Featuring the largest archeological site of the ancient Mayan civilization, Chichen Itza remains one of the most visited tourist destinations in Mexico.

Once overgrown with lush jungle, the intricate stone carvings depicting large snakes and jaguars and other artistic works, such as ancient pottery and idols, revealing the Maya and Toltec vision of the universe. Though many tourists spend the bulk of their Chichen Itza holiday roaming the renowned ruins of step pyramids and old living quarters, the surrounding area offers a range of other activities, from bird-watching and stargazing to hiking and swimming in cenotes surrounded by lush gardens.
