    Your Be Maya® experience begins by picking you up in our luxurious Mercedes Benz, between 7 & 8 am from the lobby of your hotel or one of the designated departure points. You’ll be able to enjoy breakfast while you learn about some background on Mayan history and culture on your way to Chichen Itza, home to the only Wonder of the Modern World in North America.

    The Be Maya® program consists of a day packed with unforgettable activities to help bring your knowledge of the Mayan culture full-circle.

    Your day will consist of:

    – The Mayan Spirituality Experience:
    Be part of an authentic Mayan ceremony officiated by a H’men, a Mayan priest, and witness a spiritual ceremony that only he can perform.

    – The Secrets of the Mayan Cuisine:
    Discover the secrets of Mayan cuisine by being guided through the preparation of one of the most traditional dishes in Yucatecan cuisine, “Pollo Pibil”. After cooking this delicious dish, you’ll have the chance to try your creation!

    – The Mayan Numerology Lesson:
    The use of the number 0 and the binary number system we use in computers today was invented by the Maya. Learn its basic principles and understand their numerology.

    – Observe the Universe:
    Your journey continues as you witness the movie “Tales of the Maya Skies”, a short film projected on a 360-degree surface in our Mayan Planetarium produced by The Chabot Space & Science Center. This presentation will give you a better understanding of the significance of their temples, just before you walk to them for your visit to the Maya´s most holy city, Chichen Itza.

    – Explore the Temples of the Sacred City of Chichen Itza:
    You’ll enter Chichen Itza’s archaeological site through our private gates, skipping the long lines the main entrance has. Accompanied by our professional Gray Line, government certified, bilingual guide you will learn about the historical significance of all of the most important temples of the Classic Maya Central Area (not visited by most other visitors to Chichen Itza) as well as the Maya Toltec northern section, site of the most visited temples; giving you a privileged experience.

    – Lunch and Maya Language Lesson:
    Enjoy the “Pollo Pibil” you prepared earlier! Our home in the heart of Chichen Itza, the Mayaland Hotel & Bungalows is privileged to have an all-Maya group of collaborators that will enrich your experience with their participation by sharing their language, customs and ways of life with you.

    You will treasure this experience; one we are sure you will share with loved ones and friends back home. Nowhere else will you be able to experience a day like this, one with activities covering all of the main points in Maya culture; meant for anyone who wants to have fun while learning about it.
