Absolutely beautiful but no climbing and very commercialized.

This was the first of our three area visits (Chichen Itza, Chacchoben, Cahal Pech). Chichen Itza is by far the largest of the three and most beautiful with its engravings and... read more

This was the first of our three area visits (Chichen Itza, Chacchoben, Cahal Pech). Chichen Itza is by far the largest of the three and most beautiful with its engravings and totems but you have virtually no access to climb or enter anything. You also have to walk through a corridor of venders to get to the site. It's very... More

This place was pretty cool to see in person. So many people flock here to see we didn't use a tourist guide so didn't get much of the history but we did everything at our own pace. Vendors galore! Stands and tables with merchandise as far as you can see, but you can get really cool souvenirs, they speak English... More

Easy drive from Cancun using tollway. Much better renting a car and driving yourself, can get there early before crowds. Many vendors selling crafts, if you look there are two that are quality artists and worth buying from.

Everyone visits Chichen Itza, the most famous of all the Mayan sites. Unfortunately they all seem to choose the same day, so try to get there before 10.0 a.m. if you can. We managed that and could walk the site relatively easily for an hour before the hordes appeared. The main pyramid is a site to behold but you are... More

The hotel is uniquely designed, it's a pyramid. The pool goes around the resort like a lazy river. On our last day they let us released the turtles into the water.

It is impressive. The light and sound show at night is really beautiful. Do not miss it. We loved the ipod with the voice tour included in the night show

I took a tour with four friends. We where in. Cancun and everyone said it's a must see. It was a very long tour, it took 12 hours from the time we boarded the bus until we returned to the hotel in Cancun. We made several stops, including lunch and some shopping there and back. The ruins are impressive and... More

Our last site at the end of a 14 day tour across Mexico. They are all different and impressive in their own way but Chichen Itza is one of the biggest and due to its proximity to Cancun and accessibility to Cruise Ships it is one of the most popular and busy. It is worth getting here early to beat... More

That was one of the best trips in my life! Mostly, because that was the first trip together with my boyfriend (now husband). He didn't propose me there, but at Chichen Itza I saw him the way I've never seen before. And I'm grateful to God he helped us do not miss our bus!) I'd like to say a big... More

We stayed in Playa del Carmen and did a day tour to Chichen Itza (Tierra Maya Tours). A bus picked us up at a meeting point in the early morning. We did several stops and changed busses 3 times. At each stop, more people and bigger busses were used. The whole process of collecting people took two hours which was... More
