Our tour arrived at the site near 8AM (which meant a really early start!) but this was a good thing because the temperatures hadn't got too hot and not many other visitors were there either. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable... More

90% of the tour was awful the guide named Avelino was a nightmare, I speak both English and Spanish and had a hard time understanding him, he kept switching between the two languages, every other word it was so confusing it gave me and the rest of my friends a headache, the one person that only spoke English did not...

We took this tour with a tour guide and it was fabulous. We enjoyed the history and the stories that our tour guide, Hermes told us about.

Many interesting buildings and history at this site. Unlike many of the ruins in the Yucatan, these are marvels and well preserved and well built. We had a guided tour so learned a lot about the different people that had lived here and the differences. Was well worth the drive out from Playacar. Highly recommend.

What can you say but CHICHEN ITZA! Everybody is there and it's to be expected. Make sure you are well hydrated. Don't even attempt to climb El Castillo

The site is incredible as you will read and see from others. It is hot and sunny as others will atest. What I will advise is to go early in the say (less heat and tourist) and stop at the information booth at the car park or at the highway off ramp from Vallodiad (sp?)....you can get free information but...

Very interesting place to go. So much history! The entrance getting in is very congested once inside you can actually breathe. It is very hot. Take lots of water and a hat!

Chichen Itza is a long way from anywhere. You are no longer able to go up on or into much at all. I came away with some nice pictures, but there are plenty more online, including some nice aerial shots. 20/20 hindsight, I could have saved a long.... Bus ride, with a little online reading and photo searching. Come to... More
