driving from cancun to chichen itza

Jump to last reply

we are planning to visit chichen itza in may but feel that the bus tour takes up too much time for us. so we would like to drive on our own but wonder if it's easy and safe.

how long does it takes to drive from cancun to chichen itza on the highway? i read that the highway is paved but is there police patrolling on the highway? will it be safe to drive there early in the morning? also, are guides available at the site if we plan to arrive there early?

any suggestions and comments are appreciated. thanks in advance.
