What you will visit:

Chichen Itza Ruins
This large, complex city built by the Mayan people was most active between the years 600 and 1250 A.D. Today, hundreds of structures, including massive stone pyramids, temples, and columned arcades, make up this ruined city, the core of which covers over 1.9 square miles-with additional structures ranging over an even wider area. Both a religious site and a busy urban center, Chichen Itza was a hub of trade in the region for centuries, but during the 1400s the site declined, though it is not known exactly why. Archaeologists have learned more of the original intents of the Mayan people over time, though there is still much to uncover!

What you will see along the way:
It's up and away over the wild blue yonder in your modern and well maintained Cessna airplane flying over the sparkling Caribbean Sea and the dense vegetation of the Yucatan jungle. You'll arrive just 10 minutes from the Mayan ruins of Chichen Itza. Your return flight continues to take in the dazzling views of the stunning Yucatan Peninsula.

Photo Opportunities:
You'll want to have your camera at the ready for this tour, brimming with photo opportunities. Key structures you won't want to miss include the impressive Temple of Kukulkan, or El Castillo, which demonstrates the advanced astronomical skills of the Mayan people and is designated as one of the New Seven Wonders of the World!
