Vue d'ensemble

Cette visite complète combine deux des plus importants sites archéologiques de la péninsule du Yucatán : Chichen Itza et Coba. Laissez un guide vous accompagner dans les ruines et vous expliquer leur importance. Cette excursion d'une journée au départ de Playa del Carmen inclut le petit déjeuner, des boissons, un déjeuner-buffet ainsi qu'une baignade dans le cénote Ik Kil.
Commencez votre visite en petit groupe à Chichen Itza et Coba, respectivement, avec transfert depuis votre hôtel de Playa del Carmen. Montez dans un minibus climatisé pour le trajet vers l'un des sites archéologiques les plus réputés de la péninsule du Yucatán. Le petit-déjeuner, un déjeuner buffet et les boissons sont fournis au cours de la journée.

À votre arrivée, promenez-vous avec votre guide au cours d'une visite de 2 heures et admirez les impressionnantes structures construites pendant l'Empire Maya. Regardez la pyramide de Kukulkan, appelée El Castillo (le château), ainsi qu’El Caracol, également appelé l'Observatoire. Découvrez la place aux mille colonnes, le temple de Vénus, le Temple du Jaguar, et le plus grand court de jeu de balle de la Mésoamérique.

Continuez votre route pour une baignade dans le cénote Ik Kil, situé à une courte distance en voiture. Le cénote a une profondeur de 196 pieds (60 mètres) et sa hauteur depuis la surface du gouffre est de 82 pieds (25 mètres). Vous en apprendrez plus sur ce lieu sacré, autrefois considéré comme la route vers le monde souterrain par le peuple Maya.

Cobá est votre dernière étape, avec une visite de ruines préservées et reconstruites. Passez devant deux courts de jeux de balle et découvrez les sacbé, ou routes blanches, qui reliaient autrefois les villes Mayas. À son apogée, Cobá avait une population d'environ 50 000 habitants et une zone de 80 miles carrés (129 km²). Si vous le souhaitez, gravissez les 120 marches de la pyramide Nohoch Mul et vous serez récompensé par une vue imprenable sur la jungle dense depuis le sommet de la pyramide.

Votre visite se terminera par le trajet du retour vers votre hôtel de Playa del Carmen.

My friends and I took the small group tour to Chichen-Itza, Cenote, and Coba Ruins on January 2, 2017. Overall the trip was absolutely wonderful and well worth our time.

The tour is an all day affair, so be prepared for a long day with comfortable shoes. We were picked up from our hotel at 5:45am and I was very impressed that they were exactly on time. As it turned out, we were the only ones to book the tour that day, so we got a private tour for the 4 of us. Once in the van, Joel our tour guide introduced himself and we were giving snacks and drinks.

Once we arrived in Chichen-Itza, we were given a 2 hour guided tour through the archaeological site with an hour to shop if we needed afterword. Since no one in our group particularly cared for shopping Joel offered to take us around less visited sites and explain them in detail which was truly wonderful. We got there when the park opened so we didn't have to wait and it was very peaceful which made the experience far better. As we were leaving, the crowds were really starting to pour in, and the line of buses was miles long. Even if you don't use this tour, I recommend using a tour that gets to Chichen early to have the best experience.

Next we took a 5-10min ride to the Ik KIl Cenote. It's very touristy and there were a lot of people there by the time we rolled in. That said, the cenote itself is pretty amazing. We dove off the side and swam for about 10 min then went up and had buffet lunch that was quite good.

Coba was a fascinating site. Coba has the tallest pyramid in the Yucatan, and once to get to the top you certainly believe it. The stairs are narrow and precarious, but that all adds to the feeling of accomplishment once you get to the top or back down to the bottom. The site is massive and in the middle of the jungle. There is the option to rent a bike or a tricycle that will take you around the site, but we decided to walk. Honestly, I think walking was the better choice because we were able to take our time and enjoy each different site. Watching the bikers, they seemed very rushed. Our guide was also able to take us places that the bikes couldn't go.

I believe We returned to our hotel sometime before 7pm. Some people may be put off by the long bus rides between sites 2hr 15min to Chichen, 1hr 30min to Coba, 1hr 30min back to Playa del Carmen, but I think they were perfect because they allowed for some sleep in between each site. This way, all of us were rested and ready to go each time got off the bus.

I was most impressed with our guide, Joel, who was so articulate and knowledgeable, that I thought we were listening to an Archaeological Professor from some university. He went above and beyond what was required to give us a wonderful trip.

My only critique of the tour is that I wanted more time in Chichen. The site was far larger than I had imagined, and I didn't get to see near as much as I had wanted. That being said, there are only so many hours in the day and the tour was wonderfully done.
