Visited chichen itza this past week as part of a tour out of playacar. Chichen itza is a very impressive site. Our tour had a guide for part of our time there and then time look around alone. I would recommend to anyone. Can't climb the pyramids anymore but are still able to get right up to all the buildings... More

Rented a van and brought a group of seven friends from Playa del Carmen for the day. Hired a guide, Jesus, who did a fabulous job showing us the site and describing the history and about Mayan culture. Well worth the extra money and overall was a great experience!

I have no doubt why this place is part of the world UNESCO heritage since I feel that I have stepped on a different part of Mexico. Deep in its luscious jungle is the Mayan pyramid and underneath this proud building are secrets to a civilization that have passed. I love the culture and the mystery that surrounds the whole...

You must see Chichen Itza. It's an incredible archeological site, unlike most any place on Earth. You have to see it someday. However, the experience is less than wonderful. The crowds were overwhelming with a one hour line for tickets. We arrived early, just as all the guidebooks had instructed, but still had a long wait. There are hundreds of... More

The entire Chichen-itza complex is AMAZING. The central pyramid is in really good shape and it is just WONDERFUL. The best way to enjoy it is with a private guide which are not very expensive.

We hired a private guide through our hotel, Mayaland, and it was well worth it. We had two hours of fascinating discussion of Mayan culture. Just the idea that the jungle completely reclaimed this space when it was uncovered in the early 20th century. Get there early because it is crowded and hot. Ticketing takes a long time because the... More

We went with a tour company through our hotel and it certainly made it easier as we never had to stand in line. The ruins are pretty impressive and our guide gave us a lot of background information on the Mayan culture. The pyramid is huge and there are many other ruins to visit in the grounds of the ancient... More
