Famous archeological site on the Mexican peninsula. It was worth the visit and to learn about the history of the Mayans and see the majestic structures.nI recommend a private tour if possible so you can go at your own pace. There's not much cover at the site so it can get quite sweltering on a sunny day. Bring a hat or an umbrella.nThere are many locals trying to sell you trinkets. Definitely bargain.
The Mayan temples. Looking at one of the greatest civilizations accomplishment through the building of these temples has been the highlight of my experience here in Mexico. The historical context, visiting the temples, and walking on the grounds where these and genius amazing warrior people lived worshiped and created these amazing monuments was just an exquisite educational experience.
The site itself was magnificent and definitely worth the trip. Unfortunately the site was also plagued by vendors constantly calling for you to buy their cheap products. Definitely book a cultural/historic tour if visiting as this definitely enriched the experience.
The experience was amazing, the place is beautiful and so big, wear some comfy snickers for your visit, don’t forget to bring your own bottle of water, inside you can buy something to drink but is too expensive. Bring a hat and sunscreen as is too sunny.nnI loved the place but I couldn’t enjoy 100% as there are too many sellers on the side of the road and inside the archaeological zone as well.
Truly amazing. One of the 7 New Wonders of the World ud83cudf0e So, to gain access you can pay $571 Pecos or $400 using a credit card and $87 Pecos in cash. Get ready for the street vendors from the time you arrive until you leave. They sell the same things so if you plan to buy be patient you'll see the same thing and depending on your negotiating skills you might knock off $20 more. Just say no if you don't want to buy. The area is well maintained. We didn't use a tour guide. Trust me there's over 50 tour guides at the entrance. The drive from Cancun to Chichu00e9n Itza is about 2hrs 30 minutes. There's two tolls and you pay $327 Pecos and $100 Pecos. I recommend the toll road as it cuts 45 minutes from the drive and the road is well paved. There's a lot of construction so get ready for stops and trucks jumping onto the road. We make the round trip with a full tank of gas.
Amazing. We had a great tour guide who explained many things at the site, and that is something I recommend, getting a good tour guide. It was hotter there than Cancun and I understand that is pretty common. So be aware, bring plenty of water and sunscreen, and a hat is a good idea.
A great Mayan temple site to visit with a tour guide. Quite touristic but the site is big so we don't really feel the crowd.nAmongst the 7 new wonders of the world, it must be visited.
You have to go with a tour guide to really appreciate the history of this place. It’s one of the new wonders of the world and it’s definitely worth a visit. The natural sound system was amazing, plus the tour guide gives you the reason why it’s considered to be a wonder of the world and it’s just awesome! Lots of vendors but we were in a tour group so it’s easier not to get distracted by them. Hats/umbrellas are recommended, thankfully the tour provided umbrellas. The structures are related to each other and we learned a lot about the history of this place. Highly recommended!
One of the biggest city of the Mayan this place is one of the best historical landmarks to see in Mexico. There is a special sound you can hear from the pyramid if you clap your hand standing at the bottom. It’s very mystical and wonderful to experience the culture of the ancient Mayans.
Gorgeous place and beautiful history. Highly suggested to hire a tour guide to learn more about the culture and how the Mayans did things. Bring water, a hat or umbrella and comfortable shoes.
Awesome experience!! Beautiful Ruins! Knowledgeable tour guides. Must see! Come rain or shine, same pleasant experience. Loved it!
Chichu00e9n Itzu00e1 was amazing. I had wanted to visit for years and finally made the trip. I stayed in the area the night before going and was able to enter the park early. It was really nice to beat the crowds and tours. I was able to walk around the entire area and take pictures without anyone else in them. The main pyramid was fantastic and the ball court was too.nnOne thing that I didnu2019t really like was the number of vendors inside. And they were relentless in calling out to you to come and buy something from them. And they had these noise makers that were supposed to sound like animals that they all kept blowing into. It was a little much.nnI highly recommend making the trek and getting there early. It takes about 2 to 3 hours to explore the park. If you arrive at 8 am when they open you can pretty much on your way out by the time the big tours and buses arrive
