Chichen Itza private tour costs from Cancun

Post by Cancun Manny » Fri Nov 08, 2013 2:44 pm

This is the information of the costs associated with CancunWithMe's custom Cancun private tours to Chichen Itza. My other Chichen Itza post has more general information regarding your options.

Transportation, for groups of 1 to 7 people, $310 and for groups of 8 to 14 $390

Optional Personal host,$100 (remember, personal hosts are NOT informational guides that give historical narration of the sites)

Toll road fees 620 pesos for the round trip. If you are going from Playa del Carmen or Puerto Aventuras area, there is a new section of the toll road that would get you there much quicker, and the round trip fare is a bit lower than from Cancun. If you are staying in Akumal or Tulum area, your best bet is to go through Coba, no tolls but lots of speed bumps.

Chichen Itza admissions:
Adults 237 pesos
Children between 4 and 12 years of age 70 pesos
Parking 30 pesos
Optional local guide 900 pesos
(rates updated Jan 24 2016)

Balam Kanche caves
119 pesos (to be confirmed, rates went up on 1/1/2017)
**Balam Kanche lets people in once an hour on the hour, and if 3 or less people show up for a tour they reserve the right to cancel the tour and offer a refund**

Cenotes in Dzitnup. The popular stop for cenote is Ik Kill, basically a tourist trap, nice cenote but not with hundreds of other people. We take our groups to the cenotes in Dzitnup which are nicer, we encourage you to research this info to verify. They have two cenotes in the town of Dzitnup, Xkeken and Samula. Each cenote is 90 peso to visit. If you visit both I suggest you visit Samula first then Xkeken, if you only decide to visit one cenote I would suggest Xkeken.

Lunch at local restaurant about 100 to 150 pesos per person. This is not the classic tour restaurant/buffet that serve mostly to tourists. We take folks to one of the best local restaurants in Valladolid, Oasis Familiar, that caters mostly to the locals. They specialize in Yucatecan classic dishes like Poc Chuch, Relleno Negro, Cochinita Pibil, Panuchos, Longaniza, Papadzules, etc. Most of the dishes are either chicken or pork based. Our past clients offer refer to it as the best meal they had while in vacation in the area. For those looking for a more high end type places, we also suggest La Taberna de los Frailes.

Ek Balam Ruin
Adults 210 pesos
Children 12 and under 65 pesos
(updated Jan 24 2016)

The fees we mention in pesos you are better off paying in pesos, and the fees mentioned in USD you are better off paying in USD.

In the 14 hours that we offer, folks would be able to visit Chichen Itza, Balamkanche, the two centoes in Dzitnup, lunch in Valladolid, visit to Ek Balam Ruins, and then stroll through Valladolids main plaza. However making all the stops is not recommended for everyone. The majority of the tours we do visit Chichen Itza, Xkeken cenote, have lunch in Valladolid, then finish with a visit to Ek Balam. The goal is for you guys to decide which stops you want to make and how long you want to stay at each of the locations.

We suggest a 6am start for Chichen tours (seems during parts of the year we will suggest a 6am start and others we will suggest a 7am start when Cancun is one hour ahead of Chichen Itza), mostly to get to Chichen shortly after 8am when they open. This way we beat all the large bus tours, plus it is much cooler in the mornings before the sun starts to warm everything up. For many folks a 6am start is too early, specially during vacation. We can start the tour at what ever time you decide. However the later you start the less stops you can make, basically you can't start at 8am, and expect to visit Chichen, Balam Kanche, two centoes, lunch and Ek Balam since all attractions close by 5pm.

The stops I've mentioned are the most populars and what we suggest for time visitors to the area, however we can help you set up a customize your tour with other stops instead, like a visit to San Bernardino convent, Casa Venado museum, the Tequila Factory (which is not as touristy as the ones in Cancun and Playa del Carmen).

Hello Manny we want to leave from Villa Del Mar at 6 am per your suggestion. Go to Chichen Itza. We also want to go to Sambal Cenote. Is there a zip line course in between the two destinations or? I like to utilize the time we have with the van. Please let me know. And it looks like I will have to scan the form and email it back to you or is there a better way?
Thank you Anna Berg.

There are no ziplines in the area. The chichen link has most of the info and options for the chichen tour.

The form is a word document. No need to print it out, you can open the file, fill in the info then save the file and send it as an ayyachment.

Hi Manny, I would like to know if you pay up front before you leave the resort or you pay as you go?

Most folks pay the tolls, meals, admissions, etc as they go, and when we return they pay our balance. Some chose to pay our balance at the beginning of the trip.
