We went to Chichen Itza on a guided tour from Cancun and although I usually prefer doing my own reading it was great to have a guide with the knowledge tell us about the places. The Temple is impressive and the detail work can keep you busy for a while The hawkers around the complex become aggressive and in the... More

The temple here, at Chichén Itzá, is atop a stepped pyramid. A stone recumbent figure, Chac Mool, rests there. The pyramid is partially surrounded by a couple of hundred columns, circular... More

The site itself is stunning. I didn't know that much about these people or ruins and I found the experience (once I go there) a great site. I do rate this a must see historical site.

I visited Chicheniza with my two kids and had a great time. If you are interested in History then you can't miss seeing this ancient city. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and we actually learned few things that you can't find in the Textbooks. Site is in Jungle , 200 km from the Cancun but we took luxury bus... More

Visited many ruins in Mexico, Guetemala and around the world and Chichen Itza is very disappointing. The pyramids, buildings, platforms, walls and other structures on site are VERY nice and interesting BUT it is overrun wih people and worst, HUNDREDS of sellers within the boundaries of the site. Every paths is lined up with them. And they bombard you with... More

Fascinating building in the Chichen Itza open air museum. Go with a guide so they can tell you of the building's history - which has some gruesome bits.

I went with my family and found it be very cool and different. Bring your camera !! Lots of photo moments, and lots of cool site seeing within it. It is alot of walking, so bring a backpack, water and good shoes. Where ever you go you are going to be walking to that destination. Positives+ * Actual real pyramids... More
