Small groups staying at Mexico City’s Marquis Reforma Hotel have the option of an overnight trip, via private jet, to Chichen Itza, a World Heritage site and one of the Seven New Wonders of the World.
The package includes two nights stay at the Marquis Reforma, a massage at Spa Marquis, all ground transportation, breakfast and lunch and a one-night stay at the Lodge Chichen Itza Hotel.
Meaning “at the mouth of the well of the Itza,” the archeological site features stone buildings in various states of preservation, most notably, the Pyramid of Kukulkan, which is 79 ft. tall and has 365 steps, one for each day of the year. The Great Ball Court, used as an offering to the gods or to settle disputes via game competitions, is 40 ft. long and features two 25 ft. walls running alongside the field.
