If you plan on going, you can go with a group or by yourself. If you go by yourself, note that you need TWO TICKETS to enter the grounds. One is a small white card, the other is a larger ticket. Santiago stopped us before we went in to let us know, as he happened to be a guide. We decided to tour with him and it was worth it. It was like having a Chichen Itza history professor, walking you through a lecture while you admire the sights. After studying archaeology in California, he moved to Mexico 30 years ago to do these tours. He truly loved the history and culture. Anyone can see the beauty in the sights, but to understand them, you should either do your research ahead of time or get a walking guide there.
