Chichen Itza is on the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico. Many travellers stay nearby in the city of Cancun, where you are able to visit these sites as part of an organised day trip. Full of luxury resorts and world-class beaches, this is an excellent way of crossing off these ‘must-see’ landmarks whilst taking a well-earned and sun-kissed rest. For more on Cancun, see below. However, to beat the crowds, you may want to arrive at Chichen Itza super early, or wait until later in the day. So, why not plan to spend a night in a nearby town such as Piste or Valladolid, giving you the chance to avoid the throngs? Speak to one of our team for advice.
When Europe was living in the Middle Ages, the Mayans were building these temples, and their construction demonstrate the vast knowledge this ancient civilisation had in astronomy, mathematics, acoustics and geometry. If you like a sense of wonder and awe with your holiday, you can’t go wrong with a visit to Chichen Itza.
