indeed very impressive

We took our time to see every building in this so easily navigatable complex and it took us exactly 4 hours. Indeed: come early!

Confess to a little disappointment after visiting Teotihuacan, but still fabulous, but no climbing up the pyramids any more. Compact site, easy to walk around on the flat, but almost no cover from the sun - be warned re sun cream, water and comfy shoes. Useful to take a guide, Eduardo from Viator tours was exceptionally knowledgeable. You may need... More

We visited this amazing temple complex for a morning. The Maya architecture was very impressive and well restored. We were on a tour of Maya sites and this one was very busy with detracted from the atmosphere a bit. Hints, go early to avoid the crowds and take plenty of water as it can get very hot. Expect lots of... More

This is rated as one if the seven wonders of the world. We took a guided tour from cancun and it is a long bus journey of 2.5 hours. However the site is very interesting and our guide was informative. Bring a hat and suncream as it gets very hot and there is little cover. Worth the visit.

-the acoustics are interesting (although may not be authentic before the rebuild) -can't climb it -the day where the serpant's shadow is seen is excellent -the day without your own shadow is excellent

It is located on road from Cancun or Tulum to Merida. Approximately 130 km from Merida. It huge complex of Mayan buildings. The most beautiful is Kukulcan pyramid which is directly in the middle of the whole complex of buildings. Entrance fee is almost 30 USD. When you will go there do not use highway from Cancun to Merida because... More

We had pre booked a tour to Chichen Itza and only on arrival in Mexico did we realise that we were visiting on the day of the spring equinox. Although the site was extremely busy it was worth it to experience the sun breaking through the clouds just in time to see the fantastic light effect on the pyramid. Recommended!... More
