We visited through a Carnival Cruise excursion 9/19/2017. We found it interesting, and although we read about it, there is nothing like visiting. The ingenuity all around the place was pretty neat to learn about. There was no climbing after 2013... There are no restroom...More

This is considered the main attraction in Chichen Itza. Located in the center of a large square it is magnificent indeed. Unfortunately visitors are not allowed to climb the pyramid anymore.

The pyramid is impressive, but was amazed by the size of the whole site than the pyramid itself. Unfortunately, they don't allow people to go up any more. If you visit, go in the morning and go to the pyramid first.

This is the main building at the Chichen Itza site. Lots of other things to do there, and lots of people wanting to sell stuff.

Our tour was from Cozumel, so the bus started from Playa del Carmen after we got off the ferry. It took 2 hours by road to get to Chichen Itza from Playa del Carmen, which now seems faster than the Cancun road trip... More
