This is an extremely impressive pyramid. It’s the only pyramid with steps on all four sides (365 in total including those to the temple) which lead to the temple at the very top. As it’s now designated one of the new Seven Wonders of The...More

This masterpiece of Maya architecture has been reconstructed to the current form by the archaeologists. It is not entirely complete but it is still amazing to behold. A real must see, along with st.Peter's in Vatican or the pyramids of Giza. Very crowded with millennials...More

I visited this place before it got too touristy. It was not expensive, no vendors, just a lot of tourists. Although there were quite a number of tourists, you could still climb to the top and back down without running into people. The steps on...More

The most striking figure at this site. Book with a tour guide—I used Amigo Tours—who will highlight all the amazing features of this site, and in an entertaining, engaging manner if you’re lucky to book with Marco or Frank. Dress appropriately—ventilated clothing, walking shoes, umbrella...More

Take an umbrella for shade and lots of water. It's astounding to think of how intelligent the Mayas were. Truly a World Wonder.

Arrive really early to avoid the crowds, especially the tourist buses around noon time. Be prepared to see an abundance of craft sellers and stands everywhere. I️t can get uncomfortable to go from one place to another with the crowds. Take your time to visit...More

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.
