We took a Chichen Itza tour while staying in Barcelo Resort (Riviera Maya) in May 2015. Here is the extract from my complete Barcelo resort review: Chichen Itza Deluxe tour - visits Chichen Itza and has dinner at one of the restaurants in Valladolid. Here is what promised - pickup by luxury bus, comfortable drive to Chichen Itza, tour and... More

Of course any trip to the Yucatan must include a visit to Chichen-Itza, which is included in the list of 7 new wonders of the world. The Kukulcan temple is simply amazing and I'm a little disappointed that you can no longer climb to the top, as I think the way the sunlight hits the openings at the top of... More

Very nice place to visit. It was a long hot day but very interesting. Be sure to have a hat, sunscreen and insect repellent.

We were able to rent a car through our hotel and drove out to Chichen Itza. Make sure that you visit the Ik Kil Cenote while you are out there, especially after spending the morning in the hot sun! Be aware that you will need pesos to pay tolls, about 400 pesos each way. They do not accept any international... More

Best to get there as early as possible. The coaches from Cancun arrive around 11.00am so if you want people free pictures be early

Booked through Thomas Cook rep from hotel, was a long day but well worth especially with our Hilarious guide "Jesus" who made the history lesson come alive with fun. Was amazed at the sites and sounds of this place and can see why its one of the 7 wonders. As said before its a long day, take sun protection and... More

You must see this place but straight away when it opens, we managed to get pictures of the pyramid with no one else around, empty and clear it was amazing, as we were leaving you couldn't see the grass for people so help yourself and be there for 8am opening and get the best pictures! There are also guides there... More

The Mayan temple of Chichen Itza is an engineering marvel that shows great knowledge of Mayan astronomy and architecture. Their knowledge of astronomy enable them to predict eclipses, solar, and lunar eclipses. The Maya had sophisticated calendar that was as good as the modern calendar. If you were born between October 5 - 10 you destiny was to be sacarfice.
