The visible part (pyramid) is very impressive, especially when you learn mathematical and astronomical facts behind it. And there is another pyramid inside and one more inside the second pyramid. This structure showcases Mayan sophisticated calendar system. Really a wonder for you to enjoy.

How did they do this? Both a calendar and sound machine that creates the same sound as the ancient bird they admire. I'm in awe.
Don't miss this "wonder of the world." Make sure to take a guided tour so you learn all the details.
The new road makes the trip there from Playa Del Carmen are Cancun much faster.
Wear great shoes, sunscreen and a hat. Hydrate! And Learn!

Undisputed the best conserved pre-Hispanic city in Yucatan, you can’t miss visiting Chichen Itza, it’s 2 hours’ drive from Playa del Carmen and 2 hours guided visit, it means that all in all, you have to plan a full day to visit the ruins.
The best option is to rent a car, drive the highway and once there book a tour guide just for you and your friends, car + petrol+ highway tool + park entrance + guide, for 2 persons will be around 250 USD. There are some restaurant options nearby if you eat there add another 50/70 USD (per 2 people).

A great historical structure depicting Mayan culture based on Sun and other planets . There are 3 structure one covering another . The RE are 2 doors on 2 sides of external structure which leads you to second structure, the inner most structure was not reached . Now no tourist is allowed to climb the structure. The human sacrifices were done in designated place .

Amazing that we can see the hieroglyphics after all this time. The pyramids are a must see if interested in history of the Mayans.
