11 Tips for Visiting Chichen Itza, Mexico

Although Chichen Itza is surprisingly more compact and walkable than many of Mexico’s famous Mayan sites, you should still plan for at least a three hour visit. And because it is extremely popular – attracting over 1.5 million visitors yearly – it is best to arrive close to the 8:00 a.m. opening to beat the crowds and heat. Another tip is to savor the view of El Castillo throughout the day as the sun illuminates its various sides. After sunset, you may want to stay for the spectacular, 30 minute light and sound show projected on the side of El Castillo.
