How to Visit the Mayan Ruins Without the Crowds
Dating back thousands of years in some cases, and shrouded in mystery, the Mayan ruins are among Mexico’s most visited sites. Sometimes that popularity can mean too many people, however, so here are some ways to see the ruins without the crowds.

Early-Access Tours
One of the best ways to experience the magic and mystery of the Mayan ruins of the Yucatan Peninsula—without feeling like you’re at Grand Central Station during rush hour—is by visiting before most tour buses arrive. Early-access tours of Tulum, Chichen Itza, or Coba ensure you’ll be one of the first visitors there, so you can get that perfect photo without all the tourists in it. Of course, you’ll also get expert insight into Mayan civilization from an archaeologist tour guide. It’s worth the early-morning wakeup.

VIP Tours
There’s no better way to experience a bucket-list site like Chichen Itza than on a VIP tour. You’ll feel like royalty as you head to the ruins from your Riviera Maya hotel in a luxurious private vehicle. With an archaeologist guide at your side, you’ll breeze past long entrance lines at the Mayan site to your own private entrance, and after your visit, you can watch the sun set over the ancient Mayan city while sipping unlimited margaritas on a private terrace.
