What is the best day of the week to go see Chichen Itza?

We have flexibility as to what day we go. Is there one day that tends to be less crowded or for which there is less traffic on the roads? (We will be renting a car and driving ourselves.)

Sunday there are less cruise ships in port, so there tend to be less bus tours to CI. But it is always best to be there early, say 8AM. Cooler and almost no people.

I read somewhere not to go on Sundays because the entrance fees to the ruins are discounted on Sundays and it is too crowded. Wrong?

I thought Sundays were free, but I could have heard wrong. But even when it was crowded, it is so big that you won't notice it.
