    Chichen-Itza, Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico
    Hi! If you don't care much for crowds or if it's not imperative for you to take a tour. I suggest that you rent a car and drive to Chichen-Itza. For about 40-60$ a day, you can bank in the Chichen-Itza and the Coba ruins in a day. My friend and I rented a car early in the morning at 7:30, were on en route to Chichen Itza and arrived there at about 10am. The drive was safe and we got to drive through little towns scoping out arts and crafts. When we got to Chichen Itza, the entrance fee was 101 Mx Pesos which is about 10$. There are guides that will give you the tour of the place for about $50. But we didn't really see the point of that. We were able to catch some of what the guides were saying to other groups while we were scoping the different ruins. In reality, the site is so spectacular that you don't really want to pay attention to anyone talking. If you know what I mean. Make sure to leave Chichen Itza by 1:30 if you want to make it to Coba with Ample time to see the Coba Pyramid (the highest in all of the peninsula)and go up on it. Yes, at Coba you can still go on the ruins during your visit. The entrance to Coba was 51 Mx Pesos about 5$. Make sure to rent a bike unless you want to hike in the heat like we did with my friend. Over all, during our whole day we spent $95 for a trip to Chichen Itza and Coba, including gas for two people... a real bargain.

    DonĀ“t even think of going there on your own. You are talking about easily a few hour ride through dense desolate jungles, with no towns visible and gas stations miles apart. Trust me. You do not want to get stuck there...

    It can save you a lot of money to visit a timeshare program-- they usually reward you with cheap sightseeing tours. The tours are usually very good, BUT the timeshare program can be long, tedious, and hellish. If you decide to do one to get cheaper tickets for attractions, like Chichen-Itza, definitely go with a friend and keep saying "no" to the high-pressure sales.

    Chichen Itza is often accessed from Cancun... if you are doing that, check out the cenotes (or underground caves) that are on the way... if you take a tour, they will probably include it anyway but worth it otherwise too.... be very careful of the slippery surface once inside the dark caves....
