Chichen Itza – Ikkill – Valladolid

Chichen Itza is one of the most visited archaeological sites in Mexico. This pre-Columbian city built by the Maya was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1988. In 2007 a massive step pyramid, known as El Castillo or Temple of Kukulcan which dominates the ancient Mayan city of Chichen Itza was named one of the New Seven Wonders of the World.

Ikkil – one of the most beautiful cenotes in Yucatan. A natural freshwater pool of almost perfect circular shape of 60 meters. The height of the cenote is 27 meters and the water is 50 meters deep. The cenote is surrounded by a beautiful tropical garden which is home to a number of different species of birds. Spider monkeys also live in the area.

Until the beginning of the 20th century, Valladolid was the third largest and most important city of the Yucatán Peninsula, after Mérida and Campeche. The city is deeply Mayan. Many women wear the traditional Mayan huipil — white cotton blouses or dresses adorned with bright, flowered embroidery and sold in places like the Mercado de Artesanias located across the city’s beautiful, newly refurbished Parque Principal.
