The #1  Cozumel Chichén Itzá shore excursion

The Mayan ruins of Chichén Itzá represent one of the most popular cultural tourist attractions in Mexico. Due to its importance, the site has been inscribed in the UNESCO World Heritage list.

Moreover, the main pyramid of the ancient Mayan city, Kukulcan, also known as El Castillo, was declared one of the New Seven Wonders of the World.

Flying to Chichén Itzá from Cozumel allows you to visit early in the morning, out of the hot sun and before the masses of tourists that arrive on day trip tours by bus.

The ancient city of Chichén Itzá is the most visited archaeological site in Mexico. The iconic Kukulcan pyramid, the Observatory, Mayan ballcourt and the famous Temple of Warriors, among other buildings and ceremonial sites, attract millions of visitors each year.

On the Fly Cozumel Chichén Itzá excursion, you’ll be able to reach this majestic World Heritage Site in just 45 minutes!

  1. Joe

    Absolutely one of the best shore excursions we have ever taken. We booked our trip direct, but our Ship was also utilizing Fly Cozumel. We opted for a private tour. We were greeted by Cynthia across the street from the cruise terminal. She had arranged prompt transport to the airport, where we were met by our pilot. We had our own aircraft and flew out to Chichen Itza, where we were met by a driver who drove us to the site. Our guide was outstanding and was able to answer every question we had. The Fly Cozumel team got us back to our ship on time. This was a fantastic experience; my absolute highest recommendation for them. And special thank you to Cynthia, our host, for taking such good care of use

    What a great company and what an amazing way to visit the ruins at Chichen Itza. We were picked up at the port complex by our guide and taken to the airport, where a full briefing was given, then a very smooth flight over to Chichen Itza airport, where a taxi was waiting to take us with our guide to the ruins. Arrived at the ruins well before the maddening crowds came along in the tour buses, so we had the place virtually to our selves. We had a local guide take us around the temples and courtyards, explaining in great detail about the history of the site, without having to wait for stragglers to keep up. There was only the 2 of us in the group, so it was a very personal tour, best way to see this location. Flight home was a little bumpy, but was to be expected, but nothing more than driving on a bumpy national park road, so nothing to be worried about. After the flight, a taxi was called and we were taken back to the port, with plenty of time left to do some other exploring on our own. Highly recommend this company if you are looking for a flight across to Chichen Itza and a personilised tour of the ruins.

    Our hostess Cynthia picked us up 1/28/2020 at the Hard Rock right outside the ship pier and she accompanied us the rest of the day. We boarded a 206 for the flight to the ruins. Our pilot was very knowledgeable of the surrounding area pointing out all the landmarks and other interesting areas. It was a great perspective.
    We arrived in the morning before the heat of the day or the masses of other tourist. We returned to the ship refreshed approximately 4 hours later. Not like the others that had to endure the water taxi and 8 hours of bus travel to see the same sights as us! Yes, this trip is highly recommended!

    Seamless Great Experience!

    First let me say this was my second trip to Chichen Itza, the first was via bus. The Bus experience is very much an all day venture with 2 plus hours each way and kind of a rushed tour to get through it all with a group of people. Its a long all day experience( this explanation is for those who don’t know).

    This experience was fantastic for us. It is not inexpensive but for those who want to have more quality time on their vacation rather than sitting on a bus or waiting in line… its worth it. First their representative , I believe her name was Cynthia met us in the lobby of our hotel lobby at 8am and took care of us from there, she was with us through the entire day to ensure things went as planned , Our babysitter lol we are not high maintenance but she is very nice and knowledgeable on the local scene as well, she arranged everything. To make this short the flight was about 50 min each way ( I am a commercial pilot and the airplane is new with all the modern upgrades and air conditioning and the pilot was very capable and professional ), we had a wonderful private tour guide very knowledgeable ( Mr. Turtle). No waiting in lines , great tour before it got very hot and humid( made it much more enjoyable…it is the jungle). Grabbed a bite to eat at the park and back to the plane and our hotel by 2 pm in time for a margarita or two on the beach for the rest of the day. Very relaxed and enjoyable. I will highly recommend this for people who want to maximize their relax time. 5 stars from both of us!
