Chichen Itza, Cancún
Unfortunatly I missed the bus because I slept in and I regret it to this day!! I am eager to go back to see the mexican pyramids. I don't know, I have this thing for pyramids and history. Everybody said it was amazing but be prepared to walk alot of stairs!!!
Directions: quite a way from the hotel, couple hours bus rideRelated to:
Amazing ruins right in the heart of the forest. The guides are very helpful in bringing the past back to life. It gets very hot here, there's no breeze and the trees seem to capture the heat...you also have to do a lot of walking so remember to wear comfortable shoes & take a bottle of water
Directions: About 2 hours coach ride from Cancun but well worth the journeyAdd to your Trip Planner
Chichen Itza is definitely a MUST SEE!
This huge complex of magnificent Mayan ruins is one of the biggest in Mexico. It dates back to 600 AD and the Mayan civilization. It features in the center the majestic pyramid of Kulkulkan, and its accompanying buildings.
Address: About 2-3 hours drive west of Cancun.
This amazing complex used to be a major Mayan city. The temples there are amazing, and the famous pyramid is perhaps the most impressing building I have ever seen in Mexico.
Address: South of Cancun.
Chichen Itza of course! You won't be sorry. The ruins are fabulous and it's amazing to see how the mayans used to live. From Sacrificial Wells to burial grounds, you'll be impressed.
At the top of the pyramid, you're rewarded with a pretty impressive view of the grounds and the forest beyond.
Even if you love the beach and just want to rest, please don't be lazy and make a day trip to Chichén-Itza. You'll thank me later.
