The Basics

Chichén Itzá is a UNESCO World Heritage site comprised of stone buildings in various states of preservation, all of which are connected by a network of roads called sacbeob. The three most well-known are El Castillo (Kukulcán Pyramid), the Temple of Warriors, and the Great Ball Court.

Visit independently or on a group or private day trip from nearby cities on the Yucatán Peninusla, which often combine a stop here with visits to Ek Balam, Cobá, or the town of Valladolid. Alternatively, choose a tour with access to the Mayaland Resort and a buffet lunch.

Worth it! Very impressed with the cenote and Mayan temples.
Daniel our tour guide is very knowledgeable and he told us interesting stories for the duration of the tour. The buffer is ok, the cenote is much bigger than I thought and is amazing. The tour took 1.5 hours longer than usual due to traffic and we got back to our resort at 8:00 pm (picking up was at 5:50 am) but it was totally worth it.

VIP Chichen Itza Private Tour
Our tour guide Jony did it all: picking up at our hotel on time, clean and luxury transportation, toll route to save time on the road, great knowledge about Chichen Itza, astonishing cenote experience, and most importantly (per my girlfriend), Jony took great photos. We are so glad we found this tour and it’s definitely a highlight of our first Cancun trip. Highly recommended.

My partner and I enjoyed our trip to Coba, Ik Kil and Chichen Itza! Our guide Alberto was very knowledgeable and friendly. Our group had an issue with tickets when we arrived to Chichen Itza which put a damper on the trip but overall it was not a bad experience,the food was okay and the van was clean.

The tour was an amazing experience. Our guides Marco and Rodrigo were very well versed and knowledgeable in the places we visited. Chichen Itza is simply amazing and the Cenote was an extremely pleasant way to end the day. Would definitely recommend using Amigo tours for this experience. Thank you Marco, Rodrigo and our driver Ephraim.

Chichen Itza, Cenote & Valladolid Private Tour
Alberto, our guide, was incredible! He was knowledgeable, engaging, funny, and kind. Prompt pickup, great driving skills, fully stocked cooler, and clean van. Chichen Itza lived up to the hype and the kids loved the Cenote swim afterwards. The buffet lunch exceeded my expectations! Would definitely use this company again!

Chichen-itza & Cenote Private Tour
The whole trip was fab.. Cesar jacobo Martinez Galvan was our guide. He was so knowledgable but very relatable. We had many things in common & I enjoyed chatting with him about many topics whilst we were travelling. After our visit to Chichen Itza he took us to a lovely hotel in Valladolid for breakfast which was just perfect for us. Thanx for a great trip out Cesar

Chichen Itza, Ek Balam, and Hubiku Cenote Combo Tour All Fees Included
100% would recommend this tour. You do so much in a day and it's worth every penny. We were able to experience Chichen Itza early before a lot of visitors arrived. The cenote was so beautiful and enchanting. And Ek Balam was so special to experience since it's one of the few locations where you can still climb the ruins. Climbing the Acropolis and seeing the view over the jungle was so cool. Our tour guides Carlos and Tony were the best. 10/10 would recommend this tour.

Tour to Chichen, cenote & magic towns from Merida
From being picked up to dropped off, the experience was smooth and memorable. Our guide was informative, friendly, and engaging. My major issue with this tour is that we were charged 571 MXN - that is 120 MXN over what was quoted on your site when I booked the tour for my 2 sons and myself. The price on your site - 450 MXN - appeared on the ticket that was sent to me. If I didn't have extra money on me, one of us would have not been able to visit Chichen Itza.

Viator Exclusive: Chichen Itza Unique Entry, Buffet Lunch & Cenote English Tour
This was the second tour I've taken to Chichen Itza and I have to say that this time it was 400% better than my last one. Being there early was great, and the schedule made so much sense. Also skipping Valladolid that is included in some of the other tours was great, since it didn’t add anything but time in my last tour. I really liked the cenote we were taken to as well as the guides. All-in-all, I would definitely recommend this tour.

How To Get There

Chichén Itzá is between 2–2.5-hours by car from Tulum, Playa del Carmen, and Cancun respectively. Visitors to those coastal resorts will have plenty of options for day trips to the archaeological site, and departures are also available from Cozumel and Merida.

Show all


When to Get There

The best time to get to Chichén Itzá is right around opening, before the crowds arrive and the sun is high in the sky. Some private tours and small-group tours offer early access to the ancient ruins. At sunrise and sunset on the spring and fall equinoxes, the corner of the pyramid casts a shadow of Kukulkán, a feathered serpent god, and creates the illusion of a snake slithering down the north side of the pyramid.

Nearby Cenotes

The Cenote Sagrado, a sinkhole gateway into an underground body of water 197 feet (60 meters) in diameter, is an impressive natural site at Chichén Itzá. However, you can't swim in it. Another nearby cenote is Ik Kil, and some Chichén Itzá day trips combine visits to these freshwater sinkholes on the Yucatán Peninsula with a stop at the ruins.
