Don’t miss this trip to one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. We’re talking Chichén Itzá, the jewel of the Yucatán peninsula’s antiquities. An important Mayan capital between 600-1200AD, its ruins won’t disappoint. See the Temple of the Jaguars and macabre Tzompantli bench, where heads of sacrificial victims were displayed. And marvel at the other monuments, plazas and ballcourt. Overshadowing everything is the Kukulkan, a vast, 365-stepped pyramid. Twice a year, shadows create a serpentine shape down its north staircase - a clue to its huge astronomical significance to the Mayans. After a buffet lunch where you can sample some typical food of the Yucatan, you'll visit the colonial town of Valladolid.
