Come and discover the most important archaeological site on the Yucatan Peninsula, Chichén Itzá! It was founded in the year 514 AD. Chichen Itza was once the capital of the ancient Mayan civilization and has recently been declared as one of the "seven Modern Wonders of the World". Immerse yourself in the ancient capital of the Mayan Empire and Mayan culture. Admire the majestic Observatory and the Sacred Cenote where sacrifices took place. Get to discover the Ball Court's perfect acoustics, with 168 meters in length and 70 meters wide, the largest Ball Game in Mesoamerica. Moreover, be astonished by the Pyramid of Kukulkán that combines theology and astronomy to produce a unique spectacle twice a year; the Spring Equinox and the Autumn Solstice. On these days, the shadows projected over the architectonic elements of the building resemble a serpent descending to the ground. This is an absolute must do while visiting Mexico!
"Chichen Itza" Reviewed December 5, 2012
We did a private tour to Chichen Itza with EcoColors last week and our tour guide Chris was the best. He provided a lot of great information on the mayan culture and was a lot of fun! I would recommend this tour to anyone who plans on going to Chichen Itza. I will definately be booking another tour with EcoColors when I return to Mexico next year and hopefully we will be able to request to have Chris again! See more..
