the only place i have seen a statue of chacmool in situ in chichen itza. if you are too close to the temple you can miss it so go close. supposed to be a sacrificial altar it is a little creepy. walk around as you may get to see more at the back as the place is nice and big.... More

If you take a tour, they usually only talk to you in front of this temple, but make sure you walk around to the right and go behind to see the rest. It's a huge temple and worth the stroll in the trees to see the rest.

It's always great to see the great statue of Chac Mool laying at the top of the temple displaying such prominence. Take your time to visit around the whole temple. The back side of the temple was not opened to the public on our last visit in 2012.

Interesting cultural site!! The cultural importance of this and all the buildings plus the preservation is impressive at Chichen Itza ... the temple of the warriors is no exception.

We visited Chechen Itza in Jan 2105 and it was almost unbelievable in the history and magnitude of the site! The temple of the warriors was just a part of the entire site but it was magnificent.

I love all the historical articrafts, and museums, so for me it was delightful. And the narration of the guide was very interesting. It is a part of the Chichen Itza ruins. You pay for the general entrance to Chechen Itza I guess, not separately for each temple. We purchased a day tour, so the entrance fee was included.

A fabulous site- stunning and breath-taking. Climb to the top if you can- not for the faint-hearted, or in fact anyone with a heart condition! But go privately- any "organised tour" will likely stop at an "authentic" Mayan village- don;t be fooled- it is far from authentic and frankly a waste of time and wholly detracts from Cichen Itza itself...

I went to two other ruin sites during my Riviera Maya tour (Tulum and San Gervasio (Cozumel) ) and this is the best one yet. Although is located 3 hours away from Cancun and 4 hours from most other places in the Riviera Maya, it is worth the trip. Most tour companies include stops in the colonial town of Valladolid...

These Mayan ruins are part of the Chichen Itza archaeological site. This temple sits at one end of the opening that encompasses the Chichen Itza site. Each of the pillars were reported to be representative of a warrior. These rows of pillars are impressive even in their current state of ruin. At one time these pillars held up a roof... More
