Private Tour to Chichen Itza

This sacred site was one of the greatest Mayan centers of the Yucatán peninsula, it is located 2.5 hours west of Cancun. Throughout its nearly 1,000-year history, different peoples have left their mark on the city. The Maya, Toltec and Aztec vision of the world and the universe is revealed in their stone monuments and artistic works. The fusion of Mayan construction techniques with new elements from central Mexico make Chichen-Itza one of the most important examples of the Mayan-Toltec civilization in Yucatán. Several buildings have survived, such as the Warriors' Temple, El Castillo and the circular observatory known as El Caracol.

The Chichen Itza's Mayan city represents the most intact and impressive of the Ruins of the Mayan civilization that the modern world preserves. It has the record best restored of the way of living spiritual, domesticate, and of the agriculture of the Mayan ancestors. Its culture has influenced many areas of architecture, art, and astronomy of our modern world.

Around the year 550 A. D. the Mayans settled themselves in Chichen Itza (Mayan word that means " the mouth of the well"). Chichen Itza is located in a sylvan area on limestone across which, the rainwater slips past and is supported between the rocks of the subsoil. These water channels are known like "cenotes". The cenotes, were the oasis of the community, plenty of rainwater provided the necessary things to live. Chichen Itza as other Mayan centers, was firstly a ceremonial and spiritual site instead of a commercial area.

Chichen Itza is one of the new 7 wonders of the modern world along with the the China's Great Wall, Christ Redeemer Statue, Machu Picchu, the Taj Mahal, the Roman Colloseum and the stone city of Petra. To see the full list, click here.
