While this is a bit a drive from Cancún, it is worth it. Get there early, the crowds and parking get busy late morning. Too bad you can’t climb to the top of the pyramid any more. We loved our visit.

I understand that for many people, Chichen Itza is a bucket-list destination. It also helps that it's a reasonable distance from the major tourist areas in and around Cancun. But really, if you are genuinely interested in experiencing an important Maya city, go elsewhere. Most...More
