We have just come back from Mexico, we stayed at the Beloved Hotel (Amazing), who arranged for us to visit Chichen Itza with Seasons Tours. The tour was for a whole day, we were picked up by Marco who took us to Chichen Itza and introduced us to the tour guide. After an hour or so of viewing the ruins,... More

I was very excited about visting the Mayan ruins. A step back in time. Awesome. Make sure you wear a hat, sunglasses and gym shoes( lace up w/socks, quite dusty). Worth every hour spent on the tour bus (3 hrs. from Playa). Highly recommended.

This is very unusual place. If you enjoy history or you have interest in the Mayans,you have to see it. We went from Cancun with Gomexico tour operators and that was 190 usd for our family of 4,hassle free and you get lunch,stop at Villadolid, visit Mayan village and get taken to a cenote on a way back,is not bad...

I took the ADO bus from Cancun Centro at 8:45am, and arrived at Chichen Itza at 12 noon. Price was $236MX. Air conditioned with a movie playing, comfortable seats. Lineup to get tickets was long yet moved fairly quickly. Entry fee is $204MX. Bathrooms are towards the entrance although there are a couple inside the site as well. Lots of... More

My husband and I decided to rent a car. We suggest you buy a tour. We finally ended up paying more than with the deluxe tour they offered us. Adding up: rental, gas, tolls (way expensive), lunch, entrences to the ruins. It was 300. Deluxe is 109 per person. Great to see this wonder tough

Chichen-Itza is absolutely worth going to, it is beautiful and spectacular. Quite breathtaking. You only need about 2 hours on the site, but I can imagine it being quite hideous full of tourists (and endless traders trying to sell you crap). We stayed nearby in Valladolid which is a 45 minute drive. We got there at 7:55am and were the... More

On a day trip arranged through Best Day and handled by Xcaret, I had one of the most amazing experiences of my life: I finally saw Chichen Itza. Our tour guide through Xcaret was Juan Jose... You want this guy as your Chichen Itza tour guide. He is Mayan and spent days in his childhood climbing up El Castillo, the... More

Make no mistake about it...the ruins of Chichén Itzá are indeed impressive, but visiting Chichén Itzá leaves a sour taste in your mouth. Yes, the pyramid is very nice, so are the surrounding structures around, but the place is overrun with tourists (yes, we were obviously contributing to that), but more importantly, everything is cordoned off, you cannot really truly...

Seemed like forever to get there, Maybe I took the wrong bus but it seemed like we stopped at every stop and took the old road ? Once we got there it was Magical, unlike you see in pictures or even on TV. This place is huge, bring plenty of water, lots of walking, lots of vendors.I think we took... More
