What To Expect
Begin your tour by absorbing the unique atmosphere of a world wonder in the Great Plaza, hailed as the social and spiritual heart of the city. Continue to the Pyramid of Kukulcan and gaze upward at the iconic structure; marvel at the pyramid’s perfect symmetry; learn how it was influenced by astronomical discoveries and listen to stories of serpentine shadows and architectural inspiration. Venture within to lay eyes on the exceptional pre-Colombian Chac Mool sculpture.
Next, venture to the enigmatic Great Ball Court to gain insight into the mystifying acoustics of the area. Stand 150 feet (46 meters) from someone on the opposite side of the ball court and hear their muted whispers loud and clear. This scientific marvel continues to perplex experts and archeologists around the world.
Continue to follow your guide as you head to an ancient collection of buildings constructed during the classical period; see the Temple of Warriors and the House of Mysterious Writings as your guide provides enrapturing explanations.
Explore the site independently until you depart for the luxurious Mayaland Hotel Resort. Feast upon a delicious buffet of local dishes and special recipes, watching local performers dance to traditional folkloric music. Luxuriate in the resort’s fabulous facilities before boarding the minivan for the return journey to Merida.
