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
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!
