We stayed in Cancun (awful) and arranged a private tour for just the two of us in a quality car for the 200km trip to Chichen Itza. Our driver/guide said he would pick us up at 8am to get to the site before the tour...More
Very interesting . Much history is here. I had a guide who explained to us the way in which they lived and organizau old maiasi. Deserve to be seen and recommend not to go without a guide to ensure that you do not understand much.
First experienced this architectural wonder in 2005 when you could climb it and enter into a small chamber at the top. While that's no longer a possibility, it still is amazing. Definitely go and hire a guide to take you around.
The age, history and rituals of this great site gives you a peek into the past. The Myan culture Lewis started any tourist about the sophistication of these people in astronomy and mathematics. The area also gives you a glimpse into the day-to-day lives of...More
This is the main pyramid of the entire complex. Right in the center. When I first visited this site many years ago, you could climb up, now you can't. Worth checking out from all perspective and frankly worth having a guide explain to you the...More
The Wow factor? The feeling that you are in another space and time. It was like turning back the pages of history and experiencing the ancient times when the Mayas were in their greatest heights of achievement in architecture. It is highly recommended for every...More

Our tour was from Cozumel, so the bus started from Playa del Carmen after we got off the ferry. It took 2 hours by road to get to Chichen Itza from Playa del Carmen, which now seems faster than the Cancun road trip.
Unfortunately, we were not in a position to see how the bus driver got us out of Playa del Carmen, or onto the highways, but we were on what appeared to be on brand new highways shortly after leaving the town. I tried to find a map or link to help you, but everything online appears to be out of date.
We timed the drive each way and it was a solid 2 hours, even with a lot of rain each way, but not longer. Also, there wasn't much traffic after leaving the coastline. Hope this helps.

Kukulcan is the Maya word fir the puramid, the feathered serpent, who returns each equinox. There is no food within the grounds of Chichen itza. The closest cenote is cenote Sagrade (sacred cenote) it is not the most impressive" but there is a very sacred ambience and it is worth visiting for that reason and the proximity to the pyramid. Cenote x-cajum is really great and you can swim in it (you cannot swim in sagrada) lmk if you need other info
