Every night, at sunset, the great pyramid of El Castillo shines through the night. Come see one of the New 7 Wonders of the World and admire how the centerpiece of this famous ancient Mayan complex comes to life with a light & sound show. See its majestic structure come alive with 3D mapping projection, dramatic lighting and images.

The ancient story of the Mayas is told in unusual fashion, giving you a unique glimpse into the history of Chichen Itza and the Mayan empire.  Through  rhythmic lights and sounds we will learn Mayan theories on how the universe was created, and understand just how impressive the Mayan civilization was.

Your tour will start by taking a guided tour of Chichen Itza, after which we will have a delicious dinner at a local Mexican restaurant.  You will have some free time to take photos of the lighted temples, then it's time to enjoy the evening's entertainment, as the lights are projected on the Kukulkan pyramid and the night show begins. A unique experience that gives you a different perspective of the Mayan culture!

The light & sound show is something unique and different.  If Tuesday doesn't work for your schedule, consider our Private Tours that can take you any night of the week.  Something fun, but if your schedule doesn't work out, don't worry too much - plan to just take the day tour instead.  Touring the ruins is the real highlight.

Depending on weather conditions, there's a possibility that the 3D Projection in the pyramid Kukulkan gets canceled. If this happens, guest will be eligible for a partial refund.

Cruise Passengers:  This tour is not compatible with cruise schedules.  We suggest considering a tour to Tulum or Coba instead for your cruise excursion.
