5 Things Every Traveler Should Know When Visiting Chichen Itza

A couple months ago me and my husband visited Chichen Itza while on vacation in Mexico. I posted a video about the resort HERE, we love going to Mexico and this time we decided to do some sightseeing. So what is the main attraction everyone goes to see? Chichen Itza baby, one of the 7 Wonders.

You can see the gallery above with many images. I have plenty more but I think the ones featured will give you some good visual about this magical place.

5 Things Every Traveler Should Know When Visiting Chichen Itza

  • No matter what hotel you are staying in leave as early as possible. We were planning to leave our hotel at 7 am but the rental car guy came at 8 am so we left at 8:30 am. We were very frustrated because the drive to Chechen Itza is 2 hours without traffic. So always have in mind something may come up and it can delay your departure. The earlier you get there the less crowded it will be.


  • Always carry a bottle of water if possible cold. The heat and humidity will drain you in no time so take care of your hydration first. You can also purchase at the spot (food, drinks).


  • Don’t forget portable charger and portable batteries for your phone, camera, or else. If you think you won’t use it to drain the battery trust me you will.


  • Bring sunscreen, hat and dress light because it’s so hot. I got sunburned even though I already had a tan and applied sunscreen. If your skin is fair like mine ohhh man you can’t go without the sunburn. The hat is a must I now you may not think it’s cute on you but who cares when you can damage your skin avoiding it.


  • The last but not least important ENJOY YOURSELF THERE. I’m serious don’t just pass by and take pictures, sit down for a bit and enjoy everything surrounding you. This place is unbelievable. The energy there is something that you can’t describe but feel. There are many reasons this place is one of the 7 wonders.
