Private Chichen Itza Tour by Air

Visit the incredible Mayan ruins.

From $539.80

This is a Pandemic-Buster tour with outdoor stops and vehicles/aircraft just for you, so it limits interaction with other tourists you don't know.

Visit the incredible Mayan ruins at Chichen Itza, one of the Seven New Wonders of the World.

Home to the famous El Castillo pyramid, Chichen Itza is a must-see attraction in the Mexican Caribbean and you will be in awe of the majestic structures and surrounding jungle.

Built between 1,000 and 1,200 AD, it is one of Mexico's largest Mayan sites and you can get there from Cozumel on a 45 minute scenic flight.

Save hours of travel time by flying, and even cruise passengers here for one day have time to visit and get back to their ship in plenty of time before its departure.

You'll be picked up at your cruise terminal or accommodation and transferred to Cozumel airport to begin your truly amazing excursion.

Enjoy a scenic flight over the Yucatan Peninsula in a small aircraft in both directions, flying low enough to enjoy spectacular views. A close flyover of the ruins can't always be guaranteed as it depends on conditions and air traffic control on the day, but the pilot will always try to get you as good an aerial view as possible before landing at Chichen Itza's airport, where you will be transferred to the ruins.

Your professional, English-speaking archeological guide will be waiting to take you on a private guided tour around the incredible Mayan ruins.

Listed as an official UNSCO World Heritage site, this site was one of the greatest Mayan centres of the Yucatan peninsula. Over almost 1,000 years, different peoples left their mark on the city with incredible stone monuments and artistic works.

The mix of construction techniques and colorful history make Chichen Itza one of the most important archeological sites in all of Latin America.

As well as the iconic pyramid, many sacred buildings have survived, such as the Warriors’ Temple and the circular observatory known as El Caracol.

After about 2 hours at the ruins, if you wish, you can also add an optional stop at a cenote (natural sinkhole pool) for Mexican buffet lunch, swim and relax after the ruins for an additional $25 per person (allow an extra hour in this case, making the total tour time approximately 7 hours in total).

Finally, you'll be transferred back to Chichen Itza airport where your plane will be waiting for you for the return flight to Cozumel.

At the end of the tour you'll be transferred back to your accommodation or cruise terminal in Cozumel.
