On the Xichén Clásico Tour, a certified guide will take you to the main pre-Hispanic temples and buildings at Chichén Itzá, Mexico. This archaeological site is a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, and there you will see places such as the Temple of the Warriors and the Thousand Columns, the Osario, and the magnificent Ballgame Court.

Remember to take a picture at the foot of the Pyramid of Kukulcan, where twice a year during the equinox, the Feathered Snake descends. Also, there will be a stop at the Xcajum Cenote to swim in its refreshing waters.
On this tour, you can visit the more than 50 attractions at Xcaret Park in one whole day. Swim along the three underground rivers, visit the astonishing Aviary, the huge Butterfly Pavilion, or the Coral Reef Aquarium.
