We went to Cancun last August for the first time, and couldn't resist going to Chichen Itza. As first timers to Mexico, we decided to booked thru a tour company, and so we did the day tour from Cancun to Chichen Itza; but if you know Spanish and have an adventurous side, try renting a car and go by yourself......

We went on a tour of Chichen Itza through our stay at Hardrock Cancun. Our guide was very informational but kind of boring and easy to tune out. It seemed like he was tired of giving tours and not very into it. We made some extra stops along the way and there were vendors there that were selling carvings, stones,... More

The Kukulkan Pyramid in Chichen-Itza which known as “El Castillo” (the castle), is one of the new seven wonders of the world elected in... More

Long day, but worth it. Amazing the acoustics of these ancient grounds, long before Bose and stereo. Pity that you can no longer climb this wonder due to disrespectful people.

So glad I visited this mind blowing place. We went on the equinox day but we didn't see the serpent because it was to stormy. The storm was a good one though and added to the eeriness of the place. The only bad thing was our guide didn't turn up so feel I missed out a lot on the history... More

Chichen Itza is very impressive, it is a long day from Playa del Carmen but well worth it and our guide Daniel was just a hoot he made the trip that much better, the food at the site was also very good, you do have to dodge a lot of vendors on site though. On our way we stop at... More

Chichen Itza is the home of a spectacular Mayan temple which is one of the Wonders of the World. The site is home to many ruins including a large ball court and an observatory. When I visited the site many years ago, I found it a moving experience to be walking in the steps of that ancient civilization. I loved... More

Just returned from a trip to Mexico, which included Chichen Itza. The site itself if amazing, everything I thought it would be, and more, BUT the vendors ruin the atmosphere. If UNESCO is serious about keeping this site authentic the vendors need to go. Walking anywhere near the trees brings them out of the woodwork, pressuring you to buy, and... More
