Featuring the largest archeological site of the ancient Mayan civilization, Chichen Itza remains one of the most visited tourist destinations in Mexico.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Chichen Itza. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Santa Barbara Cenotes & Restaurant and Plataforma de Venus. Visiting Manglares de San Crisanto and Chinchorro Reef will get you outdoors. Change things up with these side-trips from Chichen Itza: Cenote noh mozon (in Tecoh), Cuzama (Cenotes Cuzama & Iglesia de Eknakan) and Izamal (Izamal Ruins, Centro Cultural y Artesanal Izamal, & more). There's lots more to do: delve into the distant past at Temple of the Bearded Man, Head underground at Cenote Sambula, contemplate the long history of Yaxuna, and see the interesting displays at Museo de Felipe Carrillo Puerto.
