View of Ancient Mayan Ruins Called Chicne Itza, Yucatan, Mexico
Unlock ancient Mayan mysteries while combing the crumbling ruins of Chichén Itzá. Admire Puuc-style palaces, grand temples, the Great Ball Court, and sky-high El Castillo pyramid on a tour of one of the most stunning and well-preserved Mayan sites on the planet.
Jump feet-first into the sparkling turquoise waters of a cenote. These magical underground sinkholes nestled in the Yucatecan jungle were once considered sacred by the Maya. Today you can jump right in for a swim or cave diving, with some even offering restaurants and spa amenities.
Many Mexican dishes feature chile peppers, which can be pickled, smoked, stuffed or stewed. Restaurants lining Calle 19 serve fresh seafood dishes and Yucatecan tamales, which are typically filled with chicken and cooked in underground ovens. Cochinita pibil (pork in savory achiote sauce) is a local signature, as is xtabentúm, a honey-anisette liqueur and sacred Mayan ceremonial drink.
A collection of souvenir shops are located right at the cruise terminal. At the Progreso Crafts Market local artisans sell handmade jewelry, woven blankets, onyx carvings and replicas of Mayan artifacts. Hit the farmer’s market for fresh tropical fruit — or head to Merida’s market district for locally made goods.
