Imagine a sky full of stars, a balmy evening at the foot of the pyramids and buildings built by a fantastic culture, lasting for centuries, which still surprises us to this day. All this is yours to experience in Chichén Itzá, at Noches de Kukulkán, an audiovisual presentation that describes Maya cosmogony, their particular vision about the origin of the planet and of humanity, as well as the history of this place which is one of the New 7 Wonders of the World.


Let yourself be swept away by a show that will excite you from beginning to end, with your eyes always wide open, whether you take the night tour or watch the illuminated projections of images on the El Castillo pyramid, dedicated to the god Kukulkán. You must be asking, how do I go? Here we explain step by step what you have to do to experience this event.


1.Visit the site and go to the “Compra tus boletos” section or call 999 126 9925 (9 am to 1 pm) to book.
2. Select your preferred date and the number of tickets you wish to purchase. Entrance fee: $708 pesos from Thursday to Saturday and $325 on Sundays.

With your ticket you can also take the 45 minute-long night tour before the audiovisual projection, although it is not always available due to maintenance. Ask for headphones to listen in various languages.

Afterwards you can go find your seat for the show; at this time it is only given in English and Spanish.
