Coming to México Yucatán and dont visit Chichen Itza, its like going to Egypt and skip Giza pyramid, so important is Chichen Itza, the most iconic mayan archeological site (something difficult to say having another impressive mayan sites like Uxmal, Palenque, Tikal).
Understanding Chichen Itza is understanding how advance the mayan culture was. Chichen Itza was built having the stars alignment in mind, that help them to define the season to cultivate their land. Their buildings work as giant sundials, with special events happening in the equinox (spoiler alert: The edge of the pyramid cast a shadow with the shape of a the giant snake God).
Chichen Itza has hundred of secrets, some of them we know about and will amaze you, other ones, remains a mystery.

Cenote Ik Kil
After a hot day walking around Chichen Itza, nothing better that a jump into the fresh crystal water of Cenote Ik Kil, one of the most popular and impressive, you will go down a 40 – meter (121 -foot) stone stairway to this delightful blue swimming hole.

Izamal is called the City of Three Cultures because three historical periods merge together: the pyramids seen looking at the sky in backyard of local houses; the convent, whose charm stems from the silence of the majestic walls that forever marked the footprint of the Spanish influence; the streets, buildings, squares, houses and churches, all in a harmonious visual rhythm of one color: yellow.
Valladolid has the hallmark of “Pueblo Mágico”, a select group of Mexican villages whose cultural, historical, or natural treasures have been deemed, well, magical. Valladolid will transport you to a realm of colonial churches, surrealist gardens, far from the all-inclusive resorts and cheap fruity cocktails. This is the Mexico you’ve always wanted to discover.
Art meets History as you sit enthralled and the History Of The Maya is projected onto the main pyramid. An exceptional way to see Chichén Itzá in a new light most tourists don’t get a chance to see in tour groups. Just sit back and be entertained. Will be one of the highlights of your trip.
