Watch the wonders of Chichen Itza come alive in the incandescent light of day and night on a full-day all-inclusive tour. Discover the mysteries of Mayan history as you explore the archeological site with a knowledgeable guide, then prepare your senses for a spectacular light and sound show in which the towering structures of the park are illuminated with 3D projection technology. Your excursion will begin with a pick-up major hotels in Cancun and Riviera Maya. On-board, you will have drinks and snacks
Your first stop will be to Valladolid, a colonial town for a panoramic tour to take some pictures from the bus. Valladolid is one of the 'Pueblo Magico' and recognized by UNESCO. After this quick stop, go to the Mayan village 'Aldea Maya.' A Mayan priest will greet you and show you how Mayans still live, their houses, how they work and how they grow their food. Arrive at Chichen Itza Mayan ruins at approximately 14:00. Be taken on a 1.5-hour tour with a certified guide who will introduce you to the secrets of the Mayans. Your guide will explain the historical significance of all the most important sites before leaving you to enjoy the ruins on your own.
Continue your visit to Cenote, a beautiful place in the jungle with impressive crystal clear water and 45 minutes free time to swim, relax and take some pictures. Then, enjoy a delicious buffet from your authentic Yucatecan kitchen. At 18:45, go back to Chichen Itza Mayan site to watch the amazing show. You will witness a representation of the equinox, the southward movement of the Kukulcan feathered serpent by multicolored lights. Suddenly you will live some flashbacks to the ancient Mayan world through a narrative that goes perfectly with the special effects of light and sound. You will understand much better a history that has enriched Mexican culture since the beginning. Depart back to the hotels by around 21:00.

This was truly a disappointing tour. Except for transportation, buffet dinner appeared the food had been there for quite some time and light show, none of the inclusions indicated in the description happened. No snacks or beverage not even water were offered. No stop at an authentic Mayan village, no panoramic visit of Valladolid 'Pueblo Magico', no cenote x-cajum swim. The only stop we made was at some merchant's store. I was so impressed with my first visit last year to the Chichen Itza site that I invited a friend to accompany me this trip thinking that the light show would have been spectacular. Unfortunately, we did not arrive to the site until 1/2 hour before the site would close and was accordingly asked to empty the property for the light show. In other words, my friend did not even get the benefit of seeing the ruins!! Our bilingual guide could barely speak English and it was obvious he knew nothing historic to share with us during our 2-hour commute. He essentially dropped us off at the site and left us to wander around without the benefit of a tour guide which he claimed we would have once he got us inside. He did not give us instructions on what to expect once we arrived except to make sure we knew where and when to return to the shuttle. As I previously said, this was truly a disappointing tour and an absolute waste of money and a day of my time.
