Chichen Itza is one of the most incredible ancient cities in the world! This Mayan ruin is a Unesco wonder and is reasonably accessible. The archeological site has a ramp entrance to the ticket booth and entryway, which is flat and cemented, making it easy to navigate. As you explore the ancient city, you'll come across many paths of tightly packed dirt scattered with slightly loose and embedded stones and occasional tree roots that you'll need to navigate. But don't worry! The trails are wide, it's easy to move around, and your guide will be available to help.

If you need to take a bathroom break, there's an accessible restroom inside the main entrance building, and other accessible restrooms can be found in a small shopping center area where you can buy souvenirs and snacks.
