It’s early morning and the alarm warns you, with its shuddering sound, that the time to get up has arrived. The sun still doesn’t illuminate the sky and the bed seems to have become a magnet for your body. However, you are motivated by the fact of undertaking a trip to one of the most important archaeological sites. You think about its ancient ruins, the beauty of the jungle and the interesting history that the place shelters. Suddenly, having risen early doesn’t seem so bad. It seems exciting to know that you’ll visit a place as wonderful as Chichen Itza.

Any excursion to an archaeological zone is considered a wonderful adventure. Enter the ancient Mayan world and discover important facts to live one of the best experiences imaginable. One of the best ideas to fully enjoy such an amazing site is to do it smartly. The Xichén Tour will be your ideal option. Not only you will visit the site, but you will discover the best-kept secrets of the ancient Mayan civilization. Even though the tour is designed for you to enjoy without worry, it’s good to have some things in mind. Here are 5 important things to remember during your trip to Chichen Itza:

 

1.- Take the right equipment

An excursion in the jungle is synonymous to long walks, rocky floors and a face-to-face confrontation with the heat. Don’t be scared by the “inconveniences” that Mother Nature can put in your way. Think rather that it’s the price we must pay to witness such stunning beauty. In addition, any discomfort can be easily resolved by wearing the right equipment.

Extras:

During the Xichén Tour, you will also be visiting the famous Ik’Kil cenote. This beautiful and huge well of crystal clear water is the perfect stop to refresh your day and grab a bite. It’s necessary that you pack your favorite bathing suit to enjoy the cenote. However, the descent of 90 steps to get to it will be easier using water shoes. They may not be the latest fashion trend, but they’ll help you a lot.

2.- Always listen to your guide

It doesn’t matter how much you read on the Internet or in some printed brochure beforehand. Of course, they are a great compliment, but the most enriching thing to do is to listen to your guide. These people prepare themselves, with great care, to offer you a quality experience. They are the contemporary experts of an ancient world that comes to light from every corner of Chichen Itza. Listen to them tell you the most enigmatic stories about a powerful pre-Hispanic civilization. In addition, they are the ones who ensure your safety at all times, so follow their advice and recommendations. Their years of experience speak for themselves. Trust your guide and your visit to Chichen Itza will be much more pleasant.

4.- Take a souvenir with you

It will seem an obvious recommendation, however, it is important to remember it. The souvenirs serve as a small reminder that sends you back to that special experience. Mexico is a country where souvenirs are not just keychains or magnets for the fridge. In this beautiful country, you can take home an original craft as a souvenir. The Xichén Tour has a special stop where you’ll find souvenirs of all sizes, shapes, and colors. Find the one that best goes with you, and takes home a piece of Mexico.
