Tips for your trips. Tourist information. Official websites.

Chichén Itzá is a renowned archaeological site located in the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico. It was once a prominent pre-Columbian city built by the Maya civilization and is now recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the New Seven Wonders of the World.

Location: Chichén Itzá (map) is situated in the eastern part of Yucatan, Mexico, approximately 120 kilometers (75 miles) east of the city of Merida.

As of my knowledge cutoff date in September 2021, the admission fee for Chichén Itzá was around 481 MXN (Mexican pesos) for adults and free for children under the age of 13. Please note that prices may have changed, so it’s advisable to check the latest rates before your visit.

Main attractions: The centerpiece of Chichén Itzá is the iconic *El Castillo (also known as the Temple of Kukulcan, map), a stepped pyramid with a unique design and astronomical significance. Other notable structures include the Temple of the Warriors (map), the Great Ball Court, the Observatory (El Caracol), and the Sacred Cenote.

Cenote swimming: The Sacred Cenote (map), a natural sinkhole, was considered a sacred site by the Maya. However, swimming is not permitted in this particular cenote. If you wish to experience cenote swimming, there are several cenotes in the vicinity of Chichén Itzá where you can enjoy this activity.

Sunlight phenomenon: During the spring and autumn equinoxes (around March 21st and September 21st), an incredible phenomenon occurs at El Castillo. The sunlight creates the illusion of a snake slithering down the pyramid’s staircase, a representation of the feathered serpent deity, Kukulcan.

Facilities: Chichén Itzá offers visitor services such as restrooms, souvenir shops, and food stalls. It is advisable to bring sunscreen, a hat, comfortable shoes, and sufficient water to stay hydrated throughout your visit.
