Impressive, mostly because of the stories about Maya. All the history, the myths, the mysteries around Maya history, the astronomical facts, the design... That's what makes CHitzen Itza impressive. The temple itself was smaller than expected and not particulair pretty... But everything with the sounds, the echos'the sun and the calander made this absolutely worthwhile.

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.
