Good historic feeling, many different pyramids and buildings. Crowdy after 1pm, come before 11. Sales people all over (-). 2,5h from Cancun in a cab. 3000 pesos day with a cab.

A wonder that was under jungle 200 years ago.a must must see, the engineering precision to get the clap echo (the tour will explain) is mind boggling considering what is involved to get it to work. Visit the cenotes, walk round the ruins. Get there early as it closes at 4. By the your gifts there, instead of where your... More

When you visit the chichen itza ruins try to get a tour that way they will give you the explanation of the place. They don't let you get on top of the pyramid because of preservation. It's a beautiful place to visit.

My family and I visited a number of different Mayan sites in the Yucatan. This was by far the most intact site. It was by far the most visited and crowded site. Even with the crowds I recommend seeing the site. There is a cost for parking, if you drive.

What can I add; we visited here as a part of a three-day inland road trip from Cancun. Most people visit this place as a day trip, but we like to drive ourselves which allows us to set our own pace and stops (side note: I've visited 30+ countries and this area is the easiest to navigate in my own...

So much to learn about this ancient place. We were very glad we decided to rent a car (make sure you do your research, check/take pics of the car inside and outside, learn some Spanish & bargain bc they do want to get as much money they can from you, for instance, they charged us another $30USD extra for some...

Absolutely surreal experience with so much history. It's a fairly large area do was not overly crowded. We went with a tour guide which I would highly suggest to get the specific history on each area. A must see!

Not to be missed. Our coach journey took 2.5 hours from Cozumel, then lunch at the site and then about 2.5 hours in Chichen Itza. We bought a guide with map, left the tour party and did it ourselves. We managed to see everything but would definitely return if in that part of the world again. The vendors don't bother... More

We were staying at the Grand Palladium Colonial Resort and decided to take a tour for a day. We chose the Myan Ruins at Chichen Itza. We booked with Cancun Passion tour company and it was a great tour. Our driver Jose was very safe and courteous, our aid on the bus Albeto was nice and our guides Raul and... More
