Worth the trip!
Nov 2021 • Friends
If you are interested in history, this place is for you. First piece of advice is to use a guide. We learned so much from the guide that was not on the self guided tour app we downloaded.
Only two semi-negative comments. First, why does a World Heritage site allow all the vendors? Gotta be hundreds of booths selling the same garbage and some are relentless in their efforts to get you to buy something. Second, again for a World Heritage site, it could use some TLC.
Accepting the 2 negatives, the visit is well worth both your time and money. Unbelievable how the Mayans were able to build things that have lasted 1500 years, but todays society tears anything down that is over 50 years old. It will be hot and it will get crowded. Try to arrive as early as possible to avoid both.

Walking with the Mayans
Nov 2021 • Family
Completely impressive as this archaeological zone is one of the new wonders of the world.The walk is very long and is not suitable for those who are not used to exercising. The whole family has a lot of fun in the sun.

A very impressive place. Full of history, great on pictures. Just beware of local souvenir sellers trying to scam you. Happened to me with one of the souvenirs. Just check a few stalls before making a purchase.

Beautiful UNESCO site
Dec 2020
Went there Dec 2019, before the pandemic.
It was a lot of walking in the heat, make sure you have plenty of water and comfortable shoes. Definitely worth visiting, but I wish that it was a bit more interactive, some info boards were slightly damaged and to be honest I don’t think they were good enough.
Still, it is a must when visiting this area of Mexico!

A must see
Oct 2021
This was an amazing sight to see. I recommend an umbrella, sunscreen lots of water and a hat as it is super hot there with hardly any shade. It is so beautiful to see...but the heat is incredible. Pace yourself.

Must See!
Aug 2021
Yes, this is a major tourist destination, but for good reason! Don't miss it! I visited on my own, without much advanced planning or any tour guide. It was incredibly hot, and very crowded with tourists and vendors everywhere. Even so, I had an amazing time, was dazzled by the iconic architecture, and can't wait to visit again! Of course it's best to go EARLY in the day, to minimize both the heat and the crowds, but if you go in prepared to deal with these things, and just stay focused on the amazing sights in front of you, you will not be disappointed.

Diego - best tour guide
Sep 2021
Got tickets while en route from the Cozumel ferry. We were fortunate to have a private car and driver (Viator tours - George). Walked right to the ticket counter without waiting in the long line. I would recommend getting tickets prior to your arrival unless you enjoy waiting in long lines. George knew the perfect tour guide for our family - Diego. Diego is a 7th generation Mayan. He was so knowledgeable of the history and had stories passed down through generations. We were so impressed. Once there we understood why this is one of the seven wonders of the world. Truly magical.

Disappointing
Oct 2021 • Couples
It's a shame that such a historic site is ruined by poor management decision. Vendors will pester you the entire time to buy their mass produced junk they're presenting as authentic Mayan "art". The price of admission is clearly not going towards improving the grounds. For a place that's estimated to have over 2 million visitors, you would expect they would be able to make it a nicer place to visit.
