Looking for a little intel here. We are cruising in February and will port in Cancun. We have 10 hours in port. My husband really wants to rent a car and drive to Chichen Itza for a couple hours. Just wondering if anyone has done this and if there are any problems with time, road, safety, etc.
Thanks for any help
We drove from Cancun to Chichen Itza about 10 years ago, there was an excellent highway between the two, it was nearly completely devoid of any traffic, but a little pricey, as I recall. It runs adjacent to local roads which are free, but much slower. But, as I recall, it's a pretty good hike between the two, maybe a little far for so little time? I'm sure you can figure that part out. We stayed at Mayaland, it is an incredible place adjacent to the ruins. When we first went to Chichen Itza on a previous trip (an excursion from Cozumel), I only went because my wife made me. I left the ruin site with my jaw hanging, with the thought "we're coming back here!" Definitely go if you can.
