On this full-day fun accessible tour, you will get to discover Mayan history and culture and explore some of the beautiful Mexican landscape.

The tour will begin with a pick-up service from your accommodation in an accessible vehicle with a ramp, and staff will be available to assist you to transfer if necessary. You will then drive for a little under 3 hours to the Chichen Itza archaeological site. Upon arrival, you will meet your guide who will be able to tell you about the Mayan people and the discoveries made at the site, which is known as one of the ‘New Seven Wonders of the World’ and was the ancient capital of the Mayan empire. You will then have some time to admire the numerous Mayan ruins and 24-metre high Kukulkan pyramid at your own pace. As the ground of the site can be uneven and rocky, a GRIT wheelchair can be provided if necessary to give you greater freedom to explore the site. Climbing the pyramid is strictly forbidden in order to preserve the delicate stonework, but you can still get a great view of the imposing building from the ground level.

You will then drive to the city of Valladolid, a colonial town with charming buildings and a historic church. You will have some time to get to see the town before settling down to lunch in a local restaurant. Here, you will have a choice of regional dishes, as well as a generous salad bar. The restaurant also has accessible bathroom facilities.

After lunch, you will head to a nearby cenote, or underground reservoir, many of which are scattered throughout the countryside. The cenote has beautiful stalagmites and stalactites and clear blue water. If you wish, you can snorkel in the cenote to cool off and discover an underwater world.

Then the van will pick you up and drive you back to your accommodation, approximately 2 hours away.
