This is a spectacular attraction. It is a long day, 5:45 start, but worth it. My wife visited a few years ago when you could still climb the main pyramid. This is no longer possible unfortunately.

Beautiful, well preserved archeological sight. I was well impressed by the knowledge of the tour guide people working there and how they showed to tourist the importance to keep alive their origins and the culture.

We drove early with a rental car. We arrived before the vendors started haggling tourists. It got hot fairly quick, find shade when you can. We opened a guided tour on the iPad before leaving the hotel so we were able to access it while walking around without wifi.

I'm simply amazed by the ruins! The Mayans were genius! The fact that they built these gigantic structures by hand still blows my mind. The history is is so interesting. Very wise people.

Excellent early morning visit through Thomson's not busy and plenty of time to do most of the site. Started to fill up later complete with the rise of temperature. Lots of market stalls although a bit pushy.

The journey from our hotel was about 3 hours, the tour guide "loopy" was really nice, passing round photos and giving lots of... More

Everyone should visit this site. I've seen documentaries about Chichen Itza and the Mayans but nothing compares to being there and seeing it in person. The site is one of the "New 7 Wonders of the World" and a World Heritage Site, so it is very crowded. Our tour guide told us thousands of people visit a day. Since so... More
