Chichen Itza (in the mouth of the Itza spring)

Chichen Itza is located about 400 km west of Cancun and is probably the most famous Mayan ruin city in the Yucatan. Chichen Itza, founded around 400 A.D, had its heyday from 800 to 1200 AD and was the center of political, religious, and military power in the Yucatan. In its architecture is a gradual change of the architectural style, starting with the one in the Puuc style in Uxmal ruins and other cities in Yucatan and reached its peak with the Maya - Toltec style, recognizable by their similarity to the style in Tula, the ancient capital of the Toltecs, Oaxaca and other Toltec ruins cities along the Gulf Coast. Chichen Itza was a very large Mayan city with many inhabitants, who lived scattered around the religious zone that we now know as the ruins. Despite the large population, there was plenty of drinking water by many leading water caves and cenotes in the region. On a tour of the city, you will learn about the history of the Maya and Chichen Itza.

gran-cenoteGran Cenote (Sak Aktun = white cave)
Grand Cenote is part of the Sak Aktun ("white cave" in Mayan) system of underground rivers whose current flows from deep inside the Yucatan peninsula. Grand Cenote is a large beautiful garden cenote with white sand beach-type areas along with easily accessible caves for snorkeling and diving. With a circumference area of 202 meters, it is very popular for first-time cenote swimmers. With a snorkel mask, you can see large stalactites up close, non-swimmers can wade to the other side of the cave where they can walk around a natural open hole to the jungle above. Snorkelers can swim around the edges of the cenote, viewing depths up to 10 meters, views include columns of stalactites and stalagmites of all shapes and sizes which resemble cities of skyscrapers. Little green turtles paddle around near the garden´s edge.

 

Or alternatively, instead of the cenote, a visit to a Mayan family deep in the jungle!!!

 

MayafamilieMaya Family

Visit the family in the house, learn how they make their tortillas and how they live, and go about their life in the jungle. After lunch, you'll drive to a Mayan village deep in the jungle to visit a Mayan family at their home. They will show you how they live in the jungle, their medicinal garden, their beehives. You can make tortillas with them and eat the tortilla you just made with some scrambled eggs and chaya (Maya spinach). The family also produces honey with the stingless Maya bee Melipona, which produces honey with high medicinal value.The family also sells handicrafts that they make themselves, such as blouses and the typical Mayan dresses for children with beautiful Mayan embroidery. Also jewelry, some made with seeds from fruits that the spider monkeys throw down after eating the fruits from the tree.
