After a long bus-ride from Cancun, we were all excited to arrive. My mother and I chose not to follow the tour guide, because we wanted to explore on our own. It was such an incredible day. Pictures can't do justice to the size and scale of Kukulcan. When I first saw it, my jaw dropped. My first thought was,... More

The preservation of this pyramid is astounding. That a beautiful structure this size is still standing having been built in the 5th century is a testimonial to the skill and intelligence of the Mayan people.

My girlfriends and I went to Chichen Itza as part of our girls getaway and were in complete awe of such a wonderful place. We actually booked the trip from the resort we were staying at which was cheaper than booking thru our travel agent. We left our resort at 7am on a Sunday and although it was about a... More

When we in GB were living in Mud huts the Mayan people were constructing huge structures that even today cannot be explained for their advanced meanings and belief that the heavens have control over our lives. It has taken well over another thousand years for us to be able to put into perspective what the Mayans achieved. The Mixican people... More

Get a good guide and trip to visit here, I wouldn't rec. doing it on the cheap as some taxi drivers offer you such trips, as the info. that a good guide can tell you makes all this more fascinating and real. Does get busy, but well worth the trip.

This is an impressive building, it showcases the wisdom of the Mayan people of this city. This is a purpose for every stone placed, purpose for the position of the building itself. Everything was well thought out and calculated with precision, its amazing. Go, I recommend it, listen the tour guide and see for yourself. Reading about it and hearing... More

We stayed in the Cancun resort area this past February. Although day trips seem long and tedious, they are definitely worth it. Even in February the weather was hot and muggy. Be sure to bring a hat and sun screen as there is little shade around the pyramid itself! Most shade is occupied by the local vendors. Whatever you do,... More
