We have always wanted to visit Chichen Itza and it did not disappoint. But I would not return because it is such a tourist trap. The ruins are beautiful and well preserved. I was a little disappointed that you could not climb the ruins but I totally understand due to the amount of foot traffic. Ek Balam ruins are near by if you really want to scramble up a pyramid(the tallest in the Mayan world) for the view. Chichen is also the first Maya ruins we have visited where they allow the vendors inside the park and ruins. That is a check in the "against" column.
