Enjoy a relaxed morning to explore Chichén Itzá on your own, arriving early enough to access the site before the crowds arrive and before it gets too hot out. With a comfortable and convenient shuttle from Cancun, relax during the ride and focus on enjoying this fascinating ancient Maya city.

Grab a seat on the shuttle in the early morning, heading out of Cancun before the sun creeps up and making your way inland through dense jungle to the archaeological site of Chichén Itzá . On the way, your driver provides some commentary about the site, offering information about its discovery, the archaeological project that uncovered its most breathtaking ruins, and the lifestyles of the mysterious Maya who once called it home.

Arrive and purchase your tickets, accessing the site before the big tour buses and crowds arrive. You can opt to hire a guide to lead you through the site once you’re there, or just roam the sprawling grounds on your own. Study the temples and columns of this pre-Columbian city, a center of worship and pilgrimage until the arrival of the Spaniards that is still considered to be sacred by the Maya people of the Yucatán.

Marvel at impressive structure like El Castillo and the massive ancient Mesoamerican ball game court, and trek out to gaze into the emerald waters of the Cenote Sagrada, believed to be a portal to the world of the gods. Once you’ve seen it all, hop back in the shuttle for the comfortable return ride.
