We spent the day here at Chichen Itza and my kids and ourselves loved it!! We learned about so much history when we came home my son did a slideshow presentation for his class. There is so much interesting things to it like when you clap beside it. it chirps back at you as a bird. Make sure you take... More

1 hour at this attraction was enough, but would have been nice to have some additional time. We went by bus from cruise ship as excursion. The weather was predicted mid 70's F. It felt like we were on the sun! The attraction is 100% direct sunlight , so I recommend appropriate sun block/ clothing. Some brought umbrellas, which seemed... More

I am getting to this review very late, but I wanted to be sure that I put on record what a wonderful historical site to visit. I am a traveler that enjoys culture and history, so when others are bored by the tour guides giving all the background - I am the annoying person in the group that asks many... More

We were staying in Playa del Carmen so this was a 2 1/2 hour bus ride leaving early in the morning. We went with Cancun Adventures and our guide Oscar was very informative and patient with all my questions! I wish we had more time on our own to explore and the lunch provided was gross but being there was... More

We came here with a tour guide that had been offered to us in Cancun, and I was excited to see one of the great wonders. I found there to be so many market stalls surrounding the ruins, with sellers constantly pushing you to buy something. It's definitely something to tick off the bucket list, but at the same time,...

I suppose that if you come to Yucatan then you have to come to Chichen Itza as it is the most famous site but that doesnt mean it is the best. It is certainly covering a large area and unlike some of the other sites has been almost totally been cleared of trees and is easy to navigate. Although there... More

The tour with experiencexcaret.com was one of the best ones we did in Mexico. Around 12 hours! Santos, Victor and Amid were the best guides we had during Spring Break. We felt safe, entertained and ended with a lot of historical knowledge. We stopped at Chichén Itza during the equinox and we were able to see the serpent formation. I... More

Fantastic tour. Get a guide for two hours. Then explore on your own. You can feel the history. It's no wonder that this has become one of the wonders of the world. If you need to buy souvenirs to bring home this is the place to haggle barter and then walk away. You will derive their best price every time.... More

Get a guide so you know what you are looking at. Our tour guide was so knowledgeable and the site was easy to reach because we stayed at the Mayaland Hotel adjacent to the site, I'll also review that. There is a self done walking tour of the 10 or so buildings. For the price of admission, you get an... More

Beautiful archaeological ruins, really interesting and very well restored, so you get a good sense of what it must have been like, but the guide was the worst of all the sites we visited in Mexico. He droned on about mathematics, which I'm sure have great relevance, but really, who wants an hour long lecture on mathematics on holiday? A... More
