Unbelievable! A definite must see. Get there early to avoid queues and heat. Wear trainers or similar not flip flops as terrain is bumpy.

Very interesting . Much history is here. I had a guide who explained to us the way in which they lived and organizau old maiasi. Deserve to be seen and recommend not to go without a guide to ensure that you do not understand much.

First experienced this architectural wonder in 2005 when you could climb it and enter into a small chamber at the top. While that's no longer a possibility, it still is amazing. Definitely go and hire a guide to take you around.

This is the main building at the Chichen Itza site. Lots of other things to do there, and lots of people wanting to sell stuff.
