The trip to Chichen Itza is not a quick one, unless of course you are staying locally so be prepared to spend the whole day travelling. We left our resort around 9:30am, we returned shortly after 7pm, we stopped for lunch at a local crafts/jewellery shop which had an amazing restaurant, however you do feel pressured to buy something while...

My husband were staying at a resort in Cancun for a family wedding. Most of the people we travelled with stayed at the resort the whole time but I would have been disappointed to come to this area of the world and not see this amazing site. It was well worth the time!

Glad we visited. Be prepared for hot and lots of vendors trying to sell you items. This is a must do. Try to get there earlier in the day.

What an amazing place, really fascinating to look at and learn the history. So cool to imagine what it was like in ancient times. It is ridiculously hot there probably the hottest place I've ever been so be prepared. Only thing that let it down was the people shouting out to you trying to sell things.. kind of took away...

It was a long trip but it was well worth it. We had a local tour guide and he was amazing and very knowledgeable. It was very humid and a hot day in April. Comfortable shoes and a hat is a must. There are a lot of vendors selling souvenirs and their prices are more reasonable than The stores at... More

My husband and I visited 5 archeological sites during our recent trip to Mexico. This was my least favorite. While the ruins are truly awesome and the infrastructure well up to processing thousands of tourists efficiently, it is depressingly commercialized. You cannot even view the ruins in peace. Tables of people loudly and continuously hawking their wares surround all structures... More

Chichen Itza is our principle purpose of this Mexico trip to visit the 7th New WOW on our list. Left Merida early to beat the crowd & get ourselves more private tour in a cooler morning. This largest city of pre-Columbian Maya civilization is well worth a visit. The Pyramid of Kukulcan is the most famous landmark & well preserved... More

Incredible place. Guided tour by Jamie who gave us much more info than you get just wandering on your own. So glad we went. Hats, sunglasses and water are essential.

Recommend getting a guide. to tour the area. Our guide and his 7 year old son took us through the various historical and architectural details of the Mayans and Chichen Itza. As impressive as the pyramid was the ball court and the game that was played there ending in the death of the winning captain. Our guided tour of 3... More
