Arranged a tour through Viator from Cancun to Chichen Itza. I was picked up at my hotel early in the morning and then transferred to a modern, comfortable van for the 21/2 hour ride to Chichen Itza. The guide filled us in enroute about the history of the area and what we would be seeing. His English was good but... More

When we were visiting Chichen Itza we also visited this highlight. Our expectations of Chichen Itza we're a bit different because we the entire area was going to be more secluded. Also read my review of Chichen Itza on this matter. The building stands in a grass field and has been renovated extensively. This plus the many visitors around it... More

First of all it's really better in live than on the photos. There is no comparaison, and there there is not just the Pyramide, but also other monuments around. In the tropical forest it's nice. I just regrets : 1) the costs to go there and back (I rent a car and go by road you have to pay the... More

So if you want to see the biggest one, this is it. You can no longer go inside nor climb up it. Beautifully restored.

You can no longer walk up to the top of this great structure, but the workmanship in building this object with no cranes and using man/slave power is simply amazing. In addition to this structure being very helpful in determining when the seasons occur

An amazing example of how advanced the Maya civilization was in so many ways. Their architecture was probably the same astounding example of excellence that you may see at the Great Pyramid (Egipt) or Machu Picchu ( Los Andes, Peru ). But everything around you evidences much more; they were ahead of their times, so to speak, in many ways.... More

Not worth the hassle to get there and back. A 12 hour excursion with only two hours at the site. The rest of the time is spent being "conned" along the way ...

It's been several years since I visited Chichen Itza but I will never forget the experience. When visiting Cancun or anyplace in the Yucatan, you must take time to visit Chichen Itza. There are several pyramids to see on the property. Wear comfortable shoes and if you go in the summer months be prepared for very hot weather.
