Mysteries of The Maya

Mysteries of The Maya

May 01, 2014

Ever since John Lloyd Stephens published Incidents of Travel in Yucatan nearly 175 years ago, the ancient city of Chichen Itza has captured the imagination of travelers. Thought to be the most important cultural center of the Maya civilization, this UNESCO World Heritage Site is the storied setting for the oft-photographed pyramid El Castillo, Temple of the Warriors, the Great Ball Court and dozens of other structures. Seeing it all can be a bit overwhelming but our friends at Mayaland Tours make it all quite easy. Join fellow guests of Reef Coco Beach for the Chichen Itza Deluxe tour, a semi-private tour that includes access to temples by private entrance, luxury car transportation, a buffet lunch and the services of an expert bilingual guide. Follow in the footsteps of Stephens and the countless explorers who came after him on this in-depth look at one of Mexico's most visited archeological sites.
