Discover the new modern wonders of the world.
Chichen Itza "at the mouth of the well of the Itza" was a large pre-Columbian city built by the Maya people of the Terminal Classic period. The archaeological site is located in the municipality of Tinum, in the Mexican state of Yucatán.
Chichen Itza was a major focal point in the Northern Maya Lowlands from the Late Classic (c. AD 600–900) through the Terminal Classic (c. AD 800–900) and into the early portion of the Postclassic period (c. AD 900–1200). The site exhibits a multitude of architectural styles, reminiscent of styles seen in central Mexico and of the Puuc and Chenes styles of the Northern Maya lowlands.
Avoid the crowds and travel in style to this new modern wonder of the world.
Devised for people who appreciate the highest standards, our charming English speaking driver and guide will collect you from your hotel in one of our luxury vehicles and take you on a private tour of the Chichen Itza.
