This extraordinary aerial tour takes you into the skies above the Mayan Ruins of Chichen Itza, one of the new Seven Wonders of the World. First aboard a private Cessna and later on foot, your 4Worlds Expeditions Certified Guide will share the history of the ruins and provide insight into ancient Mayan culture.
As you soar over the site, you’ll enjoy 360-degree views of structures like the Temple of Kukulkan-also known as “El Castillo.” This magnificent architectural marvel is living proof of the Mayans’ expertise in mathematics and astronomy, designed to cast a shadow of a serpent (Mayan God Kukulkan) slithering down the steps of the pyramid during every equinox.
There is no better or more breathtaking way to understand this unique civilization and feel the lasting impact of its achievements. If you prefer to extend your tour, this package also includes an optional visit to a modern-day Mayan community. As you walk the same path of the area’s ancient inhabitants, your 4Worlds Expeditions guide will show you how the Mayan people live today and share their customs and traditions,
Walking shoes, biodegradable sun protection or sun block, sun glasses, camera, T-shirt, shorts, hat, bathing suit, beach towel, and money for souvenirs.
