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.

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

The pyramid itself is breathtaking, but the entire site is simply amazing. Great historical value and well preserved and cared for. I have been there twice and both times I was captivated by the site. Take plenty of water, the heat is ruthless! They don't let you climb to the top of the pyramid anymore, which is understandable given the... More

We went with a company called grey line (i think). It was well run and the guide was very well informed. Food at the local hotel was really really good (in fact it was best we had the whole time we were there), this was included in our price. I was total amazed by the acoustics of the place. The...

Interesting cultural sight. we booked a guided tour to visit Chichen Itza, but we regret that. You can do that by yourselves. The tour guide was very in hurry & he didn't give us time to take pictures. Our advice is that you can rent a car & go there by yourselves. There are places to park the car &... More

I have wanted to visit Chichen Itza for so long, and it did not disappoint. I loved walking around with my guide hearing all about the events that happened here in the past. The vendors are good, and add their touch of Mexico to the wonder. I sat for at least an hour in viewing of the main pyramid and... More

Chichen Itza is an incredible site. Its incredible the knowledge they possessed 1,500 years ago. Located about 2.5 hours from Cancun by van, it is well worth the trip. The main attraction is El Castillo, but the other structures (observatory, cenote, playing fields) are also very interesting. Ruins cannot be climbed but there is still lots of walking. Remember to... More
