Can anyone provide info on getting from Cozumel to Chichén Itzá? Also additional info on Chichén Itzá would be much appreciated.

Which cruise will you be on? I cannot think of any cruise which will be in Cozumel long enough for someone to tour Chichen Itza.

The ship arrives at 2:30 PM and departs the following day at 6:00 PM. By air taxi I'm hoping it's possible to make a visit to Chichén Itzá.

What are other, alternative, Mayan ruins that may be reached with that time limit?

Tulum is more realistic.

Thank you for the fast replies.

I would, however, appreciate hearing from anyone who can provide info on any possibility, however remote, of reaching Chichén Itzá from Cozumel.

Chichen Itza is about 160 miles west of Cozumel.
There should be some tour companies that would get you there an back on time....I was in Progresso that was a 2 1/2 hour drive from Chichen Itza and made it back in plenty of time. If you can get there, it's wonderful, I've been to most of the Mayan ruins on the Eastern side....and Chichen Itza was the very best....If that doesn't fit into your time frame, Tulum is a wonderful site too...and only a 30 minute or so bus ride....watch as your ship docks in Cozumel..you can see the outline of Tulum on the horizon...it's the only ruin built on the ocean....Happy cruising and ruining....

Tulum is on the main land. It is a 50 minute power ferry ride one way, and then about 45 minutes by bus from the ferry dock. We enjoyed it tremendously, but on RCCL we had 8 hours. We spent almost 2 getting there and 2 back, and really had only 1-1/2 hours there which is not enough. Sounds like you will be port a more reasonable time.
