One of the new wonders of the world. A part of History of Maya civilisation and culture. Very impresive.

This gorgeous, intact city, an important site in Mayan culture, is absolutely worth visiting. It's worth it to take a tour to learn more about the Mayans, the city, the temples, and the sacrifices made here. The tour guides are really quite good here, and will tell you plenty of stories about the Mayans and the temples. The temples have a lot of architectural details to them, so spend the time to look closely at everything. Try clapping in front of pyramid - you'll hear an echo that sounds like a bird chirping. It gets hot here, even in winter, so make sure you have enough water with you.

Such a beautiful place! We decided to have a tour guide (which I totally recommend). Victor was the name of our tour guide. Victor is very professional, funny, really informative and knew all the best spots for pictures. All the pictures you see were taking by Victor. You can definitely tell that tour guiding is a passion for him and not just a job.

We took a tour which I think was not a bad idea. Everything was managed and we had good service without worrying about anything. The trip started at 7 a.m from cancun and we arrived in the temple at around 4 p.m. because we had couple of stops which only the cenote was worth it. But in the temple we had a nice and passionate guide called Martin which spent more than the regular time with us to answer all our questions. The mayan culture and the story behind this temple and sacrifices was really interesting. It was not as crowded so you could even take photos with the temple which no other tourists were around and in your photos!

Went early morning while all merchants were still unpacking. Too bad you can't climb the grand pyramid to enter the tomb. We tried the clapping in front of the pyramid and the kids loved it. Explained the feathered serpent story to the children and went seeing the other great buildings.

The ruins here are epic and worth the visit. We drove in our rental care from Cancun, found parking, walked to the site, fought our way for tickets and eventually returned. This is what I'd suggest:

1] Don't drive; take a tour. The economics of a Mexican car rental favor taking a tour and paying someone else for the aggravation of the drive, freeing you from having to hunt for parking. The tour bus will take you to the door.

2] Purchasing tickets there can be a time-sucking fiasco. Have your tickets pre-bought, if you can, or bought by someone who knows how to negotiate the lines.

3] Many tours include the Ik Kil Cenote. This place is hellacool.

Disadvantages of taking a tour: you are constrained to their timetable.

Landmark itself is nice, but its not worth the money.
You can check why:
• we were told parking lot was full already in the morning … but still they let go many people to official parking lot … no one knew what was the strategy behind, but was not fair
•Price as an entrance fee is quite high for the value you got ( I really would like to see how the money are given back to the landmark…)
•Pavements for pedestrians almost nonexistant
•There were missing proper information boards
•At the main gate everything is written only in Spanish
•Entrance is totally disorganised, you are still in line for tickets, then for getting inside the areal, then someone check your temperature, another person ticket etc…. = Chaotic / complicated / disorganised. Easy online booking, with one QR code can easily resolve the problem
•Lastly, you have to pay fees on the road - more than 500MX ( x2 ) - the future road will be ready in 10years I guess. The road doesnt even meet basic safety standarts so I have no clue why it is paid when its not ready

Overall my impression is quite bad and I don’t recommend to visit this place, its not worth the energy to get there ( 2.5 hours + from Cancun) and money to pay for it.
( FYI: entrance fee is around 560MX )

Wonderful experience. Beautiful people. It’s helpful if your fluent in Spanish while shopping there, speaking it with locals is appreciated by them and they are quick to mark down prices and do a fair sale.
We had an Amazing tour guide who was super knowledgeable which made the experience so much better.

The pyramid of Chichén Itzá is the biggest calendar in the world. It was the most unforgettable place for me ever.The massive structure of Mayan culture that is very impressive to everyone who loves ancient history. The ancient Mayan history of Mexico.
