When you arrive to Chichen Itza you have a lot of expectations, for example: you may climb the main pyramid or you can tala a picture near the ChacMool over the thousand columns temple, but it's forbidden. You can't climb, you can't visit any temple. You may accept this, but is unacceptable that into the facilities there are more than... More

The Mayan pyramids are very interesting, and it's fantastic to get a tour around the area. However, bring lots of water and sun lotion - it's very hot in peak summer times with little shade!!

We stayed in Playa del Carmen, so it took about 3 hrs to get there. The tour bus also stopped at a small Mayan "village" for shopping (I would have had no problem skipping that!). Chichen Itza was amazing to see and if you are into history/culture, I highly reccomend that you see it.

If you are holidaying in Cancun or the Riviera Maya, then a visit to Chichen Itza is a must. The best time to go is in the morning as it gets very hot from around 11am. You won't regret a visit here.

Part of the Mexican holiday - and very glad I visited. The ruins were outstanding and the acoustics out of this world!
