It is a historical place but you are not allowed to climb it. Need a guide to explain. In a hot day take plenty to drink. Book tour through your hotel to be safe.

We got to hike up the stairs to the top. It was a great view. But recommend you don't go up if you have a fear of heights, as the stairs are quite steep going back down

This is the main building at the Chichen Itza site. Lots of other things to do there, and lots of people wanting to sell stuff.
