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

What a site! In face value this might not look impressive. However i highly recommend you see Chichen Itza with a tour. This way you will get all the history and you will be taken back to the moment of time. LOVED THE clapping echoing affect

Due to wear and tear, much of the ruins are roped off but the structures are still amazing to see, especially the ball court. It gets very hot walking around there with little shade, so make sure you are appropriately dressed and have plenty of water. I am not a big ruins person, it is definitely impressive to see and...

We have been there 4 times already and each time just makes you stand in amazement. If you get the chance, go visit at night and see the lazer light show. Great place.

truly amazing place, lots of Sun, tropical vegetation and mauna history. I liked most the observatory and the great pyramid. Nice for couples, solo travel and basically everyone. Totally worth the time spent. Don't forget the cenote on the way back.

We had an amazing thanksgiving trip to Mexico and Chichen Itza was the highlight of our trip. It was mesmerizing to see the amazing architecture and craftsmanship of the ancient Mayan people. Also our amazing guide gave us a great insight into the Mayan culture and rituals and how their society functioned. Highly recommended!
