Based on our experience and in an effort to protect the integrity of the excursion, we reserve the right to modify the order of the itinerary, if based on previous experiences we determine that if we do it in a different order it may be more satisfactory for our clients , for example.
There is the possibility that at Chichen Itza main entrance, there is a strike / manifestation that is blocking access to the site, exactly at the time we have scheduled our arrival at the archaeological site, we can make the decision to do the excursion in reverse, that is to do, first the cenote and then the meal, and finally do the visit to Chichen Itza when things have already been arranged at the entrance.
This is just an example of many that there is the possibility that might happen, which does not imply that the main goal of the excursion is not being fulfilled, only that the order would be different, but times in each place would be the same. The order of the factors does not change the result
It's also important to make it clear that this itinerary is for illustrative purposes only and in the same way we will have to make the corresponding adjustments, for example, heavy rain on the road, accidents, flat tires etc.
We'll try our best efforts to follow the schedule, but if due to unforeseen circumstances we can't make it, we would do the corresponding adjustments, do not worry you will be keep you informed of why these decisions are made and it does not mean that they are not fulfilling the main goals of the excursion.
We would like to speak with the truth from the beginning to avoid misunderstandings, please compare us with other websites and you'll realize that they are not even close to the level of detail that we use in our explanations in order to avoid surprises or misunderstandings.
Check out this itinerary and if for any reason something does not meet your group's expectations, don't worry we have other options such as Chichen Private, also if you want to go on your own to Chichen Itza we have a representative from our company that at the main entrance, you can buy a package that includes the express ticket + certified guide + food, as you can see, booking with us you are in very good hands.

ReviewsLeave a review
"Since I knew that I would make my trip to Merida, I knew that I wanted to go to Chichen Itza, since it is one of the 7 wonders of the world, but besides that for me it is a beautiful place! full of history, enigmatic and imposing, certainly a destination that you should not miss."
"We enjoyed our day trip from Merida to this ancient sight....quite impressive but it wouldn't have been as meaningful without all the information our guide Pali provided. The skill and precision that the ancient builders used is quite amazing. The visit to the cenote was disappointing and the included lunch barely edible. Highly recommend the Chichen Itza experience though."
"You should visit Merida, it’s a beautiful place with incredible places where you can spend time with your family, like visiting Chichén Itzá, one of the wonders of the world, beautiful architecture and a lot of cultural significance for the Maya’s civilization, or maybe the Archaeological Zone of Uxmal wich is similar to Chichén Itzá, a very important place for the mayan culture. For both places you have to bring very comfortable shoes and light way clothes because you will walk a lot."
"Took a tour from Merida to Chichen Itza. Our driver Cesar had great info on Mayan towns on the way there and was an expert on the route. A nice lunch was included that also included vegetarian options for us! Pali, our guide for the tour was very knowledgeable and provided lots of information not easily found in general literature. Awesome day!"
"Must see in Mexico, popular No. 1 ancient Maya city. There are a lot to visit and study in the area. I joined a small group tour from Merida, pros know the details and story, cons not enough time to visit all areas."
