We drove to the ruins from Merida, and got there about 9am (the ruins open at 8am). It was definitely worth getting there early, as we beat most of the tour groups. The other benefit of getting there early is that the many vendors with stalls within the ruins are still setting up, so don't hassle you to buy souvenirs... More

Chichen Itza is well worth the trip from Cancun. The grounds are expansive and there is a lot of history to learn about the Mayan History. There are many sites to explore.

Our stay in Cancun meant that we were not far from the wonderful Chichen Itza. The 2.5 hour coach journey was well worth it. Known as one of the modern 7 wonders of the world, these breathtaking pyramids did not disappoint. It's a shame that you cannot climb them anymore however, you can see that they may not be safe....

We went here for a day trip during our holiday. We had a really early start, but that meant we arrived at the site by 8.30 am well ahead of the masses of people that visit every day and also before the day gets really hot. This is a site well worth seeing and takes a good 2-3 hours to... More

If you like to learn history or culture, this is good place for you to go. You will see several landmark buildings and some underground. Make sure you bring sunscreen and plenty of water before going in there.

Chichen got amazing story, our tour guide started to introduce us when leaving the hotel in Cancun, the trip almost take 3 hours to reach, but all the way the tour guide did talk many things about Maya, the history, stories and cultures, along the way we also passed the valladolid town, the ancient buildings has a different nice feeling...

This was the first time for both my kids and I visiting one of the seven wonders of the world and I can only describe it as being absolutely amazing. To be able to witness these magnificent architectural wonders in person will leave anyone speechless. I would highly recommend anyone one visiting Mexico to definitely pay a visit. I will... More

I would never discourage anyone from going to see Chichen Itza as it's one of the 7 modern wonders of the world. What I would recommend is going by car and being able to control the time you spend there - once inside and you have pics of the Castillo - there's not much else to see. You can't access... More
