Chichen Itza by Airplane

Book This Shore Excursion
Starting from $499 USD / Adult
Explore the spectacular archaeological treasure trove of Chichén Itzá during an unforgettable, half-day excursion to this UNESCO World Heritage Site via airplane. Depart the pier for the short transfer to Cozumel International Airport. Upon arrival, a comfort stop is made before meeting your pilot, receiving your safety instructions and boarding your airplane for the scenic, approximately 45-minute flight to Chichén Itzá. Your route flies over parts of the beautiful Caribbean Sea, and Mayan Riviera's semi-dry tropical jungle. An UNESCO World Heritage Site, the amazing archaeological treasure trove of Chichén Itzá is the best and most popular cultural tourist attraction in Mexico. The main pyramid of this ancient Mayan city, the Castle of Kukulkan, was declared one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. Your early-morning visit enables you to avoid the heat of the afternoon sun, and masses of tourists arriving on day trips by bus. Upon arrival at Chichén Itzá Airport and after a short drive to the site, you are greeted by your private guide and escorted on a picturesque, approximately 2 hour walking tour through this must-see ancient Mayan city. At the conclusion of your visit, transfer back to the airport, re-board your airplane and commence the approximately 45-minute return flight to Cozumel International Airport. Upon arrival, board a coach for the short drive back to the pier, where some free time is made available to browse for souvenirs at your leisure before embarking the ship.
