I'm starting to plan my Mexico-trip and its difficult for me to estimate the time, which is needed for the mayan sights, particularly Chitzen Itza, Uxmal, Palenque and Tulum... How many hours an average visit will take?
I know it is a tricky question, because every visitor has its own pace, but usually I tend to make sights quicker than the average backpacker... For instance for me two (full) days were sufficient at Angkor Wat or Petra (just to give you a comparison).
We are staying in Cancun, and would like to visit CI. How long could one spend there (obiviously it will depend on what kind of traveller you are, but what have people found is a reasonable amount of time there?)
We are wondering if we would be able to fit in a visit to Ria Lagartos Biosphere Reserve, Celestun Wildlife Refuge, Ek Balam, and Cenote Dzitnup, in the same day as going to CI from Cancun, or is this too ambitious? Is this part of the trip a whole day trip, in and of itself?
We're staying in Cancun and don't have plans to spend overnight in the CI area.
Thanks in advance!
we are thinking about possibly staying 3 nights in chichen itza--are taxis readily available to get around to restaurants? i also read the public bus was popular, how late does it run? thank you
I'd like to go to Chichen Itza . Is it cheaper to get off the ship and book a tour? Or do I run the risk of it being sold out?
Hi all, I'm not a big fan of hotel tours and after reading a lot of reviews I am hesistant to rent a car.
My question is I would like to see the Chichen-Itza ruins on a Sunday, and I would like to take a public bus or private bus from Playa De carmen. Does anyone know if the buses run on sunday and how much it would cost? First or 2nd class is okay and I would like to get there around 9 am when the ruins open.
P.S. I tried to look at the bus schedule located in the Yutacan.com vacation site but it wasn't working.
Thanks in advance.
What are the hours of operation and can one leave the site for lunch and return in the afternoon on the same ticket? Thanks, ohillary
We have a rental car, now how do I get there ? We are leaving from the Cancun airport. Exact turn by turn directions anyone ? Help. Thanks, The Walker Family
