After visiting the Mayan Ruins in Tulum a few days earlier, my friends and I took a 3 hour bus ride from the resort in Cancun to Merida to visit this monumental, historic landmark. Be prepared to bring lot's of water. It get's fairly hot in this region. The main pyramid, Kukulcan, dominates the entire location. It was almost serial... More

A bit of a journey (the trip took all day) but well worth the visit. Very hot - take plenty of water and sunshade/hats etc and be prepared for a bit of walking. Very interesting and amazing place and not difficult to ignore the vendors if you want to.

You have to go there, even if it's a 2 1/2 hour ride! Make sure to get someone to tour you, though! It's really jot in the summer and there are too many vendors, but you have to see it!

El Castillo! Or rather, Kulkulcan Pyramid deserves being one of the wonders of the world! Being here was so captivating. The best thing is to arrive here very early in the morning so that you don't have to join the long lines which start around 10am. Obviously for safety reasons, it is not possible to climb to the top of... More

We travelled here in our rental car and had no problem finding our way. It is well organized and managed. We were hungry when we arrived so we had some lunch in the cafe. We did not expect great things from an attraction cafe but it may have been our favorite meal on our trip. The pyramid and ruins are... More

Visually a stunning pyramid to visit, two sides are in perfect condition and is the best for your photo, these are the two sides that you see in every major photo. Don't forget to clap in front of Pyramid to hear the sound of a bird. You can see why this place is a new 7 wonder of the world.

In addition to the amazing pyramid, there are a lot of surrounding ruins. Moreover, an old lady who has > 80% Mayan breed was there (see photo). Bought a silver... More
