MAYAN WORLD ARCHAEOLOGICAL
S
ITES IN YUCATAN, MEXICO:

These are Mayan archaeological Maya sites that are closest to Hacienda Chichen:

Chichen Itza - Home of the impressive Kukulkan Mayan Pyramid, an ancient Maya calendar temple selected as one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. Chichen Itza has been the most famous of all Mayan world archaeological zones in Yucatan, Mexico, since the early 1920s. We recommend travelers to stay at least two night in our eco-friendly resort to explore and enjoy the various eco-cultural activities this Mayan world region offers, including Light and Sound Shows at Chichen Itza, enjoying birding after a gourmet meal, explore our Maya Jungle gardens; visit Merle Greene Museum, indulge in a Mayan Spa treat at Yaxkin Spa.

Check our guestrooms which housed famous archaeologists like Dr. S. MorleyOld Chichen - Nowadays this Mayan world area is closed to the general public, some guests may request a visit permit to the official INAH. Located a short southbound walk from the Casco or Main Colonial House of the Hacienda, Chichen Viejo is under INAH reconstruction.

Balankanche Caves - Located just five minutes drive from the Hacienda Chichen. We recommend our guests to visit Balankanche caves one of the Mayan world's most impressive Maya Ceremonial caves and underground waterways. Here ancient Maya World Initiation and Ceremonial Rites were celebrated by the Mayan Senior Wiseman or Aj Men J-Men (1950s). Balankanche is easy to explore and visitors can see Mayan offerings vessels still in place within the main Mayan cave dome and ceremonial site.

Ek Balam - A 30 min. drive from Hacienda Chichen, via Valladolid, you will find this beautiful Mayan world site, restored in the 1990s. Ek Balam temples have great Mayan sculptural architecture details in Yucatan. An ancient Mayan world city, Ek Balam has small Mayan temples around a main Mayan pyramid decorated with Mayan glyphs, Mayan stone carvings, fascinating Mayan stucco sculptures, and facades.

Yaxuna - An enchangting Mayan world site near Yaxcaba, (visit its lovely Colonial Cathedral). Yaxuna may be a minor Mayan world city but it boasts the longest "sac-be" (ancient Mayan white road) ever found, which is 101 Km. straight through the Mayan jungle to ancient city of Kabah.

Coba - This famous Mayan world city is about an hour car drive away from Hacienda Chichen Resort, south of Valladolid. Coba Mayan temples are reached by walking or biking in a rented bicycle. Coba's Maya temples are impressive and well kept.

Dzibilchaltun - This Mayan world archaeological site is just 90 min. away from Hacienda Chichen. A minor Mayan world site compared to Chichen Itza, Uxmal or Coba, but we recommend a visit to Dzibilchaltun where visitors will find a well-designed museum dedicated to the Maya Culture and Colonial History in Yucatan, Mexico. After viewing the Mayan ruins and temples, such as the House of the Seven Dolls, visitors can put on their bathing suits and go for a refreshing swim in Dzibilchaltun's open-air Mayan cenote.

There are many other ancient archaeological Mayan sites travelers may wish to visit within two and three hours drive, such as Uxmal, Edzna, Sayil, and Kabah.
