place which it’s considered one of the most important cities in the period of glory of the Mayan civilization. With about 50,000 inhabitants at its peak and a total area of 80 km2, there are many iconographic power monuments in its representations and internal and external zac beoobs (white paths) that connect buildings and cities among themselves. The longest path is runs 100 kilometers and reaches Yaxuna, another Mayan city.

The tour was informative, well paced at each site, and fun! If you can, request to have Carmen be your guide, do so. She is funny, caring, and nice. Also, I originally called over the phone to book the trip and that was a pretty easy process, just wanted to confirm they could pick us up at our particular resort. The only confusing thing about this process was figuring out the pick-up time from the resort because you won’t know your exact time the day before based on other individuals that are going with you on the tour.
An absolute must when you're in Cancun. I recommend this tour to anyone. Our tour guide Sergio was such an amazing person and he is so passionate about teaching everyone about the culture and about the history of the ruins. This tour is about 12 hours and you cover so many things and everything is beautiful. It is a long drive time to the places, but just sit back and relax. They will make you laugh as well. They provide plenty of drinks and snacks for the road. I recommend bringing swim geartrunks, snorkel, bathing suit, etc. to Centoe. You will want it for when you go swimming. It is so refreshing after a long day at Chichen Itza and a recharge for the next trip to Coba. If you are staying at the Iberostar Paraiso Del Mar like we did, they will pick you up from the hotel lobby. I recommend you call Viator and book the tour and verify with them if the tour company can pick you up from the lobby directly from the hotel you are staying at in Playa Del Carmen. They were able to pass that information directly to them at time of reservation and all I had to do was confirm the day before via phone call with the tour company.
I would recommend this excursion, it was fun and the guide Sergio was so friendly and knowledgeable. My family learned so much about the Mayas. The driver was friendly and drove safely. I would not miss out on this tour .
This tour is absolutely a must do when going to Mexico! Our tour guide Marcela was phenomenal at allowing us to do our own thing, but also extremely mindful of where each one of us was. Marcela was super fun, informative, and pretty much knew the answer to all questions! I went with my boyfriend for our anniversary, and couldnt have chosen a better excursion, mostly thanks to our lovely tour guide!
This was a fabulous day and the highlight of everyone’s trip. I was worried it would be too long of an excursion for a teenager with spotty cell service and a 9 yr old but I think everyone in the family thought this was our most outstanding adventure. The timing and our guide Carmen made the day. It was a lot of time in transit, but our guide had such interesting info the car rides felt like nothing. Our time at Chichen Itza was simply amazing. We nearly had the place to ourselves and had time to wander and snap photos with literally no other people in them if you just waited for a others to pass. We didn’t realize how the size of the crowd we were beating until we moved on to the next site and they were pouring into the complex. Lunch was lovely and had good variety. The boys absolutely loved swimming in Cenote and was undoubtedly the highlight of their trip. We rested in van during transport to Coba and after a brief history, were set free to climb to the top. It wasn’t that hard, just watch your step and be very very careful on the way down. My 9 yr old and I both came down on our butts. It was by far the best tour we have ever been on and we would definitely use again!
This was a great itinerary featuring two amazing ruins and a cool cenote and a solid buffet lunch. Our guide was incredibly friendly and did an excellent job of leading the tour and explaining the ruins. The only real negative is the drive time, but that was known ahead of time.
Our Driver Roberto and our guide Sergio was fantastic. The quality of interpretation and education about the culture and archeology was as in depth as you wanted. The attention to customer safety and comfort was excellent. A small group was the way to go. Very personalized experience. Highly recommend this guiding service.
The trip that I had with Viator was very satisfying for me. The tour guide, Carmen was amazing and she give us so much information about everything that we visited. I booked the tour by searching on Google and I recommend it to everyone.
Thank you very much for everything!
Small group of 6 which was great - Personal attention. Our Guide Francisco was passionate about his job and the Mayan Culture. We had a great time and would recommend this tour to anyone wanting to go to all 3 activities.
Great tour 0f Chichen Itza and Coba! Would skip the Cenote, too many people swimming in one pool, and not a true cenote, more of a very large sink hole, we didn't bother with the swimming, we stayed and had lunch.
Our tour guide Carmen was fantastic. Absolutely knowledgeable and friendly, she answered our questions in English, and Spanish and English again if we missed it! An absolutely enjoyable day complete with recommendations for shopping for silver, lessons in local artistry and the meanings of the symbols that show up through out Mexico. Too much knowledge to retain in one day, but a very very awesome experience. Thanks so much!!
This trip was awesome. Our tour guide Pablo was very good, best guide ever! And our driver Orlando was also very good. Small groups, good schelude.
