The #1  Cozumel Chichen Itza shore excursion

The Mayan ruins of Chichen Itza 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 Chichen Itza 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 Chichen Itza 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.

  1. R.

    We were on a cruise that stopped in Cozumel for the day and we wanted to visit the pyramids at Chichen Itza. Not wanting to spend most of the day in a bus traveling to the site we decided to book with Fly Cozumel.

    It was just my wife and me. We were met at the port terminal by Fernanda and a short cab ride to the airport. There we met our pilots Abraham and Tortuga. My wife was a little apprehensive about flying in a small prop plane but the pilots were very reassuring.

    A forty minute flight got us to the site where we met Jorge our tour guide. He is very knowledgeable and did a great job taking us around the ruins. Fascinating place to visit.

    All in all a wonderful day that we highly recommend to anyone wishing to avoid a long bus ride and all the lines at Chichen Itza.

    As Jorge said to us, “Hasta la Vista, baby!”

    Highlight of our trip! Our flight to Chichen Itza through Fly Cozumel was definitely the highlight of the trip. Our other option was to take a longggg bus ride to and from the site, which would have killed our only day in Cozumel. There was so much value in the excursion Fly Cozumel provided, from the seamless pickup at our port coordinated by Leo, to the spectacular flights between Cozumel airport and Chichen Itza airport by pilot Arturo, to the super-informative private guided tour by “the Tortuga”, to our awesome escort Sandra, and everything else. As a pilot, it was nice to experience general/charter aviation in Mexico, and to see the planes so well-maintained. Highly recommended.

    Last week we were in Cozumel and were hoping to join a shared trip to Chichen Itza with Fly Cozumel. The weather didn’t cooperate a couple of the days but towards the end of our week we decided it would be too much for us to take a taxi to the ferry then the ferry to the mainland and then a bus of several hours to Chichen Itza. By flying in a smaller plane with Fly Cozumel we got to enjoy this magnificent Mayan ruin with a private guide who had a lot of knowledge of these ancient peoples. The flight over and back was quick and a highlight of our time in Cozumel.

    Fly Safe – I booked this company for four people in our family to fly from Cozumel to Chichen Itza.
    In my research I found two other companies that offered the same tour, but for less money. One company did not respond to my inquiry. The other company seemed eager for the business, but upon further investigation, I discovered they record was dubious. Everyone was happy that I chose such a reputable vendor. The flights, the ground transport, and the tour were all topnotch. The lunch (included) was enjoyed and appreciated.

  5. Rich

    The trip to Chichen Itza was easily the highlight of our week-long cruise. Everyone that participated in the trip from your team was wonderful. My son is still telling everyone he meets about the flight!

    Many thanks and merry Christmas,
