Chichen Itza, Isla Mujeres and Xcaret should be visited with tours contracted or on behalf of one

5 months ago

Hello, everyone, I'm traveling to Cancun in January and I'd like to know if you should visit these places on behalf of one hiring a vehicle for example, or if it's really better to hire tours, in which case which companies would recommend me?
Thank you.

Better on your own, if you're interested in going at 9:00 when they open, I'd make the night at the Chichen-itza hotel, it's great and it's not expensive. There is also the option for 300 pesos or for 13euros to visit the ruins in an hour and a half of 17.00 hours until 18.30 hours, there are hardly any tourists, we would enter 20 people.

Going to women's island the boat from cancun is a little more expensive - last year the cheapest jetty was sam port, but now it costs just as much as in juarez port and is less frequent. We went for 265 pesos from Port Juarez with Captain Hook Pirate Ship Maritime Terminal Puerto Juarez 77520 Cancun, Quintana Roo

Xcaret seems very sweet, but... that's up to you. I liked it very much and more looking at the beaches of the caribbean, the kaan lagoon luum 100 pesos. It's near tulum, if you're ready to see the ruins then you can come closer.

For all of this you'd need a rental car, they're cheap and worth it.

Hi, it suits you from Playa del Carmen, if you do it on your own by taking the route to Tulum to avoid the collection routes, there are parts that are too narrow and drive too hard, they don't use the turn lights to keep you in mind. If you do it in excursions I think it's better since they take you to a cenote and Valladolid, going on your own makes you go dumb because you take a lot longer and you don't take advantage of the day.

Hello Josefina...sip, it's better on your own and with a car, rent a car are cheap in my view.. and you move with your own time and it'll always be cheaper for you to tour.. watch out with the police you do everything right so you don't have problems.. ( take advantage of that )

Hello Josefina, I was in Mexico from 11 to 24/08, I rented a car the first week I was in Playa del Carmen, I did everything with a rental car, the routes are well marked zero problem. Chichen Itza was out at 6:00 a.m. when there were still a few people out by noon. Ojp, with the heat, it's early walks. I went to women's island from Playa del Carmen, there's parking and the crossing is not cheap don't encourage me to go on the most economical frequency, on Isla Mujeres goes to North Beach it's dreamy. I'm warning you that Playa del Carmen and Tulum are full of sargazo, far less has Cancun, but it's still a problem. I went 15 days and I could go little to the beach.

Rent a car, it's better. You handle your time and take all the photos you want without pressure. I recommend you get there early, because around noon the place is full.

Inside there's a lot of stalls to buy handicrafts, if you're going to buy something, don't accept the first option, most of the people in there are just going to fuck you up. There's a couple of posts where you're gonna get exactly the same thing, half or even a third of the price.

Chichen is far away, but the tours want to sell you things to forces and what's worth is the pyramid, they make you lose all day, he was the only one to pack up and I regret it. Xcaret is better on your own in packages are very expensive to get out of Playa del Carmen you pay a van in 15 pesos, and back 25 pesos, the best thing is to stay at Playa del Carmen from there everything is closer because it is small, from the airport you pay a well-equipped bus for less than 200 pesos are called ADO, as on the beach you can walk without any problem if you stay close to 5th Avenue. You can take the very worthwhile ferry to Cozumel Island, there's a lot of sargazo on women's island and in Cancun, it's crowded with people you don't enjoy and the distances are long. We rented a car the last few days from Playa del Carmen and went to Bacalar lagoon with 7 colours of fresh water with cenotes, rich food, tranquility, it's worth a lot. You could take advantage and go to the pyramid too and Bacalar when you rent the car we did it with firefly but there's a lot of condiaries. It all depends on travel, whether you bring kids or not, and we deliver it to Cancun at the airport when we get home. That's my advice. We rode most of the Mayan riverbank.

There's a lot of sargazo on women's island, if it's pretty it's small but the water's full of sargazo. You're gonna love Cozumel Island, I just went in early September, there's a ferry from Cancun and also from Playa del Carmen. Xcaret's worth a lot, but it's expensive. Chichen Itza and Bacalar fall in love with you, but they're a little far from Cancun. That's where you'd have to see your chances of going on tour or on your own.

If you're not one of the people who likes to drive, it's always better to take a tour because you don't have to spend extra on renting cars and petrol. Besides, it already includes you and a guide that explains a lot more than you can see anywhere you visit, I can advise you and help you put together a tour package so you can see that it suits you better, I'm local and I love the activities.

Hello! On your own it's very practical and above all economic, there's information everywhere, the ADO buses, depart from a specific terminal with timetables set for the main tourist points, tours are widely recommended of course with the proper cost involved.
Cheer up to experiment without a tour, you'll have a great time!

We recently made the HUGE mistake of booking a return airport transfer online and a trip to Chichen Itza for two. Paid using Paypal and since payment made, the company won't return emails or acknowledge this - doesn't make me feel too confident visiting Cancun if that's the way visitors are treated. The company is ESL Transfers - https://www.esltransfers.com/en
Avoid at all costs!!!!
