Chichen Itza is a beautiful place. It was 204-206 pesos each to get in, avoid going on a Sunday becauselocals can get in free and it can get quite busy. We didn't realise that when we arrived ourselves on the Sunday but luckily we got there early so we avoided the massive queues which were piling up as we left.... More

I was surprised the height of the structure was not nearly as high as expected. Apart from this particular structure, the other structures were even less impressive. So I was disappointed to say the least, considering it is apparently considered one of the new wonders of the world.

We took a tour, by bus, from Cancun. Chichen Itza is about 120 miles, one direction, from Cancun. The ruins are in the middle of the sub tropical rain forests of the Yucatan Peninsula. In 1996 it was decided, to preserve the ruins, that you can 'look but not touch'. Understanding the necessity, still this limits being able to gain... More

We booked the trip through our hotel and we were pretty happy with the price. We were picked up early from our hotel and travelled out to a Cenote for a swim first. The area was extremely crowded, so we decided to skip the swim. Lunch was at a nice restaurant, we really enjoyed the traditional food. Shopping at a... More

We booked a trip to Chichen Itza from Cancun with Best Day tours. The tour was not as good as it should have been, mainly because of the guides trying to constantly sell you stuff on the bus, not providing any valuable information about the Maya culture and the ruins, and too little time inside the archeological complex. However, Chichen... More

Top 7 on the planet what more is there to say? Lot's of local vendors selling crafts too. We did a Greyline tour with Delio. He was really good. Visit the planetarium at the nearby hotel also.

Great experience. Make sure to buy the tickets when you arrive on site instead of in the hotel or on the road, as they will be more expensive. It's very hot so bring plenty of water. Also there are restrooms only in the entrance from what I could see, so use the facilities when you arrive before starting. There are... More