We took this tour yesterday and I cannot say enough about it!!! We, my husband, son, daughter-in-law and I, were picked up at our resort without issue and greeted by our tour guide Pablo and our driver Cesar at 0715. There were only 6 people on this tour and my family were 4 of them. Pablo was an outstanding tour guide and host. His knowledge of the Mayan history, customs and geography was outstanding. His education is in archeology so he knew very well what he was talking about and readily answered any questions we had along the way. Our driver Cesar was always waiting patiently with a wonderful smile. He always had the van ready to go and offered ice cold water at every opportunity. We felt very special with only 6 people in our tour as Pablo customized it just for us. We saw many other tour groups of 40 to 50 people and they did not look like they were having much fun.
This tour takes you to Chichen Itza, the biggest cenote Ikkil and then Coba. There is enough time to have the tour and explore the area, although another half an hour at Chichen Itza would have been nice. Lunch was provided at the cenote and was good with lots of choice and plenty to go around. You did have to buy your drinks though. Pablo climbed Coba so once we were on top of the pyramid he gave us more info and pointed out interesting land marks that no other tour company provided.
I had mentioned to Pablo there was a very large Mexican pottery store we passed on the way and wondered if tours every stopped there. Well, ours did because I mentioned it!
Additionally, My son forgot his phone in the van after the tour. After some panicked moments we called Pablo and he made a special arrangement to drop it off to us today. My son offered him a substantial monetary thank you which he refused because he said they were coming this way already. That is unheard of in Mexico and just shows what an amazing person he is.
Some tips for this trip are to eat before you get picked up if possible because lunch is a long time away. Pablo and Cesar did provide bananas, cookies and water/juice but we were very hungry by the time lunch came. Bring your swim suit and dry clothes so you are not uncomfortable for the rest of the day. Wear running shoes or good sandals as there is quite a bit of walking, climbing and bicycling which were all awesome.
I and my family highly recommend this trip for many reasons but the most important was because Pablo and Cesar were superb hosts. I will definitely request them for our next Mexican excursion.
This is a great tour to be able to see two of the major ruins in one day, and throw in swimming in a cenote too. The tour company did a great job getting us 7 people to Chichen Itza early before the crowds. The first time I visited, I had a longer tour which was beneficial, and I am sure if this was the only ruins we would see during the day, the tour would have been longer too. Since we left Chichen Itza early, that means we got to Ik Kil before the crowds and the buses arrived. That was nice being able to enjoy the cenote without many people and then a nice lunch after. Coba was interesting. Bring pesos for a bicycle or tricycle ride as that is an extra cost and you do not want to walk. I got to climb the tallest ruin at Coba, and then the others that also climbed, returned quickly to the bottom since a rain cloud was heading our way. And then it poured! Thankfully the tricycle had an umbrella, but we kind of missed out on being able to walk around a couple other ruins. We had the opportunity, but nobody wanted to leave the semi-comfort of the umbrella and we could see them from the road.
Great tour company and I can recommend them.
Fantastic trip and guide.
Pablo was exceptional, thank you for sharing your history and stories, the driver Orlando was also outstanding.
This is a must do, we booked a small group tour it was great.
Would 100 recommend you book before you go
Our tour guide, Carmen, was fantastic! Learned so much about the Mayan civilization. I highly recommend this tour.
Our tour guide was lovely. He was knowledgeable in the history of the Mayan ruins and gave us a lot of information. It was a little overcast, thankfully, as the tour got underway and it still was super hot! We then got to swim in Ik Kil cenote, which was a beautiful cenote and quite refreshing! I'd recommend getting a bike to go to the Coba ruins as the walk would be hectic in the heat! It was fun and climbing up those stairs was scary but the view from the top was amazing!
We loved this tour, our guide Chris had a great knowledge and because the group was small, we had a chance to ask the questions and learned a lot about Mayan history. Plenty of time at Ik Kil which was little bit crowded as we got there at lunch time. Lunch at Ik Kil site was lovely too. In Coba we walked to main pyramid which took around 10-15 minutes but it was a pleasant walk on a shaded path and we had a chance to learn more about this place form our guide Chris. Also cannot fault Orlando's driving - very safe!
The tour is excellent, the guide very passionate and knowledgeable. All day long everything was made to make us have a wonderful time, and what a time we had !!! Chichen Itza is amazing. Ik Kil was one of the most beautiful Cenotes I have ever seen. But CAREFUL don't go through Viator !!!! They're crooks who are ready to promise anything to have their commission but don't take any responsability. Instead, contact directly the local company : yalku.tours. You won't regret it !!!!!
