Chichen Itza

Chichen Itza
Featuring the largest archeological site of the ancient Mayan civilization, Chichen Itza remains one of the most visited tourist destinations in Mexico.
Change things up with these side-trips from Chichen Itza: Ek Balam (in Ek Balam Village), Valladolid (Catedral de San Servasio, Zazil Tunich, & more) and Cenote Hubiku (in Temozon). There's still lots to do: take in the dramatic natural features at Cenote Ik kil, contemplate the long history of Chichen Itza, and delve into the distant past at Plataforma de Venus.

To see more things to do, photos, maps, and more tourist information, go to the Chichen Itza tour itinerary planner .

Yucatan's busy capital, Merida remains a mid-sized urban center offering an impressive list of cultural activities, eclectic nightlife, and a chance to see tropical examples of French and Italian architecture.
Venture out of the city with trips to Mangroves of Dzinitun (in Celestun), Cuzama (Iglesia de Eknakan & Cenotes Cuzama) and Cenotes de Homun (in Homun). There's still lots to do: admire the landmark architecture of Paseo de Montejo, contemplate the long history of Merida Cathedral, examine the collection at Gran Museo del Mundo Maya, and delve into the distant past at Mayapan Mayan Ruins.
