Chichen Itza, one of the 7 Wonders of the World
If you are wondering what is so special about Chichen Itza, let us tell you a little about this great city.
This Mayan city is considered a ceremonial center where its central pyramid is known as "The Castle" or temple of Kukulkan because it is dedicated to the god of the same name. Kukulkan is the central god of the Mayan culture and is equivalent to Quetzalcoatl in the Mexica culture.
What to see inside Chichen Itza?
Some people confuse Chichen Itza with the pyramid of Kukulkan, however, it is much more than that, that is why we are going to show you what to see in the archaeological zone and city of Chichen so that you don't miss anything.
At the beginning of the tour you will arrive at the Gran Plaza, a point considered the heart of the city, from here you will go to the other sites of Chichen Itza.
The pyramid "El Castillo" has 9 levels and 365 steps, just like the days of the year. If you can go on the autumn or spring equinox you can witness a play of light and shadow on the pyramid that simulates the descent of the feathered god down the stairs.
Other attractions of Chichen Itza are the surrounding cenotes, the great ball game, the Temple of the Warriors and the thousand columns, the Snail, among others.
What does Chichén Itzá mean?
The name of the city comes from the Mayan word meaning mouth of the well of the Itzaes, referring to the great cenote in the area; this was considered a sacred space because it was believed to be one of the entrances to the underworld.

This tour was amazing. I'm actually surprised they aren't talking about it everywhere. My guide Lorenzo was amazing, he was fun, and I learned a lot about the Mayan culture. I was given plenty of time to tour Chichen Itza, and the guide was very informative about the site. Lorenzo even offered us a 30-minute stop in Valladolid, a city where time seems to stand still, beautiful. I can't recommend this tour enough!
