I absolutely loved my visit to Chichen Itza. I travelled here with my mom and sister and did a day tour (as we were staying a few hours away in Puerto Adventuras). The ruins are absolutely fascinating and I would love to go back! Became extremely ill the day of this tour and spent a lot of time in the... More

I was lucky enough to have climbed the pyramid. The second time i came, they were barring people from going up which is a huge pity. There are carvings at the top and the whole pyramid is a depiction of the mayan calendar. Read before you go, it makes the trip better.

This is the most suggestive place I've ever visited. My and my wife were there in a not crowded day, with the sun being a little covered by gray clouds. The atmosphere, the big temple, the ancient observatory and all the other monuments were impressive. The only pity of the place is the huge amount of people trying to sell... More

Visiting this part of Mexico for the first time, we felt that we just had to visit Chichen Itza. The tour company recommended arriving early which meant an early start from our hotel (7am) at Akumal and we arrived at about 9:15 whicAh was great as it was not very busy. That changed quite dramatically within 1.5 hours! The main... More

This is a must see for archeological enthusiasts. I have explored Mayan ruins throughout Central America... Copan, Honduras was my favorite and this is #2. The only bad part was we went in the summer and the heat was oppressive. Also the trip from Playa Del Carmen was interesting but unnerving when we had to go thru a military check... More

Had a great excursion to Chichen Itza when we stayed in Mexico. I would definitely recommend for anyone to visit. We were lucky and had a fantastic guide, so learned a lot. The ruins and the sight were much bigger than expected. Also we bought quite a few nice souvenirs here to bring home. There were so many lizards around... More

The Mayan culture unravels itself and is one of the wonders. They created a whole civilization based on their obsession with astronomy. Incredible !!
