Anyone planning a visit to the Yucatan Peninsula region of Mexico should not miss a trip to Chichen Itza. No matter how many photos you may have already seen of the famous "El Castillo" pyramid that lies in the center, there is nothing like the...More

Before you buy one of those pricey excursions. Go to the Ado bus website and see if a bus leaves from close to your hotel. Definitely get a guide you need the history. Roundtrip from Tulum 2.5 hours 476 pesos $24 USD Entrance was under...More

Imagine hordes of people congregating on the lawns between the great pyramid or any of the other sites; or taking in a game at the stadium. Magestic. For viewing only, not climbable with limited information. Lots of visitors.

Chichen Itza was such an awesome and interesting place to visit. Not only you learned about Mayan culture and architecture, you will be awed with what the Mayans knew back then. The only negative part of this attraction was the intense heat and sun shining...More

Maybe I was templed out, I've visited some outstanding ones, Uxmal, Palenque, Monte Alban, Tonina, Yaxchian - this place wasn't a patch on any of them. The thing that totally ruins the place though is the huge, tourist market place throughout the site, it totally...More

The ruins were incredible. How things were built and the purpose for why they were built makes you understand how advanced they were in their time. As the stories were told, I could truly imagine being there.
