A must see whilst in Mexico, best to get a private tour as journey time is only 2 and a half hours instead of 4 and a half.

We had a very early start 5.15 am,but it was well worth it to beat the crowds.We had a great guide who allowed us plenty of time to have a good look at each site & plenty of information.The vendors were only just setting up so not too much hassle.The guide warned us about certain items that were not suitable...

I was not disappointed. What an amazing site. We went with Grayline tours. The guide went on a little especially when standing in the midday sun. Wished we could have visited by ourselves but the site is amazing. If you wonder why everyone is always clapping, go up to them and give it a go. You will be amazed. Great... More

I have to say, I was wondering whether or not to go... as its a very early start... and sitting on a bus is not my idea of fun... especially in that heat. However, I bit the bullet... and did it. So pleased I went. What a spectacular site. So special and so much bigger than I ever realised. So... More

We paid for the more expensive guided tour. Unfortunately, I felt like we were speeding around the site. We stood a while under a tree in some shade within view of the Hall of Warriors (which I really wanted to see) while our guide talked about the Mayan calendar. We never went any closer to the Hall of Warriors. Bummer!... More

A trip to Chichen Itza is a must when visiting the Yucatan province in Mexico. The Ruins, History and Beauty are mind blowing when you consider the city was constructed around the thirteenth century. Give yourself at least 5 hours. Take care when buying wooden gifts from the local traders, they use old wood that may have been infected with... More

We went with a tour group early in the AM and beat all of the crowds! Loved learning abuot Mayan culture. Didn't enjoy the aggressive vendors with the weird "panther calls" - prepare yourself to say, "No gracias!" a lot. It's very hot, so I would aim to get there very early in the morning or when they have it... More

Loved the place and history. Super trippy stuff. Weather was funky, but totally worth standing outside for. The pyramid and area is just amazing.
