ReviewsLeave a review
"visiting the place is a very nice experience as it is a very beautiful place to see one of the 7 wonders of the world, the culture, the constructions and the temples are amazing as they are detailed a long time ago, the entrance is spectacular, the guide very attentive and I recommend it very much if you like the mayan culture and the ancient constrictions."
Chichen Itza is a very impressive place. Make sure to be there early, best before park opening at 8am and take your photos without many people. At around 10am it will get very crowded and parking is most likely full.
"Blown away—spectacular site with many different areas to explore. Plan to arrive as early as possible. It really filled up by midday. We opted to not hire a guide as we had written guide info from Lonely Planet. Take water with you while you walk around and wear comfortable shoes."
"You can't miss this if you go visit Cancun, Play del Carmen, or surrounding areas."
"The benefit of going early morning, especially during Covid times, is you essentially have the historic site to yourself, which is very very rare. Our guide explained everything in detail and we were able to wrap up by noon time and out by 12-01"
