Daily Departures from Cozumel
The Ultimate 4-in-1 Mayan Ruins Tour by Fly Cozumel soars over the Chichen Itza Ruins, considered to be the most popular tourist attraction in Mexico and on the UNESCO World Heritage List. The main pyramid of Chichen Itza of the ancient Mayan city, Kukulcan, was declared one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. From our Cessna airplane you’ll have a unique perspective of the iconic Kukulcan pyramid, the Observatory, Mayan Ball court and famous Temple of Warriors. This popular tourist area can become quite crowded with day travelers, but you and your party will have VIP air status with Fly Cozumel’s Ultimate Mayan Ruins tour.
From there, you’ll cruise over the Mayan lowlands to Ek Balam, While not as large as Chichen Itza, Ek Balam is composed of forty-five structures, including a ball court, an acropolis and a pyramid. The entire site of Ek Balam covers twelve square kilometers but only one square mile has been cleared, meaning you and your party will be able to view – and photograph – so much more than a traditional land-based tour.
Then you’ll journey over the semi-dry tropical forest of the Yucatan Peninsula to the archeological site of Coba. Coba is located between two lagoons, with Sac-bes – elevated stone and plaster roads – radiating from the central site to smaller sites both near and far. From the Air you’ll have a unique perspective to view these ancient roadways not available to regular day tours. You’ll also have a unique perspective of Ixmoja, which is the tallest pyramid in the entire Yucatan Peninsula.
Lastly, we’ll head toward Tulum, which is situated on the cliffs of the Caribbean Sea, and is considered to be one of the last of the cities built and inhabited by the Mayan population. Since the area has both land and sea access it was very important to trade routes. For the savvy traveler, these iconic Ruins viewed from above, present an amazing photo opportunity.
