Or you may want to do nothing but read a book while sitting on the white sand of the beach.

|Wednesday, January 10:
Today we will visit the ancient Mayan city of Chichen Itza, one of the Seven Wonders of the World! The Kukulkan Temple at Chichen Itza stands over 70 feet tall. Kukulkan is the name the Mayans gave to Deity. Kukulkan is represented by a feathered serpent. This astronomical wonder was designed so that at the Spring and Winter Equinoxes, the rising and setting sun will cast a shadow in the shape of a plumed serpent that slithers down the Northern side of the pyramid to the serpent’s head at the base. We will also see one of the largest Ball Courts in Yucatan and many other ancient structures at this fascinating site. Chichen Itza was built after 550AD.
Our tour guides are members of the Church. While traveling to Chichen Itza, they will share with us the history of the Church in Mexico.
This tour also includes an authentic Mexican lunch buffet featuring some of the best Mexican food you’ve ever tasted!
This day trip is eight hours in length and is included in the price of the tour. Air conditioned private transportation, bottled water, lunch, entrance to Chichen Itza, and personal tour guides are included. A credit toward the cost of your trip will be provided if you choose at the time of registration to not visit Chichen Itza with the group.

Garret Batty bio: (coming soon!)
What is an All-Inclusive Resort: You may be more familiar with a cruise than an all-inclusive resort. Like a cruise, an all-inclusive resort offers you unlimited food, drinks, entertainment, and access to amenities. Everything is included for one cost. However, a cruise provides a small cabin, crowds, noise, booze and casinos, and not too much flexibility for our schedule. An all-inclusive resort offers unlimited food & drinks, spacious accommodations, a beach that never leaves, less crowds, peace & quiet, space to yourself, flexibility for our group schedule, a desirable atmosphere, world class restaurants, and endless options of things to do on your own time. Everything, except airfare, is included with your all-inclusive tour rate.
Airfare: Would you like to fly round trip from Salt Lake City with the group? We can add you to the group flight and escort you from the Salt Lake airport to the resort, and back to Salt Lake. Prices for the group flight will be announced in July 2023. Let us know on your registration form if you are interested. If you are not flying from Salt Lake, or if you wish to fly on your own, just let us know your flight details and we will let the resort know when to expect you.
Chichen Itza Tour: This is not a “Book of Mormon Tour”. Although some Mayan religious beliefs may sound familiar to you, I do not promote one “Book of Mormon Geography” theory over another. Chichen Itza was built long after the close of the Book of Mormon. The ancient Mayan culture and architecture will leave you amazed!
Booking Requirements: $300 per person is due at the time of registration.
Terms and Conditions: All rates are per person. If making your final payment by credit card, please add 3% for the bank transaction fee. Final payment is due October 8, 2023. 100% refunds are available prior to that date.
