Just one of the most wonderful experiences ever. Our guide Simon Chaves was outstanding.I would recommend booking through Thomsons if I explained why I would be giving their secrets away take my word WELL WORTH IT.

My wife and I had this on our "must do" list when we decided to have two weeks in Playa del Carmen. We found out about all the different options to visit this site. There is the organised group option either in a coach of 40+ persons or mini van of 12. This is a whole day trip that also... More

Chichen Itza is an amazing site. I loved hearing the history of the Mayan ruins, the Mayan research and ways of life. It's fascinating to learn about the technology they used and how they built the pyramids. We ended up going on a rainy day, I'd advise you to buy the ponchos or bring an umbrella if it looks like...

Guided by Mayaland Tours we had a wonderful visit to this world heritage site. Its large and has a character all of its own. You can really see how the locals coming out from the jungle, would have trembled at such a wonderous site, it can only awe and inspire. We think we are so clever, and yet they built... More

Okay let's start with a bit of info/advice. Cash only for tickets but there is ATM in the nearby town. No ATM on sight. People with cars must pay for the secure parking area. Currency exchange near the ticket counter but high rates. Loads of people but ques move quickly at the ticket counter. Toilet facilities available. Don't shop over... More

I did the tour to Chichen Itza last after traveling three weeks in Mexico with a friend. We already saw a lot of pyramids and didn't expect too much new from Chichen Itza, but it turned out to become a very good trip. The archaeological site of Chichen Itza is quite big and there is a lot of stuff to... More

Amazing place. Try to arrive at opening (8 am) so you avoid the tourbuses). What might be good too is to see sunset, which is pretty early in november (around 17.00)

We've been coming to Mexico for Years now this was a First Visit to this Incredible Site. My Only disappointment was did not have enough time to Explore Further. Will definately go back Great for Whole Family Recommend getting a Guide so you get Full Exposure. Very Commercial you just need to filter out all the Vendors. A Must see
