nice, but not our favourite; too many souvenir boots
Aug 2021
First of all : come early! To avoid the crowds. We came by rental car from Valladolid and were able to be there at the opening at 8:00 a.m. It was already full of people and we were there off season (August). From 9:30 on tour busses from the coast start coming and then it becomes unbearable although it's a very large area, As a non Mexican you have to pay two different entry fees and have to go to another teller for the second payment. Why so complicate? We had to pay two different packages often, but at least it was at the same place. What's really a big MINUS are the hundreds of souvenir boots along all the ways in the area and all of them fight with slogans 'only one dollar' or 'my stuff is cheaper than his' and probably all is imported anyway. On any other place you can get souvenirs around the entrance but the site is free for culture only. We did prefer Edzna and Ek Balam to Chichen Itza.

Great place to see in person
Sep 2021
I love seeing the wonders of the world. So seeing Chichen Itza in person is a privilege for me. Its astonishing to see especially if you have a guide explaining the sites for you. I didn't like the places we went afterwards tho. If you want to go here, just go to chichen itza and a cenote and youre set. The other tours will be the whole day which is a waste for me. Thanks.

One of the Seven Wonders

We did the Chichen Itza, Valladolid, and cenote tour. Our guide was Freddy and driver Daniel. They took great care of us!

Take time to walk through “old Chichen” before exploring the “new” Chichen Itza. A guide makes all the difference in understanding what you are viewing.

Tons of vendors everywhere—which was a bit distracting.

Also, a number of mask enforcing folks closer to the big structures.

Have fun with the acoustics near the pyramid and in the game court.

Amazing experience
Oct 2020 • Couples
We went with our tour group towards the end of the day and man am I glad we did. We had the place almost to our selves and made some very good deals with the vendors. We walked the grounds exploring the ruins and we even got pictures with nobody in the background this was a once and a lifetime opportunity.

The local pyramid
Oct 2020 • Family
So much of history stuffed in this place. I came a while back and had climbed the relic. Try to avoid the hottest of all days to visit this monument.

Amazing history even with no guide
Aug 2021
Chichen Itza was an incredible experience for those who love history and culture. The monuments are well-preserved and beautiful and it provides a great sense of the Mayan culture. I would strongly recommend reading up about the site and the history before you go so that you can appreciate what you see. On site there are many guides offering their services but unless you really like listening to tour guides, skip the guide, and download an app with a self-guided tour. We used the app "Chichen Itza" and for $7 had plenty of information without an overload. The day involved lots of walking so prepare for the weather and bring plenty of water and snacks. There is a restaurant and bathrooms at the entrance but once you get going you will not want to walk all the way back if you need something. The bathrooms are not great but will meet your needs and are reasonably clean. We spent about 4 hours there with plenty of time for sitting and resting. The earlier in the day you go the better it is! We planned to eat at the nearby city of Vallolidad which gave more options than the restaurant at Chichen Itza.

A must see that should be better
Aug 2021
A spectacular historical experience partially degraded by present realities. Take away the high entry price, poor management and aggressive vendors that fill the place inside and out and only then will you see the place with the dignity it demands. But nothing will improve anytime soon, so might as well see it while you are alive.

A must see if you're in Cancun/area
Aug 2021
Great experience! I didn't do a tour or anything like that, just rented a car (20 bucks a day) and went myself instead of paying $144 bucks for a 'package deal'. Total cost for entry was like like $35USD. So if you're balling on a budget, or have a few people with you even more so, just do it this way. (Plus you can always linger around someone elses tour lol)

One of my goals is to see all the 'Wonders' of the world and im happy to mark this one off my list and hear the amazing construction of the Quetzalcoatl call in the pyraamid. Not to mention seeing the other surrounding structures.
