Avoid navigating Quintana Roo alone on a combined tour to Ik Kil cenote and the archaeological sites of Chichen Itza and Coba. Exploring the ruins with a guide is essential, as many are unmarked and warrant context. No need to plan logistics on your own—admission tickets, meals, and transport from your Playa del Carmen hotel are included.

What to Expect
Start the tour with an early morning pickup from your Playa del Carmen hotel. Enjoy a light breakfast on the scenic drive to Chichen Itza. On arrival, your guide provides necessary context about the often unmarked ruins. Learn more about the purposes of each ancient stone structure than you could on a self-guided tour. Break up the day with a refreshing swim in a cenote—a cavernous sinkhole in limestone rock, full of freshwater and unique to the Yucatan. After lunch, continue on to the ruins of Coba, a Mayan city that once covered 31 square miles (80 square kilometers.) Your guide ensures you see points of interest that most visitors miss. Climb Nohoch Mul pyramid for panoramic views of the jungle, and then relax in the air-conditioned minivan on the return trip to your hotel.

When I started to plan my trip months ago, I thought the typical “Chichen Itza Only “ tour just looking around and taking pictures was no fun to me at all. This excursion, however, of visiting two different Mayan ruins plus the famous cenote with some physical activities
