Tour Xichén

Cancun, Quintana Roo, Mexico

General information

Description

Xichen is an experience that takes you closer to the ancient Mayan civilization, where you will walk the paths of Chichen Itza, learn about its history and marvel at one of the Seven Modern Wonders, the pyramid of Kukulkan.

You will begin your tour in comfortable air-conditioned transportation that will take you directly to Chichen Itza, where you will listen to your guide narrate the history of these ancient buildings and their importance during the height of this civilization. You will also observe the imposing ball game, the largest in Mesoamerica. Hear about their legacy and marvel at what you will learn. 

Once your visit is over, you will head to the Xcajum cenote, where you can swim in its refreshing waters after your hike. Enjoy the breathtaking view from the bottom of this body of water surrounded by green vegetation. Don't forget to enjoy a delicious buffet of traditional meals before heading back home, but not before enjoying a panoramic tour through the colonial town of Valladolid. 

Xichén is part of a group committed to the environment that carries out actions for the sustainability of its tourism activities by carrying out awareness programs, programs for the protection of fauna and flora, and creates community centers, among other actions. One of their latest has been to reduce the use of single-use plastics in all their establishments. It is due to this and more that they have the EarthCheck Gold certification which, through scientific assessment, guarantees that the service provider manages and plans the resources used, innovates or maintains social responsibility and safeguards water.
