You can’t stay any closer to the Mayan wonders in the Chichén Itzá Archaeological Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, than your rooms in the Lodge at Chichén Itzá.  Located in the heart of over one thousand acres of natural and landscaped grounds, the Lodge offers an exclusive private entrance to Chichén Itzá, home to one of the New Seven Wonders of the World, El Castillo.  We are happy to arrange private guided tours of the pyramids and temples and horse back tours of the ruins of Old Chichén, something most visitors seldom explore.

The bungalows at the Lodge at Chichén Itzá are hand-built from local materials in designs inspired by traditional Mayan “Casitas”.  Highlights include hand-carved mahogany furniture, doors and room accents, artisan stained-glass windows, and extensive use of local marble and handmade terracotta tiles.  All bungalows are nestled around our three swimming pools, and provide both privacy and relaxing views of our manicured gardens and grounds. Each bungalow features furnished, over-large terraces and hammocks, a local art form.  You have only to enjoy the tropical breeze and the tranquility of this rich environment.

Three restaurants are available to cater to any appetite, with Mayan cuisine a specialty.  Our Lobby Bar offers a welcome respite after a day’s adventures by serving a broad array of libations including tropical cocktails and an extensive selection of tequilas.  Sit back and relax while marveling to the performance of the Yucatecan Jaranda dancers, and gaze out at the fabulous views of the nearby Caracol, the Mayan observatory.

Guests of The Lodge at Chichén Itzá are welcome to use all the extensive facilities of the adjacent Mayaland Hotels and Bungalows.  Established in 1923, Mayaland is the first hotel built within the grounds of an archaeological site in the New World. Still run today by the direct descendants of the founder.  We warmly invite you to experience the comforts and gracious hospitality we have been refining for nearly a century.

It’s easy to get here:  The Merida International Airport is a mere 90-minute drive away, while the Cancun International Airport is only two hours by car.
