Chichen Itza, a hybrid Maya/Toltec site, is several hours away from Cancun. Travellers staying in other parts of the Yucatecan peninsula make a point of getting there at opening,so we can enjoy the park before the hordes from Cancun arrive at 11:00 or so and ruin it. If you are serious about really appreciating this unique site, spend a night... More

They should allow visitors to go in so we can feel the place. What a great site - brings out respect for the culture spontaneously.

Great place to visit. Just be prepared for the long drive and I would recommend taking a private tour with about 15 people than the tour bus. We got there early than they did and left before they did. It seemed like a big cluster funk when they arrived and they had to pass out tickets to them and such.

This temple resides in the main park of Chichen Itza. You don't need a tour guide. The park is riddle with info. A must see!!

We went in this tour with Thompson from our hotel and it was great, the guides and team were informative but not boring, the place and temples are impressive. It was an early start and a 2 hour drive, from Akumel, longer from Cancun. But we got there before the crowds, but unfortunately not before the sellers of which there... More

We left early in the day and took a tour bus to Chichen Itza, which was my main reason for wanting to go to Cancun. The site was truly awe inspiring, the history of the Mayan people comes alive. We had a good tour guide who gave us plenty of time to look around, take pictures and ask questions. We... More

Very impressive temple. Unfortunately over run by vendors trying to sell their "stuff" - Using a guided tour is the best option as they will add a lot of information to the experience

Chichen Itza, where the Temple of the Warriors is located, is a hybrid Toltec/Maya site near the charming colonial town of Valladolid. To really appreciate the site, you need to get there well before the hordes arrive on tour buses from Cancun!

The site is impressive in size. Seeing it loom large over you just takes your breath away. An educational and emotional trip. The heat is oppressive and you must be prepared and stay hydrated, but the discomfort is well worth it.
