All-Inclusive Chichen Itza, Valladolid with Cenote Swim & Mexican Buffet

1,039 reviews
Chichen Itza is an ancient Maya city in Mexico that was abandoned in the 15th century. Now a UNESCO World Heritage-listed archaeological park, its intact temples, and famous stepped pyramids may be explored during this comprehensive guided tour, which tops off fun-filled history lessons with a visit to the colonial town of Valladolid and a swim in a sacred limestone waterhole. A savory buffet lunch is also included.

Instead of group tours, they are conducting private tours with your own group of cohorts. What a fascinating and fabulous place to visit and to make a donation to a very worthy cause. The owners have opened their private home and private collection of Mexican art to anybody who wants to visit and only ask for a modest donation that goes towards local charities. It is impossible to absorb everything and only one visit as there is so much of interest to look at. A big shout out to the owners for their vision and generosity.

I left Cancun ahead of hurricane Delta and spent 4 days in Valladolid. Thankfully, Casa de los Venados had reopened and I had the opportunity to visit on October 10, 2020. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but boy oh boy will you'll love it once you get inside. It's a beautiful home/museum and well worth your time. My guide told me that they offer tours at 10am, 11:30am and 1pm daily. If you have a large group and want to visit outside of these hours, you can call to see if a guide would be available. The guides are volunteers and tips are appreciated. The admission price to tour the casa is a $100 pesos / $5 US donation (at the time of this post). The collection is mind blowing. FYI, you are on a guided tour and don't just get to roam the collection on your own. It's an impressive collection and I would definitely visit again, there is so much to see.

We had the good luck to visit Valladolid in mid-October 2020, a week after Casa de los Venados reopened after a six-month Covid hiatus. What a delight to meet the American owners/managers, John and Dorianne Venator, and to tour their remarkable collection of Mexican folk art. Photo-taking is encouraged rather than frowned on, so go wild! Five stars. The tour we received from David was energetic and well-informed in three languages! I think everyone concerned is glad to be presenting this remarkable space for public view again.

What a great way to spend an hour in Valladolid! To hear how this couple purchased the house, restored it, installed over 3,000 pieces of Mexican folk art, started inviting in curious neighbors, then started inviting in the public, then started supporting charities with donations was a real treat. The tour from Miguel was excellent and seeing the variety of art was truly an enjoyable experience. Well worth the visit and a donation to good causes.

This is a hidden gem in Valladolid, we loved it so much and were lucky to visit some areas of the house the owners actually use. Place is impeccable, I have visited a lot of places and museums in Mexico and I hadn't seen so much folk art together. I can't wait for them to re open to visit again!
