Give this place a 3.5 stars. This structures of the pyramids are amazing. To build something on primitive tools are something. The reasons behind the slight average rating is I didn't feel like I was taking back in time when I went to a local tour guide. Most of the time he was talking about something else that wasn't related... More

Our trip was with George, through TUI (Thompson). He was the best facilitator of a trip I've ever had the pleasure of travelling with. His enthusiasm, knowledge and humor made the experience for us. The pyramid and temples were fantastic, the history of science and culture was immense. With this particular trip we also swam in a cenote, which was... More

Booked through Maya tours which were way cheaper than the holiday company we went with. Really good daybut very long, 12 hour trip with 6 hours of it spent travelling. We were a small group with a really good guide who was very knowledgeable and entertaining. We went in November and it was uncomfortably hot and humid as little to... More

Definitely get here at/before opening (8am) to explore the ruins and get some awesome pictures before the hordes arrive by the busloads. We were done exploring before noon when it started to get really hot and crowded. Also definitely hire a guide to learn more about the history of the ruins and the mayan culture! You can hire both english... More

Book through Thompson, very early pickup. Arrived around 10.30am and it was pretty quiet. Our tour guide, Victor, explained everything there was to know about Chichen Itza. I thoroughly enjoyed my visit, and wish my history lessons at school were as good as this.

We booked the tour through xcaret. It was a tad expensive but we got a great guide Jesus'. He was very knowledgeable and took great care of us. Chichen itza is one of the seven wonders of the world and visiting it we learned a great deal about the Mayan culture. The heat is very high make sure to drink... More

Whilst it was a little bit chaotic at the entrance and the avenue to the site was filled with stalls selling "junk", coming out into the main site was amazing. We had a guide but each guide appears to tell a different history. Although interesting, I just wanted to wander around - genuine away and wonder. I'm not surprised that... More

The site is beautiful and if you are into this sort of things it's really fascinating. If you are travelling solo you can ask one of the guides to gather a group and do a guided tour (price for the guide is 650 pesos) but make sure you get there as early as you can. Arrived there at 9 am,... More

In 2008 I visited Mexico for my birthday. Spent 4 days, Chichen Iza was my only excursion. It takes a hike to get there from Cancun. This is a whole day excursion which includes a visit to a maya village near by and lunch. This place is amazing, rich with history.
