Create an itinerary including Chichen Itza
Over a thousand years old yet remarkably well-preserved, the World Heritage-listed Mayan architecture of Chichen Itza draws huge numbers of tourists every year. Once one of the largest Maya cities, the ruins consist of numerous stone buildings, originally linked by a well-planned network of paved streets. The biggest crowds gather at the autumnal and vernal equinoxes, when the sun's rays produce an illusion of a snake climbing up the stairs of the imposing central pyramid. A nightly light-and-sound show recreates the spectacle for those visiting at other times. Use our Chichen Itza day trip planning tool to arrange your visit to Chichen Itza and other attractions in Chichen Itza.
