I was fairly surprised at the manageable crowds, and although it is a hefty drive from Tulum area, I would definitely suggest hammering the trip out in a single day. Also, there are some great cenotes fairly nearby.

I have to be honest, we were here about 6 years ago and didn't actually plan on visiting the ruins again. We actually went to go to the town for chicken on the grill (AMAZING) and then the Il Kil cenote. They have done a lot of road work since we were last there and we ended up at the... More

The Temple of Kukulkan is, I guess, the centrepiece of the ancient site of Chichen Itza on the Yucatán Peninsula in Mexico. You'll recognise it - it's in all the photographs, place mats and tourist brochures. It's breathtaking - like the pyramids at Giza in Egypt. Daily bus tours are at least available from Cancun and Playa del Carmen (we... More

This is a building full of interesting facts and stories. If your guide is competent he/she will show you tricks like the sound if an eagle ir how to see the snake all year round :)

Amazing historical site, well worth the 12hr day. Lots of large iguanas around the site and plenty of time alone to explore, highly recommend.

This is the pyramid everyone will think of when you mention Chichen Itza/ It is in very good condition and the main feature of the site. Very impressive and well worth visiting chichen itza for. You are not allowed to climb it.

This honestly was quite the site when I was at Chichen Itza. It's a shame that they won't allow people to walk up the stairs like the way they used to.

This is only one part of this incredible temple complex, but it is the focal point and in itself really quite amazing. It is deservedly a wonder of the New World, so do take the time to appreciate it. PS: it's a Temple, not a pyramid.
