Too bad you can't still climb it. So lovely. Amazing history. Get a guide if you can, and wear sunglasses and a hat.

Our guide Eric was magic. The location matched him. We had the most memorable day steeped in an ancient time, it was like nothing else I had ever expected or experienced. The mayan culture , the observatories and the buildings are absolutely astonishing. No concrete, like other ancient buildings , especially those in Asia they used a mix that was... More

Alberto provided facts and views from every angle. Alberto took photos for us, told us the facts and fiction. We arrived before the crowds so that me might see the pyramid and understand the site.

The pyramid is well restored on two sides (they can use only original stones) giving you an idea what it looked like when in its prime. Great place to visit but get ready for the heat. It is way hotter here than in coastal Cancun. Buy some water in advance although you will have an option to buy $3 bottled... More

If you go, do the 10 claps. Then you'll hear the echo of the birds. Really neat! Also if you visit during the equinoxes (first day of spring and fall) you will see amazing alignments of the sun over the pyramid.

Visited Chichen Itza whist staying near Cancun. My wife and I can only echo all the other observations. It will be VERY hot, take lots of water, it's a long way, the scenery on the way is boring jungle but the actual site is absolutely amazing and well worth all the 'problems' to get there. You'll probably only go there... More

Loved learning the history of The Mayan's from our tour group. All day trip but so worth it. Book a shorter tour if possible.
