Chichén Itzá is the Wonder of the Modern World, the great tourist attraction of the Yucatan Peninsula, the place that nobody wants to miss on their trip. Where to sleep to visit Chichén Itzá?
Chichen Itza is halfway between Merida (120 kilometers) and Cancun (188 kilometers), in the town of Pisté. The closest large population is Valladolid, which is situated 42 kilometers, about 45 minutes by car.
Chichen Itza opens to the 8 in the morning, so sleeping nearby saves you the early morning if you want to get in early. Only then you can visit the area with much less people and without so much heat. At night they do the light and sound show in Chichén, which you can also take advantage of to see the night before if you are staying nearby.
